Manslamming

Arwa Mahdawi has published a joke story on the guardian about the phenomenon of ‘manslamming’ in New York. You can tell it’s a joke because they conflate experiment with anecdote.

Is manslamming a true phenomena? It seems reasonable if manspreading is real. Manspreading sounds like something more testable. It is easy to imagine that collisions on the street are a result of both parties, so it seems more difficult to design an experiment — maybe mass observation would be the way to test this claim.
