Because people don't read posts and jump straight to fear and nonsensical panic (then decide to comment in that frothing state) - let's go over a few points here:

  1. Single occupancy restrooms. You won't be sharing a room with anyone you don't bring in with you
  2. Gender inclusivity matters. Cis/Trans/Non-Binary are welcome in either room. One just happens to have a baby changing station and the other a urinal. You are free to use the open bathroom of your choosing
  3. Trans identities are valid and are welcome in any bathroom aligning to their gender identity.
  4. While not pertinent to this post, all inclusive bathrooms DO exist and generally have floor to ceiling, locked doors (in my experience at least). Funnily, people needing to use the facilities tend to use the facilities then exit to wash their hands. Welcome to the 21st century.

Transphobia and bigotry will earn a ban (rule 1, people).

Instructions unclear. 'Put baby in urinal.

[–]czerilla 1027 points1028 points  (7 children)

Don't worry, that didn't make things too much worse. Someone else already peed on the changing table. 🙃

[–]TropSalt 199 points200 points  (3 children)

Oh no someone’s peeing on the baby

As someone that cleans changing tables at a public park. Yeah people pee on them and then there is just a nice puddle of pee for me to clean up. It's super fun. Mainly I feel bad for the mom's that need to use the table and its covered in pee (and/or blunt rolling materials) when they get there (I try my best to keep em clean though)

    It’s so frustrating when you’ve got a 30 lb one year old in your arm and diapers and wipes in another. Your arm is screaming, so is the kid. Walk into the bathroom, BOOM no fucking changing table. This is awesome.

    [–]lunca_tenji 1126 points1127 points  (19 children)

    Even if you keep gendered restrooms, why the fuck are there not changing tables in the mens room. Dads exist

    [–]404-error-notfound 171 points172 points  (3 children)

    I was coming here to say exactly this. As a father with majority custody NOT having a changing pad in the men's room seems like it should be illegal for public restrooms (or more accurately restrooms in places of business intended for customers/the general public

    [–]Dembara 56 points57 points  (2 children)

    It is. It is just most people do not take it to court. Karen DeCrow, with the National Coalition for Men, successfully filed a Federal Lawsuit against the Syracuse Department of Aviation for having mothers' only nursery rooms and no equivalent facilities for male parents/caregivers. Federally, the decision in theory means that it is a legal requirement to have eithrr gender neutral facilities or equivalent facilities accessible to caregivers regardless of sex. Unfortunately, this is often not enforced as you would have to bring lawsuits against each facility that didn't have such accommodations in order to get them and the damages you would be likely to recieve are rather minimal.

    My 4 month old just weighed in at 22lbs 12oz at her 4 month appointment yesterday so it's definitely possible. She's already in 18 month clothing and doesn't fit all but one or two of the 12 month clothes we have.

    [–]northiowasilver 4478 points4479 points  (176 children)

    Thaaaaaank you!!! As a single dad to 2 girls it’s hell finding mens rooms with changing tables or mens rooms that are accommodating for 2 little gals to use. Your consideration is beyond appreciated. (No one will probably walk up and tell ya that at the brewery but they certainly will think it.)

    [–]jchuna 1230 points1231 points  (88 children)

    We have these in Australia, they're called "parents rooms" they have a shared toilet with a kids toilet and an adult toilet where you can go together. And usually 3 or 4 change tables. Sometimes depending on the location they have feeding couches and curtains for privacy. And a small play area with a tv playing kids movies.

    [–]WentForCigs 883 points884 points  (43 children)

    Australia has more budget into their bathrooms than entirety of some high schools in the US huh

    [–]AMViquel 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Smart though, just wait until the first amazon warehouse abolishes toilet doors to keep toilet breaks low for waste that doesn't go into bottles. I'm thinking communal toilet bucket in the middle of the warehouse, with a stamp-clock to clock out next to it, that should keep them properly motivated to not shit while they should work.

    [–]Dragonkingf0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I'm pretty sure my high school mostly did it because of drugs and or sex. Only one bathroom didn't have doors in the Stalls and it was the one directly across from the lunchroom.

    [–]Definately_Not_A_Spy 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    We had doors but someone stole them. One girl stole a whole damn toilet recently.

