For something to be ironic, it has to be obvious to the listener that you don’t mean what you’re saying — that, in fact, what you believe to be true is the exact opposite of the words coming out of your mouth. Try as you might to prove in every other way that you aren’t, you know, actually sexist, you have one major problem: telling a sexist joke, even ironically, hurts women.
And nothing says “I’m not sexist” quite like hurting a woman just for a laugh.
