|Concern over the damage that wearing masks is doing to us, especially children, is becoming harder to ignore. One psychologist outlined her issues with masking kids by saying that normalizing mask wearing, when there is such a low risk of severe illness for children, is a form of gaslighting.

While this may be seen as prudent for a man of a certain age, the AP said “a breakthrough case could erode public confidence” in vaccines.
