I did not even know "manspreading" was a thing. Neither did I know there could be a 4 page forum topic discussing it. I've learned a lot.

People these days have life so good they need to complain about small things like the position of some guy's legs

What sort of pathetic weakling complains about not being able to sit down, anyway?

Here's how my conversations go:

Manspreader: Oh, you can sit down, let me make space.
Purse Owner: Oh, I'm terribly sorry, you don't have to make space. I'll just keep my purse in my lap.
Me: No, sir, ma'am, I prefer to stand. Please remain as you are.

The end.

the irony of people coming in here calling this thread pointless...

but reading through all the pages and then contribute nothing to the discussion except leaving a hit-n-run comment is somehow more meaningful than those of us who contributed something?

Why the fuck do you need all that shit? You're just going to work or school. You don't have to pack your entire worldly belongings where ever you travel. You're not the Bedouins or some other nomadic tribe living in the desert.... Unless you are. And then how the hell do you get internet connection out there!?!?!?!?!

On topic:

Yeah, as a male, I have had men with their legs spread all to fuck. the worst was on a bus and the guy was purposefully trying to take up as much room as possible and being rude as hell.. But, I've also been bitched out for taking a seat near a woman's bags till I was forced to stand... despite her bags taking up three seats.

People are just rude and there's better issues to fight.


Let's be fair, some girls have legitimate things in their big purses. I have a large purse, although it's more in the style of a tote bag (long, tall and thing, not all that wide). It's about the size of a 17" laptop and I take it on transit everyday. Do you know what's in there besides my wallet and phone? My work laptop. I certainly don't try to hit anyone with it and I always put it on my lap when the bus is busy. I really don't see the difference between this and a laptop bag or backpack. People with backpacks hit me with their bags on transit more than females with large purses. At least you can see where your purse is, you can't see your backpack.

I've never heard of this man spreading thing, but I also don't think I've seen much of it on transit here. At least not when its crowded. I don't really care how you want to sit, as long as you aren't being rude and refuse to adjust to let others sit beside you and allow them a proper amount of space.

Especially during morning rush hour, everyone is cramped up and that one person insist on taking up two seats worth of space like a fucking tool bag. I don't mind if the train has empty seats. Spread your legs as far as you can, you can even lie down and take a nice nap, no one would care. BUT if the train is fucking crowded, close your fucking legs (hehehe)

exactly.
if there are empty seats, feel free to sit upside down, and I wouldn't care.

Feminists just need to learn some empathy and realize how awesome it feels to not have your testicles stick to your thighs. Seriously.

Usually if someone is sitting like that in a crowded area I've noticed that they will make more space when someone sits next to them (likely either out of politeness or avoidance of physical contact). There may be a stubborn person who refuses to move, or someone who's clueless to what's going on around them and doesn't think to. But I would bet that it's a minority who do that.

So if it's a minority of people contributing to a extremely minor problem...I think people just need to stop whining about every little god damn thing in the world and get over themselves. THIS shouldn't be the result of living in the information age. It just makes me sad. Freaking social media...

In the few times I've encountered egregious cases of "manspreading" during my travels, I just manspread them right back to assert dominance over my space. Straight men don't like to touch other men, so they will retreat their knees back to a reasonable area. For women, just put your purse between the two of you or something. *shrug*

If they have a beard you can sit on their lap and tell them what you want for Christmas.

Radfems need to stop. As a female, I think they need to stop.

You made my day.

EXACTLY!
