A heartbreaking moment

That poor cockroach.  Struck down in the prime of life.

Unfortunately for my older sister, though, we actually do have photos of some of the stupid shit she did.

No, but seriously:  She messaged me out of the blue NINE MONTHS after the fact about my commentary on her post (was she just incessantly combing through the responses that long afterwards?), trying to convince me that her handful of experiences on the world’s most notorious subway justify her intentionally making other people on the subway feel uncomfortable, and then she tries to make it seem like I’m the one that just brought it up out of nowhere.

Dude, you’re not even looking at the magazine.
You look like you were reading, and then noticed Marv Albert walking towards you in panties and thigh-high stockings.

Both Robbie and Mabel either have ice water for blood, or they are both just that hardcore.

omny87: I know us New Yorkers have a reputation for rudeness, but is it really too much effort to just say "hey, move over" instead of passive-aggressively snapping photos of people?

That would mean actually confronting someone face-to-face, and we know by now that most of these “feminists” and “social justice warriors” can’t even be bothered to be held responsible for their own opinions (they are, after all, the source of the majority of anon hate on this site), nor to even stand by them when they come under scrutiny (“DELETE EVERYTHING!”).

It’s easier to be a passive-aggressive coward than to actually do something worthwhile or productive.

If you’re using NYC subway passengers as your example to lend credence to your argument that men purposefully sit with their knees out as a patriarchal “crotch display” conspiracy, you pretty much just sunk your own ship.

We’re talking the subway system that, on more than one occasion, has discovered corpses that had been riding with other passengers for hours without anyone noticing.

They have literally found a fucking SHARK on the NYC subway.

Also, it isn’t a male-only sitting position in the first place.

Not to mention situations like these:

And are we also going to neglect to mention those extra-special ladies who feel their purse deserves its own seat?

So, maybe—just maybe—we can just admit that all human beings are capable of being insensitive assholes, especially on the subway that is legendary for people not giving a fuck what happens on it.

Amazing. This person is upset that the subway post that went viral awhile ago, where I complained about my experiences on the New York subways… is in fact about the New York subway. How dare I talk about the NYC subways in my personal blog? After all I just live in New York, and take the NYC subway every single day. I shouldn’t talk about THAT subway. I should talk about the Utah subway or something.

First of all, those pictures of people sprawling, aren’t real sprawls. They’re inconvenient. Maybe a little rude. When I talk about people sprawling on the subway I’m talking about things like this:

http://mentakingup2muchspaceonthetrain.tumblr.com/image/90553164079

Which by the way, not all of those photos are from NYC, so obviously it’s not JUST an NYC problem. And before you say “Oh that’s such an exaggeration! No one REALLY sits like that!” Obviously they do because there are photos, and my post wasn’t about EVERY SINGLE DUDE WHO SITS WITH A KNEE GAP. No one cares about a reasonable knee gap. My post was about those jerks who take up 3 seats with their knees splayed and their elbows out. Does that happen every day? Nope. Because 98% of the people who ride the subway aren’t complete assholes. My post is about the assholes. No one cares if a dude takes up his whole couch at home. This is about sharing public space.

As for the patriarchal crotch display, those weren’t my words. However men ARE socialized to take up more space. Men feel entitled to more space. 98% of guys aren’t total jerks about it when riding in cramped public spaces, but those that ARE total jerks about it ARE TOTAL JERKS ABOUT IT. Every woman I know who rides the subway in NYC has stories of some guys sprawling all over her. Every single one. A lot of these stories involve them already being seated and then having some guy shove a sweaty thigh into their leg and shove an elbow into their side. Is this every single guy out there? No. No one ever said it was. But there is a minority of guys who absolutely feel entitled to your space, and your attention and that IS an example of the patriarchy.

And this person is so obsessed with demonizing men that they’re apparently ready to deny that there are multiple websites out there devoted specifically to people riding on the NYC subway (funny how the category of “mansitting” on the latter site has all of two entries, and one of them is a woman), and feature myriads of different folks from all walks of life engaging in the same generally rude behavior (including women that think their purse deserves a seat of its own).

They’re also going out of their way to ignore the fact that, at rest, knees tend to point outward.  Then, there’s the fact that, in older time periods (such as the Victorian era), it was originally customary for every person to sit with their legs either together, or crossed, including men.  It was literally part of polite society, which brings the idea of men being “conditioned” to sit in any specific way outside of those restrictions more than a little questionable.

Also, we’re apparently supposed to believe that women on tumblr totally never make up completely bullshit stories about men that are later proven to be false.  Yeah, that totally never happens, right?

But seriously:  If you are truly this bent out of shape by how people sit on the subway (enough to devote an entire side blog to it, which is all kinds of pathetic), you’re either in dire need of psychiatric evaluation, or you’re one of those women who’s most likely to die alone in an apartment full of cats and garbage.

P.S.  It should be noted that this person messaged me out of the blue today about this, perhaps after having obsessively gone through the notes on that post months after the fact.  Probably because I pointed out that she was invading others’ personal space deliberately.
