Is there a trendy term that means "stupid biatch making up words for their deeply insightful blog"?

Uh huh.

Look, if you don't want to hear about why the coach is an idiot to attempt a screen on 3rd and 15, then don't watch football with us. Or, learn about football and get a discussion.

If they've got time enough to create words like "mansplaining," well... it tells me there's not enough sammiches bein' made.

Hey look, a second wave feminist! A rare sighting indeed. Shame she makes the third wavers look bad.

Mansplaining is about a very specific instance of "privilege and ignorance... when a dude tells you, a woman, how to do something you already know how to do, or how you are wrong about something you are actually right about, or miscellaneous and inaccurate 'facts' about something you know a hell of a lot more about than he does."

Jezebel columnist Hugo Schwyzer


I didn't realize Hugo was a female name. This was clearly written by someone who has never been asked to load the dishwasher "the right way."

Is mansplaining telling your wife what kind of sandwich you would like?

I'd only heard it used to describe the dialogue of the main character in the TV show The Newsroom, towards the various female characters in that show.
Only watched the first episode but it seemed to make sense in that context. Come, dumb females, let me mansplain this to you.

A condensed example of some mansplaining:
(edits are my own)

[...snip...] "So? I hear you've written a couple of books."

I replied, "Several, actually."

He said, in the way you encourage your friend's seven-year-old to describe flute practice, "And what are they about?"

They were actually about quite a few different things,[...snip...]

He cut me off soon after I mentioned Muybridge. "And have you heard about the very important Muybridge book that came out this year?"

So caught up was I in my assigned role as ingénue that I was perfectly willing to entertain the possibility that another book on the same subject had come out simultaneously and I'd somehow missed it. He was already telling me about the very important book -- with that smug look I know so well in a man holding forth, eyes fixed on the fuzzy far horizon of his own authority.

[...snip...]
So, Mr. Very Important was going on smugly about this book I should have known when Sallie interrupted him to say, "That's her book." Or tried to interrupt him anyway.

But he just continued on his way. She had to say, "That's her book" three or four times before he finally took it in. And then, as if in a nineteenth-century novel, he went ashen. That I was indeed the author of the very important book it turned out he hadn't read, just read about in the New York Times Book Review a few months earlier, so confused the neat categories into which his world was sorted that he was stunned speechless -- for a moment, before he began holding forth again.

Patronizing. The term is patronizing.

2. It's a real thing.

Its not the same. "Patronizing" has other connotations that make it sound more positive. I patronize the grocery store on a regular basis and they like it.

so, apparently you are mansplaining if

1: You are explaining something to a woman and she already knows it.
2: You try and prove that you know what you are talking about and a woman does not agree.
3: You aren't listening.
4: You try and make a general observation about women.
5: The author of the Article is jealous of your penis.


What tripe.

This annoying bullshiat has been popping up in the atheist/skeptical community lately as well. Apparently "feminism" and "social justice" mean "scapegoating white 'cisgendered' males for one's personal inadequacies and creating gender-specific terms (like 'mansplaining') for generic human traits".

It's f*cking dumb and counterproductive. Reading the nascent Atheism Plus forums is an awful experience.
