Man-Spreading for the Glory of God
Continuing a cultural phenomenon that views “man-spreading” as a microaggression, a European furniture designer was given a major industry award for crafting a chair that would prevent men from sitting with their legs too far apart.
So-called “man-spreading” is when men, born anatomically different from women, sit with their legs a few inches apart. Feminists have grown to loathe the practice in public places. The war against man-spreading is little more than a war against biology, as men have an anatomical reason not to cross their legs like eunuchs.
In a world where people think men can have babies (or abortions) and women could be born with testicles, liberals and leftists in public transit and other public places don’t understand why men may be prone to sit differently, and it drives progressives crazy that even the way men sit speaks to their biological differences.
The Belmond Award at New Designers in London, a major showcase of work from universities in the United Kingdom, gave the furniture design award to a 23-year-old from Lalia Laurel, who set about to force men to uncomfortably pinch their legs together.
Laurel says the design was inspired by “men infringing upon my space in public.” In the UK, where people are more prone to be corralled into public transit than Americans in their spacious personal automobiles, the issue has become a public debate.
Yes, men are being derided for sitting comfortably. Women, for some reason, don’t understand why they sit that way. Biology class has failed our public school systems.
You can see the chair design below (it’s the one on the right).
Advocates for the design say that if chairs could be designed to have an inward slant, more narrow at the front than back, men would be forced to cram their legs together to avoid the posture you see on the left (above).
Ostensibly, this would make women feel more comfortable. Doubtless, men would be less so.
Laurel claimed that, “the judges were impressed by the feminist slant on the design.”
The Bible is blunt when it comes to the differences between men and women—a difference that anti-science social engineers on the progressive-left refuse to see.
“For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel…” (2 Kings 9:8)
The colloquialism (above) as spoken in the King’s English refers to men and delineates them from women and boys. Men, in other words, do certain bodily functions differently than women. This is an implication of basic human anatomy.
God made men and women differently, and one of those differences requires men to have a few extra inches of breathing room between the legs.
What Third Wave feminists want is to completely ignore the differences between men and women, whether physical, societal, behavioral, or cognitive. What they want is to neuter men.
So resist the matriarchy, men. Refuse to be told you must sit like a woman or boy. Man-spread for the glory of God, and rejoice in the way he made you. They can change the design of chairs, but they can’t change God’s design of human beings.
“Male and female he created them, and he blessed them” (Genesis 5:2).
