I do disagree that his gender matters here- he didn't do anything to you, he didn't yank the curtain aside to ogle you, he went into the toilet for a few minutes, then left. Men are just as entitled to enter this room- it's a 'parents' room, after all, and although we don't know his reason for being in there, we can most likely assume it was to do with his job. If he'd come in and stared at you while bf, fair enough, but he didn't approach you.
Just as an aside, many women feel breasts are sexual as opposed to nourishing too. I was kind of horrified to realise this. But it's true. If you go through the comments on news articles to do with bf in public, there is a disturbingly large number of women banging on about being covered up for that very reason.
Funnily enough, the last time I used a parents room, I was alone in there with a man. I didn't even think of it until now. He was in the bf "booth" next to mine, fixing something on the light. I was more concerned with the giant chair in the tiny booth that meant my knees were sticking out and that I had to sit in the booth directly opposite the toilet as the electrician was in the other. Stiiinky! I only went in because I wanted a more comfy chair for my bad back.

DH won't take his kid into parents rooms. The very first time he went in with both me and DS and I'd finished feeding him an DH went to the toilet as i was finishing up but DS was getting cranky so I left the toilet and begun walk up the corridor DH come walking out with his head hung low and just coming out the corridor we were met by security the lady who hadnt seen DH with me ad DS and only seen him come ou of the toilet ripped through him for being a pervert and rang the security button. Every other time our kids needed a feed or a change and DH was with me he waited outside the room or we went to the car. He feels so uncomfortable bing in a parents room now.

MonsterMoosMum, that is awful. I feel sorry for your DH that he doesn't feel comfortable to go in there with you anymore.

This is why I'm so iffy on the subject of course the op is not the exact situation but what about a man go was in Dh situation would you react or think the same. I honestly feel its more uncomfortable to be a man in a patent room to a woman. But I guess in saying that its people who don't have kids and use those rooms make it harder for people like DH. Catch 22 huh

When DS was a newbie I was feeding him in the parents room, a teenage boy came in and took a big, huge, stinky **** and then left. Omfg. I knew it was a teenage boy by himself, because we both had the awkward moment of quickly trying to get out the door at the same time :/
