I wore a mask, it didn’t bother me, I wasn’t inconvenienced. I was surprised here because most people wore one, there were some that didn’t, but for the most part people did.When it was mandated last time I just went to another county if I had to make a trip to a box store. And even then it was depending on the store within the mask mandated counties. (IE: I didn't see anyone care in Home Depot or Lowe's.)
I find it interesting watching the two groups: those who didn't wear masks versus those who did. The ones who didn't when the pandemic was in full force haven't changed their habits: they didn't and won't. On the other hand those that did, faithfully, during the pandemic? We've seen behavioral changes here: some still comply while others have seen it was what it was.
Changing the subject slightly here ...
One of the biggest instances of mis-information, and quite frankly one of the biggest lies about a lot of people, comes from the term "anti-mask." While I choose to not wear a mask I don't give a damn if others do: I can't be called anti-mask if I'm not against others choices to wear a mask.
I'd argue it's another case of group/identity politics.
There were lots of behavioral changes from both sides during and after the pandemic, I agree.
I think the anti mask grew out of certain people approaching people while banging their freedumb drums and bitching about people wearing masks. I don’t care whether a person wore one or didn’t, but when you approach me about my wearing one that’s where the issue arises.