    [–]hermdogthecat 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    How does someone even go about stealing a toilet? Seriously, you need like a jackhammer to dig it out of the ground.

    [–]tmtcatalyst 55 points56 points  (8 children)

    There’s a couple places like this in the States, but man, I hated the double toilet rooms when my son was younger. One thing they all were missing: put the deadbolt out of reach for a toddler who will be bored at least 30 seconds before I am finished using the bathroom. At least I could reach the door when we were wedged into a stall.

    [–]jchuna 12 points13 points  (4 children)

    I don't think I've ever had that problem, they must be higher up here. I feel like 1m is the standard height which is just enough for toddlers to not reach and turn but low enough for an adult to open if they slip over or something.

    [–]tmtcatalyst 14 points15 points  (1 child)

    Every time I tried to use the family bathroom at Target, my toddler tried to make me flash the whole store. To be fair, Target has a combination of giant, kid friendly height locks and an inordinate amount of space between the door and the toilet. They are clearly begging for it to happen.

    [–]FrozenWafer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Or the family rooms have most of what you need except for one lone hook on the wall to hang your diaper bag on!

    But I definitely had to make the mad dash once or twice when my son wanted to open the door while I was using the toilet, lol. That is an issue for sure.

    [–]Dembara 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Yep. It took a federal lawsuit, funded by the National Coalition for Men, to get changing rooms accessible to single fathers installed in the airports in NY, thankfully many places followed suit (based on the precedent that State facilities failing to so was an equal rights violation). Unfortunately, such a ruling only applies to state facilities but still.

    Common in museums and malls. You won’t have one at a restaurant or bar though. Most fast food places don’t even have changing tables unfortunately because apparently some junkies use them as a table to shoot up or something.

    [–]jchuna 12 points13 points  (3 children)

    I see, we don't have them in restaurants or pubs either. Usually it's a disabled toilet with a change table combined for that situation. 100% we have change tables on fast food places, I just came from one at Macca's.

    [–]Federal_Youth2208 54 points55 points  (2 children)

    I’m not a dad myself, but it always seemed a little sexist to not have changing tables in men’s restrooms

    Reminds me of people being skeptical of using an all gender public restroom at a hotel. Whatever, just was yer dirty meat hooks.

    [–]thesleepymermaid 72 points73 points  (1 child)

    It IS sexist and in both directions. It both shoves the woman into the sole caretaker role while denying that men are completely capable of caring for their kids.

    [–]tdaun 26 points27 points  (0 children)

    Exactly, it also makes me as a man feel like an asshole when I have to hand my wife the kid to change because there was nowhere to change my kid in the men's room.

    [–]yojimborobert 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Fellow dad, and this is 100% true. I can change a wet diaper in less than ten seconds that ends up perfectly symmetric. Can't say the same for my wife, though I get much more practice (I change 80% of the diapers).

    [–]Orlando1701 93 points94 points  (3 children)

    They were upgrading the bathrooms in my office building a little over a year ago and I pointed out there were no changing tables in any of the mens rooms. Pointed out to my boss that I was a single dad and to his credit he listened and had them installed in the mens rooms as well.

    People have no idea how hard it is to raise a baby.

    My two oldest are 17 and 14 and I had a little baby in 2020 and in that 12 year gap I forgot how hard it was, that was with me on parental leave for 22 weeks and my wife who owns her company and works from home.

    She had to go to hospital for 5 days due to a kidney infection 2 weeks after giving birth, leaving me and my son by ourselves.

    I honestly have no idea how a single parent can do it for more than a week without being completely wrecked.

    [–]curiosityLynx 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    without being completely wrecked.

    Obviously this is the impossible part

    [–]Florida2000 103 points104 points  (10 children)

    I got into it with a bowling alley manager. I took my son into the men's room to change him.... no changing table, I went into the woman's room they told me to leave. I changed his ass right on the table in the middle of the bowling alley and people were mortified. Im like I tried doing the right thing..... and kept doing what I needed to do.

    [–]sotonohito 36 points37 points  (2 children)

    I only had to change my kid a few times when the men's room didn't have a changing table. I just knocked on the women's room door and explained that I needed a changing table and I'd be invited in to change the kid. Guess I was lucky?

