Mansplaining Mania Spills Over in an Advertisement on Father’s Day!

I was thinking that the whole mansplaining discussion was buried when wifey walked in brandishing the June 19th TOI. Delhi-dwellers would remember that the front page of the newspaper had been hijacked by a certain deal-snapping company that presented the sign that’s usually placed outside the baby-changing rooms (no, babies aren’t changed in these rooms, […]
