Academic mansplaining 

Hi scholar.social

This is something that the men on this instance need to think through very clearly

We have a lot of very smart and qualified and intelligent men who are often actually teachers on this instance, and so if we're not careful and proactive about thinking on this topic, we might slide into doing this easily

(I'm sure I've done this myself, if I'm honest)

Academic mansplaining 

As a pro-tip:

If you get called out for mansplaining or something like this, the worst thing you can do is double-down and try to defend yourself

It's okay to just say "Oh, sorry! I'll do better next time"
