Let’s spread Manspread and fight the war on manhood before you all pee sitting down
Why do you MANSPREAD? Is it because you are:
a) a man?
b) a man?
c) a ma…. ok, you get the idea. Men are swine who take up too much space on public transport. Men need to sit more like women do.
The Gothamist filmed a woman with a tape measure confronting men on the subway about the space they consume.
The story is entitled:
Confronting Subway Manspreaders
The intrepid female reporter will confront man and the spreaders of their kind of virus. Stop spreading man and the causes of man.
Knowingly or not, you have seen the phenomenon of “manspreading” in nature. You’ve probably been its unwitting victim. The slow (or rapid) creep of a knee into your own by a guy (indeed, it is always a guy) taking up more than his fair share of real estate on public transit…
Left unchecked, the scourge of “manspreading” will proliferate like algae…
Men are pond life.
The MTA is planning a campaign to raise awareness about mass transit etiquette, but we still have a long way to go. The next time you get on the train, look down at your own knees—how far apart are they? If there’s space enough for a litter of puppies or a celebrity selfie group shot, you are taking up too much space. Pull it in. Don’t make us find you.
If a woman with a tape measure approaches you, spread wider. Do the splits. Go knees akimbo.
