Fever & Illness - Gender Issues (Men)

Looking for the old results?
It's often been said that women will work through anything, while men will stay in bed if they have "the sniffles". I'm looking to see how the genders respond to the easiest-checked illness: the fever. There's two seperate polls: one for women, and one for men - be sure you vote in the right poll!

Your age:

3% (3) < 10
14% (12) 11 - 14
19% (16) 15 - 18
20% (17) 19 - 25
