A term used by Third-Wave Feminists to describe men who spread their legs - particularly on subway trains - to make room for their genitalia. However, when women set large purses and shopping bags next to them and take up another seat, it goes unnoticed and is generally dismissed because men are disgusting pigs and penises are bad!
"Stop manspreading, you disgusting pig!" said the fat lady with a large purse taking up the seat next to her.

When a man sits down without having his legs so tightly together he cuts off the blood supply to his genitals and his balls drop off.
James sat down on the train, his legs at an angle of approximately 10 degrees. He is manspreading! James is everything wrong with modern society, is a despicable misogynist and is entirely to blame for the patriarchy.
