Mansplaining is the worst. Even in 2017, men are still “explaining” things to women in a condescending and patronising manner. Not cool.
Host of the “Another Round” podcast at Buzzfeed, Tracey Clayton, asked women to share their everyday experiences of mansplaining and somewhat depressingly the responses flooded in.
women, what’s the most infuriating thing you’ve had mansplained to you?

From women being told how to pronounce their own name, to men explaining women’s jobs to them; these stories will make your blood well and truly boil.
One woman described her experience of being simultaneously whitesplained and mansplained by a younger man. And, during this “explanation” he made racial slurs about Michelle Obama.
One woman had her sexual assault explained to her.
Apparently reproductive healthcare is also a topic that men enjoy explaining to women.
One woman was even mansplained while she was in labour.
And some men took it upon themselves to explain pregnancy to women who’d been pregnant on multiple occasions.
It seems that menstruation isn’t off limits when it comes to mansplaining.
Writers and journalists also shared their experiences of being mansplained about stories they’ve written and topics they specialise in.
Women also shared experiences of having their jobs explained to them. Wow, so helpful!
Seemingly some women just don’t know how to pronounce their own name.
One non-profit worker recounted something that happened to her at the White House while she was waiting to meet with President Obama because of her work.
Ugh. Please stop mansplaining.
