Mother outraged after her husband was kicked out of the parents’ room by a mum while trying to change his daughter’s nappy

It is interesting that the headline and the one kicking upa skink is the “outraged mother”.

A mother has been left ‘fuming’ after her husband was denied entry to a parents’ room because there were ‘other mothers in there’.

Sarah Fa’avale, who is based in New Zealand, shared a rant on Facebook calling out women who discriminate against fathers in changing rooms.

Her partner Tua had only been trying to help by taking their daughter Tahani to the bathroom – but he was asked to leave.

‘When he went to enter however a lady started yelling at him saying: “Um excuse me!!! You can’t go in there, there are mums in there!”.

‘Tua then had to leave to come and find me to change Hani’s nappy as all this time she was sitting in her poos!


  1. Unfortunately this man was still gullible enough to respect a woman telling him what to do. We would encourage men to ignore a woman like this and just go ahead into the room. If she tries physically to stop you, take care not to push or do anything police could find an excuse to charge you about but still make sure you go into the room, then later make an assault complaint against her.

  2. I blame shopping malls.

    I’ve changed my share of nappies in my time and this problem didn’t exist when I had young children.

  3. To be honest, I think the father did the right thing. Not out of respect but out of self preservation. The woman was volatile and there might not be CCTV inside the parents room. So one false allegation from the woman and this guy’s life would be misery.

  4. #2,,, yes,, I say leave it at home,,, the trouble these days is that people absolutely expect public convenience.. to a sick degree,,, what they need is common sense ,planning,.. like the stuff they actually used to teach in school and at home and it was done inherently.
