Stanford Study claims men who won’t wear a mask ‘more likely to commit sexual harassment’

In the latest in the left’s ongoing attack against masculinity, researchers at Stanford have now concluded that men with an aversion to COVID rules are “more likely to commit sexual harassment and have sexist views.”

“This makes perfect sense, since they’re all outrageous displays of entitlement,” commented Kara Alaimo, an associate professor in the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication at Hofstra University, in an opinion piece published by CNN Tuesday.

Alaimo tackled the topic of men refusing to comply with pandemic measures such as masking up which she said was “an act of the same variety as men who ‘manspread’ on the subway by sitting with their legs apart so there isn’t legroom for the person next to them or use ‘bro language’ like referring to their sexual exploits in the workplace.”

Her inspiration, evidently, was Justice Neil Gorsuch’s reported refusal to wear a mask in Supreme Court proceedings, leading to his colleague Sonia Sotomayor participating remotely from her chambers.

Alaimo continued to focus on the “gender politics of masking up in public places,” taking aim at newly inaugurated Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin for repealing school mask mandates, claiming it’s “particularly devastating for women” who have to look after the children who stay home from school.

She cited the Stanford study as she expounded on the “gendered nature to the debate about masking.”

In the November 2021 study, the authors note that “sexual harassment and COVID-19 behaviors share several things in common. For instance, men are more likely than women to perpetrate both.”

“In general, men tend to judge multiple types of risk as lower than women, a phenomenon dubbed the ‘white male effect,'” the report continued.

On average, men are more likely than women to feel comfortable invading others’ space, despite possible risk and/or discomfort to others. Just as this level of comfort affects their interactions with others’ personal space, it also affects their behaviors related to others’ health. It’s not a simple coincidence that prominent figures accused of sexual harassment also seem to be notable culprits of “mask-slipping.”


Alaimo concluded her op-ed at CNN by declaring that refusing to wear a mask in public places is “a display of staggering entitlement that should leave people of all genders outraged.”

What people were actually outraged by were the very ideas Alaimo was pushing.
