The thing is that the Ladies are less likely to punch you in the nose if you say something asinine. Men over the years learn when not to mouth off.
Yet there are always exceptions.

Here is a sexism story (non diving).

Many moons ago I was working for a big guitar company who hired a female VP away from another music manufacturer. They were to meet at some country club for a round of golf. All the other VPs were old guard males who had brought along their wives. The new female exec brought her clubs and started hanging around for tee time. One of the other VPs said "We thought that you were going to go shopping with the wives".
She shot par and the men glowered.
