Two men have been arrested in New York for ‘man-spreading’ – the act of taking up too much space on the underground or metro system. The arrests have come to light in a report on the efficacy of ‘broken window’s policing in New York.
Man-spreading came to prominence through a politically correct public-shaming Tumblr campaign which described the practice as “a classic among public assertions of privilege”, although it was the AM New York blog which coined the term in October last year. Breitbart London covered it as well.
That blog notes that taking up more than one seat on the metro is technically illegal under Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) disorderly conduct rules, if doing so interferes with the comfort of other passengers. Passengers caught man-spreading can find themselves in line for a $50 fine, although it is not clear whether any passenger has ever been fined for taking up more room than they need.
