    Which means that what? the very act of mansplaining cannot be applied if you are not face-to-face? Because you must be able to know their gender to ascribe the term to their actions?
    That online mansplaining on the internet is an oxymoron?

    This would mean that wegs is wrong. She cannot spot a mansplainer, even in principle, since the person behind the 'splaining might be female.

    You might not know if I’m female, but I’ve formed friendships with a few people offline here. They know lol

    How do we know you’re a guy?

    To clarify:

    I'm not actually saying wegs is wrong, I'm pointing out the opposite - by following the logic to a contradiction.

    If - as some were saying - one *needs* to know the actual gender of the person, then one could never say someone is mansplaining online. (So , by *that* logic, wegs couldn't spot a mansplainer.)

    Since mansplaining *can* and does happen online, as wegs has noted - one *doesn't* need to now their actual gender to call it mansplaining. As wegs *is* able to do.

    i have met many women who mansplain
    they are mostly christian conservative or chasing group acceptance with low self esteem and low self worth.
    they do not come across as having low self esteem to the average person.
    it does get confused with mania
    those who have been gender stereo typed through childhood indoctrination is quite common.

    if you goal is to be king or queen of the shit heap then your going to live a life rolling in shit because that is what you desire and morally adhere to.

    conscious subconscious bias combined to be defined from a self victimising point of projected bully model normalcy.
    very in vogue with conservatist religious folk

    though what use is a computer to monkey but another hard object to use as a hammer against another weaker monkey
    chimpanzees show empathy & sadism

    side note(thread for the religion forum)
    why is christian evangelism soo(covertly) homophobic and anti LGBTQ+ ?

    Not in this case. The term "mansplaining" is a gendered term. It doesn't apply to the utterances of women.

    It is exclusive to men, by the way the word is used/defined.

    If you want to talk about similar behaviour by women, you'll need to use a different word.

    Hysteria is a gendered term as well (Greek for uterus).
    Its use has changed as we abandoned gender-based delineations of behavior.
    We don't need a new word for hysterical men.

    My only assertion is that it isn't necessary to wait centuries to recognize that biology doesn't beget behavior.
