Earlier today I saw a comment in a thread that "just because you have a PhD doesn't mean you are an expert on [subject of PhD] " and I had to physically restrain myself from replying "Bitch, that is EXACTLY what it means"
I could see it in the context of "your academic understanding of my lived experience is not equivalent to having my lived experience", like psychs who talk over autistic folks to insist autistic lives aren't worth living, but I'm assuming this is more like. Antivaxxer shenanigans. Or that ocean cleanup project that every marine biologist has unilaterally declared more damaging than just leaving the floating plastic would be.
@polyplacophora Climate Scientist being dismissed for actual climate science in this case. Like "just because you have a PhD doesn't mean you know what you are talking about with climate change being man-made" kind of thing
