The attitude of people who are weirdly antagonistic towards those who still take Covid precautions reminds me a lot of the kind of meat eater who’s weirdly and unpromptedly antagonistic towards any mention of veganism

@david Oh gosh I know that one really well. I have to dial my 'veganism' back very quickly if someone gets antagonistic towards me for it. In a way, I have to tell them it's okay to eat whatever you want, as if I have to soothe their emotions.

Guess it's the same with masks and such.

@marenzie we have to focus more on their feelings than our safety around them I guess :bowie_laugh:
