It was a (very dumb) joke. Designed to get people irritated and talking, which it did. I don’t know the specific circumstances but I’ve heard a similar ‘joke’ – “Amen is sexist! They should have Awomen too” as a way to make feminist women look dumb since the 1980s when there started being some changes to Methodist hymnals for inclusion.

Don’t mention is unless you’re going to womention it too. OF course you get a recursion problem:
men -> women. Women still includes men so wowomen, wowowomen wowowowomen and at each iteration of finding men, affixing the prefix wo- would soon overload storage systems.
Ok. I’m done. Yeah, it’s always been a dumb set of jokes
