Men Afraid to Give Stricken Women Life-Saving CPR for Fear of Being Accused of Sexual Assault

A new report has emerged noting that women have a lower percentage of having their lives saved by CPR because men are afraid to touch them to deliver the life-saving emergency treatment for fear of being accused of sexual assault.

This seems to be a logical result of the #MeToo movement and the false accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, doesn’t it? Men are increasingly afraid to talk to, touch, deal with, hire, or interact in any way at all with women because they are afraid that every women out there is poised to destroy men’s lives with false accusations of sexual assault.

The story comes from Popular Science in a November 5 story entitled, “Women are less likely to receive CPR — but why?”

The “why” is easy to discern.

In an effort to find out why women are statistically less likely to receive life-saving CPR, one researcher posted the results of a survey in which she found an increasing number of men saying that they wouldn’t give a woman CPR because they are afraid of being accused of “unwanted touching.”

“I was surprised at the large proportion of people who responded about unwanted touching,” the researcher said. “Respondents expressed concern that touching a woman’s chest could be construed as assault or unwanted sexual touching,” Popular Science added.

The magazine went on:

“Men don’t want to appear grabby or awkward placing their hands on a woman’s breast they don’t know,” one response read. Another said, “men are likely afraid of getting accused of some kind of sexual molestation of some sort.”

Since false reports of sexual assault are not more common than false reports of other kinds of crime, this result might say more about public misperceptions than it does the actual concerns of a bystander. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t troubling. “This isn’t a scenario where a woman is in distress,” says Perman. “This is a scenario where a woman is on the ground with no pulse, potentially dead.” Given that scenario—one where a few broken ribs are a known consequence of CPR and not perceived as assault—she was surprised to see this fear on the list at all.

The studies showed that men had no problem performing CPR or using defibrillator machines on other men. But men are far, far less likely to use such procedures on stricken women.

This makes perfect sense in today’s climate where all men are demonized as evil without exception. This is what feminism has created.
