Woman Sick Of Men Spreading Legs In Subway Gets Revenge, And Here’s How Men Respond


We have, in the last few years, been subjected to an odd kind of lazy, unimaginative wordplay whereby the word ‘man’ is prefixed onto certain things, ascribing male characteristics to them somewhat unnecessarily. Examples include: manbag, man-scaping, man-flu, mansplaining and now, manspreading, which is the male act of taking up unnecessary space on public transport by splaying his legs too wide.

The city of Madrid evidently thinks that manspreading has become such a problem that they decided to ban it altogether on their public transport system, in order to “remind transport users to maintain civic responsibility and respect the personal space of everyone on board.”

This woman decided to fight back against this obnoxious behavior, by giving men a taste of their own medicine and teaching them how to respect her personal space. She was quickly praised by another woman, who attempted to give a psychological reasoning behind the phenomenon of manspreading, believing that it’s basically just another sign of male dominance and oppression.

Enter a guy on the scene, coming in to ‘mansplain’ (ugh) his take on the situation, which he believes is actually quite simple, and the entire discussion is just basically, nuts.

Scroll down below to check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think about the issue in the comments. Do the ladies have a point? Or is it really just a simple matter of comfort for the cojones, placement of the plums? Or are some people just assholes, unaware of their own selfish behavior? Join the discussion!
