What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than by laughing at some hilarious tweets by women? If you’re a woman on the Internet, or I guess just a woman, you’re probably familiar with the term “mansplaining”. Sure, the term may be annoying (or, as men claim, sexist), but there is a definite phenomenon of men explaining things to women we know, sharing unwanted opinions, or even trying to improve our jokes. Here are some funny mansplaining jokes, as well as some hilarious examples of mansplaining in action.
Wait is this the mansplainin emoj ??????????????????????????????
