the argument that since the air conditioning temperature in office buildings was designed to accommodate men in the 1960's, whose average weight was around 160 lbs, is sexist towards women because men's average weight is much higher now, 195 lbs on average, doesn't take into account that the average weight of a woman has increased too. the average weight of women is currently 160 lbs- the exact weight that the ac's were set to accommodate in the first place.

Yeah, if anything it is sexist against men now because the temperature hasn't been lowered further to accommodate the increase in male obesity.
