And, recalling the PM’s controversial claim Muslim women in face-covering burkas look like “letterboxes” or “bank robbers”, he wrote: “Boris was right.”
Dr Morris, a former statistics lecturer at St Hilda’s College and now an IT consultant, later removed the posts, The Oxford Student paper reported.
He also appeared to have deleted his Facebook account.
‘SEXIST AND INAPPROPRIATE’
An Oxford insider said: “It’s a shocking case of women being objectified and told how they should appear by men. It’s wrong.
“You’d think someone of this intelligence would have the sense to keep such offensive opinions to themselves.”
Students dubbed Dr Morris’s comments “sexist and inappropriate”. One said: “You want to be taught, not ogled.”
Dr Morris made the comments on Twitter in a discussion with an Oxford researcher about a lack of tradition at black tie events.
He wrote: “It seems people these days have no idea what it means — men turning up in lounge suits, women turned up dressed like hookers. Yes, I’m old.”
He also referred to transgender people as “the genders of flake”.

The uni has already been criticised over lewd balls organised by the students’ Piers Gaveston society.
A University spokesman stressed it was “committed to fostering an inclusive culture which promotes equality”.
He said Dr Morris “is not an Oxford University or college academic” and added he now “delivers computer programming training with the IT services department two to three days a term”.
