Why would someone be uncomfortable with seeing maskless people on the internet...
Because OP needs a nonexistent dumb person for the made up scenario in his mind
He’s talking about that recent story that came out from Zoom.
Not only that even some commenters are saying they know individuals who wear a mask on Zoom lol.
I wear masks on zoom when I’m in a indoor public setting. It has nothing to do with zoom, it has to do with the physical environment.
I forget that people use zoom in public, I can't even use the phone in public lol
I had to once because I was in a public area. Another time, someone in my household had been exposed, so we wore them while waiting for test results. My father is a doctor, he has heart problems, and he sees patients that are immunocompromised. My brother is also at risk due to epilepsy.
When I saw that story, my first thought was "people are really falling for this bait, huh?" Who knows, maybe I'm in the wrong about that.
OP is referencing a few different companies sending out emails with this requirement.
[That was a joke.](https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-coronavirus-zoom/fact-check-screenshot-of-email-in-which-employees-are-being-asked-to-wear-masks-during-a-zoom-meeting-is-satirical-idUSL1N2TN1PX)
Well, the fact that *that* many people said "yes" shows that maybe it's closer to reality than people think.
I said yes out of respect for whoever asked me to.
So everyone on TV and internet will have to wear a mask now.....always? It really doesn't make any sense
No, you didn't read the poll. This is just about one meeting and one person. Please be less disingenuous.
What if it makes me uncomfortable seeing people on my computer wearing masks?
That's the point, if everyone has to do stupid stuff for one person..... Obviously, this one person can never watch TV again if she has a fear of unmasked people. If someone really has that phobia, they can turn of the video feed and just listen
Why would you support someone's mental illness? If that's real and someone is scared of seeing normal human faces they need some serious therapy, not folks who enable them.
I'm personally uncomfortable with seeing silly comments on reddit, you all know what to do please!
Went to school with a kid (transfer from spec ed) who found people tapping their foot to be distracting and lost his temper about it. The people who only tapped their foot louder when he politely asked them to stop everyday weren't doing so because they wanted him to get better. They were just assholes
Well when the foot tapper next to you causes your desk to wobble as you try taking notes mid lecture, I can fully understand his point. Can't understand the Zoom mask one however...
That does not compare to this situation in the least
Theres a difference between "enabling" mental illness and making someone temporarily more comfortable. If the person needs therapy thats one thing, but me telling a scared person to fuck off doesn't help them whatsoever.
This all relies on the context of the situation, but generally you aren't "supporting" mental illness by doing something small to make them more comfortable.
Denying them that comfort certainly isn't doing anything smart/positive.
They need therapy though not you playing therapist.
"maybe put on business clothes to make things more professional, and change the background, and chain the dog farther out because I'm afraid of dogs and the barking is a bit unnerving."
If they care enough to ask, there's nothing lost in doing it
It’s kinda selfish
People saying that they would say "yes" isn't the same thing as people asking others to.
I said "no", but if they were really adamant, I'd turn the camera off or, depending on the situation, just wear one, because at the end of the day I don't really care, fabric masks aren't uncomfortable to me, I'm in good shape so I'm not going to be out of breath from talking with one on.
That's not how facts work.
As of writing this, 455 people said they would wear a mask for a zoom meeting. That's 1/5 of responses.
Whether people are willing to accommodate a friend or coworker is a separate issue from whether workplaces would mandate it.
Exactly XD LMAOOOO
It's not about if they would wear a mask for a zoom meeting. It's about whether they would wear a mask to make someone comfortable that isn't comfortable seeing unmasked people on Zoom.
And 1/5 of responses make no sense at all
I said yes. I'd think it was really fucking weird but would probably go along with it because I don't care enough to make a work issue out of it. So that goes against your theory.
It's pretty obvious in the screenshot that it's a joke
Actually, my state had imposed a zoom-mask-mandate for some employees.
