Nate Silver just discovered mansplaining
On this day we congratulate Nate Silver, who has discovered that it is frustrating when a man explains your own area of expertise to you.
On Sunday, the FiveThirtyEight editor-in-chief logged on to complain about “dudes (it’s almost *always* dudes) who spend 15 minutes on something you’ve been studying for 10+ years and act like they’ve solved Fermat’s Last Theorem.”
And the women of Twitter said, “yup.”
You’ve just described being a woman in a tweet.
