She used to be scientific - she is technically trained, she is a radio engineer - but now... now she has literally told me that Covid is a hoax propagated by the evil Democrats. Did I mention she was queer and trans both? Or that her intelligence is in the highest percentile? She wasn't like this before the current administration.
I cannot understand what happened to her. I cannot comprehend what would turn a previously rational, progressive, science-aligned person into a soul who thinks vast conspiracies are stealing basic freedoms, that all scientists and doctors (ALL of them!) are part of a vast scam to steal those freedoms... or even that those so-called freedoms are even important compared to not dying of an incurable disease.
I am at a loss. I care about this person, but... she has gone straight-up insane about this stuff.
