If this explanation doesn’t clear up the meaning of the word for you, try “asshole” on for size.


There’s an old saying about the word “assume” that simply must be mentioned before tackling the subject of this posting.

That when you do it, you “make an ass out of “u” and “me”.

Well, that pretty much sums up my sentiment about the word “mansplaining”. If there’s a more sexist, patronizing, degrading, disrespectful, non-four-letter, non-curse word in the entire English language, please tell me what it is.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, here’s the definition for mansplaining for your edification: “Mansplaining is a pejorative term meaning ” to comment on or explain something to a woman in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner”.

Now, if the urge to “mansplain” something to a woman ever crosses your feral mind, do yourself a favor and bite your tongue before you say something that reveals the true inner-assholery that exists deep inside the lowermost bowels of the worst version of yourself that you really do not ever want anyone to ever see.

And if you do somehow find that just cannot help yourself and just have to mansplain something to a woman, then do yourself and those of us men who would never stoop so low as to degrade a woman in such an unmanly manner as that and kindly unhand your Man Card immediately.

You don’t deserve to be called a man, let alone manly.

So just kindly hand over your Man Card and excuse yourself from your seat at the Roundtable Of Manliness right now.

We’ve got no room and no use for your kind here.
