Dad Protests For Changing Tables On Men's Restrooms

 

The dawn of patriarchy and gender stereotypes in parenting is starting. As the world embraces a more liberal approach in the gender gap, more people are starting to take part in making equality happen. 

In an article published by UNILAD UK, a media company that provides "social news" and entertainment, reported that there is a popular tweet circulating where it showed a dad trying to enlighten the public that fathers are also responsible in changing the diaper of their children. This is why they need a changing table on their restrooms. According to the article, a changing table is not only an object of utility but it also represents a lot.

Changing babies can be a difficult task to handle especially if there are no adequate location and utility around. Donte Palmer, a father of three young boys from Jacksonville, Florida became famous after he started a campaign that introduces the necessary changes that needed to be done in men’s bathrooms. This campaign sparked serious discussions because it showed that Palmer’s problem is not an isolated case and it also resonates with the fathers across the planet.

Many fathers were prompted to share a photograph of them changing their babies in the men’s bathroom. These photos show how they come up with makeshift ways; on laps and in car boots. “Regardless of color, regardless of social background, regardless of your financial status. One thing that we all can agree on is being a parent. And that is why this campaign is so important when it comes to fathers around the world.” Palmer said in an interview with UNILAD UK.

The trending campaign with the hashtag #SquatForChange, have reached the attention of celebrity dad, John Legend, who Instagrammed a video of him trying to change his own kid, Miles, on top of a piano. Palmer also shared that the campaign became successful as significant changes have been made, and major companies are starting to listen to these concerns.
