A disposable absorbent article such as a diaper. The diaper has a topsheet, backsheet, and an intermediate core. Affixed to the outwardly oriented surface of the topsheet is an expulsive spacer. The spacer receives and collects fecal material from the wearer. The spacer may be removable from the diaper, or may be articulable relative to the diaper. By expelling the spacer from the diaper, fecal material can be easily flushed into the toilet, rather than discarded into a waste receptacle where it presents a sanitation hazard.
