Was in a lecture taken by a female professor, about studies in music psychology. One of the (male) students asked a question that
a) would have been unnecessary if he’d been listening to the lecturer in the first place and
b) suggested that he (despite being a first year student talking to a professor with years of academic an research experience) knew better than her. In fact, he actually began his question with ‘I’m not trying to say you’re wrong or anything, but…’ and then explained exactly why our lecturer was apparently wrong.

Although said student has a reputation for asking somewhat unnecessary/ridiculous questions in lectures, never once has he tried to suggest to any of our male lecturers that their research may be flawed, or that he knows better than them. A mansplainer if ever I’ve seen one.
