According to my girlfriend the only thing worse than mansplaining is manfusing:
When you already know something perfectly well, but some dude keeps spewing out random bits of misinformation until you're completely confused and can't tell left from right anymore.
@fribbledom oh tell her I am putting this on my pocket for next time my partner pulls that one off 😁
Sure, she already understood it, but did she understand it for the correct reasons?
... must... fight the ... urge to explain everything ... I know...!
In fact, I just deleted a much longer explanation here! So proud of myself right now!
I think the trick is to listen more than talk. Doesn't come easy but practice helps. (And a patient partner...)
That is evil, though. I do use it when I'm trolling trolls back. Which I should not do, but occasionally can't really stop myself from.
@fribbledom well, I understand mansplaining. But I claim manfusing is something that all people do (but necessarily on purpose) regardless of their gender.
Both words are probably gender neutral despite their name. I guess every single one of us did that before, hopefully unintentionally.
@fribbledom "Manfusing" makes me think of more "how Emrakul makes human centipedes".
(For anyone confused, this is a Magic the Gathering joke / reference.)
References to a lewd act.
@fribbledom Or alternatively "manfusing" is what happens when some guys are "making a train" in a hot weather and sweat starts acting like glue.
