If she didn't understand what mansplaining is, it isn't mansplaining when correcting her.

[-] NikkiDimes@lemmy.world 17 points 1 day ago

Even if it isn't, she'll perceive it as mansplaining due to her incorrect understanding of the term. Our boy here's damned either way.

How about: Wait, let me illustrate how mansplaining works...

[-] doggle@lemmy.dbzer0.com 44 points 1 day ago

Ask her what she thinks mansplaining is and listen intently to the answer.

I’ve had a rough last couple of hours. Seeing a King Pow meme really helped. Made me actually smile

Here's a lifehack:

  1. Quickly switch your gender to woman.
  2. Womansplain her everything that needs to be explained.
  3. (optional) Undo the gender switch.

Dang, a reply from both, FlyingSquid and TPM within 12 hours. If that's no cause for a dab, IDK what is. ~*dabs*~.

Edit: guys, please stop downvoting and let me be cringe in peace.

Conversation with ex girlfriend:

Her: I just got my car back from the garage. They told me to keep an eye on the tyre wear, but I don't really know what that means or how to do it.

Me: I can show you how to do that if you like?

Her: I don't need you to mansplain things to me! MAN KNOW CAR THING, WOMAN NO DO.

I stopped myself from correcting her interpretation of mansplaining, because it was clear that any man was forbidden from communicating normally with her.

Glad she's an ex now.

"You said you didn't know. But i know. Leave gender out of this."

Why would this not work?

[-] ramenshaman@lemmy.world 105 points 2 days ago

Sounds like you've only dated reasonable people.

I mean, it's a trap and I know that. I still would.

I'm that guy.

One of the biggest and best lessons I've learned is that it's OK for other people to be wrong. There's few situations in personal life where it's necessary to correct or educate others - they'll figure it out eventually.

I have a term also: Fem-terrogating

Are you new here? Where do you work? What do you do for work? Does that pay well? Are you married? Ad infinitum...

I simply answer that I don't want to man-splain things.

[-] alekwithak@lemmy.world 39 points 1 day ago

Man-splaining isn't any man explaining anything, it specifically refers to man's tendency to assume women have very little knowledge and condescension while explaining. You can answer questions???

I do like fem-terrogation though

Bro u just need to say

"Can't say, signed an NDA"

Funds are safu

[-] vrek@programming.dev 39 points 2 days ago

I was taught a long time ago a simple idea ... Men hear a problem and try to solve it...”i don't know x" ok let me teach you" or "I can't get this thing to work" ok let me try if I can.

Women on initial compliant some times just want to know that you know they are struggling. Instead of "let me teach you” you could say "I'm sure you will understand" or "I know it's difficult but you got this".

Yes it varies by person some men prefer the latter and some women prefer the former. As with most things it's up to you to know your partner and what they want...

Girlfriend says something obviously wrong

Tom Hardy as Mad Max in Fury Road, pointing out that something along the road is obviously meant to bait people into stopping.

[-] neuracnu 60 points 2 days ago

You can call out word misuse without necessarily stepping into "mansplaining" territory.

[-] omega_x3@lemmy.world 75 points 2 days ago
[-] Squirrel@thelemmy.club 15 points 1 day ago

But if they don't understand what mansplaining is (and are the type to use the word despite not understanding it), any explanation you offer is likely to be considered "mansplaining."

Lol, my girl doesn’t know the right context for the phrase “gaslighting” and I just have to accept it.
