Using clips from Hillary’s testimony at the Benghazi hearings, Zerlina over at Feministing has put together a marvelous tutorial starring Hillary Clinton. For example, here are the first two steps in “How to deal with a mansplainer”:
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.

Mansplainer: A man whom by virtue of the authority and privilege vested in him by society feels entitled to preach or explain how the world works. Bonus, if he is speaking to women, whom he perceives to be naive and ignorant, about problems and concerns with which women have real life every day experience, and the man has NO fucking clue what he is talking about. This is usually done in a patronizing insensitive manner.
