Shame Muzzle (face mask)

The 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in face mask requirements. Some people who objected to the face masks called them “shame muzzles” and “ritualistic shame muzzles.”

“No one stops to think about that. Let’s just wear our fear/shame muzzles” was posted on Twitter by @elincomm on July 16,2020. “The masks represent a ritualistic shame muzzle” was posted on Twitter by Cynthia Cumberbatch on August 13, 2020. “[Face with medical mask] Shame Muzzle” was posted on Twitter by Rawley on August 21, 2020.

“You’ll see even more Ritualistic Shame Muzzles now.  Here’s my take on the whole deal. Sub my new channel” was posted on Twitter by HighImpactFlix on August 31, 2020. “I know that High Impact Flix calls them Ritualistic Shame Muzzles” was posted on Twitter by Josiah King on September 25, 2020. The term “ritualistic shame muzzle” was popularized by HighImpactFlix on the YouTube channel HighImpactTV.

One face mask design has “SHAME MUZZLE” printed on it.

The masks represent a ritualistic shame muzzle. The masks do not protect you from viruses period! Are we not the “Land of the Free?” Ok, so somebody lied! The powers that be are robbing our country of everything. Is there nobody that will stand?

Last night at the MTV VMA’s @ladygaga and @ArianaGrande tell us to “be kind,” “be brave” and “MASK UP,” as they perform with masks.  Don’t worry, the sheep got the message.  You’ll see even more Ritualistic Shame Muzzles now.  Here’s my take on the whole deal. Sub my new channel

Masks are now “Ritualistic Shame Muzzles”
Imagine being this Beta, so desperate to be seen as an Alpha, that you grow the worst beard, slick your hair to hide the receding hairline, and unironically wear a shirt about Facts not caring about Feelings.
