8.

The act of being a man and explaining something to a woman who:

* has a very shallow life which won’t allow her to be depth-minded enough to understand the issue; and

which guarantees she will claim said explanation constitutes an act of condescension against her.

12.

Mansplaining, a portmanteau of ‘Man’ and ‘Explaining’ is a term used to describe the action of a man explaining something to a woman, in a way that they deem sexist and/or condescending. The allegation of Mansplaining can be made by any woman at any time, provided they are ignorant of the double standards of using an insult designed to belittle someone of a particular gender on the basis of a stereotype.

When a man speaks to a woman exactly the same way he speaks to a man: somewhat mockingly, somewhat condescendingly, somewhat confrontationally. Ironically, feminists who champion equality among the sexes, expect men to change how they speak to accommodate their feminine sensibilities.