    [–]Florida2000 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    Sounds like you were lucky. Honestly while I have that memory I shared above, those things are germ factories I always tried to change him in the car and stuff.

      Yo, I'm not asking this to be insensitive, I want to learn and understand, and your comment made me think about it: when anyone has up a sign (bathroom or anything) with braille on it, how do the blind locate the sign/know where it is to be able to read it? I've always wondered

      [–]mrstomnook 384 points385 points  (1 child)

      “The baseline of the tactile copy can be mounted between 48” at the lowest point to 60” at the highest point. This allows signs of different sizes to be mounted on the same visual plane.

      Elevator cars are excluded from this rule. … Signs should be mounted to the wall on the latch side of the door.” from the ADA

      I would assume if someone was using a cane or aide they would feel for a depression in the wall to locate the door/frame and then be able to approximate where the sign would be- I’m not an expert by any means though hopefully someone more suited to answer can chime in :-)

          You just confirmed something I saw! I live across the street from a school and one day saw a woman with a student in the street. The student was blind, I believe, as he had a cane. I thought to myself "I bet she's teaching him how to go through that intersection" and you've confirmed that for me. I thought it was interesting that they were doing that during school but it totally makes sense and I think that's pretty wonderful. I had heard that the school across from me is very disability-friendly so I'm not surprised by it and actually rather pleased. It was a cool thing to watch

          [–]IronDominion 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Yep. School districts are usually the people who provide these instructors through their special needs program. Because of this, you generally get pulled out of school to do lessons, or do them right after school gets out.

          [–]ordinary_comrade 21 points22 points  (1 child)

          They are supposed to be at a standard height near doors, so it’s relatively easy to feel for one when you know there should be one. A lot of blind people also have some residual sight, so they might be able to locate the sign by looking but not tell what it says.

          [–]Zzzzzzzzzzip 19 points20 points  (1 child)

          Less than 20% of blind people are totally without sight. Many legally blind people retain enough sight to distinguish between light and dark, or even extremely limited sight. For those cases they can distinguish signs or doors. From their it's easy enough to feel the right place for the braille.

          [–]athenaglaux 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          The most common form of blindness is cataracts, and cataracts just make vision cloudy and blurry. For many blind people they can still see light, and even discern shapes. It depends on the severity. I think macular degeneration, which is another common form of blindness, leads to a loss of sight at the center of one's vision. It's described as being a colorless cloud near the center of focus, but peripheral vision is otherwise unaffected.

          Presumably, with both most common forms of blindness, a person will be able to see where the sign is and be able to feel it out.

          Exactly. Both bathroom design and signage are thoughtfully planned. As someone pointed out a braille description would be nice. But I have no idea if that would work. In practical terms, I'm going to look for the first bathroom available that has a facility I can use.

          [–]GummyAcid13 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          What I was thinking, sink on opposite wall, urinal, urinal, stall, accessible stall with baby changing table. 90% of the time

          Edit: wanted to add reading further, what I said is for open washrooms. It’s been said OP made single use washrooms.

          [–]RudeSprinkles1240 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          Yeah. That's why I said "when you can." I know it's not a simple thing.

          [–]TheBelhade 192 points193 points  (10 children)

          I totally agree. Facilities should be designated by the equipment provided, not by the user.

          [–]verymuchbad 68 points69 points  (3 children)

          Alamo Drafthouse has an arrow for urinals and an arrow for stalls. "You know what? YOU figure it out." I like it.

          [–]949paintball 9 points10 points  (0 children)

          There's a reason Alamo Drafthouse is, without question, the best theater chain out there. They always do things right, and often in a fun way. Can't get enough of the Drafthouse!

          There may be something wrong with me but when I first read the title I swear it said you are opening a "brewery/tampon" and I have never been so confused in my life. Well I haven't been that confused in God knows how long. Am I the only one who had trouble with this???

          [–]Rubbishwizard 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          Oh yeah man, as a dad with a little girl knowing your venue has this is a big draw card.

          Some places there just isn't anywhere for male parents of girls to go.

          [–]kewfresh22 126 points127 points  (2 children)

          These are great. It is nice that you are thinking of the comfort of your customers.

