The most infuriating examples of mansplaining

If you're adamant inequality between the sexes doesn't exist, you won't want to read this.

Mansplaining. It's a term you might have heard thrown around recently, without much thought to what it is or what it means.

According to the Dictionary.com definition, to mansplain is for a male "to comment on or explain to a woman in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner."

You know what we mean. It's when that guy at work tries to explain away the fact that men earn more than women, even when we're doing exactly the same job.

Or even, how female orgasms work, as if they are the authority on the subject.
