45. Mansplaining is explaining with condescension, assuming the target is stupid.

This whole "explanation" is basically about making the statement that the people who didn't find the "stay home" (and slave rape) lines funny are just too stupid to realize it was all satire. That is a pretty arrogant attitude, and tends to be found among men who think it's cool to look at women as sex objects (the reason Playboy exists) and think women are too stupid to understand things.

Folks that didn't find those lines funny get that it was a comedy skit. We're not stupid, thank you. We just didn't find it funny.

Fey seemed way too sincere about imploring us to stay home for it to be funny, particularly since she is not known to engage in street protests herself. And does anyone really think a joke about raping slaves merits a hardy guffaw?
