Ask A Genius 179 – Political Movements (Part 5)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 26, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rosner: The people I follow who are doing this have specifically said, “Don’t – trolls aside – be this way when you’re communicating with me. Don’t mansplain at me. Here’s what mansplaining is. If you’re my friend, you won’t mansplain at me. Here’s what mansplaining is.”

Even though, they say, “Come on, this is what it is, stop doing it. Guys cannot stop themselves from doing it.”

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Because they’re people and people explain things to one another.

Rosner: Yea, but mansplaining is, I think, when you explain something that either doesn’t need to be explained or should be obvious to the person who is being explained at. It’s like my mother-in-law explains at me and anyone around her.
