Masks are substitutes for distance, not symbols of solidarity.
Masks protect against droplet & airborne viruses, they are not piety markers.
Masks allow safer interaction if someone is contagious, they are not signs of sanctimony.
Masks are a tool, not a testimony.
Masks should be temporary, not timeless.
Masks hide part of our humanity, they do not make us more humane.
Masks are an unintended consequence, not a uniform code of conduct.
Masks create fear, mass immunity creates freedom.
Masks help us cope, they don’t measure how much we care.
