    Exactly: Incel-ness is a social problem to be taken seriously. Maybe some Mexican pussy could have stopped the El Paso shooter from committing his crime. As a society we can do better for our young men.

    About a year ago I became acquainted with a word I never knew existed: misandry. Essentially, it's the opposite of misogyny. I've always known there were female sexists, since intolerance is sadly endemic to human nature. But to discover there's actually a term for it is strangely liberating in that it implies a greater acknowledgement of something I've always known was there.
    Mansplain feminism some more.

    So original, a bunch of men figuring out what feminism really means.

    Well, not surprisingly, you're responding in typical hyperbolic fashion.

    No, I'm not a victim; neither am I looking for pity. Now.......do you actually have a substantive response to any of the specific points I made, or are you just going to whine and rant in knee-jerk fashion?

    C'mon. Surprise me.

    You decry feminism as a supremacist movement and then whine about hyperbole?

    How sophomoric.

    Ah, yes. "Mainsplain". The fallback, default response given nowadays whenever a man has the gall to disagree with a woman about virtually anything where the subject is gender politics.

    I don't know your age; but I'm old enough to clearly remember when the modern feminist movement got underway in the Seventies......yet young enough to still be closely in touch with how the issue is advanced and debated currently.

    Now: can you actually substantively respond to anything I've said......or are you just going to throw out the same, tired old knee-jerk default responses whenever a man has the gall to disagree with you?

    I'm simply telling you how it's sometimes framed. Heck, the piece you cited spoke of women in glowing terms, as more closely connected to "Nature" or some such New Age Drivel.

    I've heard some women--and even a man or two--suggest that all we need is a woman president, and virtually all our problems would be solved. I usually respond by asking how they'd react if they woke up tomorrow to find Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin as president.

    That usually works.

    No, that's how you framed it. That's how sissy little victim boys frame it, and how you framed it.

    Someone doesn't like to know when they are mansplaining, I guess.

    Can you substantively explain then how exactly mainstream feminism now implies gender superiority?

    OP looks like a Youtuber who is trying to get people to watch his videos. I doubt he believes what he's pitching.

    The solution to men mansplaining: Don't explain your actions. When some woman asks you why you're suing her, just shrug. That way you're not mansplaining.
