One of the ways to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus is to wear a mask over the nose and mouth.  For some reason, this has resulted in many people losing their shit and in many cases becoming violent.  I don’t get it.

We may be skeptical about whether masks really help to avoid spreading COVID-19.  That’s understandable.  COVID-19 is a brand-new disease, and there’s still a lot we don’t know.

But we’ve seen that the cases of flu and the common cold have dropped since people started wearing masks.  That should tell us something.

I get that people don’t like wearing a mask  It’s inconvenient, uncomfortable, and can sometimes feel as though you’re not getting enough air.  But as someone pointed out, being on a ventilator is a lot worse.

COVID is real.  Masks help.  Vaccinations can be effective, and no one is injecting electronic trackers into you.  If you’ve got a phone, they can already track you.  Just put on the fucking mask and quit pretending that you have a God-given right to act like a dick.
