Would you prefer wearing masks to be socially acceptable?
#1
Pros:
- You don't get judged by your face
- Hide your face and expressions, so you can laugh at a lame joke you suddenly remember or thought up anytime and not be judged, also do sarcastic smiles and eye-rolls as much as you want
- Masks become another way of expressing yourself as you can wear different styles

Cons:
- You don't get to see expressions or face of others who wear masks

Oh you mean literal mask.

Couldn't you be judged for hiding your face anyway?

Not if it was socially acceptable as the premise assumes. So it's a question of if you couldn't.

This line of thought is one step away from fursuiting.

No. I want to see people's faces while I am talking. I also want others to see my own. I like socializing and talking with people.

It might be beneficial for shy people to use masks as a stepping stone for talking to people however, I am not too shy to show my face so this advantage doesn't benefit me.

Also, other people wearing masks would be detrimental to shy people because expressions give feedback. If a socially awkward person doesn't get feedback, they won't know when they do something right or wrong.

I think there are places where it is acceptable to wear "masks" of sorts. For example, I have seen quite a few asian people wear surgical masks and of course, the burqa in Islamic countries.
"anyway.. why do people keep saying my name? i don't sim anymore lol"

No, there's a severe security risk to this. That's why it's actually forbidden in many places.

Sorry for the bump if it were to bother you.

Do you mean this:
If I remember correctly, people in this region wear the mask above for following reasons:
  • to prevent to spread their coughing and sneezing (but actually useless if they're wearing incorrectly)
  • simply, to hide their face (but why?)

No, he means full-face masks, that completely cover the person's face.

If there wasn't a security issue, then sure why not.

Although, not seeing someone's facial expressions while talking to them would make the interaction a lot less fun ._.

On second thought, nah, screw masks

I say let people wear what they wanna wear
if you're ok with letting a kid see it in a situation irl then let em wear it anywhere that's it's safe/not endangering others to do so (e.g. in a place where you need to see a part of someone's face for security reasons then yeah that's the rule)

so like imo if it's not a creepy mask fair enough
