When a man tries to explain to women the correct terms for their anatomy, and gets it wrong, and then doubles down even when challenged by a gynaecologist.

No words... and I have referred to my unborn as a fetus. If for no other reason than because 'baby' is a term used in lieu by forced birthers. The correct word is fetus.

He went for the trifecta in mansplaining mansplaining.

That guy is so far up himself, he's in danger of turning himself inside out.

Love it. He has a point, though- the correct name for his body is a person, but, common usage refers to him as a d*ck.

Christ on a bike. That's got to be one of the funniest things I've read in a while.

And it's not like he even stops or backs up. He just goes all in. Total d*ck

I read the gyno's Twitter thread on it yesterday and it cracked me right up.

Finest Dunning-Kruger example I've seen in a long time.

And at the same time, a really, really sad example of how white men who have no idea what they're talking about don't just mansplain, but believe they have an absolute right to control conversations and to speak without being challenged.

... and go on to by become a PhD candidate. Merit?

That would probably be, as pointed out in the OP's link, his "Certicate in Editing" :laugh:

I was wetting myself (not literally, just metaphorically - in case Paul hops into this thread) reading that on Twitter yesterday.

My favourite response was one of a picture of a Volvo, just to clarify what a vulva was not. Helpful :rofl:

What an idiot.

And I’m glad someone is getting the word Vulva out there more. It needs to be used more.

"The word Vagina has two meanings, a genus one and a species one."

Holy hell

Didn't know our genitals were a species in their own right. Thanks for explaining this to me Paul.
