Manspreading is taking over New York’s subway system–men hogging two seats by  widely spreading their legs.

But according to “The Daily Show” correspondent Kristen Schaal, it’s justified. “Men make 30 percent more than women, they should have 30 percent more space on the ride to work,” Schaal says, telling Jon Stewart: “You’ve been so brainwashed by this feminized world, you can’t even see everything that men have lost.”

The best part is when she talks directly to Stewart’s balls to remind them that they have lost the freedom once inherent to all men. Oh the horror of modern commuting. And pants.
