New Covid guidelines end Taylor Lorenz’s authorized ethos

The CDC has finally eased the Covid restrictions that many Americans already knew were unnecessary, that of quarantining those who were exposed to the virus.

The new guidelines “lift the requirement to quarantine if exposed to the virus, minimize testing of people with no symptoms, and update Covid-19 protocols in schools,” NPR written, but for some, like the famous crybully Taylor Lorenz, these changes are meant to hurt people like her.

“Literally, what’s the plan for high-risk/medically vulnerable and disabled people?” She writes on Twitter. “Let us just wait while the world moves on?” Like wtf.

Lorenz, who has come to symbolize the kind of whiny, titled millennial who demands more from society than she’d ever allow anyone to expect of herself, can’t stand for the freedoms of others to supersede her own. need to restrict them.

There is a philosophy among Americans of a certain overeducated class, among those who believe that their mere existence is permission to dictate terms of behavior to the rest of society. It’s this group that reveled in Covid restrictions, used masking and quarantine as a moral cudgel with which to beat the rest of us, to call us “grandma killers” and pretend that we just don’t care about other people.

There are many among the elite media class of millennials who advocated, in the early months of the pandemic, never to leave their own homes, to give in to their inner desire to see no one anyway , to live their entire lives online, telling others what to do while they breathed filtered air, consumed delivered meals, and ordered all their supplies from Amazon.

For his part, Lorenz laments that the United States “has never had full lockdowns.” In his view, people who worried about the effects of isolation, school and church closures, and economic shutdowns are literally forcing people with disabilities to “stay locked down forever.”

“The same people complaining about not stopping at the ‘sanity’ cost of lockdowns,” she wrote, “(even though we’ve never had full lockdowns) and having to wear masks, are perfectly happy to force people with disabilities to stay locked in forever or keep an N95 taped to their face every time they go out in public.

Instead of giving back to Americans their right to show their own face, not to take medical precautions when they don’t believe they are needed, or even when the CDC doesn’t believe they are needed, Lorenz and those who agree with her want everyone to address their own concerns.

It’s not about masks, it’s not about supporting people with disabilities, it’s about wanting others to treat you in a certain, very specific way, even at the expense of their own preferences and freedoms, and to feel sufficiently entitled to demand it.

“Even if you wear an N95 everywhere, one-sided masking policies leave vulnerable people at risk,” she writes. “Let’s say there is a small gap in your mask, you have to take your mask off at airport security or take a sip of water. Not to mention the countless other mitigations that our leaders have ignored” [sic]

She implores officials, experts, to demand that the public do what she wants them to do. And this is not a penchant specific to Lorenz, although she embodies it perfectly. Before the pandemic, many other contagious diseases were part of our daily lives. Yet most people didn’t feel the need to mask up, either for their own benefit or for the benefit of others. But instead of remembering just a few years ago, Lorenz hits out at those who don’t wish to mask up, and at the CDC for saying exposure to Covid shouldn’t require that exposed person to hole up at home for two weeks on the off chance that they contracted a virus.

“Disabled/medically vulnerable people shouldn’t have to risk their lives to participate in society, and most don’t even have that choice. People with disabilities also have to work, go to school, buy groceries, go to the doctor. We are human beings in the world like everyone else.

And of course, the last missive of Lorenz’s rant has to do with wanting there to be more like-minded people in the media in order to pump up her point of view and “center” those points of view. view of others. If only there were more people, Lorenz thinks, who were aware of the difficulty of being someone like her, there would be more concessions made to her and those who agree with her.

“As someone working in media who is immunocompromised and medically vulnerable, I really wish that we as an industry hired more writers with disabilities and did more to center vulnerable people in our coverage, especially on COVID. What is happening right now is so horrible on such a grand scale,” she wrote.

The only thing that is horrible is the continued capitulation to the crybulia who demand every concession, right and privilege, while telling the rest of us that we are inconsiderate for not considering them first.

On the contrary, the new CDC guidelines have finally caught up with the rest of America. People can no longer be convinced that they have to stay indoors without being sick for two weeks or more just in case they have a cold. Over the past few years of this pandemic, we have been bullied and harangued by people shouting how much more important their life and way of life is than other people’s, and finally, hopefully, people realize that they can think and live on their own terms.
