I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.

I’d never even considered this but I support it

I have seriously always wondered about this. I mean, most malls and such here have “family” rest rooms with change tables but I mean I have watched many a father bring his child out to the car to change because they don’t have rest room access. I am SO glad this is a post!!

Some have microwaves in them to heat your popcorn before a movie

Swedish third league team Kiruna IF are from now on playing in rainbow jerseys and are working towards becoming the first LGBT certified sports organization.The toilets in their home arena will be gender neutral, the team will give lectures in schools and players will take part in the Pride Festival in Stockholm.

Our sport is very masculine. You must have a high pain threshold. You should not be a sissy or gay. It is terms of abuse in our sport. Just because of that we want to do this, now we want to change this.

One hundred people around the team, from players to leaders and caretakers, is going on a full day and three half-day lectures on openness to other religions, gender, and particularly sexual orientation.

"Kiruna is macho city number one. We drive the biggest trucks, hit with sledgehammers in the mine and play hockey. The contrasts are now becoming extreme. We want to break the myth of the northern man, and if Kiruna and Kiruna hockey want to evolve, there must be room for everyone."
