Spotted: Metro Poster Asking Guys To Stop "Manspreading"

This is not a joke.

We live in a fascinating time. A time where Day Of The Dead costumes are considered offensive, a time where questioning popular opinions makes you intolerant, and a time where "manspreading" is considered sexual harassment. 

In case you are unfamiliar with the term, "manspreading" or "mansitting" is  the practice of sitting in a public transport with your legs wide apart, often covering more than one seat and inadvertently putting your crotch on display for the world to see.

Yesterday, Spotted STM posted a photo of this sign taken in a metro car in Bordeaux asking men to stop "man spreading". But not because it takes up two seats, it's because the makers of this sign believe, "manspreading" is a form of sexual harassment.

So what do you think? Is "manspreading" technically a form of sexual harassment?
