Debunking Manspreading

manspreading-2

Guido is always reluctant to wade into the culture wars being waged by the second rate teenage thinkers of the alt-right and their mirror image opponents, the politically correct, snowflakey, social justice warriors. However yesterday the Telegraph’s Radhika Sanghani wrote a piece complaining that Boris was “a serial manspreader”. By which she meant he is a man who is frequently pictured in a seated position…

Radhika explains “The term was coined by feminist bloggers tracking anti-social behaviour on public transport”, we learn in New York two men have actually been arrested for manspreading. She blames the ordinary sedentary posture of Boris on his “male privilege… women are exempt from this phenomenon, as their lack of natural privilege means their legs are able to rest side-by-side… It’s unclear exactly why he needs that amount of space. Does he have an issue with his legs? Thighs? Feet? Balance?” Radhika evidently has a weak grasp on anatomy.

Now if you look at the picture all the men sitting in the front are sitting in the same manly* manner, all the women are sitting ladylike with their knees together. This is normal, it is not a problem, not a privilege of the patriarchy. It is a matter of anatomical comfort. Stop trying to emasculate Boris…

*Apart from Jeremy Hunt. If you have ever met him you will know he is a special case.

A senior Leaver tells Guido:

“Remainers have been outgunned. They were telling us EEA was nailed on and Spreadsheet Phil was going to get a 5 year transition.”
