A look inside America's current Pandemic, and how it affects different Genders.
Differences in Sex and Gender, and how each is affected by COVID-19.
is what a person identifies with themselves, whether that be conforming to society’s expectations on gender normativity or not. Between those who identify themselves between men and women, those types on the gender spectrum have been studied to how they handle the pandemic. Studies done on official pages such as WHO, have reported that men are 20% more likely to catch COVID-19 compared to women. Researchers have also found many reasons as to why that is. Women have been more cooperative when it comes to the rules of COVID, such as wearing masks, whereas men are more stubborn in that regard, and choose not to. There are theories as to why that is, and one of my own is that many men don’t like being told what to do, and rather enjoy being their own boss, while women don’t see the regulations that way, and prefer to be safe than sorry. COVID-19 has also become a topic for politics, and the more conservative side is leaning towards not taking proper regulations as opposed to the progressive side. Conservtive sides (such as republican) often time are what men lean towards as women tend to lean more progressively.
