That’s the best answer I’ve Ever read!! What’s mansplained to mean?


Hahah, thank you.

Mansplaining is a tendency of some men to assume they know more about a given topic than a woman and, without being asked, invite themselves to try to explain something to you. They usually think they’re being helpful or they’re trying to show off, but the effort just comes off as condescending, annoying, etc.

For instance, I was standing at an elevator in a building on campus and another grad student literally said to me, “if you push the down button, it’ll take you to the ground floor.”

  1. Yeah, asshole, I know how an elevator works.
  2. No, asshole, I didn’t ask you to explain it to me.



T – Bagh, this question. Here’s more shit: my Jansport backpack that I’ve had for almost six years now that has never failed or betrayed me, sun-showers, avocados, stargazing, The Big Lebowski.

I – Another time I felt jealous recently was when Sir went to a munch and blah I want to go do fun social stuff with him.

C – Since Sir flew back home, right at the end of August.

K – I hate when I get mansplained to.

L – No siblings.

E – Two for hearing, two for aesthetic purposes. 

S,L,U,T (tee hee)


Ho ho, clever.

S – I scratch under my chin when I’m just sitting and listening in class and stuff. And I play with my curls if I have my hair in a ponytail. I’m a fidgety girl.

L – I’m an only child. Can’t you tell by the ego?

U – Gah don’t make me count texts I’m bad at math and I’m bad at talking on the phone so this question is just too much to handle.

T – Answered this. I’ll say five people instead this time. My mother, my grandmother, Sir, my uncle and my platonic soulmate, Drew.

D, I, P, S, Y. (I didn’t mean to spell out any particular word, honest.)



D – I always feel weird answering this question because it’s kinda both but it’s mostly girls.

I – Answered this, but another time I felt jealous recently was when someone in my cohort got to go meet someone in my field that I like and I had to go to work instead.

P – At the risk of sounding like a disgusting hipster, I like a lot of music. Recently, I’ve been listening to Purity Ring on my way to work and a playlist that includes RuPaul, Metric and Lil Wayne at the gym. So, uh, variety?

Y – Answered this, but I’ll add that the public transit system here is awwwful and there’s no good pizza or Chinese food or sushi or agh get me to a real city NOW.

S – 

How about all the letters in your blog name ID thing? T-H-I-N-K-V-Y-N. I think that’s all of them… :)


Aw, cute.

T – I don’t consider people to be things, so the five things I love unconditionally are pizza (always good, even when it’s bad), sleeping in (not to be confused with its terrible cousin, oversleeping), lifting (makes me feel powerful, or at least makes me want to be), reading for pleasure (some of those required readings aren’t too fun) and gin (it’s my drink.)

H – A girl in my cohort, last night, at a party.

I – There’s a fun little something I was supposed to go to this coming weekend and now I can’t. I’m jealous of all those involved.

N – I treat my friends with respect, I try to be available, etc. Basically, how I’d like to be treated.

K – Hate is a strong word, but let’s say misogyny. That’s definitely in the hate category. And racism and heteronormativity and all that mess.

V – Run a marathon, live with Sir in a certain city, self-actualize gracefully.

Y – This new place is all right. It’s just a little slow for my taste.


A – If I’m in love.
B – Who the last person I talked to on the phone was.
C – How long it’s been since I’ve kissed.
D – If I have a preference for boys or girls.
E – How many holes I have in my ears.
F – Give me any options, like ‘hot or cold?’
G – The last person I said ‘I love you’ to.
H – The last person I hugged.
I – The last time I felt jealous, and why.
J – How old I am.
K– What i hate.
L – If I have siblings.
M – If I forgive betrayal.
N – If you want to know how I treat my friends.
O – If I like my school.
P – What kind of music I like.
Q – What the last party I went to was, and when the next will be.
R – For me to tell 10 of my curiosities.
S – 2 habits.
T– 5 things I love unconditionally.
U – How many texts I send daily.
V – 3 big dreams.
W – An idol.
X – If I’ve done something I regret very much.
Y – If I like my town and why.
Z – Ask any question you want.

Not sure why this is “unholy.”

But I do these whenever I’ve got something due and then one creeps across my dash.



I just about lost it when I saw the sketch.

“I went to school for eight damn years. So don’t you dare look me in the face and tell me that you fell on a toy firetruck, you monsters.”

Also I was at a party last night and it got super quiet as I said the phrase “anal beads are really stressful” but whatever I’ll stand by my principles.
