I believe that people deserve the right & freedom to make their own choices regrading their personal health. The people who are worried about viruses deserve the right to wear a mask, practice social distanceing, & should be able to get free health care if they chose to do so. The people who do not like wearing masks deserve the right & freedom to not wear one if they chose. It's pathetic that people want to force their own beleifs & way of life onto each other instead of letting people live how they want to live in peace. It's like how NTs bully Aspies for not being normal & Aspies thinking that they are superior to NTs & that Aspies should run the world.


You're not asking for the right to make choices regarding your personal health. You're asking for the right to make choices regarding my personal health. If you don't want to mask, stay TF away from people so you're not forcing them to be exposed to risks they haven't consented to. Don't whine that people are mad about you willfully and selfishly endangering them.
If your so concerened about your personal health, you should stay away from people instead of telling me what to do. Take some responsibility for yourself instead of making me responsible for your health

Pro: could smile all day with it on because my smile would otherwise creep people out

Con: couldn't breathe properly and would fog up my glasses

Just want to highlight how illogical this post is. They think that a person on the internet far away is impacting their health. If you don't put a piece of fabric on your face you should have no contact with other humans? If you do go near people without fabric on your face you are forcing them to get sick? Ridiculous. Asymptomatic transmission is not a thing, which is what all of this is based on. If you are sick stay home- that makes sense. Stop treating people as if they are some walking biohazard that is going to kill everyone around them unless they do as you and the other branch covidians say.

If people are ordered to wear masks again, I'm not going to wear one. I'm tired of masks. I want people to see my face and my smile.

Anxiety & fear are not always logical. Political & media hype can make it hard to tell the difference between an actual imminent threat or one that is exaggerated. I'm NOT saying that Covid is not a real threat to some people but we should not be rushing for snake oil protection.

I was disappointed when the mask mandate ENDED. If ever there was a sense of anonymity in public, it was during the mask mandates. I doubled up on masking even BEFORE the CDC recommended this. I doubled up for extra protection against the Rona. However, I found another benefit: anonymity. It created a "barrier" between me and other people. Kind of like being hidden from them while around them. I really liked this.

I'm not a shy person. I'm very outspoken, forward and give good eye contact. Nevertheless, the mask made me feel less noticed, which is what I want when I want it.

I don't need to see a person's mouth or nose when I interact with them. Though some people DO need this due to auditory processing disorder or hearing impairment, the vast majority of people don't have these conditions. Yet many complained they couldn't see a person's entire face.

This complaint inspired the production of see-through (plastic) masks, which I think were ridiculous and a sign of being too people-needy. The really weird thing is that the people who "need" to see another person's mouth, nose and chin will hardly even look there in conversation anyways (most people hold eye contact, not mouth/nose contact). So what was the purpose of those absurd see-through masks for all the NTs who used them?

Maybe they wanted OTHERS to see THEIR mouth and nose? Now THAT'S ego-driven! Maybe they couldn't bare that nobody could see their nose ring or tongue piercing? Damn.

Most mouths are ugly; bad lips, cold sores, chapped lips, blemishes around the mouth, bad teeth, too much gum tissue showing, grey gums, yuck, yuck, yuck. I welcomed the mask mandate! I didn't have to mask with my mask on! Meaning, nobody knew I WASN'T smiling when I would've been expected to had there been no mask mandate.
