I’ve been told that suggesting someone is mansplaining is sexist. I’ve been called a bitch for pointing it out, even though I gave a clear example of how the literal dictionary definition of mansplaining was taking place. I’ve been accused of “femsplaining” in return for pointing out mansplaining. I don’t think any of these guys knew what the word actually meant.
