I do not man-spread and have no problem with tickets being written for that (when the train is crowded), feet on the chair, and other issues (I do have a problem if those offenses are officially classified as "crimes" as that's just ridiculous to me). I shouldn't have to ask you to move over to sit down. Just be considerate and close your legs.

Is man-spreading ALWAYS a black thing? Like perpetually scowling?

Perpetually scowling is certainly NOT a black thing. I live in a neighborhood that is pretty much almost 90% breadknot and it's scowl city 24/7 (park slope). Even their crotchfruit scowl.

Absolutely not. I've seen lots of white guys with gymnastic-split-length spreads. I've always thought it was a male ego/dominance thing.

Haha. maybe they could tackle and handcuff the dog and confiscate the bag. "You're coming downtown lady!" "But I'm white!!! And female!!! Wahhh!!"

Nah, it's just because that's the default position they fall into when a guy sits down. Touching your knees together requires conscious effort that men aren't used to making.

What the hell does "breadknot" mean and does its use mean we can now start using the N word without worry or does the double-standard continue?

Good problem to have. So now u know all the men that are standing up are packing. haha
