Men can change diapers too...

After another looooooong car ride, we are back home.
Oregon was fantastic, and I'll finish the recap soon.

But right now, I'm grumpy, I'm tired and I'm still really, really miffed about the fact that 99 percent of the restaurants/gas stations we stopped at along the way only had changing stations in the womens restrooms.


Now I understand that this might come as a shock to some people, but contrary to popular belief, men do take part in the whole baby making process and thus are equipped with the skills required to take care of said children.

Part of keeping a baby healthy, happy and socially acceptable is changing dirty diapers regularly.

So here's a little newsflash to the numerous Wendys, McDonalds, Subways and Chevrons in Oregon and Idaho:

Men can (and should) change diapers too.

Let's give the mamas -- and single dads, for that matter -- a break, okay?
Who knew the fast food industry was so archaic and sexist?

I'm seriously considering starting a facebook group -- the best way to light a fire under a cause.

End rant.

Also, kudos to Utah for taking a stand against diaper discrimination.

Also, also, it should be stated that Reece does not share my indignation on this particular topic.

Don't tell Reece, but I'm a tiny bit suspicious about this whole "there's no diaper place in there!" claim....did you actually enter the men's rooms and see with your own eyes? :D (kidding....mostly....)
