I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

"MANSPREADING" ADDED TO THE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY

It’s official, ya’ll. “Manspreading” isn’t just a slang term for an obnoxious phenomenon that happens on crowded subways anymore. It’s officially a word.

The venerable Oxford English Dictionary just issued its quarterly update of new words that have gained enough widespread use in the English language to merit being added to its ever-growing database, and “manspreading” made the cut.

The official definition of “manspreading” is as follows:

manspreading
man·spread·ing/?man?sprediNG/

informal
The practice whereby a man, especially one traveling on public transportation, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seats: 

a campaign to discourage manspreading or using an adjacent seat as a footrest

As frustrating as manspreading can sometimes be, we’ve always kinda had a thing for it. There’s something sorta sexy about a dude showing off his wide stance in public, which is why we started the weekly tradition “Manspread Monday” on our Instagram page.

To celebrate this latest induction into the dictionary, we thought we’d do a quick roundup of some of our favorite manspreads.