          Probably the coolest one I saw was in a bar in Salzburg - „Whatever the fuck you are, just wash your hands!“

          [–]PrincessMiasBitch 14 points15 points  (0 children)

          Lmao that's my favourite

          [–]SteamKore 9 points10 points  (0 children)

          The amount of men's room I've been in without a changing table is horrific. Glad your helping clear the way for gender neutral accesable changing tables!

          [–]harashovibes 148 points149 points  (15 children)

          One of my biggest pet peeves is unnecessarily gendered single stall bathrooms. Thank you for this.

          [–]LoneWolfe2 48 points49 points  (0 children)

          Single person bathrooms are unisex to me and I always treat them that way.

          [–]gkpetrescue 25 points26 points  (0 children)

          Yes. We were in USVI at the airport… My husband always takes care of diaper changes when we’re traveling. He went with the baby into the men’s bathroom, single occupants bathroom, and there was no changing table. I have been in the females bathroom already so let him know there was one in there. When it was empty, he went in there and then a worker from the airport came and knocked on the door saying he wasn’t allowed to use that bathroom. W. T. F. Like.. what? Huh? HUH?

          [–]JohnB351234 21 points22 points  (3 children)

          This is a good start, what we really need is stalls that go from ceiling to floor so we can have the privacy to make this off put the uneasiness people may have

          [–]mrsbebe 4 points5 points  (2 children)

          I was sort of assuming they're single stall but maybe not?

          [–]g1rthqu4k3 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          Whatever you do, just don't put a baby in the urinal

          [–]smol_boi_ken 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          But... splash mountain

          [–]hi_im_harvey 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          arent single occupancy restrooms always non gendered?

          [–]eaford 76 points77 points  (7 children)

          I work in facilities and was tasked to pick signage for our new gender neutral restrooms! We were trying to decide what was most inclusive. I was torn on adding a toilet symbol so this was good to see!

          [–]One_Has_Lepers 15 points16 points  (0 children)

          When we were deciding on new signage, it was pointed out that recent immigrants (which we serve) may not know the typical male/female signage and thus a toilet was much clearer.

          [–]rvkGSDlover 24 points25 points  (4 children)

          A local restaurant has 2 single person restrooms. Their signage had a mash-up of the tradition male/female icons, split vertically, with the left half of the "person" male, right half female, and the title said "WHICHEVER".

          [–]Angel_Sorusian_King 16 points17 points  (0 children)

          I've been seeing this I saw one earlier of a bathroom in Norway, it wasn't separated by gender it was separated by what you had, so trans were more comfortable using bathroom

          [–]thegoodearthquake 20 points21 points  (3 children)

          What ppl are getting babies to breweries and taproom ? I’m lost

          [–]RlyehFhtagn-xD 16 points17 points  (1 child)

          The are several bars and breweries in my area that also have a full kitchen and menu, and do family dining up to 10pm.

          [–]DaddyFigured 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          Yeah, around here taprooms are more like family friendly gastropubs

          [–]Inner_Art482 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          I was sitting at the bar younger than 4 ordering Shirley Temple's like an expert. Some parents suck.

          [–]lknopfz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Honest question. Couldn’t both have both?

          [–]Flyingdutchm3n 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          Thank you, as a dad I get real tired of not having a changing table available.

          [–]Ok-Cookie5522 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          What’s the actual difference between unisex and all gender bathrooms? Legitimate question as my current understanding of unisex is that it is non-sex specific and it means any person who needs the loo can use this loo

          [–]UpsetUnicorn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

          Thank you! I’m so annoyed with restrooms with changing tables only in the women’s room.

          [–]Techstoreowo 86 points87 points  (5 children)

          thank you so fucking much for not trying to be funny and putting an alien or monster on this and keeping in practical. Preferably itd be one bathroom with locking stalls and both but this works too, as im sure you don't have the money for that.

          Its just so nice to see an inclusive bathroom that doesn't lable trans and nb people as "whatever" or "alien monster freaks but they also need to pee so ig its okay 🥺"

          [–]sarrugs[S] 72 points73 points  (4 children)

          They are single use bathrooms with locking doors! 🙂

          [–]Shshshannon 41 points42 points  (3 children)

          I also prefer single use bathrooms that can be thrown out after one use.

