Stating verifiable facts that are inconvenient to the feminist worldview.
Feminists: Women only make 77% of what men make for exactly the same work! Oh the patriarchy.

Factual Person: No, they don't. that statistic is just for overall median pay of full time workers, and does not account for overtime hours worked, location, experience, degree earned, or even the field someone is working in. Women make less on average because men and women make different career choices, because believe it or not, men and women are different.

Feminist: Don't you mansplain to me! Facts and logic are just oppressive constructs to keep women down!

Telling a woman that she's wrong, even when she actually is.

Man: "Actually, the study which suggested an autism link was a hoax, and the scientist who submitted it was disbarred."
Woman: "Check your privilege, you're mansplaining.

A word typically used to imply that the previous speaker is overly condescending and/or has a different way of explaining because he happens to be a man and the other party a woman. Usually, this is based in an over- or misinterpretation based on prejudice about the alleged mainsplainers intentions or on an inability to take constructive feedback. Sometimes it is used as an attempt to unfairly discredit the speaker or his arguments without having to provide counter-arguments. Typically, the mansplainer is simultaneously implied to be sexist or misogynistic.
Explainee: Women only earn 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. This is a grave injustice.

Explainer: That is a misleading statement. In fact, after correcting for factors like hours worked, experience, physical danger involved, etc., the differences is just a few percent.

Explainee (sarcastic): Thank you for mansplaining! I would never have thought of that with my tiny little brain!

A derisive and condescending term insultingly used by women when referring to a man that they are in a conversation with. The man's point is derided not because his reasoning is faulty or his evidence is unreliable; his point is derided simply on the basis of his gender.
"Thanks for showing me the screengrab that proves the video is fake. I was not sharing it because I believed the video; I was sharing it because I thought it was funny. You do not need to mansplain the facts of it to me. I don't care."

To explain something in an unnecessarily long winded way, so as to dominate the conversation, and to make statements that are not based on facts, assuming that people will believe and agree with him because he is male.
"The recession was caused by the government because it spent too much money and people should look after themselves and not expect society to look after its members or its community... ad nauseam.
...Therefore its all womens fault."
