    It doesn’t look like someone who is handicapped was waiting for that seat. Where I live, everyone is allowed to use the seats reserved for handicapped/pregnant people. If you’re using the seat when you don’t actually need it then you are just expected to stand up when someone pregnant or handicapped appears. Is this different in other countries? It sounds weird to force people to leave a perfectly good seat empty just because there is no disabled person around.

    A man walked out with this from that train and had that holy water on his pants, just wondering why everyone’s staring at him.

    Invisible disabilities are a thing. Don’t assume that just because someone doesn’t “look” disabled, that they don’t need that seat.

    My father got sick in Vietnam and it ended up causing him to later be handicapped. Before it really set in during later years, my dad could manage to get around while wearing hidden braces under his jeans. A woman saw him walking and left an ugly note on his vehicle about how he wasn’t handicapped enough and someone else deserved it. My mom told me it really hurt him because of whatever she said. He almost died when he got sick and now he has to deal with his disability. Most days that’s manageable, but it’s harder when people do unnecessary things like that.

    I recognized them. It is a video from Mexico.

    I was once cussed out by an older woman who wanted my spot. There were plenty other people to ask, and I refused. She started shouting and calling me names, I stood up and promptly fell down. My blood pressure was nonexistent, I was in early stages of a difficult pregnancy. Fuck that bitch.

    As someone with a bone disease in my knees, one that doesn’t leave me unable to walk entirely, but makes standing for any length of time (esp on a moving surface!) extremely painful, and can trigger weeks of issues…
    And on behalf of all those with invisible disabilities…

    Fuck that guy.

    Edit: Firstly, thanks for the gold. First time my swearing has EARNED me anything 😛
    I’ve had a lot of replies and PMs from people disagreeing with my stance. I’ve been running through my head all sorts of arguments. But this is exactly the point I want to make…I shouldn’t NEED to. No one already suffering from an invisible illness / disability should be publicly humiliated in such a way, should have to tell some social vigilante of their private health matters to not be harassed. Now, true, many people won’t mind, may even see it as an opportunity to educate people on invisible conditions. But there are also plenty of people like me, who are not comfortable doing that, who suffer from anxiety or similar. For me, being the center of this situation, no matter the outcome (even without my condition), would be one of the worst moments of my life, I would be a mental mess for months after, and I would never be able to use public transport again. It would be a literal nightmare come to life.
    Yes, people need to be more courteous and understanding with preferential seating. But this is NOT the answer.

    I just don’t find this funny. I just imagine my anti-social ass in this position, possibly not even having seen the woman, being shamed out of my seat by a stranger pretending to be Jesus. Then I’d feel like a dick, and I’d be super embarrassed because everyone on the train would know I exist. I’d still be glad the seat went to someone who needed it, though. I actually do have an invisible disability, too. So unless this guy could actually make my kidneys grow back so I don’t have to do dialysis anymore, then yeah. He’s a dick.

    I once had to publicly shame an asshole like this. I was on chemo and had an infusion pump connected via a port on my chest. I decided my sons graduation was important enough to go out in public anyway.

    So we get to the place where the event was happening and everyone was waiting outside standing. Huge crowd. I simply could not stand in the heat for the 40 min until the doors opened so I went up to the front and explained my situation to an usher and asked if I could sit inside. So the guy opens the door to let me in and some ass starts yelling at me and I turned around and said I would be happy to switch places with him if he wanted to have my cancer and do my chemo treatments.

    Needless to say he shut up quickly.

    So all of that is really just a long way of saying you never know what someone else is going through. Never assume. If there was a handicapped or elderly person who needed the seat then you ask nicely. If not shut up.

    (edit: user should have been usher)

    This is fucked up though. My wife has MS, which is something you rarely notice while looking at a person because it is not visible. She has to sit while on public transportation. Someone needs to give this guy a punch in the face.

    I dont like this.. anyone can be tired, anyone can have an invisible disability, anyone can be feeling sick.. I would much prefer if the people in need of seating, anyone, not just visibly disabled, would just ask for a seat and not be a jerk about it. “Hey man, I am not feeling so good, can you let me sit, please?”

    Ughh, I have been in multiple situation where some third party “hero” is trying to bring justice in the world or, at least, the buss when I didnt instantly get up from my non-special seat when someone visibly in need got in the buss. Often times the “visibly in need” do not even want my seat when I offer because they will be getting out the next stop or smth.

    Stop spreading hate, guys.

    This is in Mexico City, and that guy (Arturo) is the head of a Facebook page and organization called “Supercivicos”, that’s focused on teaching people their civic duties and rights through intimidation and shame and sometimes humor. This guy has been arrested and is constantly getting in trouble for doing lots of “crazy things” like telling people they can’t use a parking spot, or defending the rights of bicycli…sts (I don’t know)

    It has a lot of success here in CDMX, but is also really focused on upper and middle class people, so it kinda misses the point when 50% of the people in Mexico city, and most of the people that really need this kind of education does even have a cell phone or the data plan to watch him doing live feeds.

    There’s no humor here. All I see is a deranged person sprinkling water on people and touching people that clearly did not want to be touched. Imagine if he did that to a woman. He’s just being a bully under the guise of helping people. When you dress up like this specifically for the reason of going out and doing this, it’s definitely not about helping people and more about getting your power trip bullying people to do things your way.

    i’ve unfortunately gotten the “hey asshole” treatment on public transit, though not quite as brutally as this. My cane broke while i was out so i had to limp home without support. Of course that was the ONE time i didn’t *look* disabled.

    Due to a work place incident I’ve messed up my leg, I’ve asked for a seat before and people look at me like i’m committing a crime. I’ve been asked for proof of injury which is easy but embarrassing to show.
    I’ve just given up and now lean against the door or a pole or whatever I can.

    I never like to assume that people are dicks, even though most of the time they probably are.

    One time some dbag in a suit asked me to let a lady sit down in my seat with some passive aggressive remark and I lifted up my pant leg to expose a bandaged knee following surgery. I didn’t kick up a fuss, I just said “my knee really hurts when I stand” and he kind of rolled his eyes like I was deliberately inconveniencing him.

    Any way, it’s just bad to assume things in the off-chance you don’t understand or have misjudged the circumstances.

    Love making “prank” videos but you always end up being punched in the face?

    Tried calling it a “social experiment” but nobody buys that anymore?

    Well now you can just find some small social norm and go enforce them in contexts where they are absolutely not needed.

    You get to be a total asshole on camera and nobody can call you out on that.

    Those seats are not just for the elderly and you can’t look at someone and say that they’re fine and don’t deserve the seat.

    This isn’t even funny honestly. Once you get a seat on the NYC subway it’s yours. People will give them up to elderly or pregnant or children but otherwise they don’t get up.
