The page states in its summary: "Subjects are embraced and cherished. We celebrate and encourage women eating food on tubes, we do not marginalise them. WWEOT is observational not judgmental. It doesn't intimidate nor bully."

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Director of Enforcement and On-Street Operations Steve Burton has advised passengers:

"If any customer has concerns about such behaviour, believing there may be a sinister motive, they are advised to speak to our staff or the British Transport Police."
