Well, sometimes. I know they aggravate some autistic people's sensory issues. I really like them, though, because I don't have to think constantly about whether I'm making the right face when talking to people. Does anyone else feel that way?

I never worry about that anyway.

I can't wait til I can wear the skinny ones.

Part of my sensory sensitivity was that I was wearing them back to front! My whole family were!

I think people were laughing at us too :( We looked like ducks...

After my vax I'm going to get some 3 layer ones.

I think the thin ones I want are nice. An excuse for fashion. A sensory sensitive (at least for me - metal sets off my sensory sensitivity in a way that cloth doesn't) way to wear an accessory.

The ones which I have atm are mum's choice and exactly the worse colour for me.

And on other people tbh they look sexy :lol: Only certain ones with certain outfits :lol:

I love masks and I'll be upset when they're no longer expected.

Some of us who like the appearance of them can keep wearing them I guess.

In Japan and some other asian countries i heard a lot of people wear them normally too.

To me, it doesn't bother me wearing it but i am home most of the time. It must be hard to wear them in hot weather for hours.

Yes, agreed! They seem to help with my social anxiety and agoraphobia, because I can hide behind them!

Yeah, it's kind of nice to be able to conceal my face without having to use a beard ;D

My daughter says people should appreciate masks more, because they're cheaper than a nose job. :P
