Masks are Liberals’ Burkhas

Post by tomfoolery » Sun Oct 04, 2020 1:54 pm

In the Middle East, women are required to wear burkas in public for the good of society. Men are scientifically known to think about sex constantly, which results in lack of productivity and infidelity. Covering a woman’s face will reduce those sexual thoughts and reduce infidelity.

Sure, there’s a cost to wearing a burka, it can a little uncomfortable, but it’s for the best of society as a whole.

Sure, the cost of wearing a burka is disproportionately borne by women for the benefit of men, but women benefit to because they don’t have to worry about makeup, don’t have to worry about their husbands looking at other women, and in a society, sometimes people have to sacrifice for the best of others.

People who speak against burkas must be silenced for being selfish and detrimental to society as a whole. People refusing to wear burkas must be locked in a metal cage for failing to abide by common sense decency that protects society.

Just as burkhas discourage men from interacting with women, masks inhibit people from interacting with one another. If a person smiles underneath a mask, you probably won't know it, so anything more than a fleeting glance at the grocery store is likely to be interpreted as hostile. Ever noticed how people in masks avoid making normal eye contact? Interestingly, some recently publicized public health guidelines actually direct people to avoid making eye contact with others!

There's an agenda behind all this which is not hard to see--especially because the very same techniques of separating people and making them distrustful of one another have been used in the most repressive regimes to isolate people, making them feel vulnerable and susceptible to manipulation by governments who claim the ability to protect them.

Occam’s razor...or it’s a good public health practice for an aerosol borne virus pandemic.

Think I’ll go with that.

But thank you for fighting for my freedom by not wearing a mask. The world is safer for democracy due to your valiant efforts.

Another perspective on masks, and Trump (pardon the word thinker, it may trigger the emoters ;) ):

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/20 ... lness.html

Many Democrats have responded to news of Trump’s Wuhan virus diagnosis by blaming him. He wouldn’t wear a mask, they say, so he did this to himself – and so did the other Republicans who have tested positive. There are two problems with this claim: (1) Trump and the other Republicans did wear masks or were in carefully screened and tested environments; (2) there’s no evidence that the masks that most people wear make any difference.

Normal, decent people, upon hearing about President Trump’s Wuhan virus diagnosis, wished him well. That included all conservatives and a small number of Democrats. Mostly, though, Democrats obsessed about masks and blamed Trump for his illness. They then extended this blame to those other Republicans who were diagnosed with the virus.

For example, CNN’s Tapper ranted about how Republicans, from Trump down, brought this on themselves. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) attacked Trump, not only for not wearing a mask but also for non-payment of taxes (a lie) and for paying off porn stars (which Trump did to rid himself of Stormy Daniels, who admitted she lied because she was a nuisance). Interestingly, Rep. Ryan has been silent about Hunter Biden impregnating a stripper and spending his ill-gotten gains on Eastern European prostitutes.

I like wearing masks. I have 5 or more now. I can’t make others wear them, but I’m going to miss these masks when they’re gone, especially when I get occasional bouts of acne.
As for smiling, I have learned to do it with my eyes (and crow’s feet)

I'm going to miss hot bartenders in black velvet masks and black nitrile gloves.

Oh my dualstow, do you need a care package of masks? I thought people were stocking up on them like toilet paper. Hopefully you meant 5 gross ... my heart is palpitating with concern for you. And, sorry you have crow's feet. Aye, I used to be that way but nevermore, I progressed to raven's feet.
