Annals of feminist BDSM: Female college student wins prize for designing creepy torture chair aimed at forcing men to sit like girls

Laila Laurel, pictured, has created a chair, pictured right, will physically prevents men from taking up too much space and 'manspreading' by forcing their knees together. The female chair, pictured left, allows  woman extra space and to sit more comfortably

And we’re told that “man-hating feminism” is just a myth!

Uh-huh (from the U.K Daily Mail):

A university student has won a national award for designing a chair that stops men from manspreading.

Laila Laurel, 23, created the piece of furniture to stop men from widening their legs and encroaching on other people’s personal space.

Two bits of wood are cleverly positioned on the seat to physically stop whoever is sitting down from moving their legs apart….

She won an award for emerging talent in the design industry called the Belmond Award, which calls for imaginative and cleverly presented ideas.

Speaking about her inspiration, Ms Laurel said: ‘It came from my own experiences of men infringing on my space in public.

‘With my chair set I hoped to draw awareness to the act of sitting for men and women and inspire discussion around this.’

Plus:

Ms Laurel, originally from Norwich, Norfolk, has also made a second seat intended for women which, via a small piece of wood in the middle, encourages sitters to extend their legs wider apart.

As the Daily Mail explains, that wooden block in the “women’s” chair is “strategically placed to make it less attractive to men.”

In other words, Laurel has designed not one but two BDSM chairs aimed at punishing men for being men: They have the choice of sitting girly-girl with knees and ankles forced primly together–or having their male parts jammed against a trapezoidal prism.

I don’t know where Laurel got her furniture-making inspiration, but I suspect it could be this:

The iron chair was especially unique because it relied on the psychological effects rather than physical, unlike many other torture instruments. Physically, this instrument punctures the skin while the person is tied down tightly onto the chair. If they do not cooperate, the person gets tied down tighter, digging the spikes deeper into their flesh.The large hole at the bottom of the seat was made to put coal and fire under to burn the victims lower body parts and slowly roast them alive.

But as feminists are always assuring us, they don’t hate men at all–not one bit.
