It's the perfect crime. Woman claims to be antivaxx and nags male partner into also being antivaxx then she goes and gets vaccinated before COVID hits their area when Queensland border restictions finally lift. No one suspects a thing until the stats in this artlcle turn up showing it's a widespread happening.

Well, ok then. Seems like as good a reason as any.

/ I suspect a lot of people are self-selecting and letting their comorbidites do some selecting of their own.

Show up the liberals and treat yourself like Jesus intended!

Take estrogen. The libs don't want you to! Also take spiro to get rid of that satanic testosterone.

Also shave your legs, wear chastity cages, plug your bottom, and wear the pink striped knee high socks! Show those libs!

Correlation is not causation. Early on in the plague, it was widely reported that China had men dying at 1.5x the rate of women, thoroughly tested in China, at a time when only China had enough cases to compile such data. As the plague spread, those numbers weren't holding up anywhere else, where there was either a difference of a few percent, or none at all... but there was nothing wrong with China's methods or data - it WAS right, but only in China. So what happened? Turns out, there's a cultural thing in China where a few percent of women smoke... and more than half of men. Unsurprisingly, if you spend decades damaging your lungs with cigarette smoke, you'll substantially more vulnerable to a disease that kills by damaging your lungs.

The lesson here is: If one gender is more vulnerable, but only in certain places, that doesn't mean men are default more vulnerable. It means something that men tend to do that women tend not to, is in play. Figure out that something, and you've found your risk factor. You may or may not be able to address it (it's not like someone who's been smoking for 20 years stopping cold turkey now is going to recover in a month).

It was engineered to do that by Chinese scientists as a recourse for their excess of men.

Cause we are men. We're ready to die. You try living with that biatch. I mean, her antics were cute when we were 25 and you could bounce a quarter off her tight ass. Now that butt looks like two midgets rasslin' in a tater sack and now she's just an old Karen who wants to pick an argument with every retailer, restauranteur, and me. Covid is more appealing. Oh sweet darkness. As I lay dying on this ventilator there she is arguing with the doctor and demanding he force feed me horse dewormer and bleach and that they put me in a tanning bed. Oh God please sweet mercy. I will drink the bleach if you will only pour it in my eyes first. Sweet escape. SOS.....

It works both ways, for that matter. A recent Herman Cain Award has $HUSBAND getting his shots on the sly, his antivax wife collecting her Hermie, and him remarrying six weeks later. $WIFE2 has a pro-vax frame around her profile picture.

Got a horrid spouse? Get vaxxed on the down-low.

Women are more likely to seek medical treatment (and have their symptoms ignored, but that might not apply to COVID) than men are.

If my husband had taken the approach to his health that a lot of guys do ("It's nothing, I'll be fine") when he started feeling pressure in his chest, he might very well be dead by now. It turned out that despite eating well, never having smoked, and exercising regularly, he got his family's crappy cholesterol genes and was walking around with a 95% blockage in an artery.

A full two weeks after my broken finger wasn't getting much better, the doctor told me "You're the reason married men live longer. Because your wives make you go to the doctor."

And I love the stats on lightning fatalities - it's around 80% men, every year. Men are more likely to have jobs working outdoors, but the overwhelming majority of these cases are during leisure activities like fishing or golfing. Men are just far more likely to think "Oh don't be a pussy" or something.

Women also have less to prove.

And we're more likely to be in "helping" professions that require vaccination and masking as a way of life.

Just my womanly 2 cents.
