‘When I was seven months pregnant, a guy literally shoved me aside to race past me to the last seat. Spent the next four stops finding various ways of calling him a c*** to his face. He said “Is that how you’ll talk to your kid?” I said “No, because he won’t be a c*** like you”,’ one mother tweeted.
Another wrote: ‘When I was pregs [sic] I asked a manspreader if I could share his bench seat on the bus and he gestured to his wide legs and said, “No”. Like, “Sorry, my b***s need that space”.’
Another said: ‘I told a man when I was eight months pregnant that I was going to give birth on his feet if he didn’t let me sit down on the bus. He got up. And way to go for doing that.’
One posted: ‘When I was about four months pregnant I asked a man if I could have his seat on the train and I felt really sick as I was pregnant. He said “well, you want equality, you can stand” I threw up on him. And his newspaper. And his laptop bag. The look of shock on his face was gratifying.’
And another commented: ‘When I was eight months pregnant, a man on a packed tube asked me to move so he could sit next to his friend. I suspect my glare still gives him nightmares…. and my choice words ring in his ears.’
