Yes, of course men are important, there is SO MUCH WORK TO BE DONE ACROSS THE BOARD NO ONE IS ARGUING THAT — but this comic isn’t about you, for once. Please, just listen for five minutes. That is all we are saying. For the love of God, please.
The very term “mansplaining” is offensive to men, clearly. I’m definitely not a man, and I vividly recall the first time I heard the word, thinking how derogatory it sounded.
So, if you want them to listen, a better term ought to be created. Or use no term at all, since this one is clearly divisive.
