Exactly, it depends on if the comment is meant seriously.
Well, that's one person who doesn't think I'm a raging sexist.

However, I can understand that if there's a prevailing culture of this level of humour it can be discouraging and upsetting for women - or for men, if that's the way the humour is directed, and let's face it, there are far more dubious comments from men to other men in the photo threads than there ever are from men to women!

So, if the moderators are receiving enough complaints that they think there is a prevailing culture of sexism (humourous or otherwise) and not just isolated train-wrecks of threads or posts, then we all need to look to how we respond and joke and maybe dial it back a bit.
