Men Who Take Up Space

I'm pissed. I take public transit (the train to be exact) to work every day, and every day I either experience or witness the same thing: male-identified people literally taking up too much space in their seat. This morning, I saw a man sit down next to a young woman. As he splayed his knees wide to the sides, he actually made the young woman spill her coffee. She was completely crunched up in order to make room for the space he thought he needed and deserved.

I don't care if you think you're big, or if you think you must spread your legs wide in order to accommodate your "large" dick. The reality is, you don't. For godsakes, become aware. Look at the woman you're sitting next to...does she look happy? Does she look squished? Probably. This is when you close your fucking legs.

This is when you STOP taking up so much space.
