A Guy Committed Murder Because He Couldn’t Get A Date, And Twitter Responded In A Massive Way

One young man who blamed women for his failure to get dates and get along with women killed six people and wounded seven more. The Internet responded in a huge way, and it's still going. The hashtag #YesAllWomen was born, and it took Twitter by storm. Millions of tweets have included the hashtag. I have read literally hundreds of them, if not more, and I can tell you that they are chilling and eye-opening. When I mentioned the hashtag and some of the stories to my wife, she replied, "Of course ... I always carry my keys in a way that they can be used if someone attacks me. We learn that early on." For someone who considers himself a pretty well-educated and in-touch dude, it rather floored me.

But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
