Faith Salie has her contend on "mansplaining"

For all the speak about larger gender equality, it’s still a Man’s World — or so says the Faith Salie: 

If you don’t know what mansplaining is, or manterrupting, or manspread, then you’re substantially a guy.

Here’s mansplaining, when a dude explains something in a pompous manner, customarily to a lady who competence even know some-more than he does:

And manspread?  


Mind the gap! Manspreading on the New York City subway.

It’s gotten so bad that cities like New York and Madrid have resorted to campaigns that actually ask men to stop working as if any of their knees needs its own seat, and their genitals deserve another.

Manspread, mansplaining, manterrupting — all of it, either unwavering or not, diminishes women’s voices, minds and bodies.

Now let’s be clear: not every man who interrupts is a manterrupter. And women explain, women interrupt.

BUT, I’m just gonna womenumerate a few stats for you:

  • Women on the Supreme Court get interrupted 3 times some-more than their male colleagues — that’s not just.
  • In the first 2016 Presidential debate, Hillary Clinton interrupted Donald Trump 11 times, and Trump interrupted her 55 times. 

But who’s counting? 

Mansplaining may be a newish term, but it’s not a new phenomenon.

But here’s since these recently-birthed difference are a good thing: since they name something. And when you name something, you lift consciousness. The review is now on the informative table, and it can't be interrupted, explained away, or squished to the side.
