The problem is with the quantity of cameras and film you were carrying. Please don't blame Mexico for their regulations; the officer was doing his job. It was unfortunate that he referred to your sex rather than using a more ambiguous term such as "solo traveler" but, if it was me, I don't think I would hold it against him.
From the following website:


"Don't bring anything that obviously looks like you're planning to resell. For example, 5 laptop computers. These items will get heavily taxed or confiscated

Items for personal use will be allowed, new or used, but only in quantities that are commensurate with the definition of 'personal use.' If you are carrying large quantities of anything, or if the Customs Inspector believes you are trying to commercialize your goods, then you may be interviewed further."
