Mansplaining (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)

Delete[edit]

  1. There's an article to be made here, one that cites scientific studies about how men and women interact, how arrogance helps men but hurts women, and so on. This article is instead a brief history of "incidents" of mansplaining that does little to defend or debunk the idea. Indeed, several of the "incidents" mentioned are not necessarily mansplaining -- and so our critique of actual mansplaining itself is also weak. This is a poor defense of a potentially-useful concept and poor attack on a potentially-toxic problem. The previous discussion was 6 months ago, and the article has not improved.

  2. Voted Keep last time. This time, you got me with: "This is a poor defense of a potentially-useful concept and poor attack on a potentially-toxic problem". Reverend Black Percy (talk) 12:47, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

  2. Keep - David Gerard (talk) 18:42, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
  3. Keep. Christopher (talk) 18:27, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
  4. OP has not bothered, two weeks on, to rewrite the bad parts or to defend his delete reason. Keep. Flannan Isle (talk) 16:05, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
    My reason is literally that RationalWiki, six months on, has not bothered to rewrite the bad parts of the article. :P FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 17:14, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

  5. If the alleged problem with the article is that it could be good but it is badly written, then the solution is "improve" not "delete".--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 18:39, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
