The act of men spreading legs - particularly on a subway train - to create space for genitalia, which has come under fire by certain feminist-leaners who insist the practice takes up too much room on crowded trains.
The dudes took up all the damned space with their manspreading.

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.

While the rationale behind manspreading is perfectly valid, to single this problem onto men is just plain ridiculous. This has nothing to do with gender, it's simply a matter of public etiquette. If a girl spreads her legs out while the bus is jam packed with people, people would be pretty pissed too.

Do not listen to any feminist suggestions. Instead, every man and human should simply stick to this guide:
1) When the bus/metro capacity is under 25%, spread your legs as you so desire
2) When the bus/metro capacity is 25-75%, generally spreading is fine as people have other seats to choose from
3) When the bus/metro capacity is over 75%, it's best to play it safe and tuck your legs because people will likely want to sit in the adjacent seat

Me: You know what misses me off so much? When people leg spread on the bus. There was this guy who freakin' blocked two seats with his legs on the bus. Like, I ain't gonna complain about that if the bus was half empty, but the bus was full and there was an old lady who wanted to sit down but the guy was too busy on his phone to notice her.
Her: Don't you mean manspreading?
Me: No, I mean leg spreading.

When a feminist forgets men have balls due to an aura that naturally repels all men.

The biological need to have your testicular temperature lower than 25 ºC for male fertility. This temperature in required for the process of sperm development, or spermatogenesis, to proceed normally. The testicular blood supply is also specialized to help maintain a lower scrotal temperature.
But that's why we have our testicles out of our body and not inside...
