Mansplaining, arg...

This may or may not be a real problem, but there is a correlary issue. That is to say women who have no idea about something but then say they "they don't need you to mansplain it to them" if one tries to elaborate. I have not had that happen in a professional environment but have seen it in social settings a number of times (involving me once and a couple others).

It is meme that means, "don't listen to men" and I think that is the ultimate goal, shut up- they explained. As the saying goes.

It’s not just between men and women. People, in general, cherish their ignorance.

I’ve, mostly, had women cause issues with being arrogant/acting/speaking above their level of competence, but that’s only been a couple times in over 20 years

All I know is when they claim mansplaining and I say "no, just reducing the ignorance in the bitch population" it doesn't go so well. lol