This is a real scenario
*On the contrary I personally am more comfortable being seen with a mask on at all times*
This isn’t a nonexistent scenario, there was post twitter or Reddit the other day. Whether it legit or not that’s just crazyy
Don't forget, most of the US was saying "no they won't force you to be vaccinated" just last year. Lots of things sound unrealistic... until they aren't.
They aren't forcing you. You can still choose to be unvaccinated. However, that doesn't mean you can keep working your job if they require the vaccine. Just like requiring public school children to be vaccinated, jobs can also require it.
Exactly my point... one year later you can't hold a job without it, and the supreme court is debating on the possibility of federal mandates. Young people like to deny the slippery slope only because they haven't seen enough history themselves.
i thought it was about biden wearing a mask on a meeting
Oh you sweet summer child...
I know it’s a ridiculous idea that someone would ask this, but given the absurd level stupidity of some humans possess, I wouldn’t put it past some cockwomble to actually do ask this.
They can turn incoming video off
Or just cover the faces with a sticky note.
I can think of one permanent way you’d never catch another virus…
I can too. Living in a bubble with no food until you die. While alive, you'd never catch another virus.
But then the virus would be invisible.
"Ah yes, I see you're worried about catching a computer-transmitted virus."
But but but but... I got a cute horseface!
Also known as CTV
just mute when you cough
But Fauci said we can get the virus over the Internet!
I don't want zoom to make a realistic virtualization of me
That's not as ridiculous as you might think
Yeah wtf. Life is just uncomfortable- I’m not going to make mine more to make your’s less, unless the reason for doing so is routed in sound logic.
Come on guys..
I am very pro mask. But that's a big no and a suggestion to seek psychological help from me
Exactly! XD LMAO. Agree!!
Agreed... I feel like putting one on would just be enabling the stupidity of it. Plus it would make a great target for anti-maskers to mock.
Helping them for some time AND telling them that they should seek help for it can happen hand-in-hand.
Maybe he likes
Maybe he's not alone...
DUH DUH DUUUNN
Im wondering if ur username is fuck sundried tomato or fucks undried tomato
Probably the later one, since it's the internet and all. Can't have nothing sacred on the internet.
I am more concerned about their pfp
It looks like the oddly terrifying sub pfp
It was a post in r/oddlyterrifying and since i didn't have an avatar at the time but wanted one, i chose that
I wish you didn't lmao
It's "fuck sun-dried tomatoes"
*i mean sure ill fuck em*
I was thinking the exact same thing, but I also had questions about the profile picture
Maybe he just hates flossing
Get over my maskless face
I would turn off the camera. Is this even a thing?
There was a post on twitter. It seemed like obvious bait to me, but many people think it wasn't. So, no, probably not.
It's so frustrating how bad people are at detecting it. "Ann Lesby" is the name of the account. Ann Lesby, Lesby Ann? Really guys?
I’d turn my camera off
Why would you even bother to accommodate? What?
Because I prefer having my camera off to having it on
Never miss an opportunity to turn off the camera
Shit that's smart
If it took me barely any effort to accommodate someone, why wouldn't I do that???
Because what they're asking is unreasonable. Accommodating unreasonable people makes them grow bolder. Then they will start demanding more and more from you.
Let's say they do start demanding more and more from you. Can't you just... say no at that point?
To be clear, I agree it's unreasonable, I probably wouldn't wear a mask and just turn the camera off if they were that adamant, but your comment also seems silly to me.
It's like people whose only argument against gay marriage is to say "if gay marriage is legalized, what's next!?" If that's someone's only reason for opposing it (which it never is), why don't they only oppose those other things instead?
Slippery slope fallacy
Because you are on a screen, they feel uncomfortable looking at your face? That’s their problem, it’s over a screen not real life lmao
Matter of principal.
Yeah this was my answer, I almost never turn my camera on for work calls anyway.
People who said yes, why?
