Perception of sexism, like perception of beauty, is as much in the eye
of the beholder as it is objective.  Since charges of sexism are so
freely and recklessly thrown around, unless they have an objective
basis, I would laugh at them.

Women have been "abused."  They therefore have the right to imitate
their "abusers."
