The COVID hysteria is finally over.
The full effects of the pandemic won’t be known for a long time.
But doctors across the nation issued a major warning about one lingering effect from COVID no one wants to talk about.
During the pandemic, millions of Americans were isolated, especially because so many restaurants, bars, concert venues, and other social gathering locations were shut down.
Now that society is fully open again, one trend that social scientists have learned about drinkers is that for the first time in history, women are binge-drinking more excessively than men.
“In 2021, there has been an uptick, particularly among women,” director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Dr. George F. Koob explained. “Now it turns out on college campuses women are actually binge drinking more than men, for the first time in history.”
That shouldn’t come as a total shock as feminist culture warriors constantly tell women, especially those on college campuses, to behave more like men – and for men to be less “toxic.”
The result is masculinized women, feminized men, and an upside down society.
Koob also noted that deaths associated with alcohol are up 25%, which is a result in people drinking more copiously now that lockdowns are over.
“It’s what we call the alcohol deprivation effect,” Dr. Koob continued. “People tend to really rebound in drinking after a period of not drinking… We are a little concerned that this spring and spring break is going to be a return to a good amount of binge drinking. I just want to caution everyone that when you start hitting the binge drinking level you start doing really bad things to your body.”
Another factor contributing to women surpassing men in binge drinking on university campuses is that males in college could be more concerned about getting #MeToo’d because of regretful drunk hookup sex.
Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari was the target of an op-ed from a woman who had a bad sexual experience with him.
She did not allege nonconsensual sex, but the ordeal was still damaging to his reputation.
“A standard drink is 1.5 ounces of vodka, 12 ounces of beer, or five ounces of wine,” Dr. Koob added. “When you go past a standard drink, you really are getting to the point where alcohol ultimately becomes a toxin. You can easily overdose – you can kill yourself basically. Individuals who engage in binge drinking, high-intensity drinking — 8 drinks for females, 10 drinks for males — you’re approaching danger levels for your life.”
This is yet another disturbing trend that’s occurring on college campuses.
