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.

by Anonymousreply 20009/29/2013

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".

by Anonymousreply 109/25/2013

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.

Sorry, OP, I too take her side. I'm male, 6'3" and I don't sit like that on the subway.

My favorite response is when a woman asked a young "dude" whose legs were spread apart taking up nearly 3 seats: "You about to give birth? If not, I'd like a seat."

No, R5, this appears just to be an array of people who think gay-bitches with frau obsesessions are worse than fraus.

Oh sure, R9, OP finds it "painful" to sit with his legs closed because it's too much pressure on his massive balls.

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?

[quote]Why don't women understand this? Why must women understand or CARE about every last thing that concerns men? Shut your legs and your yap for five minutes; the discomfort won't kill you. And if you really need to open your legs THAT wide to feel comfortable sitting down, you might want to investigate whether you have elephantiasis of the balls or something.

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).

How did that become not-normal and not-expected for men to do, sitting in public where the seats are crowded and meant one per person?

Again when I say I have zero need to do the leg sprawl, I'm talking *need.* Not preference. You know, I'm also really tired sometimes, my body would prefer to throw a blanket down and lay across 5 seats, but I don't *need* to do that either.

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.

by Anonymousreply 8609/25/2013

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 Anonymousreply 8709/25/2013

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.

When I lived in NYC I always stood on the train if I was entering with a large group of people. I was a teenager-early 20s, so why fight with middle aged, elderly, or entitled people for a seat? If the train was half full, legs went up on the seat (never shoes-- rude!) and I kicked back. If more people came in, I moved and took up one spot. The subway etiquette of some people always turned me off.

Part of the reason for the open legs is because men have relatively narrow pelvis compared to their height. It creates stability.

by Anonymousreply 12909/25/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 13809/25/2013

This thread is ridiculous. Any woman who has shared a work space with men can tell you that they spread out, take up lots of space, hang their arms over the backs of chairs, etc. Not talking about you prissy queens, STRAIGHT men.

"OP is a piece of shit and misogynist. Fuck you. I'm with the tumblr lady calling out these obnoxious men. I personally go out of my way to make sure people have room. If I encounter a male sprawling asshole, I will invade "his" space to make him accommodate others."

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?

by Anonymousreply 14009/25/2013

R139, maybe so, but this thread is primarily about men who spread their legs extra wide on subways and buses taking up space on the seats beside them.

by Anonymousreply 14109/25/2013

This blog is run by a dude, just for the record.

Triggers my subway geek gene, looking at train cars around the world. Anything with bright yellow poles is usually German. The fuzzy blue seats are clearly London metro.

Carry on.

Same thing with Canadian Aboriginals, 99% of the time they take the first possible seat and NEVER offer it to anybody.

And don't even get me started on how many of them didn't even pay the fucking bus fare in the first place!

by Anonymousreply 14309/25/2013

Even on the very rare almost non-existent occasion that a black man sitting up front in the elderly or disabled seats gets up for an older person, it is very infuriating that they take the seats in first place.

I hate them with the a passion.

I happen to need a seat up front and they are always hogging them like imbeciles.

R60 They paid for that seat. They have every right to recline as far back as they want.

by Anonymousreply 14509/26/2013

Also to be despised and hated - people like R145 who insist on reclining on planes no matter how uncomfortable they make the person behind them.

R145 really has poor character as a person.

R149 If my flight is over several hours, I'm reclining my seat as soon as they give me the signal. Especially a late night flight. I will SLOWLY recline. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. You really need to relax.

Only selfish fucks recline all the way. Really rude.

by Anonymousreply 15109/26/2013

No, R150 who is also R145 and R147, you are an asshole.

Reclining the seat makes the person behind you uncomfortable about 99 percent of the time.

And anyone who is 5'9" and above in height is often put in active distress and even a degree of agony by assholes like you.

You have poor character and care about no one except yourself.

And there is no need for reclining. If the seats did not recline, you would do just fine. You're a head case and a lemming. You cannot even think critically.

by Anonymousreply 15209/26/2013

R151 Seriously, remove the stick from your ass, slowly recline your seat and chill. You're an uptight bitch.

by Anonymousreply 15409/26/2013

That's the point R152. The seats DO recline. Why? Because it's a long flight and people need to be comfortable. I'm 5'11" and people who slowly recline their seat in front of me has every right.

by Anonymousreply 15509/26/2013

Any reclining whatsoever, no matter to what degree of reclining, makes it very unpleasant for anyone 5'9" and above.

There is absolutely no need for reclining.

If the seats would not recline, people who currently insist on reclining would do just fine without the reclining function.

[quote]I will SLOWLY recline.

The speed with which you recline is not the issue. If you recline so far you are practically in the lap of the poor person behind you, you are an asshole, whether you got there quickly or slowly.

R156 Let me guess, you're bald (and not in an attractive way), you live in the south, you whine about every little thing making a mountain out of a molehill, and you scream bloody murder on a plane "just because you CAN recline doesn't mean you should".

Gee, r159, could this be because

a) you're always fully reclined yourself

b) the person in front of you probably ISN'T fully reclined most of the time, since most people aren't douchey enough to do that.

While I agree that lots of men do this on the subway, and it's totally annoying...I agree with the OP in that this blog has a series of very non-incriminating pictures of men doing this when there is plenty of room elsewhere.

by Anonymousreply 16409/26/2013

It's fascinating to look at those pictures of people riding the subway. It's as if there are no homeless people with Hefty bags bulging with empty cans, older people with walkers or canes, people with filled to the brim shopping carts and people seated on a Hoveraround large enough to take up six spaces.

I agree, R178. Maybe they should start doing what they do in other subways in other countries --- and have female- and male-only cars. Then there wouldn't be any of these problems, and imagine the gaysex.

Men are very insensitive. I am friends with an Asian couple. I am single female and the guy always leaves the toilet seat up when he uses my toilet. I find it revolting that he is so insensitive. 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! I am also very pissed when people, and mostly guys do this, put their feet/shoes on the seats in the subway.
