Than you for this blog, I go on buses 3 times a day, and I have never incountered a man taking up space that wasn't in his seat or felt 'threatened', sure they spread their legs but either they do it within their seat or they put one leg slightly out of the seat into the aisle. Girls on my bus take up way more space with bags and never give up seats to elderly/pregnant/disabled, it's always the boys who do it! Once I was actually being creept on by this guy and another man comforted/helped me!
Thank you for the support, but I’d be very surprised if there were never any selfish guys on your bus, too. Maybe you’ve just been lucky? Either way, both guys and girls can be nice and both guys and girls can be selfish.
