This dad's viral post made an important point about diaper changing tables in men's restrooms
A dad’s Facebook post about diaper changing tables and parenting equality is going viral for a wonderful reason.
Clint Edwards blogs about fatherhood over at “No Idea What I’m Doing: A Daddy Blog.” Edwards’ took to Facebook to write about the major “win” at his Oregon church recently.
In the Facebook post, Edwards noted that a bench in the men’s restroom recently went missing. The bench was important, because it was the only surface where dads could change diapers in the men’s restroom.
Edwards went on to explain that, too often, changing tables only exist in women’s bathrooms because society expects women to bear to heaviest parenting loads – and that’s not cool for moms or dads.
Edwards stressed that diaper changing – and the other responsibilities of parenting – should be shared equally between men and women.
Edwards followed up that this story has a happy ending: His church put in a changing table in the men’s bathroom, so men now have a safe and clean place to change their kids.
