the mask karens are back – by el gato malo – bad cattitude

longtime readers of bad cattitude may recall some past discussion of mask addiction. this is a very real thing. they have studied it in japan. the performative aspect, signaling, privacy, and anxiety validation are a very potent combination. it’s as addictive as holy hell if you have the sort of personality predisposed to such things and the old saying is very true: “once an addict, always an addict.”

what she is really saying is “i don’t care what you want or if i can convince you. i demand to sacrifice your freedom and agency to make it easy for me. your liberty ends where my anxiety begins.”

it’s telling that she wants mandates and coercion rather than trying to convince those possessed of a choice.

it smacks of both desperation and of entitlement. the admonition to “have the courage to force people to act as i demand” feels more like a cry for help than a sound foundational basis for public health.

it’s like treating paranoid schizophrenics by having all those around them pantomime hearing the voices too and agreeing about how threatening and scary they sound.
