Policies and dehumanization of each other based on policies

likesmartfunny

The virus. I like my active lifestyle and I value all the people in my life. I hate that I know some long haulers and pray my people stay healthy.

Hmm.. the inconvenience of wearing a mask indoors vs. a virus the can make people very sick and possibly kill them. Not sure which is worse. What do you think?

99.9% survival rate even without vaccine if you are healthy and not over the age of 65. Can everyone please stop the nonsense

the amount of people answering policies is concerning and honestly disheartening. i'll take slight inconvenience for 20 minutes by wearing a mask when i'm in an establishment over killing someone's grandmother indirectly anyday can't believe this is even a question

People saying policies....what current policies, a mask?

They can at least regulate the drugs 🤷🏻‍♀️

Notice how the prompt just says "policies" and most of the thread instantly took that as 'wearing a mask'. My problem is that there POLICIES that are not based on data. There are some POLICIES that need to be stricter, there are some that beed to be more relaxed; there are some that need to be more targeted, there are some that need to be more broad... But the Policies determine what is and isn't allowable regarding the virus. Whether you think Vaccine Mandates should or shouldn't be a thing, thats a policy issue and same for mask mandates. Also the whole dehumanizing thing someone mentioned is very real and very tiresome. If I hear one more "hurrdurr my freedom" jab at people that don't want to wear a mask, I might just lose my mind; its tasteless, worn out, and doesn't do anything to help/only hurts the dialogue.

Except it is and that must be balanced with public needs. It would be a huge burden if people were unable to attend to their basic needs. Its the same reason we never closed those same businesses at the hight of pandemic.

Why would it be anything but the virus? Especially as we crash into the 4th wave here in the US. Very exhausted of this, the most dangerous virus of our lifetimes.

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .

Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid.

I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!
