Everything is an absolute, huh?

Perhaps you need a reminder of why masks are worn? It's not to avoid 
getting infected - it's to reduce the chance of infecting others. But you 
know that, and seem to just be trolling here.

If you think wearing a mask is humiliating, then I think you have an 
insecurity problem.

If you think they're immoral, then you have a horrible understanding of 
morality that seems sophomoric at very best, and most likely dehumanizing

Now you're showing total ignorance. You clearly know absolutely nothing 
about BDSM. Second, if you think that wearing masks to reduce the 
possibility of infecting others is in any way related to Muslims wearing 
niqabs, you have issues, you're trolling, or both.

> Masking is wrong. Period.

Again, absolutes.

>>   What part of responsibility in protecting others do you not understand?

> ### What do you actually know about how to protect others?

One doesn't have to know much to follow direction from those that do know. 
You've offered nothing but insecurity as reasoning for not masking while 
pretending that you think that masks are meant to avoid infection, not to 
avoid infecting others.

These are truly bad faith arguments.

If you think masking is bad, do some homework. Find some REAL data that 
shows that.

I think there's a misunderstanding here. I'm not talking about a problem 
with everyone going out in to public - I have a problem with people who 
are unvaccinated and anti-mask going out in to public. I am not for 
lockdowns and simply wish everyone would participate enough that they 
wouldn't be necessary.

Your quoting is a bit odd, so it makes it hard to easily tell what's 
quoted and what's new, so I'll have to re-read everything with this 
misunderstanding in mind.
