Definition from Platform24:
Mansplaining kavramına Türkçe karşılık arayışı ise hâlâ sürüyor. “Erilleme”, “erkekleme”, “erk-açıklama”, “erksist açıklama” gibi karşılıklar dolaşıyor ortalıkta.

Example sentence(s):
  • Türkçe’de “erilleme-erkekleme” olarak anılmaya başladı. Anlamı ise özetle şu; erkeklerin kadınlara, -aslında sırf kadın oldukları için- hemen her konuda, “öğretici” bir tavırla, sürekli bir açıklama yapmaları ve kadınlar üzerinde bir hegemonya kurma çabaları. -
