Men Now Too Scared To Perform CPR On Women As 'Weinstein Effect' Takes Hold
study in partnership with the American Heart Association reveals truth
Since the Harvey Weinstein scandal opened the pandora's box of the cesspit that is Holywood, it seems the man-hating 'witch hunt' post-Weinstein is showing some collateral damage.
According to a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health, data no reveals that men are likely to think twice about putting their hands on a strange woman even in life or death situations.
Welcome to the 'Weinstein Effect'
Another study in partnership with the American Heart Association has also revealed that women suffering cardiac arrest in public are far less likely to receive CPR from a random male passerby than a male would.
Squarker.org reports: While common wisdom would have us believe that this same culture is at least making things almost universally better for women everywhere, a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health may call that into question.
With data now revealing a possibly fatal byproduct of this current male distrusting climate. Because while men are certainly thinking twice now about putting their hands on a strange woman, that apparently is also holding true in situations that are less than ideal.
Should he help her and risk the lawsuit?
With the only possible explanation for this difference offered up by involved researchers being a belief that strangers now likely find themselves increasingly reluctant to remove a woman’s clothes let alone touch her breasts. Both of which are required in successful female CPR in most cases.
What this means in a practical sense, is that women have likely already died unnecessarily and will continue to do so, because we have allowed a culture of fear to form around the concept of male to female touch. In a life and death situation where every second counts, even just a few moments extra hesitation in acting can mean all the difference. How many women have already died or will in the future, just because a man needs a few extra seconds to consider the possible “risk” of coming to her aid?
Currently, only 39% of women suffering a heart attack in public will receive CPR compared to over 45% of men. Even worse is that men were 23% more likely to survive among those who did receive CPR. Implying most likely, that the procedure was often started quicker or done more strongly when performed on men.
With the current news cycle showing no signs of this male targeting witch hunt ending anytime soon, it’s not hard to imagine that these numbers are going to get even worse for women in the near future. It would seem as if in their quest to be free from the male gaze and touch, some women never considered there could come a time when a strange man’s hands and mouth might actually save their lives.
While it is obviously important that actual misconduct performed by either gender be called out and punished. The sheer number of false allegations now being made, along with seemingly innocent acts also being punished has clearly led to a culture of fear and mistrust of women in men. While that may not seem like a big deal at first, studies like this show that in fact in can quite literally become a matter of life and death itself.
