Kamala Harris Saying 'I'm Speaking' Should Be Every Woman When A F*ckboy Tries To Mansplain

Thankfully most of us are fully aware when a guy is mansplaining something to you. In case you don't know what mansplaining is, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as "explaining something to a woman in a condescending way that assumes she has no knowledge about the topic."

In any case, Kamala Harris made us all very proud during the vice presidential debate when Mike Pence was spewing gibberish while she was eloquently speaking. Kamala replied to Mike's disrespectful interruptions with a simple "I'm speaking," and honestly, we should take notes.

Ladies, it is as simple as that to get back your voice the next time a guy tries to interrupt you and mansplain something. Need other options? Here are 11 phrases you can use when trying to clap back at mansplainers — whether you're on a date or elsewhere.

1. I'm speaking.

2. That's what I just said.

3. Thanks for explaining, I'm aware.

4. Are you done stroking your ego?

5. I'm not finished talking.

6. Your interruption is not needed.

7. That's inappropriate.

8. That won't be necessary.

9. Unless you treat me as an equal, this isn't going to work.

10. Being condescending won't help you.

11. I don't need you to explain my own thoughts to me.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
