hahaha, even some of the mask wearing retards like this author (a senior editor? LOL.) are getting tired of wearing masks. this author thinks her research justifies not wearing masks outdoors, but she still believes in every other part of this hoax and refuses to listen to the myriad doctors, nurses, and others who say that the mask has never done anything to prevent the spread.
Just a bit of life advice... you achieve more when you look for common ground then when you back everyone into a corner (including yourself) with no room for compromise or understanding whatsoever.

I was happy to see the article because it was an honest nonpolarized take - which has been impossible to find in over a year. Everyone has to be extreme on one end or the other. It’s ridiculous.

it does not make sense to wear a mask in your own backyard or to walk to a table in a restaurant or to pass someone on a sidewalk for a split second. That should be something EVERYONE can agree on. Start from common ground.

reread the article. this editor supports "mask shaming" people. heres her exact quote: "Look: I believe masks (and even shaming) are indispensable in controlling the spread of the coronavirus." shes a CDC virtue signalling zombie. a true nonpolarized person would be described as someone wearing a mask who doesnt care if another person wears one or not. those people are tolerable. ignorant to the facts, but tolerable.

there is ZERO compromise here when it comes to freedom and liberty. we either have freedom or we dont. theres nothing extreme about it. even the smallest infringement is an infringement.

Any law or rule whatsoever can be considered an infringement on our freedom. Any and every single one from the mundane to the major. And yet the majority of people accept even the most ridiculous but choose this particular hill to die on.

I didn’t like that comment in the article either. But overall it was a position which showed less polarization then pretty much every other opinion I’ve seen in over a year and it showed some nuance which has been lacking on both sides. People are virtue signaling with these masks either way and it’s stupid. If I wear a mask I’m not a brain dead sheep if I dont I’m not a redneck trumper. The whole thing is stupid imo.

The idea that masks do no harm is false, unfortunately. OSHA required medical testing, long before COVID, for people in industry that had to wear masks for their jobs because it is very hard on the heart. There are adverse physiological as well as psychological effects from wearing masks. See the info here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33303303/

Thanks, but there are many different designs and types of masks, mine is thin and light as a feather and is so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing it, but if it felt uncomfortable I'd ditch it fast..:)

I thought I'd share this story because I found the incident so funny:

Last night, my dog and I were coming back up from her bedtime bathroom break, when we got on an elevator with a man who was coming up from the basement, and had what looked like a N95 mask on. Once we got on, he said to me, "Excuse me, you should have a mask on."

I said, "I don't need a mask, I have an immune system".

Evidently, he didn't like my answer and said sternly, "You should have a mask on!"

I then looked at him and replied, "And you should grow a spine".

Well! He got in a huff about that and then told me he has a spine. By this time, my dog and I were at our floor and got off and yelled "YOU'RE EVIL!"

I replied, "....and you're a wimp!"

He began to get flustered and started yelling at me, "EVIL! EVIL!" making the motion to shoo me off the elevator.

At this point I just started to laugh and said, "Look at you."

I left him yelling and acting like a madman, while my dog even began to smile and wanted to play because once the elevator door closed, she wanted to play and race me back to our home.

The entire episode reminds me of what UAC posted here:

"Sometimes people don't want to hear the truth because they don't want their illusions destroyed".

No Masks and No Vaccination in Borough Park Brooklyn March 7, 2021

this is the hasidic jewish section. TOTALLY different scene.
I just spent a couple days in Brooklyn... there were barely any masks in all of south brooklyn. Coney Island was packed, restaurants were open everywhere... I don’t know what the hipsters and rich assholes are doing elsewhere in nyc but the idea that all of nyc except for the jews are mask crazy is just wrong
