the term “man flu” stems from the idea that men are prone to exaggerating the severity of their symptoms when experiencing the common cold or another minor ailment. although the phrase is most often used in a tongue-in-cheek way, there may be some merit to the male whine. in 2017’s customarily playful (but still peer-reviewed) christmas edition of the bmj , professor kyle sue pointed to research suggesting that men are more susceptible to complications when suffering from an acute respiratory disease. they’re also more likely to go to the hospital and, unfortunately, succumb to the flu.

man flu is a crippling and debilitating disorder indiscriminately striking down male members of the human species without warning. the illness is often referred to pejoratively by female members of the species who are in fact immune from the illness as man flu is now known to exclusively attack the xy chromosome carrier.

man flu :

man flu is a cold or similar minor ailment as experienced by a man who is regarded as exaggerating the severity of the symptoms. descriptionman flu is a phrase that refers to the idea that men, when they have a common cold, experience and self-report symptoms of greater severity, akin to those experienced during the flu. while it is a commonly used phrase in much of the english-speaking world, there is a continuing discussion over the scientific basis.

as commonly used, the term man flu could be describing a constitutional character flaw of men who, when felled by a cold or flu, embellish the severity of their symptoms, quickly adopt a helpless “patient role,” and rely heavily on others to help them until they recover.another possibility is that men actually experience respiratory viral illnesses differently than women; there is precedent for this in other conditions.

a canadian researcher says there is some evidence that hormones and other factors may make men more susceptible to serious cases of the flu.

those define the illness as a cold or similar minor ailment in which the sick man is accused of exaggerating the severity of the symptoms.

they are not exaggerating: the flu is stronger in men. a study showed that they suffer more than women from a cold. the cause is hormonal. in men there is an immunological condition that can make them more prone, but the perception of symptoms can be subjective.

it's something we suffer when we see how bad society has sunk since women were taken out of the kitchens and labor rooms.in the great old days the man brought home the bacon and the woman looked after the home and had children.it worked great,nobody was offended by a "box of rice","plastic potato","or dr. seuss books".we should immediately go back to that and re-introduce discipline back into the home and classroom.then morons like blm and these millenial females wouldn't be a pain in the a$$..:)
