News headlines throughout 2020 have pretended to be concerned about the soaring male suicide rate.   

We’ve seen the government allocate unprecedented spend on the issue, and heard plenty of virtue signalling about tackling the silent scourge.

There’s been chat about a ‘bloke blindspot and we’ve read about horrific mental health surging as a result of the pandemic.

In the midst of this, Australia’s most unapologetic exhibitionist feminist Clementine Ford tweeted that COVID wasn’t killing men fast enough.
