excuse me mancubs, but people have been trying to do stuff like this to kittens for generations and so i think maybe you could use our advice on how to train a human:
when adults engage in anti-social behaviors like this, you have to nip it in the bud immediately before the habit sets!
when they misbehave, say “NO” in a loud clear voice. make sure they know you are talking to them and make clear the behavior that is unacceptable.
you may need to be extremely direct.
adult humans can be one of the most oblivious, self absorbed creatures ever to walk upon the green grass of earth. it’s important to remind them that you are a sentient creature with your own wants and needs, not a status marker and virtue signaling accessory.
if this fails, try biting them and if that does not work, then pee in their shoes.
if they still persist in their aggression, find an adult you can trust and hide behind them.
always worked for me.
start early and remain determined.
because in case you didn’t know, this is exactly how dogs wound up with collars and leashes and that’s probably next for you, at least metaphorically, if you allow these behaviors to get established.
once you let a parent go feral like this, it’s really, really hard to ever socialize them properly again.
The people in favor of this are downright evil. Not just abusive. Evil. I fear for this generation....
These people are so warped mentally.
That pediatric Drs. are putting crap like this up in their offices- if I saw it I would rip it down. While waiting in the dermatologist's office yesterday I was bombarded by "advertisements" on a large ipad on the wall. Most were about vaccines and proper mask wearing. I turned it off. Horrible that our health care system is jumping right on board with bad practices. Not even bad...I will think of a word to describe it later.
It makes more sense when you stop thinking that a vaccine was made for Covid, and start thinking that Covid was made for a vaccine and passports and the Great Reset. And masking children is acceptable collateral damage.

Again, because it can not be said enough these days >

Child abuse is a terrible thing.
The rise of atheist collectivism. I think it was GK Chesterton who said "an enemy is not present until he is omnipresent". This might be early conditioning. What's more unique (thus individualistic) than the human face. I'm waiting for someone to slip up and suggest requiring all masks be black.
This is similar to how we desensitize a dog to a muzzle.
I expect nothing less from a state which doesn't require its high school graduates to have any provable academic proficiency.
Like breathing through industrial grade masks/chemically treated fabric all day is really healthy....not!
Maybe "grooming" is more accurate than "desensitizing."
I'll admit to going with the flow with indoor masks and recommending the same to my kid. Unlike cats, us city humans do need to make the best of living in a herd. I mean, sometimes I'd rather not wear pants either, but peer pressure needs to be accommodated.
This is both cute and insightful. Thanks.
Smudgie’s Getting up and walking away works very well on me.
