These Tweets Hilariously Describe Mansplaining And Womanhood In The 21st Century

Published

Here’s a social experiment for you: Gather a group of women together in any place at any time. Ask them to share stories of times when they’ve been doubted, talked down to, or judged by others. The conversations would probably go on for hours.

These women shared their relatable stories online. These are the most (painfully) relevant.

 

Unsolicited Advice Everywhere

Twitter

Are you familiar with the concept of mansplaining? It’s a very specific kind of interaction in which a guy seems to feel totally certain that he knows more than a woman about something…

 

Actually, Here’s The Thing

Twitter

Mansplaining really only became labeled as such recently, but any woman can tell you that it’s been happening for, well, the entirety of history.

 

It’s Backed By Sciene

Twitter

 

Frustrated as you read about mansplaining? Don’t be. It’s just science. Researchers at George Washington University published a 2014 study in the Journal Of Language And Social Psychology after they found that women are interrupted more often than men.

 

Too Quick And Sloppy

Twitter

This guy was so eager to tell this woman What He Knows that he completely missed the fact that she wrote the article he’s chiding her to “read in full.”

 

Oh, Wait, You Did?

Twitter

If a woman tells you that someone is untrustworthy, disrespectful, or even worse, try to think of reasons why you should believe her before trying to disprove her statements.

 

You’re So Pretty… Smile!

Twitter

 

Yeah, you know, because us ladies can’t just exist. We’ve got to exist and always look our best while we’re doing it. Give me a break.

 

The Cosmetic Paradigm

Twitter

People are frustrated when women wear cosmetics. They’re upset when they find out that those same women neglected to dress their faces up before leaving the house. Hmm…

 

Where’s This Coming From?

Twitter

 

Linguist and author Deborah Tannen wrote in a 1990 book that men often talk in order to determine and achieve their status. Women, on the other hand, talk in order to determine and achieve connection.

 

Just Pretending That Nobody Cares

Twitter

 

Recognizing the humor in all of this helps take the edge off for those of us who have experienced it firsthand. If you feel a bit miffed, ask yourself if it’s perhaps because you’re guilty of mansplaining.

 

Think Before You Speak

Twitter

 

Nobody’s perfect. Do your best by simply thinking before you speak or act. Someone who feels the urge to interrupt or talk down to another should pause and ask themselves what they’ll really be adding to the conversation.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
