RoyBatty: If a Professor shuts down a student with a term like "mansplaining"...


Then he or she is a dick. Fortunately, that's not what I was suggesting.

I apologize, but it wasn't clear to me what you were suggesting. And Hugo was certainly not talking about classroom behaviors but about the word being used in common culture.

No problem, and I agree with you (on more than just this post). The series of comments I was responding to had deviated from the context of the article, and I was just noting that, if things are legitimately derailing from lecture/material too much, even in a contentious subject, it doesn't serve the purpose of the class. Note my post right above that one :)

when I read the word "mansplain" all I get is "you have a penis so everything you do is wrong."

what am I missing?

Not a heck of a lot. It is a thought-terminating term that feminists use to shut-down men who have the temerity to voice disagreement.

Feminists have a lot of similar euphemisms for disagreement: "backlash", "not getting it", "silencing women" etc. This is because one of their firmest assumptions is that men are de facto wrong while women are de facto right.

If you watch their greasy, oily attempts at argumentation they act as if they're utterly terrified of a fair and honest debate.

I agree: feminists are right to be afraid. Their fear of an honest debate is warranted; you wouldn't believe the number of women who think they're utterly repellent.
