Mansplaining


From here,

Women who have things mansplained to them in the workplace can now report it to a dedicated hotline. 

Unionen, Sweden’s largest union, is encouraging members to call up when male colleagues give them unsolicited lectures on things they already understand. 

This naturally raises many questions.  Let us start with “How does the man know that you already understand it”?  Perhaps he is supposed to be a mind reader.  Is it mansplaining if one man explains to another man what he already knows?  What if the woman thought that she understood it well, but the man adds some information that she did not know?  Is this mansplaining?

Perhaps a bigger question is why is it being treated like a crime, with a hotline and all?

The organisation, which represents 600,000 private sector workers, launched the advice line on Monday and said it will be open from 10am to 4pm everyday for a week as part of a campaign to highlight and stamp out the insidious and damaging practice 

It is insidious I see.  If this is one of your big times problems (as shown by a hotline and all), then perhaps you don’t really have many problems.  Or perhaps you are making a fuss about this problem in order to distract from real problems.

For those who might not be familiar with the modern portmanteau, the union defined mansplaining as when “a man explains something to a woman without being asked, particularly something which she might already know more about than the man”. 

Once again, are people mind readers?

A study by the American Psychological Association found that men “tend to overestimate their intelligence to a much greater extent than women” and showed that “self-assurance in men grows with age”.

Well, yes, self assurance does grow with age.  Men typically through experience know more than they did as young men, with corresponding confidence.  Furthermore, many of them exploit the fact that they are no longer under the curve with respect to women in terms of SMP/MMP.

Unionen said the phone line, which will be staffed by a gender expert and a group of feminist politicians, comedians and scientists, is “about equality”.

There is more to the article, but I will leave it right there.

So where is this all headed?

    It looks like another way to use institutional force to drive away men that a women finds that are not a tingle generators.

    It is government endorsed man bashing, plain and simple. Curious that the hours of operation are only six, instead of eight. This may be countered by men in Sweden by crank calls. That would be funny.

    She comes in and starts about some Board issue. Then the dramatic pause. Waiting for me to jump in and mansplain what to do.

    Geez Boss, what you gonna do??

    Pin drop.

    She hasnt a fucking clue. And i aint bailing here out.

    Its hilarious. For months she was bitching for me to “mind my knitting.” So i did.

    Trust feminism to demonise an honest attempt to communicate, trust women to fall for it. Then trust women to want it both ways. Then trust non-cucks to force them to choose…publicly.

    Do we think that in matters like this we’re moving away from Alpha, Beta etc towards Cuck and Man?

    You don’t need to be an Alpha to work out when someone’s taking the proverbial*. You don’t need to be an Alpha to be an awkward cunt. Especially a ‘naive’ awkward cunt, “I was just doing what you told me to do…I am confused”

    With the move to over-promote women in the name of ‘equality’, we are sovietising the economy of the future. Middle management and above full of under-qualified, over-promoted women via quotas, with the lower levels populated by hugely demotivated (at work**) men who know when they’re being screwed. The soviet aspect being “They pretend to pay us, we pretend to work”

    (* = taking the piss)
    (** – they’ll go find meaning and/or fun elsewhere in life. That will not involve manning up for a wife)

    I suspect that HorseMan’s boss is headed to a future of increased medication of one sort or another. Or maybe she’ll sack up and start acting like a man by publicly showing appreciation for his advice. I mean, maybe…

    Now if she suspects that she only has the job via quotas…there is no happy solution. My guess is that is the case. Usually I’d expect one or other to be looking for another job, but who is more expendable? If you were his boss’ boss and your career depended on the department succeeding, just how does team-gyna weigh up against team-my-gyna?

    Men can be such awkward bastards when they decide to be. And they can decide that as a matter of principle, there’s no backing down from that principle.

Today I had person after person stop by and share how happy they were the election went the way it did, and just listened as they talked about all of it… Paid protesters, who was funding them, how H would have destroyed the country, etc. etc. these are not red pill people at all and they knew so much! I was surprised, people are waking up.

