The interruption isn’t sexist. The interruption + recap is what’s sexist.
I haven’t seen examples of men interrupting each other and then restating each other’s points. Doing so would be degrading to the man, because it is claiming ownership of another person “s idea.
Men wouldn’t accept that.
Interruption in itself, or talking over people, shows that you want to move a conversation forward. I’m guilty of doing this a lot and it’s considered “rude” among my female friends, but the men I talk to don’t even notice.
