Dem Candidate Attacks Critic for Mansplaining Who Turns Out to Be a Woman

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Democratic congressional candidate attacked a critic for mansplaining to her on Twitter Sunday, only for the critic to reveal that she is also a woman.

Video game developer Brianna Wu is running for Congress in Massachusetts' 8th District, challenging sitting Congressman Stephen F. Lynch in the Democratic primary. Most recently she was the subject of a positive New York Times Magazine profile, "Brianna Wu Wants to Change the Democrats’ Playbook."

Wu, a prominent figure in online social justice advocacy, also maintains an active Twitter profile. She tweeted Sunday night about an incident where a United flight crew would not allow two young women wearing leggings to board.'

When ppl are bigoted...

... they have a tendency to jump to conclusions about others, esp. if the conclusion feeds their prejudices. To be fair, I'd be inclined to assume a person named Quincy is male. However I'd not assume he was "mansplaining" to anyone simply for that reason.
