And they say women have no humour😀

[–]ianslutFDS Newbie 322 points323 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

The LVM who say women aren't funny are the same men to think rape jokes are peak comedy 😃

[–]CescaTheGFDS Newbie 88 points89 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

This!!! You can hear it in their tone. I find this stereotype angers me more than any other. The men who assume all women aren’t funny are the ones who just can’t comprehend another humans point of view and they don’t understand maybe something they don’t experience is actually amusing to people who aren’t them.

[–]sekhmetwisdomFDS Newbie 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh and don't you love when you explain some cool bit of knowledge and all these scrotes can say in a doubting tone is "I've never seen or heard of that before".so They think it dosent exist.

“My dear”, gag. I hate how it’s being used as a micro aggression.

[–]CessacolypseFDS Newbie 38 points39 points  (9 children) | Copy Link

Can you explain this? I genuinely don’t know and I want to learn why it’s a micro aggression

[–]dollymyfollyFDS Newbie 123 points124 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

It’s being used in a patronizing and condescending way to imply she’s stupid, not because she is actually dear to him.

[–]Platipus6FDS Disciple 112 points113 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

"My" is possessive

"Dear" is patriarchal, condescending and hierarchical.

He's announced he believes he's superior and you're his silly little possession. What a knob lol.

I will never forget the time during first days of college when this guy in my music class tried to mansplain to me how to play the guitar telling me how chords work and where to place my fingers etc. mind you this guys a drummer. I asked him how long he'd been playing guitar and to my shock he just casually goes "oh only a couple of years, you?" I proceed to tell him that Ive been playing since I was 5 and that im also classically trained. The way he quickly opted to go to the bathroom after that was hilarious, never approached me again after that day.

[–]seraphinelysionFDS Apprentice 446 points447 points  (9 children) | Copy Link

Went completely over the head of that mansplainer. 🙄😆🤣

[–]LorinthiaPickmeisha™️ 201 points202 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I don’t get the joke!

(/s, Obviously)

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I like to mansplain to men at work. It's hilarious how worked up some of them get.

[–]DaisyDooDropsFDS Newbie 57 points58 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Unfortunately, I did this all throughout high school and was treated and labeled as an “air head” by the people around me, and it was pretty much impossible for people to take me seriously. We can never win I suppose.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie 20 points21 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Same. Lol. After school a gf had to explain to someone why she was hanging out with me "but isn't she like really dumb?" My mate was like "lol no. You just weren't worth her time so that's the persona you were served" 🤣🤣🤣

[–]fuckwithawitch 24 points25 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

What saddens me is that a lot of male “jokes” are at the expense of women

[–]DatonecatladyuknoFDS Apprentice 69 points70 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

You’ve become a statistic GREG

[–]AveryhvwFDS Newbie 68 points69 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Lmao Greg is so dumb 🤣

[–]CityshyFDS Newbie 19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Haha oh Greg

[–]4everdoeFDS Newbie 116 points117 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Mansplaining is so important to them. They actually think we need help understanding these things.

[–]EasymodelifeFDS Newbie 41 points42 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I don't think mansplainers give a moment's consideration to whether we need or want their help understanding things. It's all about placating their fragile egos - "Listen to ME, aren't you impressed by MY VALUABLE INSIGHTS as a man?" They seem oblivious to how off-putting it is, probably because women are socialised to be polite and receptive. We should make less of an effort to hide how we feel when they do this.

[–]Aina98FDS Newbie 84 points85 points  (12 children) | Copy Link

I'm finishing my undergraduate in Psychology. I've been to multiple psychologists and psychiatrists. My dad's a doctor. One day this guy I was talking to goes, "So my friend was prescribed some pills. But only psychiatrists can do that. I don't know if you know the difference between psychologists and psychiatrists". I laughed and said "of course I do, I'm finishing my psych degree and I go to the psychiatrist" and he was like "oh". (Context: I'd told him this before, I guess he forgot amidst the mansplaining.) Internally I was like, oh no, please go on, explain to me the differences in the profession given you have a background in BEING IN THE MILITARY. Lord Jesus have mercy on us all.

