A woman shared a perfect example of mansplaining and things got out of control

I think I shared it because it made me laugh. It felt like the most succinct example of a conversation I have everyday. Working in a pub people (and I mean men really) assume that you’re less intelligent than them and also that they have the right to monopolise your time. This particular man had taken it upon himself to ‘educate’ me on a whole host of topics that he didn’t know anything about before we had this exchange.

She added:

The comments section is a perfect mess. Particularly the men who have tried to helpfully explain the situation back to me without understanding it at all. Many people have taken issue with the fact I’ve used the term mansplain. But in my experience I do find it an exclusively male behaviour.


Heh. One wonders - what is worse, mansplaining or manspreading?
