Based on my experience (which is by no means scientific), the women I've seen who had that attitude had it because the revolver has been portrayed as a lesser weapon only fit for women who can't handle a semi auto. They were offended because the people (men) "helping" them pick a gun automatically assume they can't handle a semi auto and therefore recommend a revolver and as as if it's a lesser weapon.
