After all these years a woman finally came up with a solution to a nonexistent problem.
"Woman Wins Design Award For Anti-Manspreading Chair"
"It came from my own experiences of men infringing on my space in public,” the 23-year old said upon receiving the Belmond Award at New Designers in
Apparently this young lady was upset that men were crowding her but didnt seem to mind the huge fricken purses and shopping bags other women use to
take up to seats on public transit.
"The chair is designed in a manner that men have to sit with their legs close together while women can adjust their chair to sit with theirs wider
So femspreading is fine?
She actually won a design award for this..
"The panel of judges described her work as 'a bold, purpose-driven design that explores the important role of design in informing space, a person's
behaviour and society issues of today'."
The chairs are pictured on the link site.
I have made furniture including chairs and benches and can say without hesitation that both the Male and female versions of her chairs are not
ergonomically comfortable. The flat level seat is a back killer.
I guarantee that her win was entirely political in nature or the rest of the entries were complete garbage.
She should have figured out how to snuff the cologne and perfume people wear.
Much bigger issue.
Maybe her next step will be to design 200+ chairs for all the other genders.
And this does raise a question, what about a converting transgender that wants to display their previously unexposed testicular area?
Another question might be does this constitute body shaming? If I tell a fat woman she takes up to much space I'm a jerk but if a guy has large
genetalia and needs some room hes the jerk.
Hardly seems fair.
By god I'm triggered!!!
What say you?
