I have mixed feelings about that. The trend of making oneself feel virtuous by calling out someone else is certainly distasteful. OTOH, there are a lot of people out there these days who believe they have the right to do whatever the heck they please without concern for the impact on anyone else. Because that's "freedom." So there are times when I feel we could use a little more shame in society. People should be embarrassed by their anti-social behavior.

Very well said. As I mentioned in that other post, the nurse made all this public so even though I dont think it should be a public issue/discussion/debate, she made it and in a way brought it on herself.

- That gif refers to a scene where everyone shames someone. In doing so, they are making themselves feel better while also making the guilty feel worse. This absolutely takes place during the pandemic with social media allowing hot takes and quick judgements over people we dont know and situations we dont fully understand. Last night, I didnt have patience for yet another social media based article that is just judgement oriented, so i posted the gif and comment. I completely believe the comment is true of how we handle stories like this on social media.

- This sort of incident should be handled internally. But the woman created the situation by making it public, so i posted the gif since its public shaming oriented. It works on multiple levels- both sincere and ironically! Pretty great, huh?

- Again, I have no issue with her being suspended for not wearing a mask since she is a nurse. And if in her contract she agreed to not travel(doubtful), then I would have no issue with her being suspended for traveling. But yeah, I kinda dont love the idea that someone is shamed on social media for saying they travel still(a ton of people do it) or for saying they allow their kids to play with others(a crapton of people do it). Those really were what I disagreed with initially- certain sections of the article/headline.
Our kids have hung out with others- its been nearly 9 months of this, of course they have seen friends. Its WAY less than in usual times, but we have taken measured risk in order to allow them social time in situations. I firmly believe it can be done in a way that mitigates risk to an acceptable amount. My kids are not in a school building right now, so that affects how we view and manage interactions.


Hopefully this clarifies things for you and satisfies your confusion. If you want to have an actual discussion about any of my points, neato. If you want do your usual thing, just pass as I dont have interest in that.
So basically, you totally agree with me yet you need to insult me anyway? Cool story, bro!

Also, is that an admission that you were wrong to sayCycleryNorth81 should be shamed? It's hard to tell with all that mealymouthing.

Did I insult you? Noted, if so.
No it isnt an admission that I shouldn't have posted what I posted earlier. That is my reaction to the article being written, the article's details about how others act, and about how we and others react to articles like this.

Hopefully that is straight forward enough so you can understand now.

Good lord, if that's you trying to be straightforward, I really hope we never ride or drive near each other.

Just answer this--did you actually mean to sayCycleryNorth81 should be shamed? You know you did that, right? I don't see how that squares with everything else you've posted on the subject. As we both agree, the nurse brought this on herself when she took this public.

So, simple question, why is CycleryNorth81 supposed to be shamed?
