Its a silly argument as you allude to, but I got to wonder why a defense lawyer would bother with it. No judge in his right mind would accept such an argument. I suppose though that a sexist male jury member might still believe in it.

Really though, this defense should be tossed in the ash heap of bad arguments that should result in your being laughed out of court.
