Please see the attached screenshot.

1. Gedit with Courier 12 as the monospaced text font.
Notice the context menu uses the same monospaced font.

2. For comparison, Kate with Courier 12 as the monospaced text font.
Notice the context menu uses the system's proportional font.

I'm seeing the same bug as well, I've also noticed if I change the font type and font size from preferences, font type and size of the context menu also changes. I've attached a screenshot showing the bug.

IMHO this is a bug in new GTK -- in unity-greeter's password field, if you right-click it it also inherits font styling from the field.

Seems a feature rather than a bug, in any case feel free to open a GTK report (upstream would be better)

  [ Andrés G. Aragoneses ]
  * Ambiance: support zebra striping for treeviews This is a rework of
    Andrea's patch (committed in r220:
    themes/trunk/revision/220) that doesn't introduce a visual glitch on
    progress bars inside treeviews (because of this visual glitch, the
    r220 patch was reverted in r234:
    themes/trunk/revision/234 and bug LP#945430 had to be reopened), and
    therefore allows us to have a theme that implements zebra striping
    treeviews when applications choose to use them via
    `self.treeview.set_rules_hint(True)` API. . (LP: #945430)

  [ Lars Uebernickel ]
  * Fix some theming issues in gedit (file browser toolbar and context
    menu font). (LP: #1242984)
  * gedit: make search occurences label readable.
