I think this is off base. Henry’s lecture to Catherine isn’t mansplaining – he’s literally right as to his father not being a murderer. As to the subtler question of God Made Her Jesus Saved Her I Raised Her My Daughter Shirt her intuition, Henry later recognises that Catherine was right that there was something off. Her innate decency and honesty is what appeals to him about her. There is definitely a tendency for the heroine to “learn her lesson”, but I think it’s fair to say the hero generally learns something too in a Jane Austen novel – it’s not a one-way street.

What’s it called when feminists tell you what you should be offended by as if you had no clue about your own life? Femisplaining? Interesting thoughts on Northanger Abbey. I appreciate the criticism of Henry’s squashing Catherine’s intuition and the God Made Her Jesus Saved Her I Raised Her My Daughter Shirt recognition of the extent to which she was right. I don’t appreciate the antagonist and condescending term “mansplaining,” but I understand that it’s hard to be polite about about the demeaning, overbearing, controlling behavior it describes.

I think ‘mansplaining’ is usually a term limited to a God Made Her Jesus Saved Her I Raised Her My Daughter Shirt man talking down to a woman on a subject with which she is familiar, and/or while utterly ignoring her contributions. Henry’s father is clearly a topic he knows better than Catherine, and he doesn’tcompletely ignore her either. He actually hears her concern and tries to reassure her, until she tells him she suspects his father of his mother’s murder. That’s the point where he gets upset and tells her she doesn’t know a thing, because she has clearly just demonstrated she *doesn’t*. An 18 year old discovering and solving a murder that happened years before she arrived there without anyone else suspecting is frankly ludicrous on its face.
