Women Share “The Dumbest Thing” That’s Been Mansplained To Them (48 Tweets)

The term “mansplaining” has come into the common vernacular somewhat recently. Though it’s pretty self-explanatory, Merriam-Webster defines it as “explaining something to a woman in a condescending way that assumes she has no knowledge about the topic.” It’s the assumption that a woman knows nothing about a topic just because of her gender alone.

And many men are guilty of mansplaining. Some of them think they’re just trying to “explain” things without realizing they are condescending, which I think is part of the whole problem. It’s not always intentionally mean.

Twitter user @itsPKav asked, “what’s the dumbest thing that’s ever been mansplained to you?”
