This entitled bitch thinks men take up too much room on the subway and has decided to shame them on her blog.
Some of the men in these pics do, certainly. But mostly it's just men sitting naturally, with their legs slightly apart. The most natural and comfortable way for a man to sit.
Sure, when the train gets crowded we can scrunch our legs together to make room for other people. But it's unnatural, uncomfortable, and in some cases painful. Why don't women understand this?
Also, if a train isn't crowded I don't really care how people sit or how much room they take up. If you can get a seat, why does it matter?
Furthermore, there's no mention of how much room women take up with their shopping bags, strollers, toddlers, etc.

You don't know what you're talking about, OP.
I'm a guy, and I've been on the subway when it's crowded and guys sit like that to dare you to ask them for room to sit down. They sit in the middle of a bench, and if you ask them to move over so you can sit, often just glare at you and frequently don't move.
Usually it's guys of all races trying to claim their territory and prove their street cred. It's obnoxious.
There's nothing "natural" about sitting on a subway, period, much less sitting with your legs spread wide open. The subway isn't "nature".

Some of the men shown on that blog taking up too much space are doing so with the luggage that they've put on the seat next to them, or by flopping their arms over adjacent seats; these things have nothing to do with accommodating their enormous testicles. More likely, they are compensating for just the opposite.

This anti-Frau shit as the answer to everything really brings out the estrogen-overloaded inner bitch in gay men like the OP.
I too have been on the subway with DADS with strollers and their bratty kids. I've seen mothers more likely to control their kids than dads.
It's rude for anyone to hog a seat on a crowded subway, and the blogger is right that it's guys who do this particular form of shit.

You do realize that men were involved in making all of those toddlers and babies in strollers, right? And that the toddlers and the strollers take up just as much room when daddy drags them onto the subway, right? Not that it matters--the person who created that Tumblr is, in fact, entitled to make a Tumblr about whatever the hell pet peeve she pleases, with no obligation to address YOUR pet peeves to?

My father always taught me a gentleman always offers his seat to someone who may need it more (elderly person, disabled person, pregnant woman, parent with small children, etc). I commute over an hour each way by subway from my apartment in Manhattan to my office in Brooklyn and, when the train fills up, there is always someone who could use a seat more than I can. Sometimes they decline, but I still offer. Amazing to me how many guys in sports clothes plop into a seat and won't get up for someone with two kids, or a person with a cane. (I live in fear when some young thing offers ME a seat, but judging from what I've seen, that isn't very likely).

I've ridden the NYC subway for decades and the way some men sit has peeved me for just as long. As a professor of mine said in the '80's, she always wants to ask them if they've paid double fare, one for themselves and another for their dicks.
In contrast, there are plenty of men who manage to sit with their legs at shoulder-width, which allows subway benches to accommodate the number of passengers intended in their design, and in the MTA's planning. It ain't rocket science. Just behave like a normally considerate human being.

What makes you boys think that it's not just as comfortable for WOMEN to sit with THEIR legs slightly apart?
It's only society that teaches women to cross their legs at the knee, ankle, etc. And there's not even a reason to do it if a woman is wearing slacks.
I learned many years ago that women are taught to make themselves as physically small in public as they possibly can -- you rarely see a woman with her arm draped over the chair next to her, or with her arms resting on the armrests in an airplane when there's a man next to her.
I have never been comfortable folding myself up that way -- plus, I also learned early on that physical posture is all about claiming territory. So I have always done exactly what men do. I use the arm rests on the plane, even when there are men sitting next to me. I sit with my legs open. I put my arm over the chair next to mine, and I slouch down in my seat with my legs straightened and crossed at the ankle -- just like men do. I claim my space.
You boys, always whining, whining, whining about women, when you have no idea how many privileges you enjoy simply because you're male. And yes -- even when you're gay.
By the way, I never wanted to be a man OR have a penis. I just want to have the same power that you guys take for granted.
|by Anonymous||reply 87||09/25/2013|
Sitting with our legs open is a man’s subconscious need to assert his masculinity. Men release the most pheromones from the two places on their bodies where they sweat the most, which is the armpits and crotch. This is the reason we will sit with their hands behind their head, too. This is a man’s way of marking his territory.
Also, it can depend on the underwear. Most comments here about large junk aren't so off the mark, even if jokes are being made about it. Some underwear cups and lifts (supports). And closing the legs will crush the balls.
Also consider leg muscles, mens are thicker than women's and it's harder to "pull" them together and still be in a relaxed state.

I'm kind of prim kind of guy but I often sit next to guys who INSIST on spreading their legs as wide as possible and being in full contact with me for the duration of our trip together. It's like a weird outer thigh constant contact type thing that I used to be totally offended by and would move my thighs inward but then they'd push theirs out so they'd be touching. Now I find it comforting in a weird way. Like we're a brotherhood of men and we have to constantly be touching eachother? Something like that? Maybe they think I'm attractive enough that touching me isn't a bad thing?

