    Yeah, I posted her thoughts earlier today. I thought they were quite reasonable but then there's RZ...debating it by mentioning seat belts and how masks are cheap

    Thank you for answering btw, that makes sense to me. I honestly wasn't sure if it was just not liking the feel of a mask or just not wanting the government telling you how to live. Sounds like both, but maybe more of the former.

    Is it possible to even meet in the middle anymore? Like this cold and flu season question, it feels like it would be pretty smart to not mandate masks, but to allow public health to recommend wearing them during local outbreaks. It sounds like many people would just get angry and refuse to have their kids do so though, and I just don't know why these things are political to begin with or why we seemingly don't really care about limiting disease.

    The flu really isn't a minor thing for a lot of people, even the healthy. Beyond the fact that the flu is rough, a lot of auto-immune diseases seem to start with a minor virus.

    If we could get most kids through childhood without exposure to viruses we'd certainly have better lifetime health outcomes overall.

    That's at best debatable and more likely just plain incorrect.

    You should actually read your link!

    I'm talking the vast majority of viruses here, not allergens, not stomach bugs. Feeding your kid peanut butter is not the same as the kid getting THE FLU ffs

    If you only got peanut butter out of the article then you clearly didn't read it.

    Why did RSV rip through pretty much everywhere once masks came off this summer? Because immunity gap is a real thing.

    Right, RSV was the only thing virus it talked about and even the conclusion there wasn't "get RSV"
