Kinda glad I don't live and work in tech in England because based on the design conference I attended. It feels like the guys here are even worse at mansplaining and microaggressive sexism than in the USA, lol.

Obviously NaN generalizations, but I think the conversations and awareness are further along in the USA. I had to explain why spaces only for marginalized people can be useful, and describe stereotype threat. Happy to be that person with credibility, but I was also like... lol Google pls

@cattsmall oh man that sucks what were people mansplaining to you?

@jag a guy mansplained papadums, the Indian dish, to me. AFTER I googled it and said "oh, the crunchy thing they give you before your meal. I have had it all the time but never knew what it was called." He literally explained the exact same thing to me several minutes later, as if he was not listening to me at all. πŸ™„
