Anti-social in this instance is the nice way of saying selfish pile of garbage.

Us non-socials prefer the mask.

I agree that at this point it is stupid to not wear a mask and maintain distance between people, but the stupidity also appears to spread across all demographics.  I wear a mask when in public spaces, do you?

What it indicates is terminal selfishness. Unfortunately, it will often not be terminal for them.

I'm antisocial, but I always wear a mask to protect myself and to protect others.
So is "antisocial" the contested term here? Do we really have time for that?

Antisocial?

Is that how 'Asshole' is spelled in medical terms?

I would have called myself "anti-social," but I do wear my damn mask (even when I'm at home -- cleaning the garage or attic stirs up too much dust for me to tolerate).  I think "non-social" might be a better descriptor for me.

"Anti-social" can have several meanings depending on context. You are thinking in terms of it meaning "not having a strong desire to associate with others". The article is using anti-social to mean "behavior that has a negative impact on others".

I would call them sociopaths.  Most of the behavior is intentional which lends a sociopathic element to the situation.

I used to at least give strangers the benefit of the doubt that I wasn't surrounded by selfish, ignorant assholes, but man, did this pandemic ever show me, in glaring, dayglow Technicolor, no less, just how massively wrong I was.

I just hope that my mask-wearing wife, daughter, daughter's boyfriend and self survive this thing with our health intact all the way to the other side of it.
