The idea that we can't just outright criticise sexism, that we have to ask nicely and politely for people to maybe perhaps consider not doing it, minimises sexism as an actual problem. It makes 'don't be sexist' sound like a special favour to ask of people, rather than a basic requirement for acting like a decent human being.
