Sexist lemons

The Wiki entry on jif lemons is rather sexist:

And perhaps because of its shape, the housewife felt less guilty about not using real fruit, although what she was actually getting was lemon juice plus E223 (sodium metabisulphite) which acts as a preservative.

If was looking up the meaning of a jiffy (1/60th of a second) for some pointless reason. 1/60th of a second? Who decides these things?
