Uhhhh.... By "VD" you mean "Valentine's Day" right? In this context, the first meaning of VD that came to mind was a completely different one that totally makes sense in this sentence. I had to read it about four times before I realized what you meant...

If I were inclined to be insulted by vagina jokes at all I would find this far more insulting towards men than women quite frankly, since the joke essentially reduce them to brainless, vagina-seeking missiles.
I've been offended on behalf of men before, though not terribly often, and I don't think I've seen any in media sources. The only time comes to mind was at work, when somebody left a mess in the kitchen area, and a female co-worker emailed to the company and said that everybody needs to clean up after themselves (which is a reasonable statement) and "Just because your mom, or wife are not around to nag you, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it!" I found that comment really irritating. Granted, most of our company are male engineers, I thought it was rude to make it sound like all men in general are incapable of cleaning up their own messes. If she had at least generalized it and said "spouses" rather than "wives" that would've been better. (I almost certainly know who left the mess because he's done it before when I've seen him leave it, and yes he is male. But his maleness is not the reason he leaves messes. The reason is that he's an antisocial workaholic a-hole)
