Welcome to the manspreading subverse!
This subverse focuses on the broad subject of outrage culture (also referred to as "call-out culture" or "social justice warriorism"), a troubling phenomenon that threatens the free expression of ideas and undermines civil discourse. At the broadest level, outrage culture refers to socio-cultural factors that encourage the expression of outrage in place of the calm and rational exchange of ideas. Examples with which you are probably familiar include dogpiling, the rapid escalation of conflict, angry personal attacks, public shaming, and attempting to get people fired for expressing unpopular ideas.
Links and discussion are welcome around the subject of outrage culture, its effects, and what we can do about it. Topics such as political correctness, social justice warriors, and the threat posed by authoritarianism and/or totalitarianism are also welcome.
Public fascination with manspreading appears to have started toward the end of 2014 when feminists using public transportation in New York began complaining about male passengers sitting with their legs too far apart. A Twitter hashtag (#manspreading) was launched and is still used by angry feminists who photograph men's crotches without their consent and post the photos on Twitter in an attempt to publicly shame the men.
I named the subverse "manspreading" because I find it to be one of the best examples of outrage culture today. It clearly exemplifies the punitive nature of outrage culture and the gleeful use of public shaming.
