Are You A Mansplainer?
[Image: 1_photo.jpg]

Yes, this picture is treated as serious. This concept is downright hilarious - and seriously depressing.

First off, understand that this sort of concept will develop in any society that has women mixing with men in competitive environments - like college, workplaces, etc. Colleges used to be much more competitive in decades past when they were made up primarily of men and the women there were seeking husbands.

Two examples from the Tumblr:

Quote:I do not have diabetes. However, I suffer from bouts of hypoglycemia- nothing major, but enough that I have to be careful about what I eat and drink, and when- and I was relating a story of one of my episodes to some of my flatmates last year when the guy next to me started staring at me. He was diabetic, so I figured it was an empathy thing, but a moment later he interrupted me. “But you can’t get low blood sugar stuff like that if you don’t have diabetes.”

"Yes," I explained, "you can. It’s caused by-"

"Well, I’m diabetic, and I say you can’t.”

And no matter how hard I tried to explain to him, that was that. Apparently his having a condition that is kinda similar to the one I have makes him the expert on my body and how it works. Who knew?

Apparently this happened because she was a woman and he was a man.

Quote:[International Student] How far is a marathon in kilometers?

[Me, after quick mental math]: About 42 kilometers (The exact answer is 42.195).

[International Student]: That’s really far! What would you say is a “good” time for someone who is not a professional runner?

[Me]: Well—

[Summer Student, Interrupting]:Well, ultra marathons are typically 50 kilometers. A marathon is shorter than that, so I would say between 40 and 45 kilometers.

[Me]: Didn’t I just say that?

[Summer Student, In his best explaining-science-to-small-children voice]: No, you said about 42 kilometers. I said between 40 and 45 kilometers. That’s a big difference.

A man one-up's a woman and that is simply because she is a woman.

Mansplaining is a concept that emerged in 2008 in a LA Time article by Jessica Solnit named, "Men Explain Things To Me." I was blue-pill at the time, but it still pissed me off. If you have any skin the game, you should already women are primarily looking for venting their emotions in life rather than somebody solving their problems. That is precisely why women continuously and almost always toss monkey wrenches in the machinations of men. Mansplaining is defined as when a man, when talking to a woman, treats her differently than he would a man and talks down to her with arrogance, pretends she is ignorant, talks with upsetting tones and doesn't recognize the dignity, humanity and competency of the female engaged with.

First off:

Laugh3

Really? Must we really still be care-takers of the poor dear's feelings?

First off, this is a classic narcissism as the women who believe in the concept start from their experiences and extrapolate from there. They don't understand the concept of larger trends and forming opinions about the world around them from those trends. That is why you often see ardent anti-rape feminists claiming to be have been a victim of rape. They push unbelievable statistics about the prevalency of rape in the world simply because they think their life experiences are so important, so universal that it isn't just that other women experience them, but that most women probably do.

These women are so caught up in their desire to be superior to men -that IS what they believe, while simultaneously aware of their low esteem that mansplaining is what they invent in order to deal with the fact that a man is challenging them, either explicitly (debating) or implicitly (explaining a concept she pretends to understand or a concept she understands but is unsure of herself).

With smashing of gender roles, women love to pretend they are civilizing the men - not good enough women watch men from the home, creating diversity and making the world a safer place (for them) but what they don't understand is they are killing the advancement of knowledge and ideas. Mansplaining reeks of the supreme self-centeredness of the modern women, thinking her feelings are first priority in any situation that involves men. The modern woman is so paranoid she is in constant awareness of being a female and constantly worrying men are thinking of her as a woman instead of a human being. She thinks differences between men and women are erected in order to suborn women and thinks the solution is she needs to be treated as a human being devoid of sex - but one also with significantly heightened sensitivity, due to sexism of course. Someday she will deal with her low self-esteem once the patriarchy ends - oh, wait. She doesn't even realize that is the majority of her problem. Just double down on narcissism. Hey, it works in the short term.

[Image: jen1.jpg]

That is the complete problem. Women, like the above Jen McCreight, treat serious issues as fun, empowering and exhilarating - often taking many pictures and making kissy faces or other ludicrous poses. This is mocking behavior, as they have been taught that men and what men do is and are inferior to what women do. All those TV shows for kids that show ass-kicking females and male followers inculcate views that males are boorish, ineffectual and are simply side-kicks to a female's life. Later in life, groups and movements aimed getting women into math and science programs reinforce the idea that men have it better in society and women need a leg up over the hopelessly privileged man. The drowning multiplicity of government and private programs exclusively aimed at coaxing the oppressed woman up the dreaded male corporate hierarchy (with the direct aim at blasting the misogynistic glass ceiling) is the final nail in the coffin that allows women to pretend they are better than men (they are afraid of your potential!) while simultaneously allowing them to sexualize men.

Nirvana awaits there, as they are told.

