UKIP is to target seats where the electorate consists solely of men.
Announcing the move on his LBC radio phone-in, leader Nigel Farage said UKIP was challenging both major parties in all-male constituencies across the country.
He added: “We’ll leave Labour and the Tories to fight it out in the women-only seats. Meanwhile, I’m sure the Lib Dems are very strong in those constituencies where everyone is a homosexual.
“And of course the all-male constituencies have more votes in parliament than the all-female ones. So I don’t understand why all the parties aren’t doing this.
“But then again, I am very clever.”
