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.
I started trying to do this. :3 Also walking more upright.
Guys sit like that because a lot of them have balls and this is comfortable for them, plus they’ve never been told ‘close your legs, it isn’t ladylike’. On public transportation, I make a point to say to men I’m gonna sit next to, ‘excuse me’ or ‘more space, please?’ and gesture at their legs or their luggage, and they sit up and take less space and gather their stuff up and smile every time.
Maybe I’m being too ‘nice’ here or whatever, but it seems to me that claiming a space for yourself doesn’t have to be a passive aggressive guerrilla action. Guys aren’t always out to be hogs, they often just don’t fucking realize, and they won’t if you don’t say anything. Use your words and ask for what you want.
Imagine if your follower count turned into money
I’d still be broke
what if it was your post count
I could finally go to comic con
Hi, I have seen a lot of these things on tumblr before and I wanted to do one because my situation has seriously gotten out of hand. This little cutie standing next to me is my 7-year-old sister. She’s in second grade and is being bullied because our dad died a year and a half ago. Every other day she comes home off the bus crying because some asshole little kid wants to grind some salt into that wound. Today she told me people were kicking her on the bus and when she turned to her friend and asked for what she should do, the little bitch said ‘ask your dad’.
The school won’t do anything about it, the bus drivers won’t do anything about it either. My mother is losing her mind because the school district is just letting this go under the radar. This is very hurtful to my baby sister and I want her to feel like there are people who care about her.
I just want people to like or reblog this so she can see in numbers how many people think that this is bull shit and it needs to be stopped.
who the fuck would say shit like that
i will personally spoon out the kidneys of the little fucking shit that said that

The first gay marriage proposal in the White House.
An active duty U.S. Marine Corps captain made history over the weekend by becoming the first gay man to pop the question to his partner at the White House.
In the photo: Matthew Phelps proposing to his partner, Ben Schock. Congrats to the couple, and may their journey be happier than ever.
THE GUY IN THE BACK JUST NODS AT THE KID
like, ‘yeah you can totally sit there’
New Pope is the best Pope. He doesn’t hate on everyone who doesn’t conform to his faith. He lets tiny children sit in his big official chair. He poses for selfies. He is a good Pope and I hope he is with us for a long time.
this is actually significant because that isn’t just “the official chair.”
that’s the Holy See.
The Holy See is considered the sovereign of Vatican City. No, seriously.
Every other pope has used a throne for the Holy See. Francis replaced the ornate object with THE SAME CHAIR THAT EVERY OTHER LEADER WHO VISITS THE VATICAN USES. This was an action that created a considerable stir, as one might imagine. It was a significant remark, metaphorically, putting the pope at the same level as every other world leader. No greater a man than his peers.
And after all of that, he sees a little kid run past him and lets him sit in the freaking Holy See.
And no one stops him.
Good man. Best pope.
