Ladies, What's The Most Ridiculous Thing Someone Has "Mansplained" To You?

It happens to the best of us.

If you identify as a woman, chances are you've had something "mansplained" to you.


Merriam-Webster loosely defines mansplaining as, "What occurs when a man talks condescendingly to someone (especially a woman) about something he has incomplete knowledge of, with the mistaken assumption that he knows more about it than the person he's talking to does."

So ladies, we'd like to know: what's the most ridiculous thing you've had someone mansplain to you?


Maybe they tried to explain your own joke to you.

Maybe they implied you were wrong about a certain topic when you literally wrote the book on the matter.

Or maybe they tried to school you on something you definitely, without a doubt, knew WAY more intimately than they ever could.
