We can’t invoke the precautionary principle with masks because they haven’t been studied.

And they should be.

B/c proactive parents sent their kids masks to a lab and the results were disturbing.

The hygiene hypothesis has been invoked to counter suggested harm from keeping bacteria-laden cloth over kids’ noses/mouths 8 hrs/day, as well as claims of no increases in strep/inf?

How would we know?

How many local increases haven’t been reported? abc12.com/2020/10/02/hea…
As for the hygiene hypothesis, typical environmental exposure vs. contrived antiseptic sterility is a good thing.

But it’s disingenuous to claim that direct oral/mucosal/dermatological contact + inhalation for prolonged periods of time does not qualify as “typical exposure”.
Aaaaand labs reports from accredited labs are being censored
*does* qualify as exposure.

It’s disengenuous to claim that it *does*.

Watching Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters respond to Mark Zuckerburg’s mind-bogglingly audacious request to use ‘Another Brick in the Wall 2’ in some Instagram ad w/

“Fuck you. I won’t be a party to this bullshit”

was easily the best part of my day.

Watch the whole thing. He nails it
Attempting to co-opt a classic anti-authoritarian anthem to promote an org that openly supports and engages in censorship is just un-fucking-believable.

“We don’t need no thought control”, indeed.
And as a totally bizarre and 100% true coincidence, my daughter *just* sat down on the couch next to me wearing this shirt:

Well played, universe. 👊

I have 3 teen girls & a tween. Pre 3/20, they were growing & thriving. Since 3/20, they all, at some point, wanted to escape this dystopian world b/c

*Rites of Passage cancelled
*Sports gone
*Grades ⬇️
*Futures MIA

Two lost 20lbs each.
Graduations, Proms, School, College, Study Abroad— All cancelled

Dating was impossible

They were freaked out at being treated like untouchables in public.

Masks scared them b/c they couldn’t read people faces

And every day was Groundhog Day...
Masks = terrible skin problems which affected their self-esteem

One covered her mirror.

No in-person counseling

My two performers couldn’t perform.

They lost trust that adults around them (besides me) gave 2 shits.

And they were shamed for not being ‘resilient’ enough...

The thread below has been spread widely on Twitter to try to discredit Sunetra Gupta & it's a FAKE event

Look at the website, which he doesn't link- only screenshots worldfreedomforum.es

There's no location/address/times/social presence/no mention on Twitter before 3 June...
It doesn't return on a Google search. The copy is non-sensical. Her picture is old and available online.

The domain wasn't registered until 2 weeks ago.

So it goes without saying that - No - she's not attending the fake conference...
The tweet thread is a lie to foment outrage & attempt to discredit by association.

It's one thing to disagree w/ someone. It's another to be willfully duped to satisfy your confirmation bias.

This is morally bankrupt & anyone who shared w/o looking further owes her an apology.
