Man Spreading….A New Term In Dictionary

on November 27, 2015

I was driving home from work and as usual, my radio is always turned on as background noise. Ha ha!

This time I was tuned into One FM.

I forget the name of the DJs but they were bantering on new words accepted into the Dictionary.

Some of these words were coined by Lady GaGa and other star singers.

I laughed so hard when I heard of this term, “man spreading.”

Man Spreading is defined as one who spreads legs wide apart such that they take up an entire seat meant for more than one.

I never knew of such a term and whenever I see anyone from now on, with limbs akimbo and taking up space, I will zoom in on man spreading! 😂

I suppose woman spreading is out as it is a tad unlady like right?!😃

    Haha! A strange term! I suppose that it will take some time for the meaning to spread, so be careful when using it in a sentence. 😉

  2. Perhaps just a tad un-ladylike – but there are times when it certainly feels good!

    That’s a new one to me. And you’re right – I don’t think women spreading will catch on! 😀

  4. That’s so funny! When I saw the title, I couldn’t figure out if it was going to relate to something peanut-buttery or something dirty. But the real definition is way better. I’m going to have to start using this one…

  7. Haha, they’ve been talking about it for a while in the UK. I suppose it’s one thing men do that women can never get away with… Now I notice it more on the train and just smile and wondered what’s coming next 🙂

  8. What a hilarious term! 😀 It’s my first time hearing that also. Glad you shared a big laugh with us! 😉 😀
