Ever Wondered Why Men Sit With Their Legs Jammed In Public Spaces?

Men usually remain the lesser favorable sex when it comes to gaining some special privileges unlike women, be it standing in smaller queues for railway ticket booking or those special coaches in trains. They have to 'compromise'!

'Manspreading' is the new buzz that has made me talking so much in favor of men. It is a neologism used to describe men sitting in public transport with their legs wide apart, thereby covering more than one seat. The usage of the term 'manspreading' and the different postures have faced a lot of Internet criticism and questioning debates in US, UK, Canada and Turkey. The term has been criticized as a 'caricature of feminism' and has been colligated with several examples of women taking up excessive space in public.

Stop the spread please!

Manspreading

The Metropolitan Authority(MTA) in Newyork have issued poster campaigns asking people to maintain respectful postures when other passengers have to stand due to overcrowded buses or trains.

This is what the whole issue is all about.

Manspreading

Well, this kind of sight is no new to any frequent train or bus traveler. See it is genuine, when you are tired after a whole day of work it is obvious to show some signs. Most men tend to work long hours, and so they often land up in a posture like this and I guess it is not a problem at all.

Is that fair enough?

Manspreading

The criticism and campaigns against manspreading have been defended by citing similar behavior exhibited by women in public transport such as taking up adjacent seats with bags or 'she-bagging'. That is surely not fair enough. Don't you think so?

There is a difference!

Manspreading

The public debate began when an anti manspreading campaign was started on Tumblr in 2013. It is important to realize that sitting cross-legged or legs jammed together is really uncomfortable for men but there is a difference between sitting with your legs together and spreading them at 120 degrees obtuse angle. The picture shows that angle.

Is that some erect position for yoga?

Manspreading

Many of the users posted dozens of pictures highlighting manspreading. This picture was one of this whose user was so uncomfortable for sitting with legs together that he believed it was better doing some yoga or exercise! Seriously..

Well, I didn't know this...

Manspreading

A study proves that sitting with legs widespread may indicate dominance and sexual attractiveness for men. Spreading out legs and arms is more sexually attractive when males do it. Images of 'men spreading' got about 87% of interest among female viewers! That is something really surprising!

It is Human right for 'men' too..

Manspreading

We are free to express, dress and even 'sit' the way we want to. So why to discriminate, be it, men or women?  Don't you think the same?
