Manspeaking is when, among a conversation of women, a man speaks without first being spoken to. This term is used by feminist to silence a man who's speaking when their input in the conversation is not needed. To avoid manspeaking, you must wait to be spoken to first before saying a word. If you're not spoken to, stick to being the obedient, silent, good male feminist that you're supposed to be.
(NOTE: manspeaking usually only applies to conversations among feminists)
Feminist 1: that's the problem with this hetero-patriarchal society we live in.
Feminist 2: Yes. exactly.
Male: Yeah. The patriarchy is terrible.
Feminist 1: stop MANSPEAKING. No one asked you to say anything about this.
