Manspreading, or man-sitting, is the practice of sitting in public transport with legs wide apart, thereby covering more than one seat. Both this posture and usage of the term has caused some internet criticism, and debates in the USA, UK, Turkey and Canada. The term first appeared in public debate when a feminist anti-manspreading campaign was started on the social media website Tumblr in 2013; the validity of the term has been questioned. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) in the New York metropolitan area and Sound Transit of Seattle have instituted poster campaigns encouraging respectful posture when other passengers have to stand due to crowding on buses and trains. Transport officials in cities such as Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., however, have denied that it is a significant problem. The MTA campaign will carry slogans like "Dude, stop the spread please!". In some cases, people who find manspreading offensive have taken to photographing manspreading, and posting those images on the Internet.

I think they are all good trolls. At least that is what I tell myself, to make me feel better about humanity lol. Tumblr is full of 10/10 trolls, or total retards. I prefer to tell myself they are hillarious trolls and stay away from that cesspool of the internet. I would rather go to 4chan
