What is mansplaining?

Do you really know?

What is mansplaining? Thanks for asking!

Have you ever noticed a man explaining something to a woman in a supremely confident way which suggests he absolutely knows more than her about the subject? Well, there’s a term for that, which is mansplaining.

A recent thread on parenting forum Mumsnet invited women to share their worst examples of mansplaining. Among them were patronising explanations of the offside rule, a gas man telling a qualified engineer to wait for her partner to get home so he could tell him how to fix the boiler rather than her and a male doctor telling a pregnant woman not to worry as C-sections aren’t painful!

God yes, guys like that are the worst! How long has mansplaining been around? Why do men do this then? Are they really all that bad? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
