I've found this thread here:https://www.kli.org/tlhIngan-Hol/2003/October/msg00117.html, but since it's a bit old, I don't know if we have more recent information about this.

I haven't heard any such confirmation, and I strongly doubt there is 
supposed to be any connection between *be'*/woman/ and *-be'*/not./ 
Sexist jokes are not Okrand's style.
