Another Thing That's Really Wrong With Sweden: Its "Mansplaining" Hotline

This is what happens when "progressives" are allowed to run things (and in the larger scheme, it's tiny taters next to, say, how Premier Kathleen Wynne and her scheming minions are transforming Ontario into the Greece--debt-wise, not weather-wise--of North America):
A Swedish union has set up a hotline for workers to report instances of “mansplaining” as part of a weeklong effort to raise awareness of a certain kind of condescending elocution that men use to explain to women things they already understand. 
Well, actually, it’s not all men who do it, of course, but a certain kind of man. You know him: He is probably getting ready to mansplain this article to you. 
The hotline, which is temporary and open to men and women, was set up by Unionen, a trade union that represents about 600,000 private-sector employees in Sweden and describes itself as the largest white-collar union in the world. 
“Our objective is to contribute to awareness and start a discussion which we hope will be the first step in changing the way we treat each other and talk about each other in the workplace,” Jennie Zetterström, a union spokeswoman, said in an email on Wednesday. 
“It’s important to create awareness about how seemingly small things that we do or say add up to a larger issue.”...
Better they should have a "progressivesplaining" hotline to account for such asininity.
