    They do. You're completely missing the point. It's just about courtesy. Seriously I think this is being overthought. It's just common sense at the time. Sometimes it will be a ladies toilet, sometimes a men's, sometimes a tree but usually the disabled.

    I'm not missing the point. I just don't like pandering to precious old ducks who have no real reason to protest other than 'I don't like it'

    Given you don't have a girl you won't ever have to worry.

    I have no problem with a man taking his daughter to the girls toilet, I alway say it. Girls pee behind closed doors, I would much rather that then have her see strange men peeing in the open. weird enough when my dp take my boys in the mens toilets. Nothing wrong with kids seeing mens parts but I just prefer if its kept at home especially for a little girl.

    This is so rarely a problem in today's society....every single shopping centre now has a parent room or disabled toilet!

    Even most of the parks we go to now have disabled toilets or a row of single toilets.

    It might be a case of a bit of planning...if at a shopping centre, aim for parents room and not just for the closest toilet.

    This cracked my DH!! He has read everyone's posts and is really surprised, wants to know what everyone thinks men do in the toilets! He says his experience is that men face the wall, do their business, zip up their pants and leave. In all his years using a public toilet he can't ever remember willys being on display! He says you can't see anything except a row of backs.

    Sprinkler systems?? In all honesty, all the plumbers I know say the womens toilets are far more horrendous than the mens ones, so not sure. Lol.

    I don't see why a man couldn't yell into the males toilets that he's bringing his daughter in to take a wizz and to practice discretian with their obvious debauchery for 5 minutes.

    W have 4 daughters, no sons and anyone who has daughters knows how often you are visiting toilets!

    My DH will always seek out a parents room toilet for the girls and failing that he will take them to unisex wheelchair access one. When those two options aren't available, he takes them into a cubicle in the men's toilets, but that is very rare.

    At the end of the day, a toilet is a toilet, I'm sure ladies would rather a father with his daughter enter the female toilets than watch her wet her pants in the hallway.

    But turn the tables - why is it only fathers with daughters, what about mother's with sons? No one bats an eyelid when a mother takes her son to the female toilet, and men wouldn't give two hoots if she entered the blokes toilet with her son.

    Like I said, a toilet is a toilet.

    I'd be happy with dh taking her to the mens - granted there are no other options. And I personally don't see the big deal, think she would have less psychological damage from going into a toilet (any) than peeing herself because of all the farting around to get into a women's loo.
