But that's not sexual harassment since it was something you wanted/accepted.

The way she worded it seemed like it was random, so - unsolicited still?

Anyway. Unsolicited dick pics (or flashing irl) are fucking gross, thanks for coming to my ted talk

Because it's just not the same thing. Whitesplaining or mansplaining are when an ignorant person in a position of privilege believes him/herself to be qualified to explain to someone, with no such advantages at birth, how they should feel and think about their situation. Megyn Kelly or Piers Morgan for instance.

Doesn't matter if it is used in the wrong contexts often. I personally think if you are a male, you should always be open to listening, while discussing with a female about how they experience the world, instead of being confrontational and acting like you can definitely comprehend everything from the point of view of a woman.£
this is valid

that said, i have to be VERY careful on Twitter who I try to disagree with on Twitter, cuz it's happened more than once that I've contradicted or clarified a female blogger or critic and they start a full on flame war with me and accuse me of "mansplaining."

it's not good

Yeah, that’s what I was trying to get at.

I'm glad I never really got into Twitter.

It's almost as toxic as Facebook now.

I've gotten into Twitter arguments before but now I just try really hard to restrain myself. Same with Facebook.
