Gender Mereology Studies #7: Mansplaining


.yingyang3Mansplaining:  The etymology of the term “mansplain” can be traced back to 2008, when the author Rebecca Solnit first proposed the concept.  It was one of New York Time’s Words of the Year in 2010, joined “clickbait,” “douchebaggery” and “side boob” as official new additions to the English language in 2014, the same year that the Macquarie Dictionary made it their word of the year.

The Oxford English Dictionary definition is: to explain something to someone (typically a man to woman) in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.

Sit back and watch a marvellous mansplaining masterclass:
