Now, wearing facemasks has been a point of debate for over a year...

Because, sadly, a staggering number of people still protest against wearing them in public spaces.

More and more people have been joining the anti-mask movement...

With many arguing that being made to wear a face mask during the global pandemic is "against their human rights."

Studies have shown there could be genuine psychological reasons as to why some people don't want to wear a face covering.

"When faced with uncertain situations over which we have no control, we tend to exercise it wherever we can, so we feel safe," one expert said, according to HuffPost. "Some will feel safer exercising their control over not wearing a mask, while others will feel safer exercising their control to wear one."

Other experts blame mixed messages from those in power.

"The mixed messages we’ve all received are probably the main culprit for non-mask wearing. Inconsistent recommendations, along with historic polarization of political parties, magnify a common mistrust of government mandates."

But, whatever the reasons, masks have become an extremely polarizing topic...

With "anti-mask" protests continuing to take place all around the world.

But, with the growth of anti-maskers, there has been a definite incline in those taking a stand against the harmful ideology.


The latest example of an anti-masker trying to get their own way happened on a flight - however, the cabin crew were not in the mood to mess around.

Ryanair's policy requires all passengers to wear a mask during flights, with both their nose and mouth covered.

But the woman refuses to wear one...
