This man said women should be feminine to attract men – our 15 favourite takedowns
The internet has never been short of men who think they have the right to tell women how to dress, speak, think, work and, well, live. There’s even a word for men who tell women stuff they already know – even if the men themselves don’t know it that well – and that word is “mansplaining”.
One man who looks like he’s no stranger to the odd mansplain is self-described diet coach, Matt Stephens who decided to tweet a little bit of – now deleted – unsolicited advice for women.
As charm offensives go, it’s a lot less charm than offensive, but his little sermon didn’t go unnoticed, and the backlash came swiftly.

A promiscuous man is not a masculine man.
With every woman he sleeps with, he loses a piece of his masculinity.
He will never get it back.
Women love masculinity. It has value to us.
Protect it at all costs. You'll have no women to choose from because you're a douchebag. https://t.co/0mGYYiuUc0

Mansplaining femininity. I love this song

This is bullshit, Matt. Femininity isn’t defined by how many times a woman has sex. There’s no basis in your claim whatsoever. Also, women don’t exist just be be appealing to men. They are independent, individual, human beings. They are not your sex toys.
