(Humor.) Re: “Mansplaining and Womansplaining”
Yeah. I’m a little done with womansplaining as well.
Mansplaining is merely useless – it won’t accomplish anything even if it should. Womansplaining is useless and false – but often succeeds even though it shouldn’t. 😉
Let’s compare them:
Womansplaining: “There is no bell curve. Everyone is equal. Everyone has equal potential. And everyone that’s unsuccessful is inhibited by others’ bias or malice.”
In other words, “I want my dead weight offspring to have a chance at achieving devolutionary and undeserving equality with his or her genetic superiors.”
Short term, female, empathetic, feels.
Mansplaining:“There is always a bell curve – and a third of people are dead weight, and its genetic, and women decide who they mate with – so it’s their fault.”
In other words, “I want my tribe to be free of dead weight offspring so we have a chance at achieving at defeating competing tribes who seek to defeat our genes.”
Long term, male, analytic, reals.
That’s the net of it.
Understand the speaker’s bias, and you understand his brain structure and you understand his reproductive strategy – and that none of that is under his cognitive control and everything he (or she) says is just the persona-puppet following instructions of one’s genes.
Really. That’s the entirety of the left (Female cognitive bias) right (male cognitive bias)
