 “Hepeating” Is the New Cousin of “Mansplaining”

 “Hepeating” Is the New Cousin of “Mansplaining”

At this point, you’ve probably heard the term “mansplaining.” If you haven’t, it’s basically a man explaining (sometimes interrupting) something to someone, usually a woman, about a subject they’re already familiar with in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.

Anyway, an astronomer and professor from New Hampshire named Nicole Gugliucci just coined a new word that’s a cousin of mansplaining…it’s “hepeating.”

In her tweet about the new word, she says the definition is when, “a woman suggests an idea and it’s ignored, but then a guy says the same thing and everyone loves it.”


And yes, it actually happens.