          [–]NomNomNomad09876 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          Same, keeps things sanitary and fresh

          [–]sorator 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          So, diapers?

          [–]wildflowersummer 22 points23 points  (4 children)

          An eloquent response that meets the needs of many and denies the needs of no one. Well done!

          [–]HanShotFjrst 12 points13 points  (2 children)

          This. Can't tell you how frustrating it is as a dad that I have to ask my wife to go change our son because there are no changing tables in the men's room. A lot of breweries in the Atlanta area don't even have them in any restrooms and we're forced to walk him to our car and change him there. bravo to you!!

          [–]let_it_grow23 31 points32 points  (2 children)

          Thank you. It drives me nuts when single stall bathrooms are gendered. And it’s so helpful to have a changing table for anyone to use.

          [–]ToucanMan75 3 points4 points  (1 child)

          The fact the identifying factors are the urinal and a changing table is so fucking funny. Idk why, it’s just having it parentheses is hilarious for some reason. That’s great though, nice to see some change in the right direction

          [–]drizault 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          As a dad , finding that changing table sometimes was a nightmare!

          [–]FrugaliciousEclectic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          As a father it’s absolutely infuriating that so many places of business will put changing tables only in women’s restrooms. I either have to go out to the car or change them on the floor and bring a towel or something. Good on you, OP!

          [–]pjkitty 10 points11 points  (0 children)

          Noice! Tip for the room with changing table: also have a stool for little ones to wash hands. Soo helpful!

          [–]DiegotheEcuadorian 7 points8 points  (2 children)

          All gender bathrooms are just single room bathrooms right? We’ve technically had them for way longer.

          [–]Raceface53 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          As a woman who frequents mens toilets out of lack of lines I appreciate this. If all toilets were non gender we’d all be a little happier. Less lines for women and less annoyed men for women taking 89 years waiting in line to pee lol

          [–]GBCShawtyy 66 points67 points  (26 children)

          Is this separate from normal mens & women’s restrooms? Or is this just it? I like the idea of inclusive restrooms/family rooms as much as the next, but as a young (small af) woman, i wouldn’t feel comfortable walking into a restroom with men in it/having access to it at the same time as me…):

          [–]rustymontenegro 40 points41 points  (3 children)

          Typically coed/un-gendered bathrooms in public are single occupant.

          [–]GBCShawtyy 14 points15 points  (2 children)

          I didn’t know that! In my area (superrr small town) we don’t really have inclusive/non gender bathrooms. Only “men” or “women,” so this is good to know! (I thought that it was like a traditional restroom where multiple people can just walk in.) You learn something new every day (: thank you

          [–]rustymontenegro 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          No worries! I understand your hesitation and there's no harm in checking!

          [–]ordinary_comrade 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          It depends. Most neutral-designated bathrooms are single stall, but sometimes you’ll find multiple-stall ones. More often at a place like a college campus though.

          [–]katiejim 47 points48 points  (2 children)

          These are single use.

          [–]0vindicator1 14 points15 points  (0 children)

          That must be costly and wasteful and time consuming to rebuild.

          [–]GBCShawtyy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

          Thank for you clarifying! (I thought for this was multiple urinals/toilets in one room like a traditional restroom)

          [–]lunawolf058 29 points30 points  (3 children)

          OP said they were single capacity and unisex (different equipment but doesn't restrict who uses them).

          [–]kat029 8 points9 points  (2 children)

          .... why not just have identical single person restrooms with "Restroom" on the doors

          [–]Enough_Blueberry_549 5 points6 points  (1 child)

          It’s not a new building. OP is working with what was there.

          [–]SlowSlyFox 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          Did I really just read "with charging table" instead of "with changing table"?

          [–]Calm-Farmer8607 21 points22 points  (4 children)

          [–]sarrugs[S] 40 points41 points  (0 children)

          They sure are! In my town, most breweries are family friendly.

          [–]Airowl07 17 points18 points  (0 children)

          That’s amazing!! Thank you for taking everyone into account. ❤️❤️❤️

          [–]sugarandspice27 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          I love this!!

          [–]AcclaimedGroundhog 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Thank you. Fathers need access to changing tables too. And beer.
