Mansplaining is where a man talks down to a woman because he thinks her intellect is inferior. I don’t have an issue with Isler’s gender or ethnicity, and I’m sure she’s at least my equal intellectually. I just was disappointed with her politicized response to a compliment. When you publish on Medium you expect comments, and I have the same Freedom of speech as a female black scientist. As an Astrophysicist she is clearly a highly intelligent person, but her views on Climate Change are obviously outside her area of expertise, and she is just repeating Democrat ideology there.

Finally I don’t see where you get the mistaken notion I need advice from you on what I choose to discuss with her. I’m sure Dr Isler is quite capable of ignoring my comment without your help, but that’s OK: you have freedom of speech too.

I work in IT, Community volunteer interested in Politics, support Capitalism as the best economic system for lifting people out of poverty, Skeptical scientist.
