Well, the BuyBull itself is horribly misogynist.
You'd expect jesus to be the same with the rest of the fairy tale.

In the first century C.E., God-fearing women were privileged to minister to Jesus. (Luke 8:1-3) A woman anointed his head and feet during an evening meal in Bethany. (Matthew 26:6-13; John 12:1-7) Women were among those to whom Jesus appeared after his resurrection. (Matthew 28:1-10; John 20:1-18) After Jesus’ ascension to heaven, the group of about 120 that met together included “some women and Mary the mother of Jesus.” (Acts 1:3-15) Many or all of these women were undoubtedly in the upper chamber in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost 33 C.E., when the holy spirit was sent and Jesus’ disciples miraculously spoke in a number of different languages. (Acts 2:1-12)
Both men and women were among those who experienced the fulfillment of Joel 2:28, 29, as quoted by the apostle Peter on the day of Pentecost. For a time after Pentecost 33 C.E., Christian women were favored with the gifts of the spirit.
In his letter to Christians in Rome, the apostle Paul speaks warmly of “Phoebe our sister,” recommending her to them. He also refers to Tryphaena and Tryphosa, calling them “women who are working hard in the Lord.” (Romans 16:1, 2, 12) Although these women did not hold appointed positions in the early Christian congregation, they and many other women had the blessing of being chosen by God to be associated with his Son, Jesus Christ, in the heavenly Kingdom. (Romans 8:16, 17; Galatians 3:28, 29)

Actually he did have women among his disciples. He did not include any in the group of 12 disciples who had traveling with him during the three teachings cycles he made through Judea and Israel. But that only about 1/3 of his ministry time. His female disciples included Mary Magdalene and Joanna, who were also financial backers of his ministry. The sister Mary and Martha (and their brother Lazarus.) As well as his own mother.
It is true that during the times when he took a group with him to assist on his travels, go ahead of him an announce his coming, take care of all the behinds the scenes needs, etc. there were no women included.(Although the disciples who were married were allowed to have their wives with them if they wanted according to Paul.) Probably because having a mixed crew like that would have opened the door to possible adultery and fornication. Not having a mixture of the genders would reduce that risk.
Jesus never refused to associate with or to teaching women. There are examples where he had crowds were the women would have numbered in the thousands. There are examples where he had one on one teaching sessions with women. But he did not include them on the three to four month long teaching circuits that he made each year of his ministry.

Nope. Not even close. Nobody had female disciples at the time, silly, but Jesus did have many female followers.

He had women as disciples. But the apostles, who lived and traveled in close proximity with him, needed to be men.

Actually contemporary evidence indicates that many of the early leaders within the movement were women. Their influence was covered over by the later male-dominated leadership.

I guess you mean "apostles". The Bible lists several female disciples of his (Lk 8:2-3).
