The internet can be an incredible place sometimes, and that's exactly what the wonderful people of Twitter proved when one man tried to mansplain the difference between vulvas and vaginas.
When the Guardian shared an article aptly titled Me and my vuvla: 100 women reveal all, one man called Paul Bullen couldn't help but throw his 20p in by replying "The correct word is vagina."
The correct word is vagina.- Paul Bullen (@paulbullen) February 10, 2019
Now, the article - which wasn't pulling any punches when it said reveals all, prompted all kinds of responses, but thousands of people were drawn to Paul's comment, claiming the paper had gotten it all wrong.
When another woman told him: "No it's not. But thanks for the mansplaining on something you obvs know nothing about," he didn't stop there... oh, no.

That's an incorrect use of the word mansplaining. :-). Not that I want to legitimize the term, but by its own definition it requires more than just having just a man who is explaining something. Even if some in the audience are women.- Paul Bullen (@paulbullen) February 10, 2019
After going on an epic rant which included Paul admitting he knew that the term vulva was technically correct, he received an absolute schooling from the people of Twitter, and it was nothing short of brilliant.
Oh look, a man who doesn't know what a vulva is because he's never seen one.- Katie (@KatieDid927) February 11, 2019
Hi, I am a gynecologist and an international expert on both the vagina and vulva. These are vulvas. I wrote this post with a handy Venn diagram to help people separate the two! Enjoy :wink: https://t.co/nMFVeVHkya- Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) February 10, 2019
