Throughout history, women have faced various forms of discrimination and inequality, and one of the most common and frustrating experiences for many women is the phenomenon known as “mansplaining.” This term refers to the tendency of some men to explain things to women in a condescending or patronizing way, even when the women are already knowledgeable and capable in the subject matter.
This behavior can be seen in many areas of life, from the workplace to social interactions and even online. It can be a source of frustration, annoyance, and even harm to women who feel that their expertise and opinions are not being respected or valued.
Recently, a Tiktok from user danicalifownia touched on this subject.
Danielle Castleberry is a professional brewer who works at one of the oldest breweries in Nevada. So when a customer started “mansplaining” beer to her and saying “not to quit her day job” it was only going to end up embarrassing for him.
“Sometimes I hate being a server because people just think I’m dumb. Like, I’m a dumb, feeble little girl”
“This guy came into my restaurant the other day, and like, without skipping a beat explains to me every single beer on the menu, what it is, and where it’s from, like, I didn’t know.”
“And then he goes as far as to explain the brewing process to me. And I’m like, ‘Yeah, wow, that’s wild’ And he said that they use diatomic earth to filter beers. And also, that nice, juicy sour taste that you get is from lactomycellum. And I was like, I think it’s lactobacillus.”
“And he goes, like cackles ‘Oh, don’t quit your day job. Like, that’s not, I don’t think that’s right, sweetheart.’”
“That’s literally it. I was like, “You’re never gonna believe what my day job is. But I didn’t tell him, I am going to show TikTok what my day job is. This is my day job. I work at the oldest and most award-winning brewery in Nevada, and it is lactobacillus. And it’s not ‘diatomic earth’ it is ‘diatomaceous earth’”
