Ashton Kutcher wants the world to know that, in his opinion, there need to be more changing stations in men’s bathrooms than currently exist. The 37-year-old dished on Facebook that “There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens public restrooms.” Kutcher recently became a father when his fiancée and fellow actress Mila Kunis gave birth to their baby daughter last fall. His post went on to say, “The first public men’s room that I go into that has one gets a free shout out on my FB page!” with the hashtag #BeTheChange ending his Facebook post.
He went on to point out how he is enjoying fatherhood and has really embraced everything that has come with it over the course of the last several months as their daughter Wyatt Isabelle is growing through her first year of life. The post though, and the situation, it would seem – suggest and reveal a growing problem here in the United States. While changing stations are regularly seen in women’s restrooms, they are less-frequently seen in men’s rooms.
A few restaurants and places of business have notably included them in men’s rooms as well, but overall, is something that might have just gotten some extra attention thanks to Ashton’s Facebook post. While we doubt we’ll be seeing anyone adding changing tables right away – perhaps this is something now that will have a little more weight carried with it. Interestingly, the post received a good, positive feedback from his followers, and it would appear as though could spur some positive change on this front.
