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."
Of course, women being condescended to by men is a scientifically proven phenomenon, while Silver being condescended to is simply a standalone experience. But a little more empathy from men in the public eye is never a bad thing. (Nate, you get this whole thing now, right? Right? Oh, god.)
Now, back to worrying about the midterms.
