Apparently men have a habit of spreading their legs slightly when they’re sat down. And, unfortunately, that includes when they’re on public transport such as buses and trains.
Some women have taken offense to this habit, and branded it “manspreading”. Now, while this is obviously a thing, is there an actual, practical reason why men spread their legs?
In a word, yes. Men generally have a penis and testicles attached to them. And these can sometimes get in the way, and also get very hot and sweaty. Hence the need to spread your legs.
This video shows one man on a mission to educate women as to why men might occasionally take up too much room on seats. And I fully expect him to now be accused of mansplaining.
