See my username; I chose it for a reason.

Today I had to do a thing with church, and when I arrived, everyone was masked. I was in a bad mood as it was (I hate driving in the city, I’m a county/country girl for life haha), so I just didn’t even bother putting mine on, and quickly forgot.

No one said anything. No one approached me. Two people (out of about a dozen) separately asked me why I wasn’t wearing one, and I just said “No one told me to”. People got a little looser with theirs, but no one took theirs off completely.

But you know what? I consider it a win. At the end, we were taking pictures and people were grumbling and ripped theirs off. They put them back on, but they were still frustrated with it.

It doesn’t take much to be an example. It doesn’t take much to stick up for yourself, even if it’s quiet. I’m a 5’3” female, a PetitePede! I’m small, I’m cute, I’m nice, I don’t look like a disruptive person. I don’t make waves, I just try to fly by under the radar. And I, in my very quiet way, stood up for myself and didn’t comply.

So my fellow Timid Patriots, you can do this too! You can be the quiet example, without making a scene. All we have to do is show that there’s more of us. That it’s okay. That we’re with the ones even more timid and scared than us. And we can grow stronger and braver - silently together. ❤️🤍💙

I know from personal experience tiny can be terrifying if they're bullied around enough. Keep being a petite patriot and show others not all power is loud or big. "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."

You're a unicorn, in a world filled with trash pandas. Hopefully you raise a wonderful family.

Good job! Keep encouraging them to not wear masks! The biggest way, to discourage mask wearing in stores is to make NO eye contact with the masked people. I never wear a mask, and if you entirely ignore them it doesn’t give them an opportunity to speak to you, if they try to say something just ignore them and make zero eye contact

You are completely right - eye contact seems to invite them. It never goes well.

Reinstated mask mandate here in Commiefornia. I just dont wear one and this time around no one says anything. Many got the shot but now realize with masks back they got effed. People look disheartened to be honest.

Same here, minus the virtue signalers. They’ve got this repulsive sort of pride around wearing them. I don’t get it.

It only ends when the People say ENOUGH! I haven't worn a mask since this shitshow started. I've even been ticketed for not wearing one. I took the Bastiches to Court and won. I am old enough and been through enough shit in my 65 years, that I don't need or want some pointy headed Bureaucrat telling me what to do. I'll protect me, worry about your own damn self.

My daughter is exactly the same way. Far from timid thow. She is the same height a little"shit"and she doesn't wear a mask where it's mandatory. She tells them no I cannot breathe. Then they leave her alone. My daughter doesn't deal with Karen's at all. I had to reply to you Fren you sound like my daughter.
