> Sorry I was unclear. What I was trying to get at before going on tangent is that trying to separate "sexism" and "dirty jokes" in this context is meaningless. Both use sexual language that in a professional conference would sound the same.
No, it's not meaningless and no, sexism doesn't necessarily involve sexual language. Which is exactly the point I made in that other comment I had linked to.
Oh, and by the way, I don't consider puns about "big dongles" to be a big deal. It's more like picking one's nose: sure, you don't do it in public, but when it happens, why make a lot of fuss about it?
