I’m doing a persuasive speech and this would really help me out.

men always taking up too much space
I’ve been deliberately observing the behavior of people on the trains ever since this kind of thing caught my attention, and honestly.. I don’t see it. I haven’t see a single woman cramped unreasonably between two obliviously inconsiderate, sprawled out men. I see more men giving up their seats, usually to the elderly and to mothers with children, than I do women. I see more men holding the train doors open, so that a straggler can catch the train, than I do women. I see more men apologizing for encroaching on someone else’s personal space on a crowded train.
I have, however, been jostled by women flinging their massive purses around, which is usually followed by a dirty look for my DARING to be smacked by their precious Canal Street MK knockoff. I have seen women let their slew of shopping bags have a seat, while a mom with two kids and a stroller had to stand. I have been nearly impaled through the foot by a woman’s stiletto heels, and been made to feel like the pain was my fault. I’ve never seen a woman hold the door so a stranger could catch the train.
When it comes to men, I see far more examples of chivalry than I do privilege.
I’m not saying this isn’t a thing. I’m just saying.. be realistic. Don’t confuse male privilege with common rudeness. Quit hunting down that ONE photo that proves you’re right. Quit jumping at the chance to be offended and point fingers. Quit blindly latching onto causes just so that you can have SOMETHING to identify with, especially when you have absolutely nothing more than polarizing views to bring to the table. It’s counterproductive, it’s childish, and it’s getting old.
You want to be treated like a woman? Act like one.
Women have been denied the right to vote, treated like property, sold to their spouses, raped every time it was war, misrepresented by entitled old white politicians, been endangered every time they walked somewhere alone at night, denied the right to drive or be anywhere without a man, shamed for showing their faces, shamed for choosing not to show their faces for millennia, and still you think your biggest problem is that someone buys a mug that says “male tears”?
