  1. I see that I’m mansplaining, despite the fact that I have made the exact same argument to male academics again and again, and despite the fact that there is literally no reference to gender whatsoever in my piece.

    But hey, if you can dismiss rather than rebut, why not, right?

    • If you read the tweets around that one (going weeks back) you can see I’ve been agreeing with you. I think I’ve linked to every entry in this recent series positively.

      Mansplain was a joke about my own discomfort with my participation in this conversation that I can see wouldn’t scan at all in isolation. No offense intended but I’m sorry I didn’t type “rationalitysplains” like I originally thought to.
