What do you think about this? I got really surprised to read this report...
@andergarcia Explain what you're seeing please. This is what I'm reading and please correct me if I'm wrong:
So, through 2017 and 2019, sexually diverging people acted differently than average straight people in certain aspects, that's expected.
These behaviors put them at risk of consequences that are different to what puts straight people at risk. Naturally, just like a construction worker is more prone to being squashed by a block of cement than a lawyer.
The consequences of these differential risks have a bigger correlation to severe Covid-19 symptoms than the consequences of risks that straight people have. Same with fat people, older people, diabetics, people who don't exercise, people who have Leiden factor 5, people who are compromised immunologically (like hiv positive people), people with hypertension, etc. We all have factors that puts us at more or less risk.
Sexually diverging people have a harder time keeping their job, their housing and use to abuse more substances. Debatable and possibly discriminatory.
Alphonso David wants the government to focus more on sexually diverging people. He has the right to call for this.
Donald Trump is a bad person and did a bad job, Joe Biden is a good person and will do a good job. Weird to bring up but you're entitled to that opinion.
The article says we are at fault for most of the "problem" since we are in the jobs at the highest risk, as well as being drug users, drunks, and having high rates of STDs and other factors.
@raphjd If actual data from 2017 and 2019 says so then I'd be inclined to believe it. What I'm not seeing is why it should illicit a governmental response and how that's related to Donald Trump.
I completely agree with you.
The LGBT community didn't suddenly change because Trump became President.
This type of data can so easily be fabricated though for political gain.
