Stating verifiable facts that are inconvenient to the feminist worldview.
Feminists: Women only make 77% of what men make for exactly the same work! Oh the patriarchy.

Factual Person: No, they don't. that statistic is just for overall median pay of full time workers, and does not account for overtime hours worked, location, experience, degree earned, or even the field someone is working in. Women make less on average because men and women make different career choices, because believe it or not, men and women are different.

Feminist: Don't you mansplain to me! Facts and logic are just oppressive constructs to keep women down!

Telling a woman that she's wrong, even when she actually is.
Woman: "I'm not going to vaccinate my children, because that causes autism."
Man: "Actually, the study which suggested an autism link was a hoax, and the scientist who submitted it was disbarred."
Woman: "Check your privilege, you're mansplaining.

A word typically used to imply that the previous speaker is overly condescending and/or has a different way of explaining because he happens to be a man and the other party a woman. Usually, this is based in an over- or misinterpretation based on prejudice about the alleged mainsplainers intentions or on an inability to take constructive feedback. Sometimes it is used as an attempt to unfairly discredit the speaker or his arguments without having to provide counter-arguments. Typically, the mansplainer is simultaneously implied to be sexist or misogynistic.
Explainee: Women only earn 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. This is a grave injustice.

Explainer: That is a misleading statement. In fact, after correcting for factors like hours worked, experience, physical danger involved, etc., the differences is just a few percent.

Explainee (sarcastic): Thank you for mansplaining! I would never have thought of that with my tiny little brain!

A derisive and condescending term insultingly used by women when referring to a man that they are in a conversation with. The man's point is derided not because his reasoning is faulty or his evidence is unreliable; his point is derided simply on the basis of his gender.
"Thanks for showing me the screengrab that proves the video is fake. I was not sharing it because I believed the video; I was sharing it because I thought it was funny. You do not need to mansplain the facts of it to me. I don't care."

to delighting in condescending, inaccurate explanations delivered with rock solid confidence of rightness and that slimy certainty that of course he is right, because he is the man in this conversation
Even though he knew she had an advanced degree in neuroscience, he felt the need to mansplain "there are molecules in the brain called neurotransmitters"

A childish term used by feminists when they don't have a valid response to an argument. The adult equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and saying "lalala"
Rational person: if anyone is oppressing someone, it's you for trying to silence anybody with a different opinion.
3rd wave feminist: wow nice mansplaining you misogynistic pig.

Rational person: maybe you should seek psychiatric help for your aversion to the reality that exsists in front of you.

A form of character assassination, generally (but not always) used by women toward men, in circumstances where there is no other logical response to a given statement in an argument, except to concede the loss of said argument.
"Because he Mansplained Austrian Economics to me, his entire argument is invalid regardless of the merits of his statements"
