Nothing changes


I write regarding Neil Arthur’s letter in last week’s edition of the Banner where he cites one reason for the Lochranza toilets shutdown is due to non-suitability for being made disabled friendly. This is a wrong attitude and singles out disabled persons for inconveniencing of the rest of the general public and sets them as demons helping to close the toilets.

My wife, who is severely mobility impaired, and I, as her sole carer, feel insulted by this statement. Our attitude is to accept what is available. Of course it is nice to have the privacy and ease of access of dedicated disabled toilets but we get by if none is available. As a man going into ladies toilets, I find it difficult but we have never met dissent from ladies and on my part I ensure I keep talking to alert any lady users that a man is present, so preventing any embarrassment on both sides.
