    This thread made me think of this blog post I read a while ago.

    Not OTT at all - just today I read this, a man at my local mall took pics of an 8 year old boy going to the toilet...

    Sounds like a bit of a stretch to think a perve would use a baby to get into the women's loos to take photos under the stalls (good luck with a wriggling baby under one arm, never mind being able to run off if caught). Just give the guy the benefit of the doubt and let him change his kid in peace.

    My XH took our DS1 to Sydney and on the way back, stopped at a rest stop for a nappy change. The only change table was in the women's toilets and XH wasn't going to change DS on the floor of the men's toilets, so in he went.

    A lady came in while he was changing DS and ranted and raved about what a pervert he was for being in the women's toilets - when he was clearly there to tend to the needs of his son.

    This woman even complained to the staff members - who laughed at her.

    If I walked into the female toilets and saw a guy changing a young ones nappy I would give a 'good on you' smile and tell him to take his time and probably comment on how stupid it is there aren't any other change tables available for men to use without going in to the ladies.

    seriousy ... this is crap. I heard of a woman breasfeeding while driving her car. Should I live in fear that evey woman is going to breastfeed while driving if she happens to be lactating and have a hungry child on board.

    Yeah, 'cause he's going to stand there, holding a baby, perving on women walking through to a cubicle to pee. I'd be more concerned about the supervising staff member looking at my child's bits.

    And this was found to be not true. And if he was innocent which we should presume he was given the lack of charges, poor guy.
