And for all these reasons, I’ve decided to scalp you, and burn your village to the ground.
I’ve begun silently fighting back against jerks on the subway who sit as spread out as possible. Basically I match your stance.
This guy was sitting on the train with his knees splayed and his hands on the seat to either side of him. So I slowly backed up into the seat next to him forcing him to either move his hand or have me sit on it. Then I spread my knees equally wide and stuck my elbows out just as far.
It’s amazing how uncomfortable this makes men.
Eventually he closed his knees more (so I closed mine.) The ladies across from me noticed this silent warfare and were slightly confused. When he finally got off the train and I sat like a “lady” they realized what I did and grinned at me.
Yep. This is my new thing to do on the subway.
ur a little rebel i like u
You know why most guys sit like that?
It’s a body language signal known as a “crotch display” and it’s used to show dominance/confidence.
This is why guys get uncomfortable when women do this, and also why women are told to sit “like a lady” - basically, without the crotch display. When women do it, they’re telling all the dudes that they’re either stronger or on equal standing with them.
So I say right on, ladies! Go for it.
WE DO NOT SIT WITH OUT LEGS SPREAD BECAUSE WE WANT TO ‘SEXUALLY DOMINATE THE SCENE’ OR WHATEVER BULLCRAP YOU WANT TO COME UP WITH.
WE SIT LIKE THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE TESTICLES IN THE MIDDLE THAT ARE FUCKING SENSITIVE TO HEAT AND PRESSURE, MAKING IT MORE COMFORTABLE TO SPREAD OUR LEGS.
WE CLOSE OURS WHEN YOU ‘IMITATE’ US BECAUSE WE REALISE YOU WANT MORE SPACE AND SO WE BE POLITE AND GIVE IT TO YOU
WE SIT LIKE THIS ANYWHERE
HOW ARE WE OPRESSING YOU WHEN WE SIT LIKE THIS ON OUR OWN, IN PRIVATE?
NOT EVERYTHING IS THE GODDAMN PATRIARCHY
I`m pretty sure whoever took this pic just has a foot fetish..
The assumption by men that they deserve to take up more room in public places simply because they have a penis is absolutely part of the patriarchy. Check your privilege.
MISSING CAT! this is BOOGER, he was last seen on Glendale Blvd (at SILVER LAKE BLVD near CHA CHA) please keep an eye out for him. Contact @codifischer if you see anything.
I love animals of all shapes and sizes. You know that, internet. Last Friday, we looked at some cool animals. This otter can get you a drink from a vending machine! Helpful!
This is one helpful otter!

This is my chosen superpower.
Um, I’m not sure why I didn’t know the Spice Girls had a Christmas song, but I sure as fuck do now and so do you.
This showed up in my work inbox this morning, and while I’m no marketing expert, I’m pretty sure this is what it looks like before someone gets fired.
