Ever since someone told me about the word “mansplaining,” I felt an enormous sense of relief. So that’s what they call it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been interrupted, openly contradicted, shamed, or talked over in settings with men. It’s quite common in English graduate programs to be told that you’re wrong when you’re not, or that someone’s subjective opinion is passed off as incontrovertible fact. I won’t spoil the full review, which is replete with lots of caps, and a special gif. But seriously, please read this book, especially if you’re a male ally. Sometimes new-feminist male allies can fall into the mansplain trap the fastest.
