Mansplaining Lives (It Matters...)

Have you experienced mansplaining?
Or are you using it as a power-move to capitalise on the #metoo wave?

Hi Blah.
Shouldn't it be "womansplaining" rather than "cuntsplaining"?

Or else in the interest of fairness "mansplaining" should be "bolixsplaining" or "pricksplaining"?

There are some women out there, who love being cunts though.

No chance of being misogynistic that way.

You explain it!
To the next woman who did not ask, if at all possible

I've only ever really experienced it on the internet with the exception of one guy in work who is a twat for it, he's one of these people who you ask a question that only requires a one sentence answer and he'll still be waffling your ear off 15 minutes later about some tangent he went on that no longer has anything to do with the original question although in all fairness he does it just as much to men as he does women so not sure if that counts. As for when it happens on the internet I tend to just find it funny, it's not like I'm insulted by it or anything just gives me a reason take the mick out of them.

I experienced being accused of it before the word even existed, 15 years ago at work, by a female colleague who played the sexism card every time she was wrong.

I had just explained to her the difference between A and B after she mistakingly stating that A needed C in order for B to start.
She played indignation and stated “why are you explaining it to me, I just dais that!”, when she had said something along the line that C needed A and B alike.

Needless to say, her part of the project failed... when C happened after B..,

In all fairness I can see how that could happen Blah, from what I've seen of some of your posts you tend to overexplain things and almost go down a rabbit hole of explanations. I'm not accusing you of mansplaining or anything because I genuinely don't think that is your intent but I can see how some people could mistake it for that.

Me neither but I just find that to be part of his charm, if he wasn't here there'd be a lot less topics to chat about

Have you genuinely encountered people who would give you a black eye for it?
