  •  This is exactly what sexists say (0+ / 0-)

    This is exactly what conservative sexists say about sexist jokes regarding the supposed weakness and emotional instability of women.  

    They say "ahh, you have no sense of humor".  They say "It's a joke, lighten up!!"

    Women are right to ignore that defense and insist they be regarded with the same respect as men.  Likewise, men should be held in the same high esteem as women.