I have acne and don’t like showing my face
Id rather people not see my face anyways lol
Masks comfy too
Turn the camera off then
Until a situation where you can't ie. School, I remember some of my 12th grade teachers would take off participation points for not having camera on
Little effort from me, wouldn't really affect my life - if it makes them feel more comfortable (even if it seems completely illogical to me) I'd happily do it
Enabling that type of behavior will only increase the amount of morons who do things like this
Yep. Giving in to things like this only enables their pathetic behavior
If that happens, then just say no. Do you think this whenever people ask you for a favor, too?
No I don't. This is a moronic situation, if someone is offended by me not wearing a mask on a ZOOM call then I believe they should seek mental help with a trained and qualified professional. If there was legitimate concern for a logical reason I'd more than happily oblige to make them feel more comfortable
Literally zero effort. I completely understand why you wouldn't, but imma take the easy route and not get into an argument or some shit lmao.
There was no other so I couldn't say that we should all turn off our cameras in a zoom meeting.
If I respect the person, then I will oblige them to make them more comfortable if it is a small sacrifice on my end. I don’t need to know the reason.
Because wearing a mask for the sake of someone else wouldn’t bother me, especially if they asked me politely.
cuz they r pussy
Not my job to cater to crazy people
How tf are you uncomfortable with maskless people like did u just forget ur entire live before 2020?
No, if it made them uncomfortable I'd turn my camera off
Why would you sensor yourself?
Would you assume this person would also have their cam off, if they had it on would you still turn yours off? Don’t agree to ridiculous things that aren’t affecting anybody. I bet this person would also wear a mask while watching tv then too, cuz that’s the type of stupidity we are opening the door to by agreeing to that
I mean I turned mine off all the time in classes that didn’t require it on just because I preferred it off anyway tbh
Understandable, I just wouldn’t do it if asked
Because it doesn't impact me in any way....
Having my camera on has no positive impact for me....turning it off would have no negative impact.
If someone is genuinely uncomfortable in a situation where I could help without hindering myself in any way shape or form why would I not? (Regardless of whether their discomfort is rational or not....it's not my place to try to treat their anxiety...)
The point is doing something that you have no need to accommodate to
Again, why would I not?
I don't spend my life only doing things I *need* to do. That would be quite a shit life
yeah, this is the correct answer
I couldn’t stop laughing at seeing macron wearing a mask on a zoom call
There could be other people in the room, so it is not absurd
I can assure you there wasn’t
Were you personally present…? Honestly I’d be surprised if there was no one in the room, he’s a head of state. And from the one picture I saw, there definitely was someone in the room at that time, because someone had to take the photo.
Okay, Macron's wife.
Did you just see the post on r/Cringetopia?
Maybe if I was in public and they wanted to know I was being safe for when I’d see them in person at some later date, but if I’m at home fuck no
I won't please them by putting my mask on
Start coughing instead and watch them freak out
"**OH FUCK ITS ON MY SCREEN**"
Part of living in society is conforming to social norms that are uncomfortable to you, but which we accept are the status quo.
It's generally frowned upon for me to run around naked covered in jello, if I see clothed people it might make me feel uncomfortable, but the normality of society dictates that I am the 1 who should fall in line, not expect everyone else to get naked and jelloed up.
Masks give me bad acne to the point Where it hurts to touch parts of my face. 2020 was a nightmare. Luckily I’m on medication so it’s somewhat under control. I avoid wearing them when ever possible. Sooo fat no. They’ll just has have to deal with it if having a camera on is required. I would most likely turn off my camera to begin with if not required.
Gotta keep at least some self respect
If that made them uncomfortable I would suggest they get mental help immediately because that is very concerning. Also no way would I put a mask on for that, what a stupid question
No they can go fuck themself just because they have an opinion doesn’t mean it’s right
I don't think it's an opinion of theirs, they have an uncontrollable emotional reaction to it. Perchance it is an irrational fear.
