do you guys remember that one post about how men feel entitled to take up so much space and women have to deal with a lot less?

This is actually a documented thing. You always see men on the subway or tube or whatever using both armrests while women sit with their arms hunched together into their laps. That’s why I always make a point to take up at least one if not both armrests of the tube so men can be uncomfortable for once.

^ again, for all the people telling me posting this picture is complaining too much.

In my college classes (and high school too) guys were always stretching, sticking fists and elbows in my face, leaning their heads back over my desk, over my work, spreading their legs out, kicking my bag with their dirty shoes. And let’s not pretend they were in other guys’ space as much as they were in women’s.

It’s so true, this happens to me every day on the train. Same with the walking thing, women will weave out of the way whereas men just walk straight and plow down anything in their path. I always end up playing chicken with men on the sidewalk now, because I refuse to move out of their way.

I love playing chicken with dudes who hog the sidewalk. BODY CHECK! Fucking assholes.
“NOT ALL MEN ARE LIKE THIS!” FUCK OFF.
“AS A MAN, I THINK THAT…” FUCK OFF.
Men always have the same defensive bullshit to spout every time they get called out on their shit. AND IT IS BORING. They remind me of those toys where you pull a string an they have like 5 phrases they can say. Over and over and over.

same here with playing chicken, its hilarious sometimes because they get this flash of realization in their eyes that says ‘holy shit, she’s NOT going to move/??? what do????’ because THEY ARE SO USED TO EVERYONE MOVING FOR THEM

when i was younger my grandpa drew this on a piece of paper,

and he asked me how i, as the red circle, would get around the two people (black circles) if i was walking down the street.
so of course i came back with

moving out of the way for them as i walked.
he asked me if i thought men would do the same and, at the time, i did because i thought it was just common courtesy. but he told me that men would barrel straight through without giving a shit and that i should do the exact same. because i was the one walking and they were the ones in the way. so that’s exactly what i do.


i find this really fascinating because this actually what defines so-called masculine and feminine traits and gestures. the whole limp-wrist thing? that’s someone decreasing the amount of space they take up by not extending their arm fully. same with crossing one’s legs, how it’s considered more masculine to swing your shoulders when you walk creating a wider gait instead of your hips, how someone who holds their elbows tightly into their torso instead of letting them fall more loosely at their sides is considered feminine.
taking up space is not just a frequent habit of males in our culture, its actually how society thinks masculinity is supposed to be expressed.

It’s also why you can seriously freak people out if you’re a woman by sitting back in your chair and draping your arm over the backrest of the one beside it.
Try it.
It’s claiming space, and more importantly, it’s powerful body language. In primates (including humans), the individual that “opens” its chest—that is, leaves it open to attack—is the most dominant of them, precisely because it shows a confidence that no one WILL attack you.
Look at someone who’s comfortable vs someone who’s uncomfortable—the uncomfortable person will inevitably cross their arms or cover their chest to in an instinct to protect the thoracic cavity.
So, when you want to look HELLA confident, open up your chest and make direct eye contact. It feels weird (for women!) at first, but it’s the fastest way to freak a dude out. They genuinely do not know what to do when a woman displays behaviour they recognize as confident.

If that’s all it takes to freak someone out… you must live with terribly excitable people living boring lives.

Well, it’s not as though they run screaming into the streets, I’m not a fucking scorpion.
But men do become very disconcerted when a woman demonstrates body language that is coded as “masculine”.
For example, a woman who sits with legs splayed and an arm tossed over the back of her chair is interpreted as either aggressively assertive (if conventionally feminine), or “butch” (if not). Either of those possibilities result in a sense of challenge; that’s been demonstrated in the same studies that prove that asking men to perform “feminine” tasks results in increased anxiety and lowered self-esteem.
Humans are animals, and animals are aware of the body language of the others in their species.
As a result, we do pick up on non-verbal communication, and this is one of those subliminal little interactions that really wigs people out.
If you’re a woman and don’t believe me, test it out, and if you’re a man, then thank you for proving my point for me.

on a similar note, taking up too much conversation can freak men out. I tested this with one of my dad’s friends whom usually can sit very quietly and listen to my dad (a biochemist) talk forever (even though it all flies over his head). I tried to talk to him about chemical engineering (as that is what I am studying and he actually asked me to tell him about solar energy) but the second I took longer than one sentence (or maybe it’s that I started discussing a study), he deemed it appropriate to question my knowledge (“well who exactly conducted this study,” as if he would have a reference to begin with seeing as he never graduated high school, and he has never asked my father to cite his knowledge) and subsequently started to interrupt and dismiss me (lol 21 year olds!) with his old white male friend.
what was so fascinating is I’m often told that I take after my dad in terms of my excitability about science but my own dad told me that the way I talked was “arrogant” though the only tone I had was excitement (I get very excited about clean energy). I asked him why his friend thought I sounded like that and he said I was talking over his friend.. whom had been consistently interrupting me to dismiss me and I talked over his interruptions because they were rude.

Fun fact: men believe women monopolize the conversation when we speak 30% of the time. They also see us as “arrogant” for taking up more time than we’re “allotted”. It’s socialization, from as early as kindergarten, and that’s a problem. I had the same thing happen to me this weekend. I research mass disasters, terrorism threats, emergency stuff. That’s MY jam. I want to do it for a living if I can. So the conversation gets onto the topic of Malaysia Air, and everyone’s saying “conspiracy theory! It’s parked in Afghanistan somewhere and they’re being held hostage! How else could there be no radar!?!!?!!?!$&—&/;/”-@/(/$-?!?” And I’ve researched similar plane crashes where planes have gone off radar, and in most cases it’s the result of a catastrophic systems failure. If it happened suddenly—for example, an explosive decompression in the cockpit, or the loss of electrical power, there’d be no chance to register a Pan-Pan or Mayday. Now, I said that and someone was like “well then, smarty, where’s the plane?” And I replied, “at the bottom of the pacific. A steep impact trajectory, especially if the plane was intact, would have ensured that the plane disintegrated. Another possibility is that, flying without radar and communications, the plane veered off their flight path and so came down in an area outside the search grid.” Later, I got in shit for “talking over people”, when I hasn’t done anything of the sort (because that’s rude). But as soon as I was done, they went right back to “it was the scurry brown people’s’ fault”. If you’re young, or female, or both, your opinion, however educated, articulate and well-researched, is worth shit.

As someone with epilepsy this is an important message to share. Thank you bloggers for the heads up.

Three weeks ago, my friend Joe lost his father to a long battle with cancer. Earlier this week, Joe’s mother got in a fatal car accident which resulted in her death. Joe is a senior in high school and most of his money was already going towards paying bills for his family. Unfortunately, now he has no more close family and has the responsibility of paying for the funerals for both of his parents.
I know most of you probably won’t be able to help, but I knew it couldn’t hurt to spread the word. My school and community are trying to come together to raise money to help him out with the funeral expenses.
If there is any chance you are able to make any sort of financial donation to helping him out, please contact me on my personal blog for more information. Something like a $10-20 donation could help tremendously, but please remember that even the smallest amounts (even $1 if that’s all you can do) will be greatly appreciated. 
Even if you can’t donate money, it would be wonderful if you could spread the word. Prayers and positive vibes sent his way could also be a great help. This is a tragic thing for someone at his age to be going through. Please do anything you can to help whether it’s donations, spreading the word, or prayers for him.
