The Glossary

Words in modern English, with which internet users should be familiar:

douche bag: You know the type. Nerdy guy with the sexist T-shirt who just loves telling strangers how much he knows about physics, which he is clearly an expert at since he was third in his science class at high school.
mansplain: The remarkable ability of a man to step into a group of women conversing on a subject with which they are quite familiar, and then to explain the subject to them as if they were five years old, without ever listening to anything they say.
bimbo: A derogatory term for any woman who acts and behaves precisely as she is expected and exhorted to do by most western societies.
feminist: Anyone, male or female, who believes that women have the right to equal opportunities and human rights.
