A few weeks ago, I was at the authentic Chinese gourmet emporium P.F. Chang’s and a dad was complaining to the server about how there’s nowhere in the men’s bathroom for him to change his baby. Dude was ranting about how he had to change his kid’s diaper on the dirty floor and if he did it on a table out in the open, he’d probably be arrested. So dramatic! Nobody would’ve called the cops. They wouldn’t have had time to call the cops, because the entire restaurant would have had to be evacuated after all of us puked up our insides from watching him change his baby’s dirty diaper while trying to enjoy some Beef á la Sichuan.
Well, new dad Ashton Kutcher feels that dude’s plight and is using his celebrity to bring on change and demand that every men’s bathroom have a place to clean up his kid’s piss and shit.
Ashton is sick of strolling into a bathroom with his baby daughter Wyatt and saying, “Dude, where’s the changing station?” Ashton doesn’t understand why women’s and family bathrooms have places to change diapers, but men’s bathrooms don’t. (Side note: I once went into a men’s bathroom and the diaper changing station was being used as a place for dudes to keep their drinks as they pissed. A changing station and a bar!) Ashton went on Facebook to announce his new mission and said that he will fart up a shout to the first men’s restroom he goes into that has a place to change diapers. The challenge has been thrown down!
I’m not sure how one Facebook shout out from Ashton will lead to worldwide change, but whatever, he’s fighting the good fight. I’m sure Justin Bieber will soon join the fight with Ashton, because it’s always a drag when he’s out partying with his bros and there’s no place for them to change his diaper after he gets the coke shits.
And here’s Ashton taking his kid for a hike in L.A. yesterday.
