Mansplaining, a portmanteau of 'Man' and 'Explaining' is a term used to describe the action of a man explaining something to a woman, in a way that they deem sexist and/or condescending. The allegation of Mansplaining can be made by any woman at any time, provided they are ignorant of the double standards of using an insult designed to belittle someone of a particular gender on he basis of a stereotype.
Man- "Press the source button until you see HDMI in the corner of the screen and then..."
Woman- "Could I have a little less of the Mansplaining!"
Man- " What the fuck is Mansplaining?"
Woman- "its sexist, is what its is!"
Man- "Isn't the term Mansplaining inherently sexist because of it's..."
Woman- "THERE YOU GO AGAIN!!!"

A misandrist term for a man making too much sense.
Usually used by feminists to dismiss anything a man says that makes them look bad for stupid.
Feminist: "Obesity is absolutely a feminist issue, especially when fat people are called unhealthy and discriminated against!"

Man: "Obesity leads to diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and blood clots. They are only discriminated against, because it's unnatural for a human being to weigh 600 pounds. That would be a world record 30 years ago."

Feminist: "Stop mansplaining, you white male!"

When a man speaks to a woman exactly the same way he speaks to a man: somewhat mockingly, somewhat condescendingly, somewhat confrontationally. Ironically, feminists who champion equality among the sexes, expect men to change how they speak to accommodate their feminine sensibilities.
Woman: I don't feel conservatives care enough about social justice.
Man: That's ridiculous! That's just SJW propaganda. There can never be social justice if individual justice is ignored.

Woman: Stop mansplaining, you big jerk!
