A New Dating Site For Anti-Maskers Dubbed ‘OkStupid’ By Critics

A British dating site for anti-maskers is being dubbed ‘OkStupid’ by its numerous critics following its launch. The “Love in a COVID Climate” forum, which is hosted on Toby Young’s LockdownSceptics.org, aims to bring together people who believe that the coronavirus is one big hoax and have no intention of abiding by guidelines on wearing masks or socially distancing. Wow, what a bunch of winners!

  1. This seems like a terrible idea. “We’ve introduced a dating forum at (Lockdown Sceptics), so singles who feel the same way about the virus can meet and not have to worry about differing attitudes to social distancing,” Young tweeted when introducing the forum. Yikes.
  2. Critics have dubbed the site ‘OkStupid.’ Let’s be honest here: the UK has had 313,798 cases of coronavirus and 46,706 deaths from the illness so far. Something tells me it’s anything but a hoax, which makes encouraging people to be reckless and endanger others really, really selfish and stupid.
  3. People are seriously into the idea. One poster on the forum came from a 48-year-old who described himself as “no-nonsense” and said that he was “fed up with the back teeth of this woke nonsense and the bit by bit destruction of a once-decent country. Never worn a mask and won’t now,” according to The Guardian. Another posted, “Clever and good-looking guy, happy to date and kiss un-masked 35-50 ladies (slim, intelligent, confident and kind).” Wow.
  4. Still, Toby Young insists his anti-masker dating site is a great idea and super well-informed. “Most people wildly exaggerate the risk posed by the virus … according to John Ioannidis, the Stanford professor of medicine, you’re more likely to die in a road traffic accident if you’re under 65,” he claimed. “I’ve created Love in a COVID Climate for people who are properly informed about the risk, realize how small it is and want to meet other scientifically literate people who haven’t succumbed to what Bernard-Henri Lévy calls ‘psychotic delirium.'” People’s idiocy truly beggars belief.
