PAPA KNOWS BEST
Check how the woman is sitting in the pic of the guys on the subway. The problem isn’t that we are policing how men sit, the problem is that men have no problem taking up space (next time you’re in a theater, check what happens when someone makes their way down a row to a seat. Women usually automatically pull their legs back, men often have to be asked).
BTW, the twitter the subway pic is from characterized it as “NYC, Rush Hour.” Good chance SOMEONE didn’t get a seat because those guys needed to keep their testicles aired.

Don’t people generally choose gyms based on convenience, price, classes/facilities offered, etc. Also, what if you change gyms and there are guys telling you you’re doing it wrong (when you’re NOT) at the other one?
