One common theory is that facemask rage is a result of pent up frustrations with the pandemic and the restrictions required by most states. Another theory is that facemask rage is nothing more than an adult temper tantrum. Psychologists theorize than people who have Facemask Rage are acting out because they never outgrew the childish tantrum they had as children. However, other doctors point out the stomping of the feet that usually accompanies a tantrum seems to be missing in Facemask Rage. Some scientists think that Facemask Rage is a mutated form of COVID-19. This theory hasn’t been tested, because the people who suffer Facemask Rage also won’t allow themselves to be tested for COVID-19.
Whatever the cause, the symptoms are well know by now. Suffers of facemask rage will:
- Begin acting out when asked to wear a facemask.
- They may become aggressive by:
- Throwing items like food.
- Yelling and raising their voice
- They may start pushing and trying to force their way inside.
- Spitting or coughing.
- They usually say things like:
- “You can’t make me.”
- “I don’t have to do what you tell me.”
- “You’re not my mother.”
- Or other such nonsense.
Until a cure is found for Facemask Rage it’s best to avoid the ragers and attempt to notify medical responders to help these poor people.
