I need to quote you a bit here, amazed. "I have the OP of this thread on mute I really don't know what he is saying" wtf? why bother expressing your freaking opinion on a thread where you are obviously not interested in what the OP is saying?
really? your screen name is amazed and I have to say it suits you. For the simple fact that you have amazed me.
" The foreskin contains sensory nerve receptors as are prevalent over the rest of the penis"
no freaking s$#%
So let me present the logical conclusion any sane person would come to after reading that line. You have sensory nerve receptors all over your penis! (provided that you have a penis of course
Does it hurt to pierce your ears? It's only skin! It's only cartilage!
Again, YES sexism on both sides exist. What are you willing to do to work towards stopping sexism on both sides of the spectrum?

The sad thing is, you ignore medical evidence.
Why do men, knowing the benefits of male circumcision. Fight against it. Give me your medical reasons behind pushing to stop circumcision.
Why do men, knowing FGM and male circumcision are in no way comparable, try to compare the two. To be able to compare the two, circumcision would have to involve complete or partial removal of the scrotum, the testicles and the penis. You can BET, that if that were the case, I would as well be against MGM(male genital mutilation) as I am against FGM(female genital mutilation). Circumcision, and FGM are in no way comparable.

I do not think that there is a wide spread "anti-male" institutionalization.
Women are no longer excempt from the draft in Canada or the USA. They passed these amendments to the relevant laws about 2 years ago. With very little fanfare.
And I agree on male circumcision. I did not circumcize my son, with the full cooperation of my husband who is. If my son decides that he would like it done later, based on the evidence available to him, I will support whatever decision he makes on it.
And most men don't think that institutionalized anti-female and anti-family stance are around either.
Judicial reviews all over NA have consistently found that most men who contest custody get sole custody. 70%. That a goodly number of men never want full time custody isn't the courts fault, nor is it a sign of institutionalized bias.
Most of what you are posting isn't backed up by the evidence.
That's about the only serious "instituationized" bias against men.
A large number of the men promoting these ideas have a significant amount of palpable hatred. This is different than most feminist because they have hatred about having to fight legitimate oppression.
