    I'm not sure people are asking you to justify yourself but in any case this is a discussion and providing a rationale for one's opinions is what usually happens here. But also, it's not your opinion which offends people, I imagine, it's probably the level of aggression/anger in your response.

    Sorry but that reason is horse$hit. Unless someone else is disadvantaged then you're being precious.

    I still don't get the logistics of how you take your non disabled child to the regular toilets when you are out alone with all three of your kids? Do you leave them outside?

    When my kids were 6 months and 18 months I could never use a regular toilet when I was out alone with them and a parents room was unavaliable. I wouldn't dream of leaving them outside the door so I'm not sure why you can't respect my right to be able to use a toilet with dignity (closed door for my privacy) while keeping my children safe. It feels like your acting like the entitled one to me. Why is your families dignity and safety more important than mine?

    That would be perceived anger. I wouldn't consider myself angry, more appalled. Again, couldn't care less if people are offended by my viewpoint.

    Well we will have to agree to disagree. Just so we are clear I find your reasoning also to be horse$hit.

    I honestly don't get it. You are appalled people are using VACANT disabled toilets bc they don't want to take their daughters into the men's toilet or they can't fit a pram into the women's? Why? It's like a circular argument. You keep giving all these insults - selfish, entitled, disrespectful, but you don't say *why* exactly that is when the toilet is empty.

    Gah my head hurts.

    I would consider a parent with several small children to be just as deserving of an accessible-toilet as a traditionally disabled person. No disrespect to people with disabilities but it's pretty hard managing a couple of babies and a toddler in a shopping centre toilet all on your own. I'm very anti people using disabled parking spaces but the accessible loos are there for people with special needs and I think wrangling several children fits in that category.

    Luckily it's rare we parents need to use a disable loo thanks to parent rooms being available at most large public places.

    I've peed with many a door open when an accessible toilet was not available. This pelvic floor ain't waiting for no one. Pram outside, door open and me peeing.

    Wow do you want me to detail all my toileting habits while I am out and about?? I survive quite fine, I have a City Select double pram and have never let my kids out of my sight when using a toilet. I have also bolted to the loo when I have got back home, busting to go because I have held on while shopping.

    Anyone think we are the only one's with small children who need to use a toilet when out if the house? Lol my mother had 4 kids and my grandmother 8 not sure what they did when they needed to duck up to the shops with the kids in tow & needed to go to the loo???

    Bahaha! I actually laughed out loud at this! Maybe it's just way too late for this type of conversation, but seriously I think most who have gone through childbirth can relate to the need for a toilet on every corner.
