    Man Flu... Why do people...

    ..Call it Man Flu?

    I mean... I don't ever hear women say.. "I have Female Flu"...

    I do believe this is sexism that should be tackled on an internet forum full of metro-sexual middle aged men...

    Man being the more physical of the sexes, therefore the man flu being a more physical (read as painful) version of the flu?

    Man flu aint no joke.

    That's interesting; I've never heard of it referred to as man flu before seeing this thread. Where I live, people just say that they have/had the flu, regardless of gender.

    I read “man flu” and think of how women perceive men as being whiny weak little bitches when they get sick. Not just having the flu.

    To be honest, when I first saw the thread title, and before I read titchgamer's link, I was wondering if this was going to be about some kind of male PMS thing.

    Yep it's not locked down to the flu specifically. I like to make the most of any sickness and if that means being a whiny weak little bitch well thanks for the hot chocolate hun and the blankey.

    same reason women call them Migraines, and the rest of the population calls them headaches...

    Never heard the term, but apparently there's also the German Männergrippe. Hmm... and apparently it means to emote a simple cold into a serious flu. Well, that I heard of ;).

    Influenza is particularly dangerous to the elderly, young children, and people with compromised immune systems, but, it affects both genders the same.

    That's because your strong American capitalist white blood cells will never fall to the communist swine diseases.

    Either that or all the alcohol in your blood is killing the germs.

    Sounds like something you get from having contact with the gay. Otherwise you could only be referring to a hangover from a hellish bender, not literally being ill(To not sound like a poof).

    I've been sick three times this winter. Twice from plane trips and once from a concert. Sage, bring AZN culture to the US. Get sick people to wear stylish masks when they're sick.
