He is just disappointed at your pointing out the "masculinist culture" 
in a place where he expected more maturity.

Yours is mostly SJW-speak and I'm also not fond of it, I'll explain why.
It is a double-edged blade.
In this case your definition is technically correct, we all know what 
"suck it" implies.
But this highly polarizing approach to life and people can (and does, 
especially in its dens like tumblr.com as mentioned) slippery slope into 
full blown hate and reverse oppression, which is equally bad.

I'm not impressed by your reaction here, first thing you do is a blatant 
strawman logical fallacy and then proceed to attack him on his personal 
values as a person without even asking to clarify his position first.
He just posted a single short sentence, for heaven's sake.

This is EXACTLY an example of slippery slope into blind hate rage as I 
said above, and exactly why this kind of polarizing categorizations and 
statements should be avoided at all costs in a serious and sane environment.

We should really not jump at each other's throats on a moment's notice 
like that, especially not in a software development mailing list.
