Yeah, that phrase "Mansplaining"..Ugh. Since I hear that one used a fair bit by people who consider themselves to be politically correct, sorry, Socially Aware, you would think they might see that as just a little but mysandrist, or at least insulting to men. But no. I guess it's okay to equate "Man" with "Condescending jerk".

Glad I am not the only one.
I mean I still don't understand how it became so popular anyway because frankly, I might be a little bit behind with the phenomena.

Same here. xD
"Totes", "LOL, IDK" said aloud "Oh my god" unnecessarily overused (I use this for teasing too, though)...and.

I don't use the word, but I don't think that's what it means.

I think it's for times if a guy, say, writes a post about how girls aren't moody, irrational pms-ing, manipulative sex kittens and gets taken more seriously than the hundreds of posts written by girls on the same topic.

I think the word sounds silly but that's what I've taken it to mean the few times I've seen it used. I don't think it means the person is necessarily trying to be a jerk, I think it's like when a young well-off person goes on a trip to say "help people in Africa" and finds out that not everyone is grateful and that maybe the kind of help they're giving isn't solving what the real problem is and people are kind of peeved about that even if the young person had a genuinely nice thought in their head that sparked the action.

idk, stuff ?

Hmm..the definition of Mansplaining that I read somewhere went something like "Explaining something to somebody in a condescending and/or insulting way". YMMV.

This isn't a phrase so much as a meme- I'm SO SICK of the Chuck Norris jokes and memes, about him being the baddest, toughest thing ever, he could kick everyone's ass, blah blah blah. Enough already!

Yeah, the only time I found them funny was when a classmate of mine was running for school president. He managed to use his last name in most of the jokes (his last name is/was Wurth, so you could work it into a lot). Among other funny-as-hell campaign ads.

I had a friend say 'legit' today in a non-humorous manner. It was like being slapped across the face. I trusted her, and she betrayed me.

Sorry my name has swag in it...

Dont understand the hashtag everything because i dont tittwer, i also hate girls who talk like a "valley girl". Yolo is definitely annoying but what I can't stand the most is when people say or yell 'MURICA.
