Re: Haters are going to hate
"Or maybe it was downvoted because it wasn't funny, which, as far as I can tell, is a pre-requisite of a joke."
If you take a few seconds, apply some common sense and read it for what it is, it kinda is funny.
Its clearly not a sexist remark, quite the opposite as it is making fun of the kind of people who would make this kind of statement.
As you rightly pointed out humour is subjective - just because you dont get it doesnt mean its not funny.
