CNN host mansplains to Bill Cosby accuser how she could have avoided being raped

Today in victim-blaming wrapped up in an outrageous load of mansplaining: In an interview with Joan Tarshis, one of the latest women to come forward with rape allegations against Bill Cosby, CNN’s Don Lemon had some advice for how she could have avoided the whole thing: just use your teeth as a weapon.

Watch a professional mansplainer try to mansplain street harassment to a woman on CNN

I didn’t actually know that a dude mansplaining street harassment is one of the single most annoying things in the world, but thanks to this CNN discussion between Steven Santagati and comedian Amanda Seales, now I do.

Today in mansplaining: GOP Rep. tells CNN host ‘Carol, you’re beautiful but you need to be honest’

Today Congressman Todd Rokita (R-IN), who was trying in vain to explain his party’s nonsensical shutdown of the U.S. government, mansplained big time to CNN’s Carol Costello, who wasn’t buying any of the bullcrap.  Of course because no Republican likes to be challenged by a mere woman about their current political tantrum, his only response to her tough questions was, “Carol, you’re beautiful but you need to be honest as well.”

Ladies and gentlemen, “How to deal with a mansplainer starring Hillary Clinton.”

Step 1: Raise your hands up like, “Whoa you guys you can’t be serious.”

Step 2: Make sure to emphasize your points by counting with your hands so that simple tea party Senator mansplainer understands.  Mansplainers like visuals.
