No new posts on this board for 5 weeks. Does this mean everything is great and we ended mansplaining for good? 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Mid-level Account girl emailed me a copy of my own form ‘for reference'. Like a Business Manager doesn’t know what a talent completion report is. Really?! 🤦♀️
Vendor asked for closed caption files for a vid, but before sending I wanted to confirm where the vid would be to need them (for usage rights). He proceeded to then explain how captioning works.
“First of all, you’re wrong. And you’re mansplaining.” - Me “Well yeah I guess you could say that in the sense that I’m a man and I’m explaining something to you." - Male Account Exec (More below)
Got a good eye roll out of this interview. Another good ol’ boy group relying on the “it’s just how the industry is” excuse https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/05/23/arts/television/arrested-development-netflix-interview-jeffrey-tambor.html
I got mansplained twice in a meeting today and another guy actually said, “yeah, like *man* said a minute ago....”. I SAID THAT 30 SECONDS BEFORE HE DID, IDIOT.
I was giving a short presentation about my experience at the Women’s March last year, and my male CD interrupted me to explain what the Women’s March was.
“By establishing shot I meant wide shot” This is wide. “Wider than that. To establish the scene” You didn’t shoot that “We need to establish the scene” With something you shot, or something imaginary?
Today I watched our creative director explain to our medical director how an MRI works. I had to pay close attention to my face to keep my jaw from hitting the floor. She literally has a PhD in this!
3rd week on the job, a guy 2 levels below me came into my office and started the conversation with "let me lend you a piece of advice...". As expected, it was not useful advice, he was just a douche.
Colleague said “oh hello, who the fuck are you?” When I brought up what I guess was an unwanted opinion. This was years ago when I was more junior.
I got reprimanded by a man for having an uninspired point of view of a conference call. He then gave me his inspired POV...which was exactly the same. When I pointed that out he said, “huh. Maybe.”
Male colleague sent me a link on how to storyboard. Reminded him of my title and my undergrad was significantly video-related.
Producer just splained to female director how shooting boards work. I was busy trying to open window for jumping-out-of purposes.
