America in 2020. People using forged (and mis-spelled) cards from a fictitious organisation to misrepresent legislation intended to protect disabled people so they can avoid showing a basic amount of courtesy to help protect others during a pandemic.
Not only is this bullshit ableist as hell, it would literally be easier just for these people to put a damn mask on their faces.
If you're in the US and someone hands you one of these, cut it in two and throw it in the trash.
@LexYeen An interesting name for it. Apt too. These people really do put themselves before anyone or anything else.
@InvaderXan "How dare you ask me to consider other people!" is a shockingly common American attitude, and I personally think it can trace its origins back to the myth of American exceptionalism.
When you're told stories from birth about how you're growing up in the Greatest Country Ever and you can Do Anything You Want, Even Be President If You're Good Enough, there's a whole bunch of very gnarly ideological failure states.
And we're seeing them all come out to play during this pandemic.
@LexYeen Ugh. Yeah. All part of the "fuck you, I've got mine" attitude. It's prevalent in the US, but pretty common among rightwing types elsewhere too, especially in Europe.
Honestly, the difference between the individualist culture in western countries and the collectivist cultures you find elsewhere is one of the reasons why I love East Asia so much.
