Do some women enjoy mansplaining?

A lot of things that women claim to hate about men, they may actually enjoy, at least from the right man.

Here is a quote I found on a Tumblr site. I have edited it slightly and not given a reference because I don’t want to lead people into bad parts of the Internet, but here it is:

“Here’s a fun summertime … game for girls … It’s called Mansplainer Roullette. Start by making a short list of men in your life who like to talk and have a tendency to condescend. These can be guys at work, school, who live in your building, work at stores you frequent, etc.

Whenever you bump into one of these hunks, ask him lots of dumb questions that require him to explain things to you. Be particularly thick headed when he tries to teach you, forcing him to simplify multiple times. After a while, these guys will just assume you don’t understand anything and start automatically “mansplaining” any topic that comes up. BONUS! Every time a new man on your list starts treating you this way, you get to buy yourself a gorgeous new pair of shoes …”

I am reluctant to say that men are generally smarter than women, but a lot of women seem attracted to men smarter than they are, perhaps as part of their general hypergamy. Perhaps it is not surprising that mansplaining (or being corrected or lectured at) is attractive from the right man.

  1. Yes. How could this be a bonus to have a man assume you’re an idiot?

    They like the dominance – subordinate interaction.

    Notice how women earn a new pair of shoes for themselves— act like a fool. Work is tough!!

    Isn’t it odd how women are always looking for a superior (they like a guy who is taller, stronger, smarter, makes more money, etc) and then go and demand equality? They don’t even seem conscious about it.

      They want equality with men in general but to feel inferior to their own individual man. It is similar to how they dislike behaviours from men in general that they may relish from the right man.

        “Feel” is the key word here. I’m more interested in reality than how they feel. Their entire world is built on emotion (IOW, sand).
