She Tried Riding The Subway Like A Dude. She Couldn't Believe When People Took Pictures.

If you've ever taken public transportation, you've no doubt encountered "that guy" who refuses to close his legs, thus managing to take up two or even three seats.

She Tried Riding The Subway Like A Dude. She Couldn't Believe When People Took Pictures.

While there's no arguing this is incredibly rude, is there any chance gender plays a part in how "man spreading" is perceived? In the video below, two journalists hop on a New York subway to see what happens when a man and a woman decide to take up too much space.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Kids can innovate, create, and imagine in ways that are fresh and inspiring — when we "allow" them to do so, anyway.

It's not a stretch to say the kids in this video are on the cutting edge. Some of the results he talks about in the video at the bottom are quite impressive.
