    I am kind of scratching my head over this. From what I know about “mansplaining”, it is a put down to silence men who are trying to impart information. Abused by enough feminists, it is enough to make men shut up in the company of women.

    Oh, I think men do it. But women don’t necessarily find it unattractive. I have just remembered that a teenage novel, aimed at girls some years ago, and very sweet and natural, had a passage in which the cute boy starts to talk about a carburettor. The girl decides she had better learn a bit about cars, if that is what he wants to talk about.

    The point is that women used to accept and appreciate the masculine didactic style.

    The women quoted above love being condescended to. They find it sexy. What feminists like and what normal women like are not the same.

  3. Seems like this simply a strategy this woman uses to open conversations with guys. The “mansplaining” is just a click-bait tactic

    I can see that. It is a little hard to accommodate feminists. Perhaps, they are best avoided?

      Yes, L, I have not forgotten you. However I am off to hospital tomorrow, so I am a bit distracted. I hope to get to your latest questions soon.

      Best wishes,

  7. It depends on the woman but generally the offensive bit is that the man explaining the thing is giving inaccurate information. While the women is well versed in the correct information. If the man is giving accurate information it’s not actually mansplaining.

    There is an essay by Rebecca Solnit called “Men explain things to me” It explores and analyzes why that particular behavior causes offense. A worthwhile read even if you don’t agree it’s good to hear different perspectives.

      I read a poem by her recently. I thought it was bad as a poem and bad factually. Speaking of misinformation, it repeated the one-in-four women will be raped on an American campus myth.

      Perhaps mansplaining supposedly refers only to inaccurate information but these terms have a way of broadening and spreading their meaning. Sexual harassment originally meant threatening a female employee with loss of her job if she did not provide sex. Now it seems to mean nearly any behaviour a woman dislikes.

      Sexism is another term whose meaning has become so broad as to be almost meaningless.

      Mansplaining is clearly being used as an expression to shut down contributions to a discussion from men. I have seen even strongly liberal men complain that it is being used like this.

      The obvious solution is to avoid speaking to women. This will probably hurt women if only because many studies have shown that men do in fact have greater general knowledge than women. A woman who refuses to listen to male advice on some topics might be foolish not liberated.

        There was a noteworthy case a couple of years ago in which a man supposedly mansplained a technical point to a woman astronaut (trainee astronaut in fact). He was much derided. But he had an arguable point. If even scientific discussion is to be shut down with feminist cant, that is not progress. That is a logical fallacy.

        I understand that Bill Clinton “mansplained” that Hillary should campaign harder in the Rust Belt. It’s a pity from her perspective that she didn’t listen.

      • It’s a blessing from my perspective that Hilliary didn’t listen to her “husband.” :^)
