Are All Men Fixated on Their You-Know-Whats?

Is anyone surprised that Herman Cain has “suspended his campaign?” With two women accusing him of sexual misconduct and one claiming an affair with him, he seems to have been busier than all the other political philanderers.

3. The modern-day Alex Forrest option: Hack into his computer and steal his cell phone.

At least you know, that in this day and age, option 3 wouldn't be perceived as a big deal. I mean, just like guys photographing their penises, doesn't everyone do it?

This article was too well done for the title although the title was attention getting. Men are not all fixated on anything but I am fixated on my future wife and my children.
1. I am appalled that Internet wire communications are not regulated by the FCC.
2. I am incensed that in the United States no right to exclusively control original art exists.
Neeley v NameMedia Inc, et al (5:09-cv-05151)(11-2558)
Should address both of these issues as I DEMAND Google Inc and everyone else to STOP broadcasting my nude art.
BTW. Nudes not of my penis but mostly female figures.

I am dumbfounded by this mindset as well. I don't know why men think that women, especially strangers, are dying to see what their equipment looks like. There's been a big stink in my city over the death of a homeless man; without getting into the details of the event itself, he was known around town for starting fights in a local coffeehouse as well as getting into the elevator at the train station with women, and then once the doors would close, he would expose himself. When I mentioned the latter fact to a man while discussing the guy's overall behavior, he brushed the guy off as a "nuisance." Quite frankly I find that sort of behavior offensive. Consider the mindset of a woman who has been sexually assaulted - I don't think that some strange man exposing himself to her in the close confines of an elevator would be a "nuisance" - I think she might consider him more of a threat. Maybe some immature women find it funny, but I just think that sending a photo of genitalia is both immature and indicative of self-absorption.
