I’m a sociologist who has exstensively studied this topic from both an anecdotal and scientific perspective over many years. And although it is theoretical possible, there is close to zero probability that you have spent your entire life having nearly everything you say questioned and disbelieved simply because of your gender — just as you are doing to me right now. I can’t possibly know what I’m talking about……………..

It gets really fucking tiresome! I’m literally an authority on this and yet you claim that when I speak about my area of expertise, I’m acting entitled. That, my friend is mansplaining in a nutshell!

In the other article of mine you read you went off because you claimed there were no citations. Meanwhile, there were multiple quotes and citations throughout, but you were unable to perceive that because you are coming from the perspective that I don’t know what I’m talking about. And why is that? Do you treat everyone that way, or only certain people? Hmm?
