While Australian councils are busy installing female only pedestrian symbols, a supermarket in Bedfordshire, England decided to paint over the dresses on their parent-and-child parking signs.

The signs, situated in an Aldi car park, were used to reserve parking spots for parents with young children. The symbol used depicted a woman in a dress holding hands with a child.

However, the store reportedly felt the image was not inclusive of male and non-gender-conforming parents.

A spokesperson for Aldi told The Telegraph: “All parents and child car parking spaces at Aldi stores are gender-neutral. The sign was painted incorrectly and will be changed.”

Wouldn’t you love to be operating the complaints department when an offended male or “non-gender-conforming parent” walks in. You could hand him an outlawed Kleenex “Mansize” tissue to wipe away the tears.
