Because Xander is on the receiving end of the “big joke” comment, he’s the only one who seems to think that it wasn’t a nice thing of Buffy to say.
And the emotional blowout of it sucks.
And I mean, it'd be nice if he took the opportunity to learn and grow from it, but he kind of doesn't really. Until Xander and Anya start dating, it doesn't feel like his attitude towards women progresses all that much. I still hadn't forgiven him for the way he took getting rejected by Buffy. Not to mention how overly involved Xander is with Buffy's sex life all the time, like after a while you just wanna grab him by the shoulders and shake him and say YOU'RE NOT ENTITLED TO AN OPINION ON EVERYTHING.
He innocently believed that having sex with someone meant that they liked each other. He was naive.
Still, you'd have to be blind in one eye to not see how pretty non-committal Faith was to having sex (laugh, damn you, it's funny). And as a boy who constantly likes to tease girls about how their dresses make them look like hookers, or how a girl being a taxi is only locker room talk, eeeeehhhhhh, Xander should have known. Also the casual slutshaming just further proves my point that Xander kind of needed that. Dude was kind of a dick.
