Yes, very serious, and not trolling.

Please quote from the original email explaining to me how it is sexist.

Note, I am not saying it is not sexist, only that I can't see it. If you show
something to me that I have overlooked I am more than likely to say "aah, I see
now", but I genuinely don't see what the problem is. Was it the language used?
If so, how? The allusions made? If so, what allusions? The use of perfume or the
implication that Debian developers are male? If so, can you explain a little?
