The counterculture to manspreading is being flaunted as a positive and empowering thing across Instagram.

First, let’s slip a mind-numbing unvoluntary comfort response from men into something evil and oppressive to women, then let us counter it with someone we can sell as our own brand. I mean it’s not like we haven’t seen this type of craziness from feminists before. See: EcoSexual Professor Claims Having Sex With Earth Will Save It — Feminism and Liberalism…

The “power stance” pose sees women sitting with their legs spread open in front of the camera and fully clothed we hasten to add.  See what I did there? Man things…

The pose is designed to empower women, as it bucks the tradition of sitting poised with your knees together. It’s also a response to “manspreading”, the practice when men sit with their legs wide apart taking up more than their allocated space — usually on public transport. See: NYT Posts Column From Self-Described Angry, Disapproving Feminist. It’s As Abominable As You’d Guess.

Let’s translate this into what it will actually become. The “feminist manspreading”. A grotesque display of the worst possible kind.

“bryonygordonHere I am WOMANSPREADING all over hump day. Thank you to @esskashoes for sending me these beautiful boots which are heeled but also really freaking comfortable – frankly I had given up on any kind of heel because life’s too short for bunions and aching feet and I’m too clumsy and found myself turning an ankle too often. Anyway @esskashoes sent me these after seeing me get up on stage last week without my heels on. Cos I’m a classy bird. They are shiny *and* comfortable… binning the flats for the time being and giving these a spin. Thank you Instagram universe! 🙏 #womanspreading #comfortableshoes” See: New Feminist Crisis: Sexist ‘Emojis’ are Oppressing Women Everywhere. Yes, Really…

Way to be gross, on purpose.  Thanks but no thanks!
