Over sensitive. Sure. You've just been told that something that is an immutable part of who you are: female, minority, foreign - is inherently less. No, that isn't painful at all.

It's the death of a thousand paper cuts.

    You stopped too soon! Come on, add to the list!

    Nerd, man, too young, too old, too small, too tall, too skinny, too fat, too weak, ...

      Yeah, totally. I scored a "mangina"; still waiting to see if Anonymous Monk goes for "faggot" to pick up the perfecta.
      ...extremely offensive sig...

    You were told no such thing, the joke doesn't even mention women

    None - I refuse to acknowledge the term man hours, you patriarchical pig. But I have many person-hours. And let me tell you.....

      I can't say I really believe that you think this, but okay. What then is the meaning you derive from the sentence you quote?

        Its a poll option, men and women and dogs are I, whomever is hanging on the poll

        I dog refuse to acknowledge the term man hours, you patriarchical pig. But I have many dog-hours. And let me tell you.....

        It makes fun of people incapable of carrying on a normal conversation who turn every syllable into a tirade on something or other (gender neutral language..)

        In no way does it say women/minority/foreign are inherently less

        That its screams worthless-female-feminist-trope to you speaks to your bias, not mine, I don't live in a patriarchal society

        If I said look at that casserole would you say I'm prejudiced against poodles? Even if its 80% macaroni and 20% cheese?

        Yeah, that last one got away from me -- feel free to now claim I called you worthless poodle hanging mac and cheese casserole

        That wasn't me, but FWIW, it seemed clear to me that the original joke was against feminists, and I am both amused and offended by the sexism shown by some complaining about it here in seemingly assuming it was against females.
