I'm pretty sure he meant it as a joke and I took it that way with how he wrote it. And no I don't agree with you. Griton it would be impossible to prove to me you laugh at anything your to busy trying to correct people all the time! If he intended it to actually be rude to woman then I'd agree but he clearly didn't. Crying and reporting it like kids is a little much..lol, come on that was funny!
Well, another bunch of spiders is obviously redundant, as for the female characters... women are just weaker and there are simply more male heroes in the world
Not really, no. It was the utter definition of trite: sarcastic or not, it's an overused sentiment lacking originality or freshness. Not funny, and anyone who thinks so is only encouraging blatant sexist behavior. Maybe you don't think so, but it sets an example that others may pick up on, and I personally feel that our community should hold itself to higher standards. If you want to make jokes, you're going to have to try harder to be actually funny instead of using a subset of the community as a target of the joke. Regardless of whether you personally agree or disagree with the sentiment of the joke, that type of joke creates an environment of alienation, and if you didn't realize that before, hopefully you do now and can hold yourself to a higher standard.
