Logical Substitution

Which quote below (or both) is sexist and which one is in defense of the opposite gender?

“My argument that men should be saved is that, despite certain imperfections, men are fundamentally good…”
“… and are sort of pleasant to have around.”

“My argument that women should be saved is that, despite certain imperfections, women are fundamentally good…”

“… and are sort of pleasant to have around.”

Which headline (or both) below is blaming the victim and which one is trenchant analysis.

Headline 1:

Inappropriate dress fuel rapists. Denying it only feeds misogyny.

Those who send their daughters out into the world dressed inappropriately must share the blame for gang-rapes like Woolwich.

Headline 2:

Britain’s wars fuel terror. Denying it only feeds Islamophobia

Those who send British troops to shed blood in the Muslim world must share the blame for atrocities like Woolwich.