    One couple visiting the area shared stories of how at their local dept. of motor vehicles in CA, only one person at the counter speaks any English. One. All the forms are in Spanish. They had to ask for a form in English, and the clerk had to search for one they were apparently used so infrequently… :/

    I was faux-arguing with the owner of a small lounge Friday night. Nothing major, just that his wife had a key to my back door, not the side door, etc., and why didn’t he buy her better underwear? Dude weighs 260 pounds, was a high school state wrestling champion, and is a non-uniform combat veteran; his son is a disabled SEAL. We’ll call him Curt.

    Curt: “You understand this bar is 40 feet above the sidewalk.”

    BV: “Are you referencing the windows?”

    Curt: “And you are some basketball player white collar asshole who weighs, what? 185? 188?”

    (I was taken aback. I weighed 189 that morning. He actually guessed my weight within a pound, and he was six deep into the Jack and Cokes.)

    BV: “Hey, brother, I am so not pushing this. Just tell me when Cindy wants me to show up.” (This was banter about working for his restaurant-owning girlfriend, who provides free Thanksgiving to people; I volunteer and take the meals to the shut-ins, given my massive experience in land- and air-navigation.)

    Well.

    Meanwhile, my friend the Napster, who is a high school teacher and football coach, whose two oldest are going to a) the second best engineering college in the country; and b) the largest teaching medical school in the western world, had brought his new girlfriend, Audrey. Napster is destitute, and lives in three rented rooms in part of a house, because his wife terminated the family and owns half of his W-2. This is the midwest, Audrey’s Norwegian, Norwegian girls in their late 30’s have one objective function. Fortunately, the Napster cannot get pregnant.

    Audrey is a college professor, albeit in a disadvantaged locale (South Dakota). She’s a ‘Yote, not a ‘Rabbit. I’ll mansplain the different pronunciations of “coyote” another time.

    (Did I mention that with one glance a mature man blanches and says, “That’s the most fertile woman within 50 miles, DANGER CLOSE!)

    Audrey wanted an explanation. Well, she wanted multiple explanations. Lots and lots of explanations.

    “Why do you know who T.S. Eliot is, and can quote him?”

    “Why are you here?”

    “Why do you understand math?”

    “Why were you shot?”

    “How old are you?”

    This latter was the one she repeated 3-4 times. I think she was weighing me as a candidate for one of her girl friends, and modern girls are embarrassed if they date men outside the Amy Schumer Approved Age Range.

    BV: “Audrey,” BV Mansplained, about 25 fucking times, “BV does not talk about himself.” (Napster: “That’s true, he doesn’t.”) “BV does not go to bars to spill his candy on the floor. BV does not go to bars to get dismembered by Curt, there. BV does not do biography with attractive women dating my friends. No explanations, tally ho, target in sight, I have the field, cancelling IFR.”

    Audrey: “Oh, come on. How old are you?”

    BV: “I’ll trade you. You tell me how much you weigh, right here and now, and I’ll tell you how old I am.”

    Napster: “He’s not kidding. Let’s move on.”

    Mansplaining: a problem, as the Horseman notes, that disappears once a man says, “Cool, stop talking to me then.”

    Doesn’t sound like these are directly applicable, but might be of interest to others…

    My previous gas boiler had a couple of pop-up error studs (sitting under the pretty cover at the bottom). One was an exhaust gas sensor. While the boiler was just on pilot light on a windy day, a gust could blow some exhaust gas back down the flue and trip the sensor. The stud needed to be pushed in around 4 times a year. The symptom was that the pilot was alight, but the boiler wouldn’t trigger. There was a second pop-up but that never triggered. Might be worth a look.

