How to shut down a mansplainer (without even smudging your lipstick)

    Thank you Dixie,
    My partner of 15 years does this to me often. Sadly, I normally react rather than respond. However, yesterday, I made an open stand letting him know I was no longer going to be putting up with his s… Going forward, I will be using your cool calm advice if needed. PS Am 57 and post meno 🙂

      Dian, I’m sorry to hear you’ve been subjected to this particular kind of bullying, that sucks. So many of us women have had to be in the receiving end of this for so long. I’ve seen my mother-in-law (and my husband) let my father-in-law and brother-in-law run right over them and they’ve trained themselves to just keep quiet; they’re literally unable to open their mouths, that’s how conditioned they are. I’m so impressed you’re going to speak up. Good for you!! Let me know how it goes. Xo

      P.S. Dian, I’ll be 60 next April, line you, way post-meno.
