The toxic masculinity thread

I went to pick up a prescription for the missus over the weekend and they made me wait.

So I found a chair and completely reclined and it was also a sofa chair so I was also in full recliner position with half my back on the chair and legs widely spread and shaking to my music slowly.

There was none around me so I wasn’t getting into anyone’s space.

Across the coffee table was a woman who took pics of me. She forgot to turn the flash off.

I confront her and she says “you are manspreading and it makes me uncomfortable”

I’m draped head to toe in navy pants and white Oxford shirt and shoes. It’s not like I was in shorts. I told her i will sue her if she shamed me on social media.

She then says she deals with toxic masculinity every day.... and my name was called coz the prescription was ready.

So share your toxic masculinity experiences 😁

    *IF* I am recalling properly, wasn't Britney Spears toxic, too?

    I feel like there's a conspiracy here but it's JUST OUT OF MY REACH

    Manspreading is actually a problem on crowded public transportation. But so is taking up a seat with your bag/purse/jacket/etc. Manspreading in a single chair though? Nah that's fine as long as we can't see up your shorts :D

    Well having genitalia on the outside of the body will tend to cause a wider sitting spread.....it may be inconvenient to some that look for a reason to complain but hey, blame nature or god or whatever one believes made it that way. Its no more inconvenient in my opinion than having to navigate aisles with womens crossed legs and feet sticking out as trip hazards.....but why complain about it? Sweating that kind of stuff really doesnt interest me.

    If you are wide enough to take up 2 seats on the subway, I have some sympathy. But in rush hour if you are making people stand cause your family jewels need to breathe, then you don't need them.

    Well i agree taking up 2 seats is rude. Thats not necessary. But it aint about breathing, having to have legs open at least a little.....its about pain and discomfort

    Is there some sort of Triggered Dictionary I can buy to keep up with all the pointless things that offend people?

    I've sat next to plenty of overweight women on the bus who take up half my seat. I don't get mad, I say, "well that's probably embarrassing for them" and make due. I wouldn't shame them. Call them out, or anything. Not sure why it's a "mens" thing.