    With modern condensing boilers there are issues if the water drain off pipe (just vents condensed water externally) freezes shut with ice. Don’t know if some boilers will refuse to light their pilot or just their main burners

    odds are its the sensor. my oil furnace does the same thing. exhaust outgases to the west into the prevailing wind. high wind it blows the purge cycle back down and trips the sensor.

    also could be the controller circuit board.

    last, needs a tech, but check the saturation of the injection ports. if too high then the sensor trips to avoid a hard ignition a.k.a. Boom.

    Oh do they ever. You try being a daughter in law or a pregnant woman! *pulls hair out in frustration*

    Women mansplain (explain things I am more expert on than they) all the time and it’s annoying. Yeah you saw on the news one popscience item misquoted and are now telling me all the really good research I studied for months is not accurate. Riiiight. Yeah you have a feeling that going outside more will cure my super complicated auto immune disorder. Riiiight. Yeah you’re telling me what my introvert kid need based on your experience with you extrovert. Riiiight. Yeah your experience as a divorcee will help my marriage last. Riiiight (no offense to Red Pill Girl, I don’t mean the kind of things you write, I mean the hags who tell me to displease my man). The list goes on and on and on.

    Men have explained things to me (and I have benefitted much), the only man who ever mansplained something did it just once and is pretty far up the autism spectrum, he did it out of enthusiasm mostly for the new thing he learned. Yeah your dietist just explained reactive hypoglycemia that my doctor dad threatened me with every time I wanted candy. Riiiight. Just the one time. I have found men much less inclined to mansplain and much more willing to share useful info. I have found those I considered friends (female) to actively withhold useful info, but mansplain many things.

    Why do they call it mansplain though? Doesn’t stroke with my experience.

    Questions like BV shared are shit tests. Fitness tests.

    She is sizing you up, putting you in a category

    Alpha must fuck/ worthy of a branch swing
    Pretty alpha….. not alpha enough to fuck right away, contuine to gather more intell or…..maybe alpha enough for my “bestie”
    Beta orbiter/ beta bucks…or good enough for her best friend
    Might as well be dead

    Women love the game. Frequently they’ll keep playing until you drop off into the might as well be dead category. Or their bestie texts them a photo of their cat wearing mittens. Often enough it’s not about you but how she is feeling at the moment so don’t take her bullshit personal unless she crosses some line if decorum

    Wonder if women explain things to each other I do.
    If so, ever resent it they would?

    – – – – –

    Yoda – it all depends … are you a threat to them? do they perceive you to be a threat to them? for any reason, real or imagined? do they like you? do they think you’ll make them look good? will you hurt their feelings?

    sheesh … i will not link to it, but i wrote out a list of things this woman needs to think seriously about before her divorce is final this week – i shot it straight, but i wasn’t mean. i was just honest. boy-howdy … it’s time to get out the popcorn. i’m just sitting back and watching all those women bitch at me for being soooo mean to their sweet friend … while sweet friend is emailing me, telling me she agrees and likes me, and is asking for advice.

    it is not even worth my time to go in and reply to any of the comments to try to explain anything because they’ve already decided i’m all sorts of things – lots of name-calling. but the truth is, i’m right. the ‘sweet friend’ even knows i’m right.

    i told my girls … let this be a lesson on when to keep your mouth shut. these women will hang themselves all by themselves … they’ll even pick out the tree and get the rope. it’s.freakin.crazy!

    Might be it. On mine…oil furnace, its brass and looks like an aircraft pitot tube. Senses the outgoing airflow during the purge cycle. Mine has to purge for 30 seconds then if senses slight negative air then injects fuel asnd trips igniter. Often because my exhaughst is parallel..walkout basement facing west, a strong wind blows down the vent and fools the sensors so the circiut board wont call for ignition.

    also there is a porcelian heat sensor. If it doesnt sense heat after 15 seconds it cancels ignition and stops fuel. Then it repurges and tries again. If my injectors are fouled stops a bad partial ignition.

