If your real question is, "are there people who are prepared to characterize any insult to a woman as de facto
sexism?", then the answer is "sure, of course". Just like there are people who are prepared to characterize any objection to the rankest sexism, racism, etc. as PC/SJW/whatever run wild.
But if you really believe the practical answer is "yes, any insult directed to a woman will be seen as sexism", you move in some very strange circles.
As far as strange circles...well, Sty-Fo.
I think most "right minded" folks are very ready to believe any personal insult of a right minded woman is indeed sexism. Even worse, some might not believe that, but they know the charge of such is a highly effective tool in 2016 America. Different standard if you're Anne Coulter or someone similar. The practical answer is that a man does risk these charges for making a personal insult to a woman.
As I indicated earlier I too believe the correct answer is, "No" but I'm pragmatic enough to realize that's really just not the case in how things will often get framed. If you don't think this is really the case I believe you are the one in strange circles.
