I think it is, a lot of the time. As another example, in college, my group of friends used to make fun of women who would wear tight clothes and go to frat parties in Boston and Cambridge, and wear makeup to class, and that sort of thing. (I fully participated in it, to be honest.) At the time, I, at least, thought they just couldn't be as smart as those of us who wore sweatpants and didn't always comb our hair.

It's not like there's never any mocking based on stereotypes of stupid men, but when men act stupid (for lack of a better word) they're often cast as *loveable*, like Tim Taylor in "Home Improvement", or Homer Simpson. Women acting ditzy or whatever just get either mocked or treated as purely sexual objects (if they're conventionally attractive) or with utter contempt (if they're not).
