there is an obvious difference between an anti-masker refusing to wear a mask during a pandemic and a pro-masker insisting on wearing a mask after a pandemic. one is harmful and the other isn’t, and I’m surprised the discourse about “mask lovers” doesn’t really appreciate this
masking when CDC guidelines say you don’t have to is not “ignoring science.” At most “science” says you might not have to mask — it doesn’t say wearing a mask is bad (in fact it says you should sometimes)

OTOH Not wearing a mask when sciece say you should is ignoring the science
this sounds complicated but if you just think about it it really is quite simple.

press release vs reporting. what happened here? They are not at all making it gender neutral. Did they make a quick change or did all the reports get it very wrong?
like sure, they’re making the whole brand potato head and mr potato head a subbrand, just like Mrs. was. Because it was obviously problematic to have a Mr. Potato Head brand Mrs. Potato Head. That’s not what the headlines said!
this is one of them stories we would only care about last year because trump tweeted it
