Men's Rights I Can Get Behind

I hope MRA's are ready to support this guy. Or they could further reveal themselves as total hypocrites. Either will make me happy.

Local dad pushes for changing tables in men's rooms.

Why aren't there diaper changing tables in men's restrooms? (Hint: It's misogyny).

Women are expected to be the ones taking care of the kids all the time, so why put changing tables in men's bathrooms? But now that stay-at-home dads are becoming more common (yay), men are finally starting to pay attention to this unfair lack of access to diaper stations.

Stay-at-home dad Scotty Schrier is helping raise two sons. It was a night out at a local Ruby Tuesday where he noticed a shortcoming in the restroom. 
"Being the involved dad, I’m like yeah honey, I got this you know so I grabbed the diaper bag, I grabbed the kid and it never dawned on me that I might walk into the bathroom and there wouldn’t be a changing station," he said. 
"You can carry a pad all you want but it’s still on the floor." 
Ashton Kutcher put the issue in the national spotlight when posted a message on Facebook about it last year. And, Macy’s added one in a Maryland store after a father complained. 
Now, Schrier has started the Dads Who Change Diapers blog and lists businesses with men’s room changing tables. 
"It's almost like this idea that it’s the woman’s job and it’s like no it’s everybody’s job, we're parents," Schrier said.

Almost like, Scotty. Almost like.
