A Reddit user has scientifically substantiated an annoying feminist male habitBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/a-reddit-user-has-scientifically-substantiated-an-annoying-feminist-male-habit
A few years ago, the world learned what "manspreading" is. Persecution began on representatives of the stronger sex who have the habit of sitting with their legs apart. They were watered, insulted, shamed in social networks and the media around the world, including in our country. Male users from Reddit found it offensive and they decided to scientifically justify their right to sit as comfortably as possible.
According to the fighters for women's rights, men sitting with their legs apart not only show disdain for the people around them, but also hint at their "alpha-masculinity" and the desire to dominate. Particularly zealous representatives of feminist movements perceive such a pose almost as a personal insult and immediately rush to punish the offender.
As it turned out, Reddit users absolutely do not share these beliefs and, in order to defend the rights of men to sit as they please, they tried to justify this habit. Armed with scientific knowledge, the regulars of the site argued hotly and operated with figures and facts until they came to a consensus.
The struggle for men's rights began with a link to a small note that said that men are contraindicated to work with a laptop by placing it on their knees. The author of the article is sure that this way of holding a computer can lead to male infertility.
Discussing the ways of working with a laptop and the position of the legs, the participants of the discussion gradually shifted to the discussion of "manspreading" and their discussions were not in vain. The user with the nickname Jex117 turned out to be the most convincing of all. He believes that men sit with their legs apart, not with malicious intent, but because of anatomical features.
The existing developments also came into play — Jex117 claims that by placing his legs together, a man risks getting the same problems as holding a laptop on his lap. The Reddit user's conclusion was disappointing and smacked of a global feminist conspiracy:
Jex117 also did not forget to add that he is not a boor and in a crowded bus he will not make people uncomfortable by spreading his legs. At the same time, if it does not bother anyone, no one will force him to abandon this comfortable and natural pose for male physiology.
After discussing this topic, the participants of the discussion dispersed as never before and began to recall a variety of cases of gender discrimination against men. In particular, the topic of the office dress code, which was pretty annoying to everyone, was raised. The dispute, as always, was about why ladies can come to work in summer in open sandals and dresses, and men in flip-flops and shorts are not allowed.
Men from offices see another obvious oppression of their rights in the demands to turn off the air conditioner, because of which they have to suffer from the heat in their strict suits.
