There is reasonable debate about the nature and extent of mask mandates (how to enforce/who enforces is part of this), but the general freakout even non-mandated masking has caused among conservatives and The Smartest Boys On The Internet has been bizarre.

Sure having to wear them for extended periods while exerting yourself in the heat, for example, is actually an imposition. But slipping one on to go into the store? Just seeing somebody else wear one when you don't even have to?

I would also like life to go back to "normal" but that mask wearing has been held up to be some sort of indignity devised by Hitler has been bizarre.
