A few years ago, Twitter user Kim Goodwin came up with an incredibly simple hack for well-intentioned men who want to avoid accidentally joining the league of their pesky mansplaining peers. Using a classic easy-to-understand flowchart, she efficiently laid out when and how they might be getting on a woman's nerves with their oversimplified and often unsolicited explanations. Talking to Bored Panda about the universal phenomenon, she revealed that the context which typically helps men understand women's perspective when it comes to mansplaining is parenting.



 

"Plenty of men are expert baby-burpers and diaper wranglers, but lots of women will just assume they’re incompetent. Now imagine that happening in almost every domain of your life—and especially at work," Goodwin said. "There may be helpful intent, but the problem is the conscious or unconscious assumption that the -splainee doesn't know something. People without societal privilege are frequent targets, which is why the behavior gets labeled mansplaining (or sometimes white-splaining, since white women often do this to women of color, too)." She also acknowledged attempts to label the term as reverse sexism, by pointing out that it ignores a prominent reality about life. "Trying to police the term is attempting to deny that communication patterns are influenced by systemic sexism or other pervasive imbalances," she said.

Here are 21 times when netizens decided they'd had enough of mansplainers and ruthlessly called them out on social media:
