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 opposing a logical, factual discussion or explanation by accusing the opposition of mansplaining and/or being sexist or misogynist and therefore their opinion is uneducated, thereby devaluing the argument through character attacks in lieu of an actual counter argument.
Commonly used alongside accusations of racism/transphobia or any other baseless character attack, and the claim an opinion is invalid on the basis of the speakers gender.
This is primarily used as a tactic by militant feminists as a shield of false righteousness against valid criticism.
I presented a statistical analysis of why the wage gap is a myth, and her only argument in response was womansplaining and accuse me of being a bigot and thereby dismissed my factual presentation because of my gender.
