        Who knows, my uni has a math help room type thing with a bunch of tutors, most of them are undergrads so I would have zero idea who's a PHD student.
        Though if it's office hours for the class it's pretty dumb to ask if they've even taken it.

      >im in grad school and the world needs to know

      This shit blows my mind, and I get a similar vibe from a lot of lefty grad school Twitter. I'm in grad school too - for mathematics (studying ramsey theory, graph theory, network science, etc.) - and I one level I feel proud, and I feel like I accomplished a lot getting into grad school, and it's cool to be entering the mathematical community as a young aspiring scholar. At the same time though, I sometimes feel self-conscious in certain respects. I certainly don't feel the need to advertise myself on Twitter as le STEM PhD intellectual, or make it the heart of my identity like a lot of woke STEM academic Twitter community. And honestly, on some level I feel mildly embarrassed when I tell people that I'm a grad student. It's sounds very pompous, especially knowing how highly the scientific comunity thinks of itself, especially in neolib circle.
      I just feel weird talking to like an actual working adult. It's like "What do you do anon?".
      "O-oh. I don't actually work, and I have never worked in my life, and most of the people I interact with on a daily basis have never worked either. You see, we're STEM grad students. Basically, real life superheros in training. I don't have time to engage in blue collar labor or to waste time on the preoccupations of day to day life. You see, I'm an intellectual, and my time is devoted to the study of science. One day I'm going to get a job at Google, the CIA, or Johns Hopkins University, and I'm going to change the world for progress. But for now, I'm just reading textbooks and solving equations and stuff. And no, you should not confuse me with some NEET incel loser. In fact, us grad students are the cream of the crop. The future leaders of America."
      It just feels fake and gay. It's cool if you want to do science, but being a grad student should not be the core of your identity, and you shouldn't think of being an "intellectual" or a "grad student" as a real title or job.

    Women can go to other women for help with math tutoring.

    But any man asking a woman (or a black person) for math help, especially in modern universities, is a clueless retard. Diversity recruitment is absolutely a thing. Blacks and women get in and stay in on lower standards and lower ability, whereas Asians have to work twice as hard to get in.

    For every woman who is moderately average at math there are at least 20 Asians that are superior to her in every way that you ought to be asking for help instead.

    It's a retarded question to ask, and a lot of times young men that feel inadequate like to push people around and bully teachers and classmates. I imagine it was some 18 year old dude bro who though he was being super funny or maybe he was bitter and mad that an older, more talented math student also happened to be a female. There could be a lot of reasons. Either way, you are a retard if you ask a PhD student something like this. He is either the biggest retard to get into college, or he is being intentionally annoying. There is no reason a PhD student should have to deal with this kind of treatment from some edgelord undergrad.

        No shit retard, that is exactly my point. If he was talking to anyone else, like on of his friends, or a male grad student or a male professor, then I can guarantee is tone would not have been "informal". Just because she's a female grad student, doesn't mean she should be treated any differently, and if we're being honest, I think we all know that we're probably talking about some white frat boy type dude who thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

          Confirmed underage or woman. The only people that a college boy is going to go out of his way to respect will be men/women that give an air of power. Not most grad students, male or female.

    I used to work in the admissions office of a university. About a quarter of the people who came in didn't even know if they wanted to apply for undergrad or grad school. The structure of academia isn't something most people give much thought to. The Ph.D. making that tweet is showing a lack of empathy for the freshman, assuming that he knows all about the requirements of her position when there's no good reason why he should. She sounds like the type of person who gets upset if the person bagging her groceries doesn't call her 'doctor'.

    I would have noticed, but written it off as freshmen not knowing what's expected for -all- math students (essentially everyone takes linear algebra, but not everyone takes complex analysis or numerical analysis, for example).
    Also, some undergrads literally don't know what graduate students are. They just have a vague idea that you're someone who helps with classes.
