In their bid for continued relevance, Western feminists love to complain about a variety of innocuous habits – especially, it seems, if they’re committed by men.
From ‘mansplaining’ to so-called manspreading, their vilification of innocent blokes is virtually endless.
Yet, despite their righteousness, it seems the sisterhood need to look a little closer to home before dishing out criticisms of the opposite sex. Especially when it comes to public transport.
That’s because a series of images captured across the globe’s public transport networks show numerous women committing a carriage-sized cardinal sin: spreading arms, legs and luggage in a selfish bid forspace.
From New York to London, some of the world’s busiest commuter trains have offered a reality-check for Generation Snowflake.
Here’s our carefully-curated selection of the very best (so far)…
Don’t miss your stop! Proving that femspreading is not an ironic gesture, this woman takes a nap on London’s Victoria Line
Sister act: One woman strikes a rather alpha cross-legged pose (left), while a bus passenger blocks a luggage rack (right)
His expression says it all: A woman cuts onions on a wooden chopping board while stinking out a train carriage in NYC
Perhaps it’s her personal carriage? One young woman blocks off two seats – and a third that’s reserved for disabled travellers
Now that’s femspreading! One woman (left) was snapped on the NYC subway doing major spreadage, while another (right) took up three places with her bags, out-stretched legs and millennial entitlement
Comfort comes first for her! One lady sits with her legs closed, while another shamelessly embraces her femspreading
Make yourself at home! This Londoner seems a little too comfortable as she takes her shoes off and reads on the Underground’s Central Line. Meanwhile, a man standing near the doorway eyes-up the waste of space
Charming! A member of Generation Snowflake stops an older man from sitting down on the commute home
Millennial fail: One New Yorker manages to carry a seriously inappropriate item on a cramped commuter train
Two for the price of one! This weary-looking passenger bags a seat for her bag on London’s Victoria Line,a main Tube artery
Careful! One young woman (left) is perilously close to crossing a line between relaxing and femspreading, while another stops a fellow passenger from sitting down – because she’s resting her ARM on a spare seat
Bag it up: This commuter would rather give her bag a seat, than offer it to another passenger on London’s busy Tube network
Doesn’t she know it’s ONE seat each? This traveller is so engrossed in her phone that she’s oblivious to her space-blocking
Put your feet up and relax! One woman – possibly a millennial – decides it’s appropriate to put her feet up over two seats
Space travel: This woman has not done the sisterhood any favours by spreading her legs so far apart on London’s Tube
