Husband comes under fire for taking four-year-old daughter to ladies' toilets rather than the men's

When you've got to go, you've got to go - and when you're a small child this normally means two things.
Number one; said child will most likely need to relieve themselves imminently, and, number two; they probably need to be accompanied by an adult if out in public.
One dad, however, has raised some eyebrows with his stance on taking his four-year-old daughter to the toilet.
Following a disagreement with him about his point of view, one mum sought advice from Mumsnet .
"When my four-year-old needs the loo in a public place, he takes her to the ladies' loos ," she wrote.
"I told him that women don't like that and he should take her to the men's loo. Am I being unreasonable or is he?"

Two valid points got raised in the ensuing debate.

On the one hand, many mums felt a other women wouldn't appreciate a man entering the ladies' toilets.
One wrote: "Your darling husband is bang out of order. Adult men should never be in the women’s toilets.
"If I saw him I’d report him to whichever establishment I was in."
Another agreed adding: "My husband would never to do this and I have not once seen any man do it.
"I personally think it is bizarre that he thinks he has any right to enter women’s toilets."
Then again, men's public toilets aren't exactly renowned for being fragrant oases of cleanliness - and many other mums were quick to point this out.
"I would prefer to see a man take his daughter into ladies if no family/disabled toilet available...don’t think any young child needs urinal or stinky cubicle exposure," one mum commented.
Another put it more bluntly, writing: "I really wouldn't want my daughter at the age of 4 heading into the mens loos. They stink and blokes have their k***s out!!"
Hopefully with unisex toilets becoming more common, this issue will become a lot easier for parents.