"respect irrational fears, I'm a person too." I can hear it now.
If someone told me to put on a mask during a zoom meeting I would probably assume they’re dissing my looks
I would wear a mask covering the top part of my face on this zoom call
Op your Reddit avatar isn’t wearing a mask, I’m very uncomfortable right now
It's not my responsibility to not offend people, with my ugly ass face.
It's everyone's responsibility not to get offended if they don't want to get offended
Unless I'm in public while being unmasked (e.g. I was in the zoom call from a library), that's incredibly stupid and they should just get over their discomfort.
I think this goes farther than anxiety, it’s literally so much fear instilled in them which is like totally crazy that brain has just flown out the window I can’t anymore omg
Now hear me out, you put the mask on, freeze your screen, and no one could be the brighter
Turn camera off.
People need to grow the fuck up. Never in my life would I think to ask something so ridiculous of others. I know this rant is probably off base but it just reeks of entitlement
Jesus Christ no
No that’s fucking dumb what?
What kind of snowflake would care about that?
Why would you even consider this... Man up people
Sorry but they can DEAL because they’ve clearly lost all logic.
God damn, this question screams American liberal.
Yes because Id rather people not see my face anyways
free excuse to mouth insults hell yeah
For anyone who said yes, if I told you I'm uncomfortable seeing masks on my zoom call, would you take yours off?
If I'm somewhere where I'm able to, yes. If I'm not, then I'd turn the camera off. Irrational fears are scary and it would feel really bad if it's belittled and made fun of which I'm sure it already is. If it hasnt, I would never want someone to feel like that.
I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder(a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance) and social phobia( intense, persistent fear of being watched and judged by others),
So it really sucks to have to show my face, but who knows the extent of their fear? I'd sacrifice a little without a doubt.
This doesn't exist. Shut up.
Wtf is that logic lol
Wait .. What?
It's beginning to be a phobia now?
No, people are falling for bait on twitter.
New variant just dropped
depends on their reasoning, i'd like to hear it lol
Camera off, ez
I’m uncomfortable seeing ugly people, can I just be excused from working?
i'd never turn my camera on in the first place
I would rather not have my camera on at all
Just turn your camera off.
Stupid question, also stupid that anyone would actually do it
If seeing a picture of a maskless person makes you uncomfortable, you need therapy or some shit.
Wouldn't want to spread the computer virus?
Whoever said yes needs to think harder
It would be really pointless, but if they asked nicely, I don't see why not.
I never wear it anyways
OP, shut the fuck up.
This is just sad. You need help if you are scared of maskless people on Zoom calls. You really do.
If theoretically there was a person who was like that, I would wear my mask as it doesn’t hurt me to wear it and has the potential to help them
Like were they upset that you were at a coffee shop or some other public place and weren’t wearing a mask? Fuck that, I don’t give a shit if they don’t like it
I'm not gonna wear a Niqab because some Sharia believing idiot in my town doesn't like it otherwise????
My friends and I did it as a joke once and started freaking out that people weren’t wearing masks lmao
you don’t want to catch a computer virus, do you?
Yeah I would put a ski mask on, pull some vodka out and put an alien behind me to freak them out haha. But nah for reals, nope I wouldn't put a mask on if I'm in my own house just for a meeting
Perfect example of what virtue signaling is.
###A mask makes me look better lol
It makes me uncomfortable when I see women wearing clothes during a zoom meeting.
I'm uncomfortable seeing dressed female individuals on the internet, so I can relate. It's so selfish of them...
If they tell me it's an irrational fear of them, I'd turn the camera off whilst avoiding them in real life for the fear of them lying about it and being an actual creep.
If it's a genuine fear that they have, at least they have felt a bit more comfortable with the closed camera. Hopefully they'll be able to get help.
I hate having my camera on so I'm all for it.
I would go for any excuse to cover my face, even a stupid one.
I wouldn't anyway. I am not a mental institution.
