Search - "cookies mansplaining"
Got my dose of mensplaining last night. The guy's a cook, he was telling the whole table about cookies (the web browsing kind). He said among other things that they hide your IP address. I told him they didn't. He said:" yes, they do" and proceded by repeating his explanation again to me personally.
Once again I tried: " Ok, but they don't hide your IP address". Aaaaand... He explained it again :). This time I was getting slightly annoyed, so I said, "Look, I'm a software ingeneer, no, they don't!" and he still didn't want to believe me. The guy sitting next to him chimmed in: " Indeed they do not, and I am also in IT, they don't have to". He was a bit disgruntled, but didn't really continue arguing after that.222
