It’s amazing how upset the guys get when mansplaining something and you tell them to STFU. I got blocked by a relative when I did that. Oddly enough, I don’t care.
You care. You bothered to create a thread about it.
DId you literally tell them to “shut the fuck up,” in so many words? Yeah, I can see how that might upset somebody.
Done in one.
Yah, there’s potentially a discussion to be had about the extent to which some men overreact to being disagreed with or ignored because their conception of masculinity includes being naturally entitled to lay down the law about stuff. But this thread ain’t it.
And I bet everyone who posted, except possibly Andros is a man who wants to explain to the poor little woman how wrong she is. They can STFU.
catlfea12, I don’t think you understand what mansplaining is. See, it’s when a man explains to someone else, typically a woman, in a manger regarded as condescending or patronizing.
Well, actually, it’s “manner”.
What’s the point? It’s like explaining WiFi to my cat.
And what the hell are you doing on a message board. You mean there’s NO housework to be done?!
Where does a mansplainer get his water?
From a well, actually
Of course I do, why do you think I used that term? My relative likes to pontificate about various topics, that’s why I told him to STFU.
Wrong on both counts, AFAICT.
Well, actually “manger” is still correct. See, the first mansplainer was Jesus Christ.
And for those who don’t know what pontificate means, one of the definitions is to speak in a pompous or dogmatic manner.
Does your relative come to your house and physically force you to read his posts?
Since when is that a necessary condition for being allowed to tell somebody to STFU?
Conversation, even on public social media, is a two-way street: A can say something B thinks A shouldn’t have said, and B can say “Shut up” to A.
Thank you, kimstu. Manson1972, STFU
Who said it was a necessary condition? I was simply asking a question.
