Mansplaining

Interesting site: http://mansplained.tumblr.com/

“Academic Men Explain Things to Me
Where women recount their experiences of being mansplained, in academia and elsewhere.”

“In brief, mansplaining doesn’t mean explaining while male; it means explaining while assuming you know more because you’re male. That is why it is different from ordinary condescension, or over-explanation by men to other men, or by women to other women, or by women to men.”
