A guy mansplained labia to a woman after she mocked this outfit and the takedowns were brutal
Mansplainer of the week award goes to this guy who took it upon himself to explain the ins and outs of the female anatomy – specifically, the labia – to this woman who mocked this ridiculous outfit.
Jezebel writer Ashley Reese took this piece of ‘clothing’ to task, suggesting “the red Here For Fun Bodysuit (also available in an equally cooch-defying black) may result in a trip to the gynecologist.”
And you don’t have to be a woman to see exactly where she’s coming from. Except this chap, well, this chap wasn’t happy. Not happy at all, in a comment on the piece highlighted on Twitter by Emily Pratt.

And here’s what he had to say.
Well that’s her (and every other woman) told.
Here’s what the writer of the piece, Ashley Reese, had to say later.
Easily the most deranged comment I've received since writing for Jezebel. https://t.co/U289JQ93jq

everyone saying the “as a short man” bit at the end is a twist but I think we all knew from the first sentence is that this is a dude with self esteem issues

“Man who doesn’t know what a labia is needs to talk about the size of his dick”
Well that’s it! I’ve seen everything !!

And here are just a few of our other favourite responses.
I thought I’d seen it all but mansplaining labia is a whole nother level

This feels like the sophomore album from the dude who wrote the series of tweets explaining vaginas.

If I took all the drugs I ever took in my life at once and wrote 1000 replies to this article I could never come close to this.

Wow, it just keeps getting worse as you read it. All the way to the end.

I can’t believe I made it past “when I where pants” but the absolute peak is “who the fuck cares” smack in the middle of an internet comment long enough to have chapters

Labia-defining Twitter is the best Twitter.

Some people, however thought the guy might have a point.
Idk why y’all hating, what he said is perfect. Don’t focus on what doesn’t fit you, focus on what does. This girl looks great in the suit – if you don’t, that’s too bad for you but don’t make fun of the girl wearing it or the suit itself. Bye

But most people agreed with this person.
I will believe that this suit “fits” this women when I see her walk one single step without it sliding into her body like a hot dog settling into a bun.
