Man tries to explain science to female astrophysicist and it was an astronomical mistake
Is there anything a man isn't willing to mansplain to an unsuspecting woman? Men have tried to explain comedy, literature, and my own body to me. Thanks, dudes, but I've got all those subjects covered.
One mansplainer learned the hard way that these days, women can do anything — even astrophysics. Katie Mack is an astrophysicist/cosmologist and freelance science writer. She knows what she's talking — or rather, tweeting — about. Apparently, someone didn't read her bio.
Honestly climate change scares the heck out of me and it makes me so sad to see what we're losing because of it.— Katie Mack (@Katie Mack) 1471273351.0
The doomed mansplainer enters.
Katie volleys it back and emerges victorious!
@gary4205 I dunno, man, I already went and got a PhD in astrophysics. Seems like more than that would be overkill at this point.— Katie Mack (@Katie Mack) 1471307208.0
Rest in peace, “Gary P Jackson #Conservative." We hardly knew ye, and that's probably a good thing.
