Top Definition
The tendency of some women to mistakenly believe that they automatically know more about any given topic than does a man and who, consequently, proceed to explain to him- correctly or not- things that he already knows.
Man A: When he started womansplaining to me what it really meant to be a man in the 21st century, I got up and left.

Man B: Really, what else could you do?

Using bigoted, illogical rhetoric to explain why you intend to undervalue and/or ignore the point of view of someone of the opposite gender.
Claiming to be the final authority on sexism by right of your gender is womansplaining.

The opposite of Mansplaning, Womansplaining is a feminist/femi-nazi/feminISIS logic act of asking irrational questions and blocking the chance of a correct or logical answer and/or making unethical statements to try and force upon an inescapable predicament in a time of desperateness to make an unreasonable and unintelligent point.
"I couldn't even give her the reason why she was wrong because of her womansplaining. She told me to ignore the facts and answer the question and as i started again she crawled off into her safe space."

The act of a woman actively avoiding a question by making an attempt to divert the conversation to a new topic.
Man: Why do you dislike Donald Trump?
Woman: why do you think that Hillary Clinton is an unsuitable president?

The woman here clearly can't think of a reason to dislike Donald Trump and is trying to divert the conversation towards a subject that she thinks the man wont have an answer for or now anything about thus enacting the fine art of womansplaining

When a female qualifies a confident response for the sole purpose of protecting the male ego.
Example 1: Corporate Environment
Male: I have a great idea. I can't believe we've never done this before.
Woman (womansplaining): I think we discussed something kind of similar about a year ago. I'm not sure I remember exactly what we decided, but maybe there were some problems with that idea and the local laws? I can see if I can find emails about it if you would like. (Translation: You presented the same bad idea last year and nothing has changed.)

Example 2: Home Environment
Man: Amazon doesn't do same day delivery in our area.
Woman: Sure they do.
Man: I know they do some places, but not in our area yet.
Woman (womansplaining): Maybe we should google it. I thought our neighbor mentioned using their same day delivery, but maybe I misunderstood what she was saying. Or maybe it's recently changed? (Translation: I'm 100% sure because my friend next door uses it ALL THE TIME.)
