Once I had a guy patiently try to explain to me that the reason men sit like this is because in the summer it’s very hot and it’s dangerous for them to sit in ways that overheats their testicles. It could cause permanent damage! So, it’s not their fault, not really, that they take up twice as much space as everyone else. They pretty much have to sit like this.
(Won’t someone think of the testicles?)
He seemed a little nonplussed when I wasn’t immediately sympathetic.
Look at that – what a waste of space. Personally, I don’t even think strollers should be allowed on the subway!
