The subway is the favorite place of no one, ever. It’s crowded, hot, and makes you think death is imminent every time the train makes the slightest turn.
For many, though, none of these annoyances hold a candle to manspreading. There’s already barely enough room in the subway car, and it only gets worse when guys insist on spreading their legs, stretching their arms, and basically assuming the Lounging Douche position.
It’s inconsiderate, unnecessary, and an immature way of signaling dominance to a crowd of people who will never, ever be impressed with you. Dude, you’re on the subway. Your only social mission should be “Don’t irritate everyone around me.”
However, according to science, there may be more to manspreading than simply being an obnoxious commuter.
