Say what you want as long as I agree with it. Freedom of speech as long as I approve of it. Humour is acceptable as long as I find it funny. Opinions are good as long as they match mine.
Wow we sound tolerant dont we. I thought I read somewhere that while he admitted to making a joke he does stand by some of what he said. Regardless of that its his opinion and we are free to agree/disagree as we please and consider him right or wrong based on our own noggins. If he cant work with girls it is his problem, I am sure there are women out there who dont want to work with boys too, I aint gonna go nuts over it.
If it was ment as humour then it doesnt appear to have been understood by the audience. If it was ment as opinion then he is entitled to it but his is but one opinion. There seems to be such a rush to be offended.
