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 could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life
My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.
I need to remember this for uniforms.
Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!
I seriously think I’m fucking myself up with how violent and disturbing my vampire literature paper is right now. I chose to write a vampiric adventure based off of a vampire from an already written story… and well… it involved hypnosis, children, and underlying sexuality.
I really hope I don’t freak my professor out with this and he doesn’t think I need therapy… but for some reason I feel like that is a distinct possibility…
On the bright side, this is the first creative writing I’ve done in years (besides a short little thing I wrote a couple months back that I don’t think counts for anything) and it feels so good to write again!!!!
