    Mansplaining needs to be dropped from the world’s lexicon.

    That building is way too small for the inventory it should hold. The archives alone would require 60,000 square feet of warehouse space for digitized history.

    Carl is not going to make any money with this venture. I think “mansplaining” is dispensed for free. All you have to do it be there within ear shot and you’ll get an earful.

    My wife asks me a question. I answer it. She doesn’t understand the answer. I explain it in slightly simpler terms. She doesn’t get that. When I try a third way, suddenly I am mansplaining. I’ve simply given up answering questions.

    Those who are familiar with “Cul de Sac” or “Richard’s Poor Almanac” are probably aware that the tendency to lecture children is known as Paternal Explanatory Syndrome or, more formally, Drivelalia Factosis.

    Women will never find this place because

    a) it is not on the map (which they don’t use anyway), and

    b) there is no rock, tree or other landmark where they can make the turn

    While Googleing the definition of mansplaining, I stumbled upon correctile dysfunction.

    Are you suffering from correctile dysfunction?

    To me, mansplaining is usually explaining how to do something I already know how to do and have been doing it quite well for a long time. It’s especially egregious when a man tells a woman she should read a book she’s written, or a guy tells a woman that she could stop menstruating when he wants sex if she wanted to.

    Mr. Snoots.

    Although ‘mansplain’ is definitely gendered, I don’t agree it is sexist. When I think of the word ‘sexist’, I think of a person. When I think of the word ‘mansplain’, I think of a behavior. The word is gendered because by definition it is behavior we men do to women. When done to another man, existing words like ‘boorish’ usually suffice. IMO ‘mansplain’ adds the extra implication that a partial motivation is the man’s need to show off or feel superior to the woman.

    So yes, the very definition of ‘mansplain’ is gendered. But gendered speech is not inherently sexist. You probably think it is unfair there is such a word without an oppostite-gendered counterpart, but as others have noted, the behavior is nowhere near as prevalent in women, so a word for it would just sound like revenge, and it would probably be extremely awkward as well, as seen by the examples in previous posts.

    But console yourself that, though ‘mansplain’ is derogatory, it is not vicious or nasty, unlike most words used to describe women’s behavior (see above posts for many examples).

    That said, I agree it has been over-used and misapplied at times, like all excellent and useful neologisms. People will be people.

    I’m a 65 yo white man. I accept the existence of derogatory value-added words like ‘boomer’ and ‘mansplain’ because they communicate something meaningful besides insult. Rejecting perfectly good words, correctly applied, will only make you seem temperamental.
