in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?
it's one of those seemingly harmless jokes we're confronted with regularly. I see a big difference to the other options. I don't have any problem with the "social skills" option.
and it goes one level further - it's not "only" discriminating women, but it's discriminating those who complain about discrimination by pretending that all feminists are aggressive. especially after the incident where a woman heard a bad joke in a conference audience and put a photo of the guys on twitter (which I think was a really bad idea).
just like I don't generalize men all being sexist, I don't want feminists being generalized as aggressive.
like it was said in a similar discussion months ago, it's also about context. in a group of friends this might be funny because you know how it was meant.
