Whatever Happens Next – Do Not Comply

That is about the best umbrella advice I think anyone could give right now.

Learn to open your face and say “NO” while staring directly at whoever is asking you to do something stupid that violates your rights as a human. (it’s pretty fun really… people expect that you will do whatever is asked so when you don’t they get flustered).

Make a game of it.
Stay calm, don’t blink.
Just repeat “No.”

You are the ultimate authority over yourself. Please remember that.

No one can “Make” you do much of anything…. Power is given, not taken….

Stop giving your power away.

Learn from 2020….. (and please don’t fuck the rest of us by being a weak follower when you know better).
This round of pandemic part 2 is go time. This is do or die.

There are no more practice rounds.

    I liked when masks became normalized because I have dermatitis and it made me more comfortable going grocery shopping when my face was red and inflamed.

    But I can also see the symbolic importance of not wearing them as a form of rebellion against power structures.

    I guess I’m just saying that if you see me buying food and wearing a mask, please have compassion for me, it’s the only time people don’t stare at my painful skin condition with pity.

    Never complied the first time!

    I am all for every single person doing what makes them feel comfortable. It is when things become mandated I take issue. I am so sorry about your skin condition. I hope you find an answer to it so it can calm and you can feel better. That isn’t a topic I have delved into or know much about to be able to think of a plausible natural helper… But I do bet there is one… In the meantime, if masks help you feel more confident – do not worry about what others think…. Focus on how YOU feel.
    Thank you for writing in – honestly it’s not a point of view I have ever considered. I will do my best not to jump to immediate conclusions when I see someone in a mask after your comment. SO, thank you.

    Hi 5! 🙂
    Neither did we.
    The very few times I wore one was at a doctor’s office because I needed surgery and couldn’t avoid it and on an airplane. Where mine read “This isn’t about a virus, it’s about control”.

    I have faith in the true American people that we will pull through this. This level of utter nonsense cannot continue.
