That’s all.

Manspreading or man-sitting is the practice of men sitting in public transport with legs wide apart, thereby covering more than one seat.[1][2] Both this posture and the use of the neologism “manspreading” have occasioned some internet criticism and debates in the US, UK, Turkey, and Canada.[3][4] The public debate began when an anti-manspreading campaign started on the social media website Tumblr in 2013; the term appeared a year later.[5] added the word “manspreading” in August 2015.[6][7] Use of the term has been criticized as “a caricature of feminism” and the practice has been juxtaposed with examples of women taking up excessive space in public spaces with bags.[2][8]
