Author's flowchart guide to mansplaining goes viral
I have had more than one male colleague sincerely ask whether a certain behavior is mansplaining. Since apparently this is hard to figure out, I made one of them a chart. pic.twitter.com/7DZ1RTrB3R— Kim Goodwin (@kimgoodwin) July 19, 2018
Why make this a gendered issue? What you are basically defining here is condescending behaviour that can happen in any human interaction, regardless of gender. I take offence at the sexist implication that this is a male oriented behaviour. #shesexist #notallmen #genderequity— Derek Nankivell (@Derek_Nankivell) July 20, 2018
To say that the behaviour is "predominantly gendered" is a bold and unfounded statement! This thread alone is rife with people being condescending towards one another. To base your assertion factually, you would need to accumulate data to support your claim.— MARSH MALLOW (@QueenCaoCao) July 21, 2018
"The label describes the behavior, not the group."— Rory Cornelius (@RoryCorn) July 23, 2018
The label literally begins with the word "man"! Are you actually being serious??? ?!?!?!
I think this happens in both genders. I've had women explain parenting things to me assuming because as I male, I didn't know. Things such as discipline and nutrition.— Patrick (@patrick_fore) July 19, 2018
