I disagree ... It's part of male privilege and it takes up so much fucking space that it's unfair to other passengers. If you want your danglers to flow free then just fucking stand up, don't inconvenience other people by taking up all the space.
Its male privilege to sit comfortably? See this is why a lot of people complain about feminism, they complain about men sitting with open legs on buses more than they do about how women are treated in third world countries
i dont claim to be oppressed when i see women sitting with their bags next to them on trains and buses. Isnt it hypocritical that men get criticised for covering a bit of another seat with their leg but women can get away with taking a whole seat up with bags
besides, why can't women just ask us to move our legs a bit if its a problem, if you dont ask us to move our legs we'll assume there is no problem, if the guy refuses then he's a prick but shouldn't be arrested
It's not an issue if you're on public transport and there's loads of space - in that case, sit however you want. Just as if there are spare seats then I might put my bag on the seat next to me. However, if there are people who are standing up on the bus / tube / train because all the seats are taken, then I would move my bag. Women who don't are arseholes. Just as men who continue to sit with their legs open wide when their are people sitting either side of them / standing up, are arseholes. It's just about common courtesy. The reason I suppose it is made into a feminist issue is because (some) men go, well, I have a dick so I need to sit like this - everyone else can deal with it or ask me to move. You should just be moving anyway. Just because you have a penis does not give you the right to take up twice as much space on a packed tube.
if I'm on an empty train or bus I will put my bag next to me because there are plenty of seats. However, if it's packed then I will move it. Women who don't are arseholes. The same goes for manspreading
it's just common courtesy. If you're on a packed tube and you have people sitting either side of you, you're being a dick if you take up twice the space of a normal person just because you have a penis
You shouldn't have to wait for someone to ask you to move your legs (which, FYI, telling someone to move parts of their body is much more awkward than making it obvious that someone has their bag on a chair and you need to sit down)
but say im sat down, i dont realise my leg is covering a part of her chair, i've just sat like i normally would, and she doesnt tell me, im assuming nothing is wrong so why would i move if i dont think there is a problem
I'd just say if you're taking up more than one seat on any form of packed public transport and you're not 20 stone, then you're probably inconveniencing other passengers. The fact that that needs to be explained to some people is astounding
Men are logical beings, so if you just simply asked them to move their legs, they would probably just move them, equvalent to how @makeupformermaids was explaining that she'll move her back if there's many people. But always, there are inconsiderate people.
And besides, there are better problems to focus on than room on transportation.
As usual, feminists overkill with making stuff illegal.
Yea the hate on the way guys sit is ridiculous.if they're actually taking up 2 whole seats when people are standing, okay, that's a bit ridiculous. But otherwise, who gives a shit? Like they can damn well sit however they want
ahaha I'm sorry, man! The only way I can be on here is by using my shitty iPad 1 and I just really got sick of it. And then I got addicted to tumblr and Netflix and then shit hit the fan with personal issues and then I had like all my electronics taken away for like a month.... So I have reasonable excuses! Lol
Any new people or drama I should know about, good or bad?
