Womensplaining (verb, gerund) describes the phenomenon of someone (usually a woman, but not always) behaving as though she has superior knowledge to someone else (often a man) who actually knows more about the topic in question than she does.
Male: "Men and Boys are often victims of domestic violence and sexism, just like anyone else"

Female "No they can't. Saying that men or boys can be victims is sexist and will only empowers sexism against women. You don't understand the basic power dynamics of domestic abuse or you would know that already."

Male "Stop womansplaining to me!"
