DISTRESSED victims of “mansplaining” in the workplace can now report it to a dedicated union hotline.
Swedish women who believe they have fallen to victim to instances of sexist male colleagues explaining things to them in a sarcastic way are being offered advice and support.
Unionen, which represents 600,000 private sector workers, has set the advice line up in a bid to stamp out the scourge of what has been dubbed “mansplaining”.
The hotline will be manned by feminist politicians, comedians and scientists. They will advise angry women what action to take next, The Local reports.
But Swedish men were not amused, taking to the union’s Facebook page to complain about what they called a “sexist” and polarising campaign.

All the women make sure you raise your hand.
These subjects seem to always draw a male crowd.

It seems that this is something only women understand. Men quite often talk down to and overtalk women. Continues to this day. Plus you can't play any team sport with a man because they push the woman away cause they think they are better.
Plus, men try to "fix" every social or emotional issue a woman has just when many times women just want to talk it out-not necessarily need an answer.
This does exist-I like the name-"mansplaining."
Venus and Mars.
I totally get this-except the hotline seems like overkill. Women always share these issues amongst themselves-no need for a national hotline.