    Last there is a flow sensor in the chamber. Little knob thing under the ports. It senses how much fuel is in the chamber. Once put in wrong size ports. All shiny and fixed but fucker wouldnt lit. Hand power, spark, fuel. Drove me nuts. Finally called tech. He laughed.
    Said without it it would have hard ignited and blown out all the internal workings.

    But this is a twenty year old oil furnace. Gas parts might look different but should be similar devices to control ignition. Every time i had problems it was one of theose three.

    The circulation fan you can pull off and bench test.

    P.s. always be careful w gas. Bigger chance of going boom.

    Pps. If i ever catch the fucker who removed the wood cookstove that was in here im gonna need help with the shovels. Saw pictures. Huge, massive firebox, cast iron, big cooktop.
    Who rips a campstove out of a 125 yearold farmhouse!!!

    “It is the precursor to getting dumped. I didn’t realize it at the time but, it got obvious later. I made the mistake of caring. ”

    The only testing I was aware of doing was always a precursor to sex for me. Maybe I’m weird, but maybe you draw conclusions from too small a sample.

    I basically fell for my husband the moment he advised me that the time had come to stop talking (I was explaining made up physics to him to see if he would notice).

    Ame:

    In direct response to the manosphere has sprung up some websites that seem to serve no function other than as “manosphere watchdog” sites, to report on, laugh at, and sneer at the excesses of the sphere. The basic tenet of these sites is that the manosphere is a collection of worthless men who talk to each other and commiserate over teh wimminz, and instead they should NOT be talking to each other and should be out there manning up and doing man things. Like their husbands. Or something.

    The good point they do have is that, yes, men do, not talk; and yes, men find the manosphere because they’re socially inept, and yes, sometimes we do blame teh wimminz for things that aren’t their fault. Some things aren’t women’s fault. Some things are men’s fault, things like too much talking and not enough doing, too much worrying about what others think of us, and generally being unattractive. That’s on us. (We hear that every day from every quarter including media, culture, church, government and everywhere else, and we NEVER EVER hear about women’s responsibilities in all this, but that’s another story.)

    What you have to realize is that, yeah, sometimes it is the man’s fault, and the manosphere is here to point out it isnt’ ALWAYS the men’s fault. But, well, the sphere watchdogs just can’t handle having men point out that, well, sometimes, it is women’s fault. Sometimes.

    Happyhousewifey,
    It may not be that my sample size is too small. It may be the difference in our point of view. For women, it is easy to find acceptance from men. for men, it is very much different.

    I skipped our darling Ame’s post so I had to go catch up on it

    Intially my kids hated me. I was way behind on the pyops game. Then reality set in over time and my children are now estranged from their mother.

    So yes your kids hating you seem like a legit concern.

    To turn the corner on things I rassled up the kids and took them to watch me take a polygraph about my marital fidelity. Once they watched me pass things started to go my way

    I left a comment at the selfappointed charmers site, but I doubt it will get through (moderated first). Pointed out her anger on behalf of another was a waste of energy, that simply stating her own views to offset Ame’s would leave the divorcing woman in question to take from it what she would. Charmer seems genuinely angry.

    Funny how equalists still feel women are unable to fight their own battles.
    (We are, but verbal battles with strangers online are not the battles we need others to fight generally)

    (This is not me fighting Ames battle, just me butting in because it’s fun)

    Fuzzywuzzy, be careful of a confirmation bias on not getting acceptance. DEFINITELY NOT implying you have one (wouldn’t presume to know so much about you), but if you did, it would be a great lonely shame, that’s all.

    Ton – you’re an amazing dad, and man, (and uncle). with help, kids can and do work through that, especially when given the opportunity and with help from someone. how that happens is individual to the children. i’ve found that children are usually harshest with the parent with whom they feel the most safe. they will rarely share their hearts with the parent they do not feel safe with – or any adult with whom they do not feel safe. for the ‘safe’ parent, that can become hard.

    One person has suggested that this is a union that is doing this. The men should pull their membership and form their own union. It is obvious that they have no interest in protecting male employees.
