Response to SunSeeker (Reply #45)

50. That's not what mansplaing is

No, mansplaining is being condescending specifically to women. Nothing in the OP's post even hinted that he was speaking specifically to women.

Second, your point is not in response to his point. You keep saying "my point isn't that people don't get it's satire, my point is that it's simply not funny." Beyond what should be the obvious which is that funny is in the eye of the beholder and it's not up to you decide what's funny for others, there are in fact thousands of people who have criticized this skit by taking it at face value and not realizing that it's satire. Just because you may have realized it was satire (which you didn't find funny as you've reminded us over and over again…) doesn't mean that everyone else did. The OP is responding to the existence of many, many responses to Fey that took her words literally and thought she was actually calling upon people to do nothing but eat cake. Go do a little google search if you don't believe me.

Not everyone who disagrees with you and explains why is mansplaining. To use that term when it doesn't apply is just going to create a boy-who-cried-wolf dynamic.
