Men are also more likely to be MAGA idiots too. Coincidence?

It is very common to split up data based on many different demographic categories.  So, besides gender, there might be race, age, salary, location.  "Men" might be a bigger proportion than any of the other ways to slice the data.  In context, it is the right way to phrase it.

This makes sense to me intuitively. The higher an individual's salary, the more ass pennies can pass between their cheeks and into general circulation. And sadly, salary correlates with gender.

It also makes sense when you think about how the most likely people to leave the labor pool during the pandemic have been women.  So less likely to be spreading around the workplace, at least.

"Volckens said the virus also spreads more easily among those who speak at louder volumes."

This explains why Americans were so badly affected.

In GA, the women have been leading the numbers for a long time, but the men's numbers have been climbing lately.  Early on it was non-white women, then white women, then non-white men, and lastly white men.  But since the vaccines arrived, while all the groups still report cases and deaths, the two groups with the largest growths are white men and white women.

But, the counties with the most accurate reporting are urban areas, and perceived as minority hotbeds, so out in the sticks, COVID is still not considered a threat   No one wants to admit their county leaders are lying about the numbers.

No, it is a sympathy ploy.  As in AH AHH  AHHHH SNNEEEEEZZZEE!  Expected response is "Oh honey!  Are you coming down with a cold/the flu etc!  Here, sit down and let me make you some tea and toast.  Of course i will cut the crusts off!"

Ok, I have to explain this one to the ladies...
Ladies, imagine in addition to the pair of boobies you have, you had another pair right between your legs...how would you sit?
Keep in mind that said units actually get affected by heat.

Most men are the "grin and bear it" types so just make do, and lack sensibility that way instead of trying to find long term solutions. If this was a female issue, someone would probably come up with a Ball Bra.

Hmm...*googlegooglegoogle*

I have the problem of occasionally sitting on my balls. It's not an everyday occurrence, but did happen enough that my co-workers would crack up when they heard me "oomph" when it would happen.

That implies that men are better than women at things other than spreading Covid. Say, what's the phone number of HR where you work, subby? No reason, just curious.

Not to mention whole states like Florida (completely full of shirt) or Nebraska where Covid deaths are only reported to the state if you feel like doing so.

Yes, but this study ignored economics. It had a mixed population speak, sing, or play an instrument and measure the amount of virus particles released. It was more intended to see what activities are safe, particularly for performing arts. Talking is safer than singing, talking quietly better than loudly, and men spread more particles than women due to larger lungs.

It's a shame when we can't see past stuff.
Would you like scientific data to support that statement? Anthropological writings? Psychological? Medical?

Just the difference in time it takes a man to go to the hospital during a heart attack compared to a woman (on average) should give you an idea about that mindset.
(Three times the amount of time IIRC).
