The ‘Splainies

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.

works at

Director 1 - He basically said that it was a ‘very important moment for women’s voices to be heard’ and randomly added that he ‘followed the protests via Twitter the day of.’ (thanks dude, your trophy’s in the mail.) I wish I had a clever retort in the moment for that first one, but I was so taken aback I just picked back up from where he had interrupted me. I guess it was a hybrid of manterrupting and mansplaining.

@OP It was a two-fer. I wish I could say they were rare. But they usually go hand in hand.

I am so concerned with how things are going for last 2 months. As a person of color, its even more concerning with another white supremacist incharge of this country. Our confidence towards political & justice system is only going down. Where are we heading as a country 😓
