Help!

My boyfriend of more than 10 years has become an anti-mask idiot. He is so amazing in every other way but he has suddenly become obsessed with anti-government, anti-lockdown bullshit. I think his friends are a bad influence, they are a bunch of motorcycle/tattooist dudes. They are great guys, super fun but when they all get together it becomes a confederation of dumb anti science bros. Its becoming embarrassing. All their social media posts are so cringe, they remind me of Trump supporters, even though such a comparison would infuriate by BF and his friends. How did my life turn into this?????

You forgot to have principles or values in the face of relative comfort. That's what happened.

90% of an iceberg is below the surface. He's amazing in every other way if you keep your blinders on. Anti-mask is at heart a giant F-U to everyone else's lives for the 'freedom' of your own. Let's remember that nearly 18000 Canadians have died of covid. I personally know a woman who was in a coma for over a month and months later still has 90% paralysis in one arm.

His brain has been melted by stupidity around masks. Move on and save your mental and physical health. Be safe!

I think really stupid people of various stripes all fit neatly into what I would call a rainbow of stupidity. Various shades of idiots who think very highly of themselves and fancy themselves as non-conformists, but are actually on the same spectrum of dumbassery.

Break up with him.

They all sound incredibly tone deaf. How can you be friends with that, let alone date it? "Bad influence"? He's an adult, that pathetic excuse doesn't work anymore.

So many memories!

Your post brings back some lousy memories of my experience with my first husband. When we met (long ago), he was very hippie-like. However, he later became very into the biker scene. Hippies were much more peaceable. Bikers, not so much. He started wearing all the gear (Dayton boots, black leather vests, chain on his wallet, etc.). Then he got a subscription to Easy Rider magazine, and that was my breaking point. Back then, the articles favoured things like “How to get your woman to serve your beer naked”, and similarly misogynistic ideals. I left and he continued on in the same lifestyle. To this day he’s still doing it. Thankfully with someone else.

To bail on that loser.....It will only get worse. Do not make excuses for idiots like this.....They only get more stupid as time goes on. Look at what happened in America with those Idiots. Also the fact you could catch Covid from that moron.

Pack your shit up and find someone with a functioning brain.

Anti-maskers are either idiots or assholes. The worst of them are both. They are attractive to some people because they play the free thinking "badass" angle. But anyone who thinks they are smarter and more knowledgeable than people who studied a subject for years at university should be ignored. Whatever they have to say is a waste of air.

It must be hard

... because you're so open-minded with your pov. Shouldn't this be a "having trouble accepting any other worldly views" confession?
