Sure, wearing a mask can be a little annoying, but being asked to put one on by the state, a family member or business isn't tyranny. It's a common-sense move to protect the spread of a virus that's killed over 1.4 million people.
Most people understand that, but there are some who insist on putting the health of themselves and others in jeopardy by refusing to wear a mask.
These anti-maskers are incredibly frustrating to anyone who just wants this thing to be over and can't understand why anyone could be so selfish.

It isn’t always easy to ask for help. But when organizations like Bread for the City bring you into their family, anything is possible.
A lot of people here are like family to me," Michelle says about Bread for the City — a community nonprofit located in Washington DC that provides local residents with food, clothing, health care, social advocacy, and legal services. And since the pandemic began, the need to support organizations like Bread for the City is greater than ever, which is why Amazon is Delivering Smiles to local charities across the country this holiday season.
Watch the full story:
Amazon is giving back by fulfilling hundreds of AmazonSmile Charity Lists, and donating essential pantry and food items to help organizations like Bread for the City provide to those disproportionately impacted this year.

A 2015 survey conducted by the National Union of Students found that 60% of respondents turned to porn to fill in the gaps in sex education. While 40% of those people said they learned a little, 75% of respondents said they felt porn created unrealistic expectations when it comes to sex. Some of the unrealistic expectations from porn can be dangerous. A study found that 88% of porn contained violence, and another study found that those who consumed porn were more likely to become sexually aggressive.
But now the thing that breaks those unrealistic expectations… might also be porn? Pornhub has launched a sex education section.
The adult website's first series is simply titled, "Pornhub Sex Ed" and contains 11 videos and is accessible through the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center. The section also contains articles, some showing real anatomy and examples in order to bust myths people may have picked up on other portions of the website.
