Wear a Skirt When You Change that Diaper!

I knew I couldn't be the only one who noticed the iconography of diaper-changing tables. Nation writer Jessica Valenti recently posted this to her Tumblr:

Three human icon signs, one for diaper changing with a skirted figure, two with no skirt for sit in chair and throw away trash
With the comment: "Dudes are the default…until there’s a diaper to change."

She saw these on a Jet Blue flight. Although to be fair, how many women need to be told to put their trash in the container? And I still can't figure out why anyone needs to be urged to sit in the seat.
