Feminist Wins Award For Designing Chair That Prevents ‘Manspreading’

July 16, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

manspreading chair

A British designer has unveiled a piece of furniture that she believes could be the solution to manspreading.

Manspreading occurs when a man sits with his legs spread wide apart in a way that invades the space of others, with women typically bearing the brunt of this practice. Instances of manspreading can frequently be observed on public transport where men can be seen occupying two, or even three, spaces as a result of their wide-legged stance.

According to feminists, manspreading may appear to be an innocuous practice, but is actually a problematic assertion of patriarchal power.

cece telfer

NCAA track star CeCe Telfer racked up a list of records for Franklin Pierce University in women’s college track last month but questions soon arose over Telfer’s athletic history. The runner had been a male athlete just last season before “transitioning” to a woman and joining the female track team only to suddenly become the school’s leading runner.

Telfer was born and raised as a boy called Craig and competed on the men’s team at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire, even though she personally identified as a woman. During 2016 and 2017, she wasn’t in the top 200 male athletes competing in the event.

Things kinda went in the opposite direction though after two colleagues began feeling “became dizzy and shaky and didn’t know why,” and had to be rushed to hospital.

Starbucks Employee Asks Police Officers To Leave Because Customer ‘Did Not Feel Safe’

July 8, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

On Independence Day, six Tempe police officers stopped by the Starbucks at Scottsdale Road and McKellips for coffee. The officers paid for their drinks and stood together having a cup of coffee before their long 4th of July shift. They were approached by a barista, who knew one of the officers by name, because he is a regular at that location. The barista said that a customer “did not feel safe” because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave.

Disappointed, the officers did in fact leave.

This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.

We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.
