"But if heaping scorn and ridicule on those who dislike the babe posts is the real motive, as Analog Scott suggests"
Not what I intended to suggest. Poking fun is what I was suggesting. Parody was what I literally said. I see a pretty wide chasm between poking fun/ parody and Heaping scorn and ridicule

on whether one is the teller of the joke or the butt of the joke, pardon my idiom.
one's ability to take a joke and have fun at their own expense. IMO the reaction to Chris's "babe" posts are far more telling than the posts themselves. Why do those posts touch such a nerve and yet so many genuinely mysogynistic posts get a free pass and even worse, majority agreement?
I see a substantial amount of mysogynistic assertions about young attractive classical musicians that in many cases fester into absurd conspiracy theories about art and business that have no basis in reality. I think the mysogyny has to run pretty deep for that to happen. And it happens quite often and even worse, I see these absurd ideas being accepted as fact by a pretty broad group of classical music fans.
As I mentioned before, a number of these musicians are friends of mine and one is very close friend. So yeah, I do take a particular pleasure in watching Chris call this stuff out without folks even realizing they have been called out.
I suppose it's the folks that don't get all that and really think Chris is being demeaning to women with his "babe" posts that are the ones that are perhaps innocent vicitims of Chris's pokes. But I really can't see how one can mistake the content of Chris's "babe" posts with actual mysogynistic content.
