Ashton Kutcher Wants Baby Changing Tables in Men's Restrooms

When out and about with Baby, it's sometimes difficult to find a changing table in a public restroom.

That goes double for dads, and Ashton Kutcher feels your pain.

The "Two and a Half Men" actor took to Facebook on Sunday to express just how disappointed he is when it comes to the lack of changing tables in men's restrooms across the country.

"There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens [sic] public restrooms," he wrote. "The first public men's room that I got into that has one gets a free shout-out on my FB page! #BeTheChange"

And Kutcher, who's a parent to 5-month-old Wyatt alongside partner Mila Kunis, isn't the only one who's, well, pissed.

Dads across California made their grievances known, supporting two bills that required baby-changing stations to be available to parents of both genders.

“As the demographics of the modern American family evolve, traditional gender roles with women as the primary caregiver for the children are changing, and men are becoming more and more involved in the care of their young children,” California State Sen. Ricardo Lara (Dem.) explained in a statement.

However, while both bills passed in the California State Senate, Gov. Jerry Brown refused to sign them into law, writing:

"At a time when so many have raised concerns about the number of regulations in California, I believe it would be more prudent to leave the matter of diaper changing stations to the private sector. Already, many businesses have taken steps to accommodate their customers in this regard."

"This may be a good business practice," he continued, "but not one that I am inclined to legislate."

We're hoping Kutcher can make more of a difference.
