IKEA Australia is inclusive: In addition to purely female and purely male bathrooms, there will now also be gender-neutral ones.

In addition, parking lot signs should become more family-friendly.

IKEA Australia would like to show a variety of different families on its parking lot signs in the future.

Instead of just women and men with strollers, two men with strollers or two women with strollers will soon be seen on the signs, extratipp.com * reports.

“The new family icons are simply a more inclusive and diverse representation of what a 'family' looks like in Australia,” said Alice Young, Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at IKEA Australia. The signs do not have a new function. Regardless of their constellation, families can park wherever they want.

Last year IKEA Australia introduced gender-neutral toilets for employees and customers who do not want to use a male or female toilet.

“We want people at IKEA to feel safe, comfortable and accepted,” says Alice Young.

In addition to the toilet for women and the one for men, there is now also a gender-neutral one.

“Not having a bathroom can be challenging for LGBT + community members who are non-binary or trans,” says Young, according to News Corp Australia.

Gender equitable language completely exaggerated?

That's what scooter frontman HP Baxxter thinks: "I think gender sucks!"
