The only place where reading the comments can actually become productive lol

Haha, there is still fairness in this world.

Typical throughout DL's exercises! DL could stand some diversity training.

Indeed! I am definately detecting a gender bias on Duolingo.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Theo639847

DL knows very well that in marriage it is the opposite.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Theo639847

More mansplaining!

I knew the comments would look like this.

Mansplaining... DL is triggering ;)

Ce sono donne chi ascoltano, si si

He speaks, she interrupts.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ekedin

A rare occurrence

"He speaks, she listens".... 99% sure the guy is mansplaining


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jae633849

For those who care: the best translation I've seen of 'mansplaining' (though not entirely fit for mixed company, you have been warned!) is "minchiarimento" (it is a play on words based on 'minchia', a dick, and 'chiarimento', a clarification). You're welcome! ;)

That's actually very clever word play, love it!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JooAmaral714695

99% sure the female is womanlistening


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/adrihdn

why she hears is not valid?

Have the feminists started an uproar blaming the patriarchy yet?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnilMonga

Opposite is the norm

And she plots his murder

    He can speak but he can't talk. why is that so?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Germanlehrerlsu

    davihrodrigues: your question's unclear. You should clarify what you're asking to make responses more likely.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SerGlendor

    How it should be :^)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aprendizuruguaya

    Usually it's the other way round...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeeAnn761929