[–][deleted] 35 points36 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

I had a manual labourer fRiEnD getting into a long mansplaining marathon about the area of my expertise that I have two degrees in. He even said, quite earnestly, that “I should educate myself”, at which point I laughed and I said: “remember, I get paid to talk about that and spent 5 years in universities studying it”. He was unphased, and said that universities are really limited in providing “true” information and that I should educate myself on YouTube 🤣🤣🤣

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Ugh!!! This annoys me so much! The amount of people in general who they they’re just as educated on a topic and know just as much as someone who holds a multiple degrees in that topic annoys me so much! Yes- universities aren’t the only place to get an education, and you don’t need a degree to have an opinion or some good understanding of something, but reading pop culture articles, a Netflix documentary and a handful of YouTube video is not the equivalent of 6+ years of formal education! I also find these kinds of people (usually guys) so arrogant in their views!

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

You’d be very unlikely to hear that kind of tosh from women. It’s fine to hold an opinion of any kind, but the arrogance to tell someone who specialises in that area to “educate themselves of YouTube” is probably exclusively a male thing.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Lol! Let me guess, y'all are in the US?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Nah, the opposite side of the world, but the said friend turns out to be a massive follower of US-based conspiracy theory nutcases.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ahh that makes sense 🤣

[–]thinktwiceorelseFDS Newbie 59 points60 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I once trolled my ex bf that I thought a hand blender was a curling iron when we were shopping. Of course he started explaining lmao.

[–]LueclesteFDS Newbie 119 points120 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

One time I was in town, grabbing something, was with a gay male friend.

You know those annoying sales people, who harass you to sell you stuff? There was this one, he was really pushy and annoying. So I decided to bite.

Turns out, he was trying to sell a credit debit card. This was before these were really widespread, so I pretended not to understand. How can it be a credit card, if you use your own money? A credit card is loan money you pay back. If there’s no credit, isn’t it just a debit card?

This went around in circles a few times, the guy was getting really frustrated, and eventually, my friend grabbed my arm, and pulled me away. “I’ll explain it to her!”

We get around the corner, and he just says “God damn. That was hilarious! Darling don’t ever change”.

See, I’m often oblivious to body language, tone of voice, etc., except when I’m not. I’m possibly autistic.

Turns out the guy looked like he was about to scream or hit me. My friend nearly collapsed from trying not to laugh. He had to get me away from the guy before one of those happened.

So yes, can confirm. And it’s hilarious.

Also, selling guy explained it really badly. But he stopped being pushy.

[–]xyzedb_FDS Newbie 4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Yes but don’t you think that just perpetuates the idea he already has that women are dumb and need things explained to them? So it’s not really helping us is it. But either way I’m sure that was funny

[–]LueclesteFDS Newbie 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Honestly, if you spend 15 minutes with someone going in circles, you should have had an inkling at some point lol.

[–]themintmittenFDS Newbie 44 points45 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

One time my ex tried to mansplain to me how teaching was easy. “You just give them the information and thats it”

I almost smacked him and I snapped at him so hard he never dared to say something like that to me again.

[–]RabidWenchFDS Disciple 16 points17 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Jesus christ on a pogo... let me just slip that tidbit to my poor dyslexic (Mensa member) brother and my gifted/talented sons who have the attention span of goldfish.... I would like to know more about how education is one size fits all. 🙄

[–]themintmittenFDS Newbie 13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I KNOW! Teaching entails adjusting to all types of learners! And most learners don’t learn well from direct instruction in that form of just “telling them the info”.

I honestly should’ve broken up with him after that bc he clearly didn’t respect my job. Just cuz hes a pharmacist he thinks he knows everything.

[–]electroloopRuthless Strategist 83 points84 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

I absolutely do this, I think it’s part of the “dumb fox” strategy. I’ve pretended not to know how to do things to get out of doing them for demanding LVM ex’s.

Most notable favourites:

1) pretended I didn’t know how to cut an onion so he would stop asking me to help him with his terrible cooking. 2) pretended I didn’t know how to do something with my phone to see how far he would snoop in it

He legitimately thought I was stupid and it was quite hilarious to see how infuriated he would get. I was testing him to see if he was empathetic and patient, two qualities he severely lacked.

