Is that really misandry though?

It's about not being silent when somebody else is being rude and inconsiderate in public.

I posted it because of the “hit him again” part. Is it 1940s slang for something else (and doesn’t literally ask them to hit the person)? If so I would delete the post.

From context to me, it's a man taking a 'wide stance' on a train and either taking up two seats when he should be considerate of other passengers, or blocking their way so they can't exit the train.

The way women were socialised to be demure, polite etc etc at the time, women weren't able to get off their stops because these oblivious men were blocking them.

So I read that really as encouragement for women to be assertive and actually get off the train at their stop by tapping the man on the arm to get his attention and a response, it's not a call condoning the assault of men.

I think it is the second one (blocking their exit). I get that women were socialised to be very demure, back then, but telling them to hit men still isn’t right. Though you are right that it could just be telling them to tap on the shoulder. Deleting this then.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
