Most of the other folks who have come in to post have been saying, "dude, did you really want to defend a sexist cartoon as a good thing?".

One of the characters in the cartoon makes a sexist remark, and the other character puts him down for it!
And if you cannot see the difference, you should consider taking some classes. Especially before you go around starting storms in teacups like this one.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
