I do actually have a masters degree in mansplainomics from Mansplainia University in Houston, TX. The title of my thesis (non research) was “Explaining Mansplaining to Non-mansplaining Men through Mansplanations of the Definition of Mansplaining; A Mansplainomic Perspective” In it I use parts of microeconomic theory to develop a theory of mansplaining which shows that the relative societal value of non-mansplaining men accusing other non mansplaining men of mansplaining decreases in direct proportion to the inappropriateness of the accusation. The value equals zero when the accusation is totally inappropriate. In the thesis I suggest that the probability of the existence of a totally inappropriate accusation is so low as to essentially rule out this result (zero societal value). It seems I was mistaken.
