TWO men have sharply rebuked each other for enjoying a sexist joke by raising their hands above their heads and slapping palms.
Tom Booker told the joke at the pub to his friend Martin Bishop. The joke involved a woman, a gymnastics horse and a punchline that included the word ‘feminazi’.
Booker said: “The second I told the joke, I felt so guilty that I immediately held my hand up to be hit, because I deserved to be punished.
“Mike is pretty woke, so I knew he’d definitely oblige, and he did – enthusiastically.”
Bishop said: “I was really shocked by Tom’s insensitive and offensive joke. I don’t like violence, but I definitely felt that hitting his hand was justified on this occasion.
“I even made sure to do it high in the air in front of everyone, to really humiliate him.
“It hurt me a bit, too, but it was just a timely reminder that misogyny hurts everyone.”
