Woman Gets Punched In The Face For Asking Man To Stop Manspreading

In New York City, riding the subway is a fact of life for most commuters. Sometimes, however, that means sharing a train with some questionable characters. For instance, Sam Saia was on her way to work when the man next to her began “manspreading,” that much-loathed practice of opening his legs to take up more than his fair share of space.  

Since he was pushing her into the wall, Saia asked the man to stop. He responded by punching her in the face.

After the man attacked her, several bystanders jumped in and confronted him. 

One video shows another passenger holding the assailant’s arms down and demanding he get off at the next stop:

After the incident, Saia attempted to file a report at the New York Police Department’s 17th precinct, but, once there, she was passed off to the Transit District 34 headquarters. The headquarters then told her that filing a report with them would be a waste of time since she could do so at any precinct (confusing), so she decided to take matters into her own hands. 

Saia commented to the Daily News:

I said to myself, ‘OK, I’ll just blow it up on social media. I’m here doing what the police are supposed to do. I just want awareness and I want us to be safe.

People shared Saia’s Facebook post over 1,200 times before it was removed, presumably due to the internal inquiry initiated by the New York Police Department. Her words online have brought widespread awareness to the issue — and connected her with the bystander who took the video.  

On Friday, Saia posted on Facebook:

The internet can be a beautiful thing!

Screenshots Of Women Asking Guys Out On Dates Will Help You Just Go For It

Oloni is a dating blogger with a big following on Twitter and she posed a very difficult challenge to her fans. The Dating Challenge.

All you have to do is be brave enough to ask…

People have answered Oloni’s call and the beating of their own hearts. All they have to do is ask out someone they’re interested in and share the results. This is so scary! We’re a society used to only asking out strangers on dating apps, not humans we meet and see in real life. Oloni is really pushing here.

But a lot of people have been doing it and sharing their screenshots of their successful date attempts. They are so freaking cute:

Though there have been some failures:

Hey, that’s the risk you take when you try to be brave in love! 

And you can always not try.

23 People On Tumblr Who Are Asking The Tough Questions

If you want honesty, comedy, drama, or whatever it is you’re looking for, then you don’t need to look further than real life. Sure, your life may be “boring” but who’s fault is that? Our minds are infinite, and we can come up a billion different ideas, scenarios, games, or just thoughts to dwell on.

And even if for some reason we don’t feel like sitting alone with ourselves, then we’ve got an entire world filled with people to interact with, and the best part: you don’t even need to leave your house to do it. There are plenty of social sites where you can interact with others entire for free and get as weird, introspective, or totally silly as you want.

Or you could just creep on other people’s statuses and see the hilarious stuff they come up with, like these Tumblr users.
