why does sexism mainly affect men and boys...?

Because there's laws in place (thanks to beta males seeking female approval). And females are unfortunately the majority of the voting bloc and most of them vote with their emotions. So politicians have to cater to them while, at the same time, throwing men under the males.

Sexism affects both males and females, but mostly women have dealt with sexism all their life. At the end of my 6th grade year (1969) they made an an announcement over the intercom that starting in the fall "girls can wear pants to school". In 1974 I wanted to take woodshop" girls were not allowed to take woodshop.

"why does sexism mainly affect men and boys...?"
Because women have legal protections in place that make it illegal to discriminate against them, whereas men do not. This is why ALL MEN are still obligated to sign up for the Selective Service at age 18 or face penalties by authority of the State. This is just one example to show how it is only men that face legal / systemic discrimination at the hands of the state. There is of course, much more than this.
Moving out of the legal vein, men are no less subjected to social and personal discrimination than women are. Just looking at our Establishment media will show how men have become the only option to be the fall guy, or the buffoon, or the killer, or bad guy, or whatever. The thing is, women are much more sensitive to being portrayed poorly, and will say so. But men understand that whining is unmanly, so they just suck it up. Doesn't mean the sexism happens any less.

Women have long-range things on their minds, like child rearing and families. Men are 365-day a year hard-drive sex enthusiasts.

Does thinking hurt, Mick?
I propose we start a little crowd fund for Mick's special education. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
