There is at least the concept of "reverse sexism", you can read more about
it in the Internet.

And the CoC Frederik linked above has a paragraph about it which backs
Rory's statement (for this specific CoC at least) :

COMMUNITY NAME prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged
people’s comfort. RESPONSE TEAM reserves the right not to act on complaints

   - ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and
   - Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go
   away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you.”
   - Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial
   - Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive
   behavior or assumptions

Geekfeminism has their definition here:
