A message to women from a man: you are not "crazy" If you can get past the rather patronising title (do women need a man to tell them this? Really?) the content of this article in the Huffington Post is actually very good.

  1. I actually think the title of the HuffPo article is OK... I didn't so much read it as mansplaining as just a counter voice to all the male voices saying "you are crazy" - after all the "gaslighting" discussed can be done to us whether or not we agree with the offender that we are crazy/sensitive/irrational etc. so it is important to be challenging the gaslighting behaviour not just the internalisation of its message.
