We’re not quite sure what’s going on here. There’s a story at The Atlantic right now entitled, “How to Socialize Safely in the Booster Era,” but Twitchy favorite Ahmed Al Assliken has a screenshot of a different headline:

It looks like The Atlantic might have changed the headline, because the piece does include the line, “Is it still safe to hang out with someone who is vaccinated but not boosted?” It’s quite the conundrum:
As the weather gets colder in much of the country and people bring more of their socializing indoors, this variety of vaccination histories introduces questions Americans didn’t previously have to deal with. Is it still safe to hang out with someone who is vaccinated but not boosted? Can unvaccinated little kids safely spend time with unboosted adults? And will the new coronavirus variant, Omicron, further complicate the risk calculus of an already complicated winter?
Unvaccinated little kids around unboosted adults? The horror!
Changed the headline I see. pic.twitter.com/1hMHu6CsER

Well, we all knew this was coming. If you don't have a booster, you're unvaccinated. The goalposts keep changing.
At this point, if someone doesn't want to associate with me because I'm not "boosted," I'm fine with them being out of my life altogether.

Just wait til the Branch COVIDians are counting the number of boosters you've had.

The conservative case for mindlessly accepting what the government tells you and taking boosters every four months.

Didn’t it? Just mask for 100 days and it’ll be over.
No it’s not ok to hang out with us, please stay away

We socialize now the same way we socialized a week ago, a month ago, a year ago.
Vaccinated or not, get out and live your lives people.
Some people will keep fear mongering and moving goal posts. That isn't reality.

Just keeeeeeeeeep moving those goalposts

It’s like you’ve made no attempt to keep up with the science.

Joe, have you noticed that there’s not one positive comment to this 3 hours later? (I read them all. They were hilarious!) Sometimes it’s not everyone else Joe. Sometimes it’s you. Come back to the real world my man.

Is this satire? If it is satire it is rather humorless. If this is a serious piece not you need to reexamine your ability of basic risk assessment.

Imagine living your life glued to people’s vaccination status. Oh the hard life of a white liberal.

You should stop writing about families, parenting and relationships. You’re bad at it and provide terrible advice. Seek help… or stay in your basement, alone please.
— RandAlThor (@RandallAlThor) December 6, 2021
Keep in mind when planning those family gatherings that the booster’s effects take about two weeks to kick in fully, so be careful in the interim.