I don't know any women who think men need to give up seats for anybody other than hugely pregnant women and the elderly or disabled (women and men). And in those cases, all the non-elderly, non-preggo, able-bodied women I know, myself included, are happy to give up our own seats.
I suspect it is the same among the women you know, but keep on making up imaginary enemies.

Or the entitled cunts who block the seat next to them until you absolutely make them let you sit there. They move their bags with an eye roll. They go out of their way to not make eye contact, sometimes because they think any man that sits next to them is, of course, trying to seduce them. Sometimes I want to go 'Bitch, I'm gay' as soon as I sit down.

Part of the reason for the open legs is because men have relatively narrow pelvis compared to their height. It creates stability.
Having said that, I am in no way condoning the wide stance taken by many of these men and a senator from Michigan (or is it Minnesota).
|by Anonymous||reply 129||09/25/2013|
hmm. As a female living in NY, Queens. I have never noticed men with legs wide open. Maybe because I've never looked out for it. I don't know what other women think, but for me, I think men do it because their area gets too tight, you know, with the pants.
And r119 I don't need any man to stand up for me and give me their seat. I usually prefer standing up. I like looking out the windows with my music high when the train is moving. I have heavily noticed men and women getting up and giving their seats for old, injured, pregnant people. I've also seen elders giving up their seats for school kids.
I think this is a personal issue with both sides. These sexist answers wont help, and the woman posting pictures of men on trains is disgusting.

The pics of guys with their legs spread wide is one thing, but there are pics on that blog of men with their feet on the seats or lying down, which women do too.
I was travelling home by train last year, and two guys lied about saving seats for fictional friends just to keep a four-person table seat for themselves. They let me sit down when I pointed out I had a broken spine, and looked mortified. One of them actually said, "Please don't hate me" which was weird.

[quote] Those of us built like real MEN have serious issue with the tiny little indentations that are called "seats"! :)
Then stand up, precious, and leave the seats for those who can fit their asses into one seat. You are welcome to explain to everyone who gets on the train that you're standing because your balls are too big to allow you to sit comfortably in one seat. Wear a kilt while doing this.
OP needs psychological help, or to spend all eternity stuck in a middle seat on a packed 737 between two guys "built like real MEN" (i.e. like an orca in pleated dockers) who "need" to air out the boys. Either would do nicely.

The posters who say men need to have their legs spread on the bus and subway to sit comfortable are idiotic.
Plenty of men sit in all places - at home, away from home, on public transit - with one leg crossed over the other which does not squeeze their genitals uncomfortably. Men sitting with legs crossed is very common.
Men who sit with legs spread wide on buses and subways are anti-social bores, idiots, self-centered, tend toward sociopathic behavior, bad mannered, and narcissistic.

Just so you know, some disabilities which make standing up very painful are not apparent to onlookers.
Severe arthritis, for example, can make it difficult to stand for more than 60 seconds for some people.
I despise men who sit in the seats for the elderly and disabled at the front of the bus and refuse to move.
These men often hog the elderly and disabled seats at the front of the bus even when there are empty seats all over the bus.
Even if there are only a few empty seats all over the bus, these able bodied men should sit in the seats thruout the bus, and not automatically take the elderly and disable seats.
And it is 99 to 100 percent black men who always take the elderly and disabled seats at the front of the bus. I despise them for doing this.

I find this extremely hard to believe. I will admit, I never ride the bus, but I have noticed for years on the subway that young black men are MORE likely than any other demographic to give up their seat for an elderly or disabled person.
But, hey, if there's any group DL loves to point a finger at more than women, it's black men ....

R136, I'm talking about the buses in another major city, not New York City, and not quite as large as NYC.
Never fails, it's always black male teenagers and middle-aged black men who take the elderly and disabled seats at the front.
And they never get up from their seat for anyone.

I personally find the blog and the few news stories about it to be rather sexist/anti-male.
Now there may be some egregious examples, but some of the photos show men sitting with their legs only moderately spread on a train with empty seats! How is this remotely improper? Whoever runs that blog has a pretty disturbed outlook on the world and the male sex.

Wow, what a hateful misandrist. Why are you only concerned with the poor behavior of men, but not women? And, as has been pointed out, many of the photos show no wrong-doing. The blog just attempts to publicly humiliate and shame men who have their legs spread ON TRAINS WITH EMPTY SEATS. It's twisted. If the blog's truly concerned with correcting poor behavior why does it only focus on MEN, many of whom are doing nothing wrong?

First he prob pees all over the bowl because he does not sit down while peeing and then he does not even think about putting the seat down. Men - some are just the biggest insensitive pig heads!
