I have been full of feminist rage today (although, admittedly, this is a pretty normal state for me).

Specifically: I am thoroughly fed up of men coming into women’s spaces and trying to tell us what to do / how to do things; then when we object, getting all butthurt and saying fauxpolagetic crap along the lines of: 

“I’m sorry you feel that way”

or

“Your reaction to this shows you have some deep-seated issues”

I am pretty used to getting that sort of thing via my day job (in IT), but when a bloke comes into a women’s strength training group and says it, it makes me quite ragey. 

Combine the mansplaining with copious images of women’s butts (you know, to show us how sexy we can be if we squat) and it’s an explosive mixture.
