“Social” Distancing is Incorrect
Okay, news sources have been telling us not to be in close proximity to other human beings. I get it.
But why is it called “social distancing”? If you were distancing socially, then that would include conversing via the internet or ANY type of contact at all, right? I mean, chatting on the internet is referred to as “social media”, so if the news says to practice “social distancing”, what they're mistakenly saying is don't even chat, tweet, facebook, e-mail, instagram, phone, etc.
So instead of using that hacky, worn-out, wrong term “social distancing”, here are some suggestions on what we CAN use, to define “keeping our bodies away from others”:
Physical Distancing (my favorite)
...and so on and so forth....
So whichever term you wanna use, just make sure it makes sense!
