It delights me to no end to inform you (or, to have just been informed) that the word “mansplaining” now appears in the Oxford English Dictionary, and they define it like this:

“the explanation of something by a man, typically to a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.”

Or, to put it a little more colloquially, dudes telling women s**t they already know, or s**t that’s just wrong.

It’s more common than you might think. Here are just ten random, ridiculous examples, via Twitter.

6. IUDs

Again. Just. WHY would you choose this battle?

5. Plates
