This is common among mixed gender discussions and debates. The term mansplaining is commonly thrown around by those wish to turn the argument into a battle of the sexes or just lack any knowledge or means od adding value to the discussion and wish to devalue the input of other's (in this case males) who are involved in said discussion.

Sue: "Oh there you go again mansplaining!"
However, the term quickly degenerated into a get-out-of-jail-free card used by angry women when a man dares to point out even the most blatant error.

As a father to a young daughter showing an interest in making her own comics, I do really care about this stuff. So I don’t want our difference of accounts to take attention away from that industry-wide discussion that needs to happen.
