since it's the subreddit you disagree with most, you must logically believe that
the first comment had no underlying sexist undertones at all. there aren't many Reddit users that have a weird problem with women "drawing attention" to their genders, aka even mentioning it when there's a good reason to(an AMA about women scientists in a field in which women are vastly underrepresented.)
there was literally no racist undertones to the second post. No problems at all with comparing black people to animals and "tribesmen".
there's nothing wrong with stereotyping women multiple ways(all are bad at driving, all take advantage of men, all are constantly drunk, all are always fucking with their makeup cuz omg women just want to look pretty!), and it (at the time) getting a positive response indicating that multiple people feel that is an acceptable way to talk.
there are literally no problems at all with stating that "The only value I see in a woman is her naked body".
Dismissing and trivializing discrimination and stereotyping is a-ok.
what a shitty person(plus the 180+ people who upvoted you) you must be.
