I did that. I had to wait for all the guys to leave before running out of the bathroom. Didn't even see the urinals on the way in. Just thought it was a particularly dirty bathroom. 😳

How did you realize

This seems like a larger problem of being so engrossed in your phone that you do something like this. I am not claiming innocence here and will now consciously make a better effort to interact with my surroundings

I know, D3 :( Lesson learnt.

I did this once. Walked into the ladies room lost in thought, went straight to the stall, didn't close the door and whipped it out (like men typically do). It's when I noticed the shoes from the next stall and her feet slowly moving away from the stall edge did it hit me. I got out of there as quick as I could. I didn't even try to think of an escape, just ran out.

M here. I’ve done a lot therapy and reflection and realized I grew up believing in traditional gender roles.

I’m ashamed of it, especially since my SO is a strong, intelligent, highly independent woman who likes to work, and I wouldn’t want to change anything about her.

Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
