"Denier" is an ugly slur meant to evoke the Holocaust. But if someone calls you a denier b/c you won't subjugate your life to a virus, embrace it.

Deny that science is a political weapon rather than a method of inquiry.

Deny that media propaganda will determine your actions.
Deny the corrosive fallacy that harmful government mandates can defeat a virus.

Deny that this virus is so different from all others before that we must throw decades of scientific consensus to the wind.

Deny the myopic viewpoint that pretends tradeoffs don't exist or matter.
Deny the lie that denying children who are not at risk precious formative months and years of education is EVER okay.

Deny the dehumanization of relegating our vital social events to the flattening simulated world of Zoom.

Deny that the Uber Eats driver's health matters less.
Deny that there is zero risk in performing any activity, any day, in any era.

Deny that holidays and special occasions with our families can simply be canceled because they are certain to happen next year anyway.

Deny that these gatherings are trivial and selfish in any way.
Deny that a virus with a 99.8% survival rate should, in any remotely sane world, necessitate cooping healthy, low-risk people up in their homes. Deny that this isn't inhumane.

Deny, deny, deny, deny.

If that's what being a denier means today, sign me up.
