An Australian politician has called the coronavirus pandemic a “gendered crisis,” arguing that the Chinese virus impacts women the most drastically despite the facts.
“COVID-19 is a gendered crisis. Nurses, nurse aides, teachers, child carers and early-childhood educators, aged-care workers and cleaners are mostly women,” wrote Australian Senator Mehreen Faruqi in a Twitter post.
“They are on the frontline of this public health crisis and carry a disproportionate risk of being exposed to the virus,” she added.
Faruqi, a practitioner of Islam who describes herself as a proud feminist and Pakistani migrant, also posted a rant of herself whining on the Senate floor about how the coronavirus is sexist.

Even though Faruqi is complaining about women “on the frontline of this crisis,” the actual numbers show that it is men who are dying in disproportionate rates due to coronavirus.
The data shows that coronavirus is likely impacting men by at least a 2-to-1 margin rather than women:
More than 10,000 people have died from the novel coronavirus, with men seemingly hit harder by the virus than women, according to early data.
A study out of China involving 99 cases found that two-thirds of the patients who required hospitalization were male, while data out of Italy suggests 70 percent of the country’s COVID-19 fatalities involve men.
As of Friday, Italy’s case count had surpassed 41,000, with over 3,400 fatalities. The country, which has the second oldest population in the world behind Japan, has reported that 87 percent of fatalities involve citizens over 70. And overall, more than 70 percent of COVID-19 deaths have involved males, according to Istituto Superiore di Sanita, the country’s health agency.
“The honest truth is that today we don’t know why COVID-19 is more severe for men than women or why the magnitude of the difference is greater in Italy than China,” Sabra Klein, professor at Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, told The Hour. “What we do know is that in addition to older age, being male is a risk factor for severe outcome and the public should be made aware.”
Italy’s findings match those of the medical study on the 99 patients in China published in The Lancet on Jan. 30.
“It is an eye-catching discrepancy,” Anjana Ahuja, a science writer, said at the time. “A picture is emerging of the 2019-nCoV as a novel pathogen that disproportionately affects older men, particularly those with existing illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.”
Feminist social justice warriors like Faruqi will exploit any opportunity, even if it is an unprecedented public health care that has thrown the entire world into a mass panic, to push their bigoted anti-male agenda.
Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger
A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.
Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.
Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.
The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.
Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.
If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.
Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.
“Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
