As a highly intelligent and knowledgeable individual, I am well-versed in the art of “mansplaining”. You’re probably unfamiliar with this concept so I’ll explain. mansplaining refers to the act of a man explaining something to a woman in a condescending and patronizing manner, assuming that she knows less about the subject matter than he does.
Now, some may argue that this is a form of sexism and a way for men to assert their dominance over women. But as someone who engages in mansplaining on a regular basis, I can assure you that this is not the case.
You see, when men mansplain, it’s not because we think women are stupid. It’s simply because we want to help. We see a woman struggling to understand something, and we feel compelled to step in and explain it to her in a way that she can understand.
Of course, we understand that women are perfectly capable of understanding complex concepts on their own. But sometimes, they just need a man to break it down for them in simple terms.
Now, some may argue that this is insulting and condescending. But we would argue that it’s actually a sign of respect. We respect women enough to know that they can handle complex concepts, but we also respect them enough to want to help them when they’re struggling.
So the next time you see a man mansplaining to a woman, don’t be quick to judge. He’s not doing it because he thinks she’s stupid. He’s doing it because he cares.
