This is very off topic but what about transgenders? That's still a male/female entering the opposite sexes toilets. That's more accepted because that person is usually recognized as being the correct sex for the toilets they are entering. So a male could still be entering the toilets that you're using but you are none the wiser. I don't really see then why it should be unacceptable for a dad to bring his daughter into the female toilets. I don't think he would be pacing up and down the cubicles looking like a pedo scaring everyone who's walking in afterwards. I think most would wait at the cubicle door or at the entrance. If questioned it wouldn't be hard for him to explain he was waiting for his daughter. I think *most* women would be ok with that.
In saying that though I would just want my dh and dd to be comfortable. They would have to make the decision between themselves if/when that situation occurs.

We must live on different planets as every time I walk past a disabled toilet, be it in a shopping centre, hospital, park it's always empty. So clearly "people with the same view as me" aren't taking the toilets lol Truth be told, I think I've used these toilets twice in my life so hardly taking away the toilets of disabled people. People aren't talking about routinely using disabled toilets bc of sheer laziness while poor disabled people wait. We are talking about the odd occasion when a father has a daughter who is too young to go to the loo on her own so may use a vacant disabled toilet.
This thread is funny. So many people getting angry over toilets

In all my years with kids I've never come across a man in a ladies toilet.

Zombie_eyes, I ask this in a very genuinely interested way, not in a nasty or confrontational way, but have you told your DH/discussed with your DH that he will be taking your DD into the women's toilet? If I told my DH he had to take our DD's into a women's toilet he would totally refuse. No way would he be comfortable going into a women's toilet.
I don't recall that we've ever had a discussion about what happens when he takes our DDs out on his own. I must ask him tonight when he gets home.

If there's no one waiting to use the disabled toilet what's the big deal? What harm is done? Is it a principals thing? (.. Bit precious..) Or are you genuinely concerned that a disabled person might have to wait a couple of minutes on the off chance they need to go when someone else is using the toilet? (Also a bit precious?) In the event of that happening, is it really the end of the world of the disabled person has to wait a couple of minutes? (like the rest of us do quite often).
Sorry I am struggling to see what the actual problem is here.

I agree about the use of the disabled toilet. Often they even have a change table in them.
I also don't see the problem if no one is waiting. I also don't think it's a huge deal of someone had to wait a minute or two to use it.
I have used a disabled toilet with my dd in the pram when there aren't other options.
