People who care: Get a life.

Seriously? I walk past dozens of people with their legs splayed every time I get public transport, it never occurred to me to be annoyed by it, it's just a natural posture. It's not an arrogant cockdisplay, it's just a comfortable way to sit, and as a result people tend to naturally fall into that position without thinking. Are you really telling me this ruins your day?

Sitting on a crowded train with people pressed up against you and splaying your legs far apart: Yes, you're an asshole.

Sitting on an empty train with open seats on either side and nobody waiting to sit down: Who the Fark cares.

I find the seats are plenty wide for me to sit with my legs spread into a comfortable position,  without spilling over into anyone else's space, or flashing my general crotchal area at the people sitting across from me. There is no need to splay.

I can actually kind of see this, considering what happened to me the other day. I was on the train minding my own business, just going into Seattle to meet my friend who has the best shrooms when this dude sits down across from me, spreading his legs like he's got something he wants to show off.  I'm like, dude, I don't need to look at your package, and then I notice he's got this tail thing like a squirrel, maybe a kangaroo or something and I realize he's just going to a furry convention or something and he's got stuff in his furry kangaroo pouch or bag or whatever joeys ride in.  So I'm spreading my knees to try to fit in, and then for some reason everyone was screaming and calling 911 and that's when I realized I wasn't wearing pants or even a kangaroo suit, and actually I was hallucinating the furry anyway and then I got arrested.  So, yeah, I can totally see this.

Cross your legs, man-sluts.
 
2013-09-27 12:50:42 PM
I notice most of the biatching was by women.

Grow some balls and see how comfortable it is for you to sit with your legs squeezed together.

If the bus is crowded, I will do it as a courtesy, but it is very uncomfortable, and I'm pretty sure my turnips aren't that much larger than average.

Also; oh my god, who cares?

I like looking at mens crotches, but not on the bus or the train. Most of those guys are not hot.

Come on guys, it's not that hard

Yes, it is that hard.

Putting my legs together squeezes my balls and is the equivalent to a midget standing down there squeezing them tight in his midget fist.
 
2013-09-27 01:31:07 PM
I'll be sure to sit with one leg over the other, then.

I think this falls under the general "don't be an asshole" rule but seriously if you expect men to cross their legs when they sit you're an absolute moron.

Yeah. I'm really annoyed if I'm crammed against the wall and some dude is next to me pushing me over with his legs, which actually happens to me fairly frequently on public transportation. But otherwise, I don't care.

/basically, you should make every effort not to touch other people on public transportation
//I know it's impossible sometimes, but at least make it seem like you're trying

The question is not how I'm sitting.

The question is why are you staring at my junk?  Pervert.
 
2013-09-27 01:45:25 PM
Really?  This is a thing now?  Oh shut the fark up you whiny, entitled bastards.


Funny how sometimes I'm more glad that i don't take public transpo because of the "right" people and not those who are doing it wrong.

Real men don't take public transportation.

How about no. I have balls and will sit how it's comfortable to do so.

I sit slightly open because that is how my legs naturally lay.  Pulling them together hurts my hips.

If the bus is crowded and you're paying enough attention to not spread yourself out against other commuters, then I don't give a crap if you want to sit comfortably when the bus isn't full.

Not sure what IRT train that is, but yeah, it is seriously annoying in 3 scenarios, which are quite common, but they only come into play when it is crowded on the train, otherwise, I don't care. And if someone is obviously very tall, they should get a pass, because mechanics and all. Most folks who do it are not tall.

1) You want to sit down between two people, at least one of which has their legs splayed. Almost every single time, if you either ask (hard to do when everyone's wearing headphones) to sit down or make some pantomime gesture to sit down or just sit down, you get the "tsk" teeth sucking "I'm annoyed" sound as if they'd rather just block people from sitting there and how dare you ask them to move.

2) You are standing and it's rush hour. Guess what? You need the space. All they need to do is sit up straighter. You wind almost always bumping against them and again "tsk".

3) You are sitting and some guy sits down next to you and does that. I haven't moved, and now I got some goon's leg pressed up against mine. Bonus points for sweaty skin in shorts in summer.

No, the real answer is to sit up and be mindful of others. It's not hard. You have an uncrowded subway car? Frigging lie down on the seats for all I care. Just that when folks are on the train, you are part of a community now. Play well with others or GTFO.

I'm generally on board with the sort of feminist / anti-privilege message of that blog.

But a good handful of the pictures are of homeless guys on subways with captions whining about those homeless guys exhibiting their privilege.  fark that.

It's uncomfortable for many men to sit with their legs smashed all they way together. It's not just about ball-comfort, and it's not about showing off our junk either. It's just not how we naturally sit. Our hips, thighs, and pelvises aren't built in the same way as womens', so they should expect us to sit like women. Now, there are many men AND women who make themselves comfortable at the expense of others by sprawling out with their arms or legs in various ways or by leaving their backpacks, purses, laptops, etc in the way. All of these people deserve a little grief.

It really only bothers me when people do this on planes. Those people I hate. HATE.

We're already paying a fortune to be treated like cattle, and dammit, my $400 fare should entitle me to at least the tiny bit of leg room I paid for.

Compared to every other picture I passed by to get to that one, I really don't know what the photographer is asking me to look at here.