It isn't. I can't recall the woman, but one woman a couple years back, working with Susan Walsh, penned an article for The Atlantic in which she laid out the metaphor that women and climbed the staircase into their middle age, with the pithy and pretend achievements of career success, and find there are no handsome, roguish men waiting to sweep them off their feet and into in vitro-aided marital bliss. That is how life has been dictated to them by associates, friends and the all-powerful media. Darker still, women choose this route. You think aging women want to consume media that states that at age 30 that only 10% of their eggs are left? No, they will consume media that states they are in their sexual prime with the "real" men stepping up to capture their narcissistic heart. See the relationship between narcissism and authoritarianism?

If this isn't bad enough, they have been tearing through colleges and workplaces, demanding equal treatment which, to them, means treating them as they wish to be treated. They falsely assume how men treat each other, then demand to be taken seriously as equals in these institutions they seek access to. When they find out that they might get challenged or just treated as "one of the boys," they find out their delusions about themselves are being cracked, so they claim that such behavior is sexist, violating her human dignity and is exclusionary.

In their self-absorbed collective effort to stymie opinions that spur uncomfortable feelings, they also drown intellectualism in the shallowest pool imaginable. Valuing comfort over challenge, they lay to rest the competitive - and often brutal - world of intellectual debate. Remind me again - are men better comedians than women? Gee, I wonder why.

A common refrain in feminist and female circles is how they love a vigorous debate, but then toss in massive roadblocks suffocating debate. Often times, especially with feminism and so-called women's issues, the roadblocks are so severe that if you were even begin to climb them, you would immediately treated as a misogynist. They claim to be pro-this and that, but their actions belie their true intent. The complete and utter suffocation of true intellectual sparring is what is desired - the replacement is the feel-good world of authority figures dispensing with - often times cruelly and hatefully - out-group members who have yet to convert to the state religion of politically correct feminism.

[Image: rothman_mansplain_post.png]

Mansplaining is yet another attempt at suborning men to women. They pretend men talk to them in such a "sexist" manner because they are women. What they have done is find out when men treat women like equals. We debate, attack and go back and forth constantly with other men. We break each other's balls and mock each other. Then we go get drunk at the bar like brothers.

Women don't understand that. Since they start from themselves and extrapolate outwards, they take every slight as personal and meant to degrade them - you know, how women treat each other. They apply the relational calculus to men and find the answer is horribly sexist because they falsely assume if equality is achieved between men and women then conflict, anger and all untoward emotions will drain away into a modern day Eden.

The most dangerous assumption is that human progress, done often by the elites, is a product purely of privilege. It truly is done by genius, hard work and luck. I can't even begin to count how many women I have had passing contact with who giddily assume once they get degree X, job Y or the nebulous Z they will finally be able to start changing the world, inventing that or greatly forming that. It reminds me of somebody who thinks they need a degree in English to be a writer. With that logic, I need my PhD in English to be a popular writer.

It is the narcissistic idea that America will always be great and always prosper. Like I noted with McCreight above, she is supremely superficial and her pathetic little sign, "Science In Progress!" while showing her boobs is just sad. She reinforces women watch men make scientific process while flaunting her only sexual goods. Checkmate, feminist.

Mansplaining, at its heart, is about the idea the progress just happens and men will continue to invent, theorize and do it all with women present - just so long as they censor their thoughts as women wish. It is like going to a psychologist and your therapist saying, "You can say whatever you think or feel in so long as it does not offend me." There is no therapy on that psychologist's couch.

Women will pretend they are part of technological, scientific and theoretical progress, often times clinging to the coattails of a man who needs a female name on the study. It needs to be said that a few women do do original research, but the strong majority of women are just around to status-whore and self-aggrandize. Some women do contribute greatly, but their accomplishments are crowded out by self-absorbed women who are only interested in advancing their self-image as X, Y or Z. Women are just there for the ride, clinging to the idea they have the same qualities as the men they desire and get fucked by.

But, hey, life is all just a performance, just a facade. Just a game. Progress is being made, don't be a misogynist and deny the emerging equity between men and women that will build the future of this country.

Am I out of Southern Comfort already?

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
Brilliant!

I have been busting my ass over a decade, working as much as possible, living as cheaply as possible, all just so I no longer have to work for someone else. But in reality, it is all so I don't have to work in our BS PC environment, and 99% of those issues are raised by women.

This is basically the origin of 'science is for nerds and nerds are boring' concept. Of course, now that a lot of women are going into STEM fields, we have the recent phenomenon of Nerd Fetishism. Nerd Fetishists are identified as women who are into things like Carl Sagan's Cosmos, or 'I fucking LOVE science' on facebook. They pretend to be into science but their attitude is one of mockery and belittlement. For them, it's Neil Degrasse Tyson explaining evolution, or Hello Kitty. There's no real difference. They are unable to comprehend how serious scientific work actually is.

The reason I'm mentioning this is because I work in a science-related field and I see this type of phenomenon every day.

Maddox did a good write up of this a while ago: http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cg...not_a_nerd

One minor nit: You said "First off" three times. Sorry for being a nazi, but it's kind of annoying and trips up the reader's brain. Other than that, good stuff.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
With one of your ROK posts, you got challenged by .. sita?.. I think, and you didn't drop her a peg.

This also aligns with Rollo starting to lose some steam. Your views are excellent, amongst the top notch we have.

