The entitled male is hard to shut up. Recent displays of infuriating "manterrupting" illustrate how tough it can be to manage the problem. CBS News journalist Lesley Stahl, in her "60 Minutes" interview Sunday with President Donald Trump, was interrupted, talked over, instructed and lectured about how to speak. Despite - or perhaps because of - her unrattled persistence, Trump finally cut her off completely and walked out of the interview early.
As every woman who has sat seething through a meeting knows, "manterrupting" is real. Social science studies suggest that men interrupt women 33 percent more than they interrupt other men.
Getting men to stop is notoriously tricky. Many are oblivious of or don't understand the impact of their actions. Manterrupters, studies show, start their careers early: Boys at age 4 are already interrupting girls in play situations.
Fortunately, cultural norms can change. Challenges to traditional patriarchy and outdated workplace behavior, like the #MeToo movement, are already shifting notions of what is acceptable. Lesley Stahl has been a respected journalist for 50 years. Which means she likely knows better than anyone else that gaining a seat at the table doesn't mean much if you can't be heard over the din.

Not as bad a phenomenon as “bitcherating.”
How about "she was constantly corrected."?
Let’s be honest. America has a problem with self-righteous, hateful, liberal women.
Gee another expert demonstrating her profound ignorance and bias.
What feminism always seems to feature as a heroine is not a confident woman of actual importance like Queen Isabel of Spain, but a damsel in distress.
Liberals get interrupted 33% more because what they say is 100% BS.
The only way these liberal self righteous women can control men....they think
The purpose of an interview is to listen to what someone has to say.
I’m not certain what sort of interviewer would consider their subject speaking to be “interrupting”.
So is the female who demands to be treated equal and then retreats to her corner in tears when she's buffeted around like the guys.
Shut up Lynn. Go make me a samich.
What a dyslexic cunning runt.
I just *love* being womansplained to.
This member of the Trained Women’s Assault Team must be channelling Crazy Hirono. She just Can’t understand Normal Thinking.
As every woman who has sat seething through a meeting knows, “manterrupting” is real.
As every man who has sat silently through a non-stop barrage of woman-say-nothing-important one-sided opinion “conversation” knows, “shewontshuttheFup” is real.
How about bitch slapping?
Is that allowed anymore, on males as well as females with an ax to grind
So that's what jeffy toobin was doing, and I thought it was manter-baiting.
Oh hell, we all know from here on, it is toobing.
Between toobing and billyj getting lewinskys, it no wonder that chelsea looks like webb hubbell.
Feminism is dead.
Not this crap again....
On second thought Lynn, do the laundry, I’ll make the samich.
