Things you shouldn't do while riding public transportation. Read More »

British journalist Bim Adewunmi has been in New York for the last few weeks and apparently taking the subway has driven her insane. Writing in The Guardian, she expresses the feeling in the most colorful way possible:

“Think of a book with an opening scene set in a village in rural England. There’s a winding country lane, and in the distance can be heard the relentlessly tuneful whistle of a milkman, and the gentle moo of a cow. Yes, there are still milkmen and there are still cows, but look closer: the cows are wearing smart white coats and jaunty little hats, delivering milk extracted from humans. Terrifying image, isn’t it?”

Everything about her description of the MTA is glorious. Some more highlights: Keep reading »

I’m sure by now that everyone has seen Men Taking Up Too Much Space On the Train, a genius Tumblr that more than adequately demonstrates the fact that we teach women to take up as little space as possible and teach the opposite to men. The blog draws regular ire from dudes, and the person (woman? I don’t know) who curates the blog is happy to just rip apart their responses, so good luck with that, guys. The most common excuse guys give is “We sit that way because we have dicks.” Ironically, I’m pretty sure that “because we have dicks” is the basic justification that’s been used an immeasurable number of times over history to do things like deny women the right to vote or own land or have autonomy over our own bodies, harass us in public all the fucking time, and block us from adequate and equal access to healthcare, but WHATEVS. Another thing people like to do with this Tumblr is write in to mock the blog by saying things like “Oh yeah you’re so oppressed because guys are taking up a lot of space on the train,” which kind of completely misses the point. So I feel like it’s my duty to say here that the point is that we teach men and women to dignify their bodies differently, and that’s worth questioning.

That being said. Keep reading »

Twerking On The Subway Tracks Is So Hot Right Now

Twerk It!

Watch Out For Rats

Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus. Anyone can hump Robin Thicke’s Beetlejuice costume on a stage full of people. But it takes real cojones — and, um, possibly a death wish — to jump down on the tracks of the New York City subway system and twerk on the rails. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDDIES. Don’t want to drop too low and hit that third rail. [Gothamist]

Cosmopolitan Blogger Anna Breslaw Masturbated On The Subway

All the jokes about going downtown just write themselves, don’t they?

When a man masturbates in public, it’s creepy and it’s criminal and women feel at best grossed out and at worst violated. When  a woman masturbates in public, it’s …. a really funny article for Cosmoplitan? Keep reading »

Ask the average subway-riding woman what her number one public transportation pet peeve is and chances are good she’ll say, “Men taking up too much room because they seem to think they’ve got watermelons for testicles” or something to that effect. Yes, men who sit with their legs spread wide like they’re holding a yoga ball between their knees are everywhere. Including Westeros! I was clicking around a new Tumblr blog called Men Taking Up Too Much Space On The Train and stumbled upon this familiar face — it’s Robb Stark from “Game of Thrones”! Just look at actor Richard Madden sitting on the London tube like its the Iron Throne, his mighty manhood requiring so much excess room that the person to his left is seemingly forced to sit on the edge of his seat. Please. Everyone knows it’s little sister Arya who has the biggest balls in the Stark family. [Men Taking Up Too Much Space On The Train]

subway etiquette poster

You’d think that it’d be pretty obvious: clipping your nails in a public place, especially a crowded subway car, is a bad idea. Not just a bad idea, but also a very unhygienic one. And yet! People still feel totally comfortable doing things they should probably only ever do in the privacy of their own homes, under the veil of anonymity on public transportation. Some fed-up soul put up this subway etiquette poster reminding commuters that, no, clipping your rotting toenails is not appropriate public transportation behavior. As the sign notes, “it’s crazy that this even has to be mentioned,” and yet, unfortunately, it really does. [Twitter]
