    I agree; if someone is acting like a boor, call them out on it.

    Say that behavior is arrogant, or self-entitled, or that that man is saying stupid things about women's reproductive biology.

    The term "mansplaining" is pejorative and insulting.  

    Now that you know, you are free to continue to be insulting, or conduct yourself with respect for all people.
