Swine flu of a different issue?

If a male chauvinist pig gets the flu (and they say sexism is rather contagious since it’s a learned behavior), does that qualify as swine flu? Scientists and doctors are working hard, racing to discover the origin of the proliferating H1N1 swine flu as well as an effective medicinal cure for it…I suppose this random thought isn’t very funny, but still…the similarities! Even with all the women’s liberation activists working globally, sexism (at times in deadly form) remains pervasive…particularly in the Middle East. With that in mind, swine flu (of the chauvinistic kind) then is quite globally pervasive already and even more of a pandemic…ironic that they generally don’t eat pork in the Middle East, yet suffer the highest degree of (chauvinistic) swine flu. Isn’t it even more ironic that the H1N1 swine flu is getting so much attention despite the minimal (relatively speaking of course) impact it has had to-date (less than 20 have died from it globally) as compared to other more severe issues facing the world concurrently. Makes you wonder what our priorities are.
