I didn't vote because I don't want to contaminate Keith's science, but I think it is possible to make jokes which are disparaging towards women without crossing the line into misogynistic. Like people make gay jokes which do sort of mock gay people without being hateful and/or homophobic.

Then again, maybe I'm just splitting hairs.

On the other hand, Pat attempting to defend himself against the accusation of being misogynistic by basically saying women and stupid, emotional and inarticulate...and none of that was in the context of "joke".... well.
