To a certain extent yes.

However it's still taking up space that you do not need.

People complaining about people hogging a chair with their bag are equally right but it concerns the same subject...being inconsiderate.

I may have missed the whole topic of manspreading and how it is somehow tied up to feminism but how I look at it this argument boils down to:

"If you can hog a chair with your bag, I can hog a chair by sitting extra wide"

This does not seem like a very constructive way of solving problems.

Peace

Basically, when men sit with a wide leg spread, feminists decided it was all a way to assert their power and patriarchy and nothing else. Actually, ther e are some skeletal differences that do tend to make a wider sitting posture more comfortable for people with wide hips or hip dysplasia or impingement. And the way men's hips and spines are angled also lend more toward a wider sitting posture.

That's not license to take up two or three seats, but there are reasons why you see men sitting wider legged. It's not a power play from the patriarchy.

Just spread out anyway. You can bring something to sit on the edges she built in to that ugly contraption. You can keep your legs shoulder width apart as your shoulders are defining the area required to sit or stand properly anyway.

I identify as female when sitting, so I'm femspreading. Problem solved, checkmate clown world.

This nasty woman doesn't understand the concept of having 2 testicles dangle between your legs. "Man-Spreading" is basically a way not to crush your testicles and sit comfortably. No one is demanding woman stop using tampons because as a plumber, I constantly have to do service calls and pull tampons out of ejector pumps after telling the woman countless times over and over, do..no..flush..your..pompoms...Just because it's an inconvenience to YOU, doesn't mean people have to adhere to your almightyness. Stop putting your handbags on seats beside you then refusing to move them on a crowded bus or train. smh

cant we accept some people are a-holes? Spreads too much, occupies seats with handbags...

By all means. It is a fair world. All should be free to do so. We can agree, I hope, that nothing should stay outside the shoulder width. Can't control Shoulder width.

Hahaha! I'm not mad at her for making the attempt. By the looks of it that chair won't stop me from man manspreading. If if did, then I'd probably just stand and use it to manspread Captain Morgan style.

I hate the fact weak humans take up my space at all.

I like her idea, I'm going to adapt it to suit my needs.

Until she gets strong enough and grows a pair of balls that space is mine. She can throw as many chairs as her weak arms allow. I'm staying here with my legs open. Even if those crocodile feminine tears start flowing my legs will remain spreading.

Even the most pathetic of us are starting to win awards so I mean that's a point for progress


I wonder if she has ever tried talking to the opposite sex? I'd assume no. More time socialising and less time making stupid inventions that will only ever win her an "award" would maybe get her to return to earth.

Anyway, to all the females that still live in reality may you have a beautiful weekend and enjoy the none sweaty balls you and your partner get to partake in. If this girls succeeds I fear smelly balls will return.

Just a matter of time...

Edit: After careful study of thE female version this young tart doesn't even care about married woman!!! Did she not see how small she made the backside? I think she did and just doesn't care about woman that have found happiness.

If I was a married female I'd be livid right about now.

Seems not so bright to design a chair that won't be used. Doesn't this woman understand the are children in 3rd world country's melting from global warming and aids, they just want a chair to sit in! How selfish of her.

I think this girl just didn't listen when her mom told her it's inappropriate for little girls to sit with their legs open, or maybe it's a erm, deeper metaphor she needs?

If the point is to be sat in, and isn't to tell people how they should sit (or how they are sitting wrong), I still fail to see the purpose of this chair.
Why did you respond but ignore my main question? Why is it OK to claim victimhood today and then do what you feel was done to you on others? it's not self defense, it's aggression, but she wins an award for it?!

I know it doesn't seem bright to you that somebody would design something that isn't going to be used...I believe you are not alone in failing to grasp the concept.

The point indeed isn't about telling people how they should sit, it's about forcing people to look at a social problem that, to me, isn't about feminism. It's about conduct in public.

I understand, like Freeborn above me so eloquently pointed out with his post, that manspreading is deemed as an other "PC"-thingy like the thread he linked to about renaming stuff in the name of equality.

Pc or political correctness is used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society.

In my humble opinion I, as a man, could also be very much affected by manspreading and so it is isn't something exclusively for women.

Manspreading, to me, is about people who are failling at adapting to a social enviroment just as much as people putting their bags, feet whatever in places other people could sit.

This isn't about feminism, it's about a growing individualised society that only cares about their own interest, comfort etc at the cost of others.

Peace

Is Berkeley still considered part of the US? Ummm... how about a trade? You guys can have it and we'll take... maybe a nice spot of tea in exchange? We'll even provide the tea.

I don't want anyone invading the space of anyone else. I had front row seats at a concert and the guy to my left was so large he was part way into my seat, I had to lean to my right so that we were not touching. So yeah I agree. But then that makes me confused as to why there is a chair for men that keeps them from spreading their legs and a chair for women that enables them to do so. Off topic sort of but this also means that if you are like the gentleman I mentioned above, you either need to pay for 2 seats or you need to pay for like half of my seat, but then I guess that is "fat shaming" but being fat doesn't give you the right to invade the space of others either.

When you think about the physical biology of both sexes, it's the women who should be "relaxing".

I think this little invention is pretty slick. Suck it up, boys.

their own interest, comfort, etc. . . .


You're funny. What have men been doing for centuries? Oh, yes, doing whatever they want at everyone else's expense.

I'm anxious to read through this thread but have to get back to work, I just have to say-

The way I sit and adjust my legs once sitting is entirely based upon my genitals and how squished they are. I do not wear tight pants by any means and I'm not saying this in a "I've got a large package", but if my knees are closer than a foot apart, my sh!t is getting all pushed together and more so than it being uncomfortable, it straight up hurts my balls. If some people want to have a discussion about my genital comfort, feel free, but that's a dangerous slope to be going down in the context of doing what's "right" for the sexes. This is like a male finding a solution to uncomfortable tampons.

Unf*ckingbelievable.
