No, but I did know that people living in arid locales have known that covering one's nose and mouths kept them from inhaling dust, sand, and other airborne crap for thousands of years.

I, like many people, have been wearing the masks without any break since Feb / March 2020. 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week, for almost 3 years now. It's not a big deal. You get used to it. I will say, though, that it makes a difference what kind you wear. The surgical mask or kn95 are not a problem. N95 does get hard because your ears and face start to hurt. But if you are wearing cloth or gators, they suck up against your face and make you feel like you can't breathe.

It was actually true that mask-wearing was common in Arabia and Persia, but they were worn by Zoroastrian / Zarathustrian priests, so as not to contaminate with spittle a bowl of fire that is used as part of the worship of the divines.

Also as others mentioned, as a dustfaring garment.

Yep. The whole circumcision thing makes sense from the perspective of people living in a desert before penicillin too.

Sand causes abrasion. Abrasion causes infection and infection causes a particularly horrible death from cock rot.

u/ganonpig HCA Historian Sep 27 '22

Not content with diminishing the Holocaust by comparing Covid measures to the genocide of World War II, anti-vaxxers also draw parallels between masks and Muslim face coverings. Claiming masks are used as a tool of oppression similar to the various forms of face coverings in the Muslim world. The persecution complex is in full overdrive. Every slight inconvenience is immediately viewed as a permanent loss of liberty, specifically targeting them, and equally Marxist, fascist, Islamist, Satanist, and globalist in nature.

This piece of copypasta is being uncritically shared because it conforms to something they already believe or want to believe. Fact checking it is therefor the last thing they would want to do.

The narrative that is spun by this meme is pure fiction. The unsubstantiated claim that covering nose and mouth makes someone submissive. The spurious origin story of Muslim face coverings. The unfounded link to masks worn for health reasons, which entails a complete disregard for the drastically different reasons for implementing the use of masks during a global pandemic...

The first meme's left image depicts a slave mask used between the 16th and 19th century ostensibly to prevent slaves from eating dirt. Whether dirt eating was ever a thing is beyond the scope of what I'm talking about here but there are plenty of articles about it available.

The right image is an illustration circa 1800 featuring an iron mask, collar, leg shackles and spurs used to punish and control slaves in the southern United States during the early 19th century.

None of this has anything to do with slavery in ancient Arabia or how the slavers used masks to break people psychologically. Nor anything with mask mandates, which have been lifted for quite a while now (apart from in hospitals).

Covid masks are not comparable to the types of masks that conceal the entire face. Did they forget you could take masks off outside, or at home, or any other non-crowded spaces? They're not padlocked.

I have to wonder what they thought the end goal was of introducing masks to supposedly make people submissive. It's one of those memes where everyone can inject whatever they fear most. It stirs some ill-defined fear of loss of liberty. And that's all a good fear-mongering meme needs, suggestion without actually saying anything concrete.

Four thousand four hundred years ago, in the Garden of Eden, Adam learned that if he put coverings over the female nipple that it broke Eve's will and spirit and made her subservient. That's why ever since women have been forced to wear fabric over their chests. Modern psychology explains it: without mammary glands women don't have purpose. Infants look at nipples as sources of love, comfort, warmth, and nourishment. The bra is the beginning of the destruction of family.

He who doesn't know this history is doomed to repeat it.

The padlock on the mask is such a reach.

Amazingly, a mask has not stopped me from voicing my opinion, for asking for something or made me submissive. Mostly, they fog up my glasses now and then.

I am, of course, wary of the risks, because of the geoengineering that is going on from airplane chemtrails, and the brain submission chemicals that were injected into me and called "vaccines", so maybe I'm unaware of the brain modifications that have occurred. /S

Even if this were true and not an urban legend, there's a simple solution: Wear a mask with a window. Many varieties are available on Etsy, or you can make your own if you know how to sew (and have a heavy-duty machine needle, since the needle needs to pierce through the plastic used for the window). I have two. I gather they were originally conceived as a way for people to speak to deaf/hearing-impaired folks who read lips; I just like them because I can show off my lipstick. :) These window masks are great conversation starters, allow people to see my smile (and read my lips), and as a bonus they got some travel time, as I took them all over the Caribbean!

They do tend to get a little rainforesty inside when I wear them for long periods of time, but a little saliva vapor is better than the alternative.

If a mask breaks your will and erases your personality you have a weak will and no personality. I donโ€™t define who I am with the bottom half of my face. Or any of my face for that matter.

And the woman who broke into the hospital room and had to be removed by the police?!?!?!

I suspect they called hospital security for more than just a little praying like she claims...

Soโ€ฆ can I be maybe too honest? That padlock mask is kinda sexy. Iโ€™d totally wear one if I thought itโ€™d look like that in reality.

I can not imagine all the people in the ICU when ac crazy woman breaks in. Wow, even as a loved one is dying, the disrespect for others is palpable.

u/Kutas88 Sep 27 '22

Because 2300 years ago, everything that ANYONE did had just a symbolic meaning. Today we react on knowledge. Thats a difference.

That's selling our ancestors a little short. Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the Earth to surprising accurate result 2300 years ago.

Ancient Egyptians were early astronomers and tracked the stars, as well as medicine and agriculture.

Humans by our very nature react on knowledge, we've been doing it for millennia. It's how society started.

u/Kutas88 Sep 28 '22

That's right. And if I may ad, discoverys of certain tool even give hints that ancient egyptians did brain surgerys.

BUTโ˜๐Ÿป They hadn't the internet and all the stuff. So most of the knowledge was pretty much stuck in one spot on the planet. And later religious nutjobs tried to reverse every collected knowledge by declaring it witchcraft and burning people to death for it. Just 1 example of many. One time they found a book by leonardo daVinci, which was full of inventions and scientific explainations. A monk took it to copy the bible into it.

The chinese collect knowledge about medicine since 5000 years. That's why most of their medicine is plant based, and that's one of the reasons that chinese people have the most over 100year olds. Do we use any of that knowledge in the western world? Didn't see anything yet. So the thing I said was meant that "the majority of people".

So, yes, you're right about that knowledge exsisted for much much longer. But the point is, most of the people were either very ignorant or tought to be ignorant.

It's the year 2022 and there are still people out there who reject EVERYTHING because their god will fix their problems for them.

Today we react on knowledge.

Well, some of us do, the rest, not so much.

I really hate the confidence that keylady has when it doesn't fucking work to still act like she's right. Any questions? yeah, who dropped you on your head and was it on purpose?

I still can't get over "yeah, he had Covid but we still don't KNOW what exactly killed him" I completely identify with the person raging in the last slide.

u/maxreddit Sep 27 '22

Of course he's not sure! It not like contracting a modern plague causing you to barely be able to breathe makes you more likely to die from other stuff! Basic science has taught us that a person can only be affected by one disease at a time, that's why we infect people who have brain cancer with the flu, then the cancer will have to wait for the flu to finish before damaging infectee. The science of "disease politeness" is very well known!

I never understood the padlocked mask thing? Do these people not know how masks are put on and removed? Or do they think the padlock will magically prevent you from simply pulling the mask strings off your ears? If anything, I think the padlocked mask thing is more symbolic of a made-up victim complex. "Look at me, I'm a victim, I'm trapped. I couldn't possibly just take this mask off!"

In the context of Islam I can totally see this applying. In the context of having to wear one to be considerate of your neighbours in public if you may be sick, is plan stupid.