It needs to be a more widespread view, and you need to beat down any challenge, such as sita.

You're doing young men harm by NOT being their voice.

Why is there inertia to starting your own blog? Put it this way, nothing you post will ever go viral from this forum.

I also think that we need to recognize outlier women who are actually saying truth, or are actually high-testosterone lesbians (imagine what it would be like if you were trapped in a woman's body but had your sex inclinations).

We need to start a war on attention whoring and classlessness.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
Didn't mess with Sita all that much because I was at work with all that BS going down.

Sita was just a bunch of unused intellectual energy that exploded on my post. In her life, she just parrots this and that, but she longs for real debate. The issue with that, is, she always shuts down the debate with accusations of misogyny out of the gate. Think the "scorpion and frog" parable. Typical - craves alpha cock, but claims to love and marries the beta.

As far as starting blog, this summer, for me, has had two endeavors that are far more important than starting a blog. I will promise the forum I will have a blog live before the release of GTA V.

As far as inertia, I am not looking to get viral from this forum. I post here precisely because it is a community with commonly held beliefs. Often, it is my musings and observations. Nothing more, nothing less.

Wow, I just noticed that. It is annoying and I have a habit of just riffing when I have something to say.

Well, there are many things to "First off" understand in this piece. Laugh

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
As usual, this is a problem created by manginas. It's manginas that blather on to feminists about the female experience trying to demonstrate they "get it." Even feminists find these deplorable creatures loathsome, and I'm pretty sure this is where mansplaining came from.

You really have to try to see things from the female perspective on this one. Imagine being surrounded by a cloud of beta orbiters who are all trying to get into your pants by explaining the female perspective to you. You'd hate them to.

Unfortunately, parrots that they are, most feminists now accuse everyone of mansplaining. If you're a guy with an opinion, you're mansplaining.

Personally, I never try to explain anything to a woman in this culture, it's just opening a can of worms. I don't give two fucks if she understands or not, if she's interested she can look it up. I have good discussions sometimes with my girlfriend, but apart from that, I avoid discussing things with Canadian women.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
Excellent point.

I recall Jaclyn Friedman conveying in an interview that she hates going on dates with feminist men, stating they are desperately seeking her approval. She claims it is because they haven't internalized their feminism.

Friedman ignores the fact feminists demand men sit down, listen and take their cues from women on how to behave. By definition, feminists are seeking to create men that will have no ability to self-define outside female feminist approval - creating highly insecure, dependent males.

You are correct, mansplaining is used all too often in order to discredit a man's opinion. Since the world revolves around an individual feminist, they think everybody is obsessing and categorizing the world into men and women and treating them differently because of that.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
I've run into this when I got tired of explaining to a girl why she has boy problems (first mistake).

Sometimes, falling back on the agree and amplify works best to discredit their objections. I've had a bit of fun calling them out explaining like in the above example, "There's obviously something out there that you like and you keep thinking trying something else is going to change it. That's the definition of insanity."

However, it's best to just laugh and not bother. Can't win with sound logical arguments. The real talent whether it be a man or a woman will rise to the top regardless of stupid girls like her.

Last night I my mother asked me how to charge her iPod through her computer since she only had the USB cable. I had to tell her very slowly like she was 5 years old, since she is a Luddite. Is that mansplaining?

what I usually find with women that complain about 'mansplainers', is that for one, they just are not that smart, and two, they dont ever care to be. and this is EVEN IN A TECHNICAL BUSINESS.

the old adage is always true, one on one, the less you say the better, if you can get away without saying a single word, more power to you. Any woman I am with I try not to talk, and if I do, I either dont give a shit what she thinks of me, or I am just entertaining myself because she is so boring.

When you are presenting to a group, thats a different story. As they suck down their frappacino and muffins they usually want to be entertained, even if you are a good presenter. I see it everyday in a highly technical industry. These women neither want or care to be smarter, and thankfully they have men building the shit that allows them to have such a cushy job.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
The opposite of Mansplaining should be "fatsplaining" or "tumbsplaining." Example: An overweight girl made a negative comment about my hoodie, so I bluntly retaliated with "Well you're fat." She got offended and later fatsplained to me that she isn't fat because "I can buy clothes in my size." Alright, whatever you have to tell yourself.... Keep that hamster wheel spinning.

RE: Are You A Mansplainer?
I can't tell you how many time I've heard from a woman; "you just don't know how women work.." that usually means I'm hitting all the right buttons to keep their interest, because I frankly do not care to learn how women work. I'd have to unlearn everything of value to live in that frame. no thanks.

Now when it comes to actually explaining something of rational value to a woman, even if it's only going to take 20 seconds of concise communication, most women start to turn off after about 5 seconds because their self-preserved-pedestalizations automatically kick in because now you're suddenly a threat their hamster's intellect.

I'm usually not a mansplainer - per the above context - but I have two true gifts for women. 1) sex & excitement, 2) the selfless gift of my knowledge. If they do not care to accept the latter, we then they're cementing the fact that all relations with them will be primarily sexual. So be it. I've got my boys to talk rational shit to.
