Ironically, many women wouldn't fit in that chair.

Now let's solve the problem of women with purses that look like overnight bags, taking up space on the floor of the train, or inching over to their seat partners space, or hitting old ladies in the head as they go down the aisles of buses.

Interesting; I posted an article about this and it was removed.

Speaking as a female, I prefer the "man-spreading" men over the Trudeaus.

That chair is ridiculous, by the way.

Well it doesn't work because no man would sit in it to begin with.

More of the androgyny of the far-left fruitcakes. Toxic femininity taken to extremes.

Does an anti-womanspreading chair come with a built-in mute button?

Some are lauding the design, calling manspreading a "microaggression" towards women; others aren't. Nonetheless, it's only a matter of time before this contraption is required on college campuses.
That part I put in bold has to be one of the dumbest things I read recently. People, regardless of their gender like to be comfortable when the sit.
I am a big guy and find myself having one leg cocked to where my ankle is on top of my other leg close to the knee. I have no clue if that would be considered a microaggression or not, as I never even put any thought into how I sit.
So unless I am sitting in church or the like where others are sitting right next to me, I am going to spread out in any fashion that feels comfortable, snowflakes be damned.

To me this rubbish is just malcontents looking for something to complain or be offended about.
