Manspreading is the term given to a wide spread of the legs which encroaches on other members of the public's space. This is a particular issue on public transport, where this thoughtless and antisocial behaviour invades personal space, gives rise to unwanted physical contact and leads to unnecessary animosity between passengers. This activity has been banned in other cities, such as Madrid with beneficial results. By banning this unnecessary leg gappage, people can get back their personal space on public transport. Moreover, it will eliminate another behaviour undertaken by some males which is causing growing rifts between the sexes.