[–]vietnamese-bitchFDS Apprentice 14 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

64 seen comments but a total of 107 lol. Stay mad, scrotes! 🤣

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

At work I use men who think women are stupid to my advantage. Sorry sir I'm too dumb to move this heavy object over there can you please do it for me? It works, sadly, every single time. But hey, if they're going to think I'm dumb anyway I might as well have them do the heavy lifting. They even get to feel manly or whatever I guess.

[–]ceilingkatwatchesusFDS Disciple 12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I always unconsciously go into scarastic asshole mode. I start being over the top by saying, "Wow, gee golly tell me more sensei." And "omg, how do you know all of these things, oh great one." Of course, they get it and get annoyed which is the whole point. I basically mirror them and they get mad about it and it's just hilarious for me. They immediately stop that shit once they see my eyes get all starry eyed big. Aaahahahahahahah

[–][deleted] 45 points46 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Lol I love doing this

[–]AotearoaCanuckFDS Newbie 11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Omg I did this one time to a creep on tinder who was hinting that he liked wearing diapers. It was so much fun to mess with him.

[–]vietnamese-bitchFDS Apprentice 47 points48 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Males never fail to prove how stupid they are 😌

A guy I was dating was in a pool with me one day and I asked him what swim strokes he knew how to do and whether he had ever had formal swim lessons. He begins to answer with the chest stroke and then goes on to explain its education. I began boiling internally and snapped at him “I know. I was a lifeguard, remember? And I was in the Marine Corps” and he was like “oh...well I don’t know how much you learn about swimming in lifeguard training”. One time when I asked the guy to grab a butter knife for me, he was like “these aren’t butter knives”. Dude was apparently trying to figure out what the opposite of an aphrodisiac by getting technical and showing off his knowledge about cutlery at one of the stupidest times. If I want a butter knife, just grab the one that is closest to what you think I want - no need to try to turn it into a learning opportunity. Better yet, just don’t.

A couple of my male friends also are plagued by mansplaining at times. When I vent to one, he’ll start to talk about my problem as if he were in my shoes and I told him it comes off like he thinks he’s in the one-up position and like he’s trying to give unsolicited advice. He’s a good guy and said he really appreciate me being honest with him and explaining it since he genuinely didn’t get it.

Another friend of mine has been struggling a lot with dating and he happens to be in the same kind of graduate program as me, which is currently going through this rigorous application process. I have previously asked him direct questions like “how many sites are you applying to?” And instead of answering the question, he’ll go on to give me information that I’m pretty sure eeeeeeveryone in our program knows, like that we need to apply to 15/16 for the best chance to match and blah blah blah instead of just telling me the number he has. At times it comes off like he thinks he’s more responsible than me or thinks he is better informed, but I haven’t confronted him about it yet since he historically only texts and I prefer to do confrontations when someone can actually hear me. But I’m beginning to think that this could be part of why he struggles to date - men trying to show off their knowledge without solicitation is such a turn off.

‘You’re rude as fuck’ is something I’ve used in every context except a work superior.

Works well.

[–]daisy_0720FDS STRATEGY COACH 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is probably the best way to respond when a guy makes an inappropriate or sexist joke, especially in front of other people. Just say "I'm afraid I don't understand. Could you explain?' Then watch as he gets increasingly awkward trying to explain himself while revealing how gross and depraved the comment was.

[–]engg_girl 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

It is also really great at avoiding situations where you can't out right say no. "Oh room service for dessert sounds great, I'll go to my room and order me some cake" "why would you want to come to my room, when you could order cake to your own room?"

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I just had a mate over who started this shit with me. I finally had enough and just told him to leave. Promptly blocked him on all socials. We weren't particularly close so no big deal but I'm so over giving these smooth brains a pass. Adiõs bitch!

[–]poison_snaccFDS Newbie 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

THIS. 🙏🏻 the goddess speaks

God, This has quickly become my most favorite sub on Reddit

[–]LotsaQuarters 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This always reminds me of the "sharks are smooth" thread. Funny as hell seeing how far people (mainly men if I remember correctly) are strung along
