In all honesty I love One Piece more than I love myself
I’ve begun silently fighting back against jerks on the subway who sit as spread out as possible. Basically I match your stance.
This guy was sitting on the train with his knees splayed and his hands on the seat to either side of him. So I slowly backed up into the seat next to him forcing him to either move his hand or have me sit on it. Then I spread my knees equally wide and stuck my elbows out just as far.
It’s amazing how uncomfortable this makes men.
Eventually he closed his knees more (so I closed mine.) The ladies across from me noticed this silent warfare and were slightly confused. When he finally got off the train and I sat like a “lady” they realized what I did and grinned at me.
Yep. This is my new thing to do on the subway.
ur a little rebel i like u
You know why most guys sit like that?
It’s a body language signal known as a “crotch display” and it’s used to show dominance/confidence.
This is why guys get uncomfortable when women do this, and also why women are told to sit “like a lady” - basically, without the crotch display. When women do it, they’re telling all the dudes that they’re either stronger or on equal standing with them.
So I say right on, ladies! Go for it.
I started trying to do this. :3 Also walking more upright.
Guys sit like that because a lot of them have balls and this is comfortable for them, plus they’ve never been told ‘close your legs, it isn’t ladylike’. On public transportation, I make a point to say to men I’m gonna sit next to, ‘excuse me’ or ‘more space, please?’ and gesture at their legs or their luggage, and they sit up and take less space and gather their stuff up and smile every time.
Maybe I’m being too ‘nice’ here or whatever, but it seems to me that claiming a space for yourself doesn’t have to be a passive aggressive guerrilla action. Guys aren’t always out to be hogs, they often just don’t fucking realize, and they won’t if you don’t say anything. Use your words and ask for what you want.
OMG so I just figured out the word “hurt”
it’s past, present and future
you will be hurt
you are hurt
you were hurt
BECAUSE IF SOMETHING TRULY HURT, IT NEVER REALLY STOPS
you poetic little shit
it’s because… it’s an adjective… …
you will be stupid
you are stupid
you were stupid
things that are way harder than they should be:
- spreading cold butter on soft bread
- getting a good education
- sacrificing a child for the glory of our lord satan in public
- loving whoever you want
- getting asked to go on a date i mean seriously damn
