in my Human Sexuality class we discussed how women are taught to sit vs how men sit. men take up as much space as they want, because they are oooo men yes men take up 3 seats if you need to yes men
but women are taught to take up as little space as possible, cross your legs keep your arms in your lap don’t even use your whole seat only use half the seat
it’s bullshit and any time I’m sitting next to some rude asshole on the bus who tries to take up half my seat I give them a nasty look and say “would you mind sitting in your own fucking seat?”
men sit like that because of balls
would u like me to sit that way because my boobs are to big?
why would you spread your legs because of your boobs
God i hope that isnt actually a discussion in a classroom for fucks sake
lmao idk where patheticboy43’s balls are located but if they’re such an issue you need to spread your legs wider than the Grand Canyon on a crowded bus then you better see a doctor cause that ain’t healthy
I have male genitalia & I don’t need to spread eagle when I sit down, I sit quite daintily which has always annoyed my father.
Like most things gender, it has nothing to do with biology and all to do with socialization & hetero-patriarchy.
^^ word. Once I remember when I was interning and living alone in DC it was so hot and sweaty. This guy sitting next to me kept his legs open where his sweaty thigh was touching mine. I kept moving my legs CLOSER AND CLOSE TOGETHER - I was already crossing my legs and probably looks like I was trying to be a contortionist - but the GUY KEPT OPENING HIS LEGS. It was so annoying to give up and have my personal space invaded. Now, 6 years alter I would have said/done something, but I feel like he did it so he could touch me, not that he needed a seat and a half’s worth of space. He wasn’t doing it to the guy on the other side of him. eww.
