Men are less likely to wear masks because they’re “a sign of weakness” – 11 stunning takedowns
In the UK, at least, the public health message on masks has been a bit confusing, but it’s still the case that many experts say that wearing a mask helps prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Surveys show, however, that men are far less inclined to wear masks, because they’re *checks notes* “not cool and a sign of weakness”.

You know what else is a sign of weakness? Being ill.
These reactions tell it like it is.
Like the cool guys who don’t wear helmets or seatbelts?
If your masculinity shrinks bc you wear a mask, is the issue that it was so small before you can’t afford the shrinkage? https://t.co/yn1BaSigHA

Aside from the craziness of putting fragile masculinity ahead of public health, this makes no sense! Who wears masks in our culture? Outlaws, football players, Mission: Impossible spies, astronauts, Batman. Who are our foremost masked weaklings? https://t.co/L78im1UXZD

I don’t know, protecting people around you while sacrificing something you care about (in this case people looking at their face?) is prob the most manly thing you can fucking do. https://t.co/cUTWyEUsqk

Diane Duane had a suggestion.
Why has no one started doing them in camo, or black-and-charcoal, and labeling them TACTICAL? That'd sort it. :/ https://t.co/M4Cj6diWTo
