Eric said his mom should stay in the kitchen (Because she was a woman) and like other stuff. Was Dylan sexist in any way? What caused Eric to view girls like objects?

Well the thing with Eric is that he seemed to want to look tough and exaggerate to do so.
Yes, he was a teenager with anger issues, but a lot of what he said could be seen as an act to look ''cool''.
For exemple,if one was to take a look at his journal, they would probably conclude that he was a racist (mentions of the n-word and other things) yet in his blog (you can find a version of it online) he states that racists are stupid and irrational. He's a hypocrite, something that he acknowledges in his blog too,I believe.
People write in their journal for different reasons: Eric seemed to write in it when he was angry and Dylan, when he was sad. When you're angry, you don't always say things you mean.
That doesn't mean that Eric was any less suicidal than Dylan or that Dylan was any less angry than Eric, it's just that that's the version of them we see in their journals.

For Dylan, I don't believe he's been found of saying anything sexist,but some witnesses claim that he called the black kid he killed the n-word before shooting him.
Of course though, it wouldn't be suprising if they both were actual sexists considering their age and the time.

Considering that people wouldn't hang out with them because they would strike nazi salutes during bowling, I think being edgy was just a part of their personality, and they didn't truly mean any of the racist, sexist, and homophobic things they said. It was their own little way of communicating with one another.

It was the time period too, I know it is a dumb excuse that no one likes, but it is true.

They wanted to be edgy and seem bad ass, maybe as a defense mechanism? Who knows?

In the BT Eric does talk about how a woman should go make him a sandwich and his mom belonged in the kitchen where women belonged... but he also seemed to really love his mom.

I think Eric loved and liked his family more than Dylan liked his. I don't think Dylan was sexist but he did put women on a high pedestal, and I feel like if she sneezed the wrong way he'd be like "well I thought she was my true love but her sneeze is so dumb, f her. I will be alone forever"

That one VHS tape of Eric trying to kidnap a girl/keep her tight as a prank. Probably thought it was an easy victim compared to a male.
