Can someone explain to me what is mansplaining about the following dialog:
She:  "Why is it called the Forth Bridge?"
He: "Because it crosses the Forth Estuary."
She: Where are the first, second and third estuaries?"

Silly question asked, silly question answered politely, stupid question asked.  What on earth is mansplaining about that?  If women don't want to be told the answers that they are too dumb to work out for themselves, why ask?  Ladies please enlighten me.

Oh, I dunno: I'm not a pre-schooler (at 57) but I do find they have a certain, uncomplicated charm.  :)

Has anyone else noticed how films are introducing the homosexual angle in many films these days ?A couple of minutes in to a film last week & two men were kissing passionately in front of their adopted five year old son.Trying to portray these perverts as a normal happy family is sickening.
I don't know about films but the TV advertisements are pushing this agenda.

Adverts are designed by advertising agencies who know that the general public are generally shallow and fickle,
so pitch their stuff at the lowest common denominator. . .

The best film that makes this point is "Crazy People" starring Dudley Moore.
