Fellow blogger miss maddie, whose blog A Day with the Mistress Borghese I adore, did a post about Manspreading. Manspreading?? What exactly is that???
This, I guess
Apparently, it's becoming an issue for users of public transportation.
So much so, that New York has begun a new campaign asking folks to please be considerate and share the space for fellow passengers. In other words, they want guys to close their legs.
Nope. Ain't gonna happen.
And here's why: When my siblings and I had to share the back seat of the car, my sister would always complain about the spread legs of us boys. "Why can't you keep your legs together!?!"
Finally, one day, my brother said, "Because things get in the way."
"I never realized how 'out front' they are," as Faithful Reader Jean put it many months ago. Yes, on the outside, things certainly do generate from the front of the lower abdomen.
But, in the sitting position everything drops and hangs between the thighs.
This normal position naturally pushes a man's legs apart.
Even when I danced and had full control over the muscles of my body, in a sitting position, the legs still naturally spread apart.
Unless, our legs are extended and crossed at the ankles,
or crossed at the knees (and even then it's tough)
or, we're lying on our sides and gravity lends an assist
it really is a struggle to pull the knees together.
