The longer the coronavirus pandemic continues, the more bad takes we’re getting on it. There’s the 5G conspiracies, the racist hot takes, and the flat out deadly advice. Now, I don’t want to speak too soon because humans are nuts, but I think there’s a good change we’ve peaked when it comes to dumb things said about the pandemic. Enter a 90yr old dude named Pat Robinson, who reckons oral sex is the reason we have COVID-19. Hear all the details below:
In fairness, Pat Robinson is the sort of dude who has had a lot of bad takes in his life. He’s one of those very particular Americans: a televangelist, political commentator, former Republican presidential candidate, and former Southern Baptist minister. He’s also super rich.
Anyway, he’s cracked the case on COVID-19! Oral sex, but specifically oral sex with women, has transferred chemicals from vaginas and out into the open. He knows this because oral sex is a brand new phenomenon, and nobody ever did that when he was growing up, no sir.
In fairness, poor old Pat Robinson doesn’t seem to know a lot about vaginas. You know that quote, that feminism is a “socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.” Yeah, that quote came from this guy.
So while the rest of the world gets to work on flattening the curve and beating coronavirus through social distancing and actual science, spare a thought for anybody with a vagina who has ever come in contact with Pat Robinson. Clearly it’s all their fault, with the whole oral sex chemicals giving us COVID-19 thing, and boy howdy are they probably going to have to hear all about it.
