Today, I introduced the concept of 'mansplaining' to my husband. Ever since, he's been deliberately mansplaining every single thing to me. All. The. Time. FML

mansplaining is basically when a man explains something (normally to a woman/women) in a condescending & patronising tone. often the term's used when men try & explain female issues to women like they know better

It's when a man "explains" - for lack of a better word - something to a woman based on the assumption that he knows the subject better than her when he doesn't. For instance, if I say women often get harrassed on the street and a man says they're not, it's mansplaning because he can't know better than I do since I am a woman, and I'm often harrased on the street and he is not. The other way around it could me saying that getting hit in the nuts isn't painful. Basically it's when men assume they know better than women simply because they're men.

Originally, mansplaining described the somehow arrogant and condescending way a man explains something to a woman even though she already knows it. However, nowadays it's mainly used as an insult thrown at men after they have explained something to women who have no good comebacks. It's also used by feminists as a standard insult in order to avoid real discussions. Especially femnazis use this word towards everyone including me, and I'm a girl. That's why it has no real meaning anymore.

The actual definition of mansplaining really isn't. Its men explaining female topics to women in a condescending way. Speaking like that is sexist. This is just a term to describe it.
