Xojane is kind of an amusing site to visit, because it turns trivial feminist bullshit into an art form. Here are some sample headlines for your enjoyment….
Xojane has a regular feature called Unpopular Opinion, and oh my, was this opinion unpopular!
It’s actually not a bad argument – a rare moment when I recommend you read something written by a feminist for its informational value.
To insist a fat person stand so two thin people might sit is wrong and rude. To suggest that the fat person’s body is at fault is appalling, and some might even claim it is discrimination. And yet, if it was the same bus, with a passenger that is not obese but male-presenting, suddenly it’s fine to shame him online, to take his photo without permission, and even to come into nonconsensual, unprovoked physically contact with him.
This is part of a larger subculture that is more akin to a sickness than activism. It’s somehow okay to treat men as second class citizens and police their public actions while women should be allowed to do basically anything they want, including violating strangers by forcing them into contact with your ass. If we read a piece about a man on public transportation intentionally sitting on women’s purses/bags, or bigger people’s bodies, the collective internet would shit itself in outrage.
There are actually a lot of good reasons a man might sit with his legs wide. One of these reasons is propagation of the human species. Namely, sitting down, especially in uniform pants/boilersuits or business casual slacks (AKA, the categories of workwear most men don), tend to bifurcate and cut into the scrotum as a man sits down. The inseam cuts into the balls as the fabric bunches and tightens over the quads, and cramming the legs towards each other amplifies the whole mess.
Should the clothing’s crotch seam not prove an issue, the testicles are still very vulnerable and sensitive. Find a testicle-possessing male and ask him if he’s ever crushed a nut crossing his legs, or accidentally sat on one while freeballing. His sudden pallor should be reason enough to give the boys some space.
The writer continues with some anatomical lessons explaining the differences between men and women’s pelvic structures (hint: one needs to get a baby safely out) and why men are more likely to be affected by physical injuries than women (hint: one of them does shitty, dangerous, physically hard work), and OMG, the feminists in the comments sections lost their collective minds!
This Keven Spacey gif sums up their reaction to the suggestion that “manspreading” is perhaps just a bit of man-hating feminist hysteria.
Over 900 comments so far. Here are some of the more charming ones:
Well, bless their little hearts for at least being consistently opposed to facts, logic and well-reasoned arguments. And there’s something particularly hilarious about the fact that so many are convinced Julie Winters is a man, because only a man could construct a good argument pointing out the hypocrisy of feminists? Gee, I’ve never heard that one before.
Feminist: now a synonym for cannibal?
Lots of love,
