Uh, she wants the women to spread their legs and the men to close theirs. Next she'll be crying about the guy across from the girl sitting spread eagle, gawking at her cameltoe. Dumbass design for dumbass people. Most women are probably too modest to use this ingenious design because they're not going to sit with their legs spread. At least not a woman with any dignity or self respect. And no man with any dignity is going to sit in something that smashes his nuts.

What awareness is she aiming for?

Most men dont manspread.
Most men will give up their seat for a lady.
Most men respect women.

Unfortunately men today are painted with broad strokes in a negative light.
That puts them on the defensive from garbage like these chairs.



I used to be that "most men" you refer too but not anymore! They want equality they got it! They (wamen) killed chivalry!

Unless they are wearing a tell that lets me know they are not of the Marxist Zed variety, I will keep my ass planted firmly on the seat and watch them froth at the mouth that I won't recognize them as a female and give up my seat for them to relax a few moments.


They asked for equality they got it!
I would have given the pregnant person my seat, but i didn’t want to assume their gender.

See that's the thing....that's all the vast majority of us; just ordinary people doing ordinary things.
These idiots are such a small section of society yet they are afforded a public profile far larger than their numbers warrant.
So just whose agenda are they serving?

I go to the pub probably more than most, usually four or five times a week.
I like drinking, I like socialising and talking about real stuff with real people.
And coming from North East England we've taken the British national pastime of 'taking the piss' and turned in to a true art form.

And I'm afraid I'm a lost cause when it comes to 'real beer'.
After years of drinking northern Bitter I'm afraid I can't get away with 'real ales' and 'craft beers' etc.
Give me a proper pint of cold John Smiths, pulled tight with a good head along with all the chemicals etc and I'm happy.
I don't mind a few bottles of Peroni, Holsten Pils and one or two other bottled lagers and the occasional Brandy but I'm afraid that's about it.

That should give you a clue about the intent behind this design, shouldn't it?

Of course women are not hoping for seats so they can finally spread their legs...as much men will like to have their nuts crushed by sitting in such an unconfortable chair.

It about creating awareness. It's design...it made to make people think and approach old design from a new angle.

Peace

Stupid is as stupid does.

No amount of arty deflection tactics can alter the fact that this is just a whole load of stupid designed with the sole purpose of further denigrating men and 'manliness'.

You know what's funny..

If I post this picture and ask why I've never seen it on the road..



Most of you will explain to me that this is a concept car. It wasn't made to be on the road but to challenge designers and manufacturers to look at new angles for design and how certain aspects can be found back in later actual models.

But when a chair comes along that attacks the frail macho ego we're all up in the curtains crying about agenda's and conspiracies....

Weird.

Peace

I said your attempt at ridiculing design was comparible to somebody not understanding abstract art.

And I find it hilarious that you think someone like me would not appreciate art. Almost (not quite) as hilarious as you defending a design that looks like a 5-year old built it. There is no surface finish, the cuts are rough, the lines are straight and use awkward angles, the back is low enough to be useless, and it is not visually pleasing.

I really do not "get" Piccaso's work either... but I do not laugh hysterically at it. It is visually interesting. I can understand how others might be enthralled by it. But this thing she threw together out of scrap? Nope, not art, not design, just a way to try and push hatred by making up trash.

There is so much here!

First, the OP linked site is "whimn"



Second, this is clearly sexist. I dont like how when this is clearly called out now, even those who arent into propagandaphilia will assume you are talking about the religious narrative that women cant be sexist, minorities arent racist, etc.

Then, we have the idea that men are the only ones that invade space in public. That right there, like so many things, is a people thing. Women, men, children, dogs, cats, pandemonium!

Then! We have the chairs themselves. Not only do they look like an art student trying out woodworking for the very first time, they dont look comfortable for the men or the women. And, I mean, they look horribly not functional (dysfunctional?).

On top of all that, an award was won for this!

I am amused

Ummm...twat do we owe this honor...

I'm sure the emasculated Nancy boys who reside on that peculiar island are overjoyed at the prospect of jamming their sackless branch tight together...

Feel the rub...?

The next Millennial progressive awareness design will be similar to the chair women sit in when they're getting a pap-smear or giving birth. I can see it already. It'll create awareness for the discomfort of a stranger gazing at your genitalia. We can duct tape the men's legs together at the knees and tighten the tendons that control their wrist movements so they have a permanently bent wrist.

The irony here is that the front of that concept 1958 Ford X 2000 is close to what a woman in a skirt would look like sitting in the girl chair from the OP.

Here's a concept that never took off, pun intended.

By god I'm triggered!!!


This was the laugh I needed this morning.
I've never seen so many guys riled up like this.

You can take our guns, our jobs, our speech, our freedoms,
but don't you dare take away our leg stretch space!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I just witnessed people on here that have NEVER agreed on anything, agree on something.
For that, this lady does deserve an award.

BTW. The ladies chair she created looks pretty stanky. No real lady would ever sit like that!

Yeah I've been meaning to say that the models characters she used to test the chairs were a very poor choice.

Just wait until they decree that men must sit down to pee.

"No more messy toilet seats! Do it for the children!"

At my house, you can start the reeeee! by asking whether the modern bra was designed by a man. The same noise, the same lamenting. The same out-group irritation.

Then they start talking to each other. So much so that they don't notice me putting in the AirPods and picking up the remote.

I'm not really triggered...
Just a bad attempt at sarcasm...

My post is me making fun of the solution someone found for their make believe problem.

I've seen the unintended results of the feminist movement and that's men that dont want a long term relationship with a women.

Dating? Yeah, for awhile.
Pump and dump? Yup
Marriage? Oh hell no.
Men in greater numbers are avoiding the 18 year prison term of child support by not having kids.

Actions have consequences.

How many grains of sand makes a pile?

Examined in isolation, as we are programmed to do, the reaction may seem "award-worthy." But, if we look at it in context, it should be pretty obvious why this bothers men, and perhaps people in general.

I vacillate between incredibly amused and deeply concerned personally. And, of course, Im not referring to this story in isolation. This one is pretty squarely in the amusement category for me, but what it represents in context most certainly concerns me.

There is also the angle that this is "award-worthy" art in the first place. Even the most provocative artists Ive known, who are significantly more over-the-top than this, are very skilled at what they are doing. Their welds, brush strokes, and wood choice with spectacular finishes, are literally works of art within the work of art.

In that respect, its like literally every human endeavor in existence. Just because its "abstract art" does not mean that things like skill and effort are rendered irrelevant.

I wonder if I could get an award for designing a chest covering for women to prevent them from "fem-spreading" their cleavage into my visual space? Now, some guys might be saying, "No, I like seeing their boobs and chest cleft". But, If a man must close his legs to not offend some radical feminist d-bag, then they must also accept that there might be some radical male d-bag that does not want to see their hideous cleavage on display as well, let alone banging into them on the underground.
