As the coronavirus death toll ticks up and some states ease their restrictions, a new study suggests that men might be more likely to leave their face coverings at home.
Men in the U.S. report less intention than women to wear face coverings, especially in counties that dont mandate wearing them, according to a paper authored by researchers from Middlesex University London in the U.K. and the Mathematical Science Research Institute in Berkeley, Calif. This, the authors say, suggests that making face coverings mandatory has a larger effect on men than on women.

An improvised mask isn’t going to protect you.
Burkas look better on woman
It’s a macho thing. We all do it.
We’re just smarter:
Women are more easily manipulated and harder to educate.
The other day after I read that Blacks had a higher death rate from the virus I started to count the Brothers walking around without face masks. Within a 4 block area of our small town I counted a total of young blacks, 20, of which 4 were wearing masks!
Could be that women generally vote Democrat which means being told what to do by those in power, to be a follower, to be part of the pack. Men generally vote right of center which means personal responsibility, less dependency and being a leader. Neither is a full truth but certainly could be a factor.
Leave my face coverings at home?
My dear fellow, I don't even have a face covering. Never had one.
“Men in the U.S. report less intention than women to wear face coverings”
I only see two genders here. What an insult to the other ones.
a male virologist got it on a plane because he was too stupid or vain to wear goggles.
Yep, I am a man, and I have never worn a mask. And I won’t.
We dont need no stinkin masks
Do death tolls ever tick down?
Much ado about nothing, and this is important? Looks like the author stayed home and had too much time on his hands to post such inane drivel.
I am properly ashamed of myself. Not!
Similar to when people say “add it up”? Is “add it down” possible?
The reality is it’s largely a liberal/conservative thing rather than a male/female thing.
I don’t understand the problem. Fauxci, The Skarf Queen and the Surgeon General told us all several weeks ago that masks do not help the general public at all and we should not wear them and we should certainly not hoard them. We should leave all masks to the professional medical community because us common folk have no need for them. They do us no good whatsoever.
I have been following that advice since. Now they say if we don’t wear masks we’re all gonna die!!!
Such a contradiction in such a short amount of time tells me that 1) they don’t know what the hell they are talking about or 2) they have an agenda divorced from scientific research.
