    Actually seriously? Are you people actually serious?!
    I didn't feel comfortable going to use the disabled toilet, Hence suffering in line.

    Disabled toilets are not just for disabled, they are just accessible for disabled people. Anyone can use them. And i meant if the parents room was full.

    I dont understand why people would get upset about little boys going into ladies toilets. Its not like we walk around naked in there and there are doors on the stalls

    that is different to just disabled though if they are also labelled as childrens Having read what some people who have relatives with profound disabilities have had to say about their need for disabled toilets, ones that are specifically labelled as disabled I don't use

    I totally get taking both kids to the parent room when you have a younger one. None of them appeared to be under 5 though.

    I said using the disabled toilets AHEAD of the parent's room. If you had both options. Like the number one priority should be not inconveniencing parents rather than people with disabilities. So there's no need to jump on the defense because I'm not talking about your situation.

    But even if they weren't disabled toilets aren't only for the use by disabled people. It means they are accessible by disabled people.

    I get it it sucks but it's not illegal or even immoral. It's just that if you are mobility impaired you can use this toilet because it's lower / larger etc.

    If there is a toilet vacant and I know my kids need to go, disabled toilets or not, I will take them as long as no one is waiting to go into it. I'd rather use the disabled toilets and spare my kids dignity and they not p!ss their pants. I would only use the disabled room if I knew I couldn't hold it, or my kid's not hold. Other than that, it is always the ladies room.

    But even if we did anyone can use the disabled toilets. It's about accessibility.

    And my use of capitals was only in response.

    Poor kid. Why would a women get upset about that? women's toilets are cubicles anyway not open like the men's urinal. Some people need to chill.

    If that's the case, then why is there a toilet in there?
