Sorry? What exactly are we supposed to see in those links? Didnt see anything about not enforcing masks or black people.
Not in those links lol.. I was referring to posts in the "science only" thread.

I wanted to show the CDCs warnings that some people should never wear masks and all people shouldnt under certain conditions.

I have yet to hear from any medical authorities that wearing masks by the masses will cause a surge in COVID-like respiratory issues. Id bet you havent either. Not sure if youre trolling.

Had you read my post I admitted that the picture is poorly worded but that doesnt take away the dangers it talks about.

Oh lol good point.

Yes, people need to be careful with masks (like everything in life). No, the dangers are nothing like the dangers of COVID. Poorly worded is an understatement, but point taken.

I was slightly motivated to post about this after once clearing my throat and almost inhaling an entire mask. Panicked for a few seconds as I gagged.

Article is well written however I would argue that although the surgical masks are "highly porous and breathable" they often are folded which makes it difficult to breath.

So it's ok to go out if coughing as long as you wear a mask?

I am desperate to find a REAL breathable mask. I feel like I am suffocating. I have COVID antibodies so am not so conderned about getting the virus. (Not asking for debate about masks or antibodies-just for recommendations of masks that you can actually breathe in.)

Have you tried the reusable ones from target? they are fairly breathable (and only $4 for 2)

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

these are considerably more bearable than many of the disposable ones, but still not fun

I had some Moldex N95 masks (2600 series) that are pretty breathable.

Not available to the general public.

Also, if it's all about protecting others, does N95 make a difference?

The Trump masks are definitely better than the surgical masks.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I have small stock of some N95s I may be willing to sell, like 10-15 pieces. Its easier to get N95 nowadays, though I dont think it protects others more than a 3 ply. Hes looking for comfort and I find some N95 masks to be great for comfort. Some are terrible.
