Dripping Springs man bares thoughts on mask mandates at heated school board meeting

Less than half an hour into Dripping Springs ISD’s board meeting Monday, 15-year resident and DSISD parent James Akers shared his thoughts on the latest discussion surrounding mask requirements in schools.

“I do not like government, or any other entity — just ask my wife — telling me what to do,” he said. “But, sometimes I’ve got to push the envelope a little bit, and I’ve just decided that I’m going to not just talk about it, but I’m going to walk the walk.”

Akers then began removing articles of clothing as he outlined all the different laws and social expectations in place — stopping at red lights, wearing professional attire at work and not parking in handicapped parking spots — people are expected to follow. Masks, he said, are one of those things people should abide by in the effort of doing the right thing for the safety of others.

Hi @primevaldad ,It is the first time that I comment to you but I am going to risk and say what I thought when reading the post, well I am a sincere man and I will say what I think, apparently the man in question wanted to express. his discontent at having to follow the rules, taking off his clothes was a way to get attention, I think we all have the possibility to reveal ourselves, but that's it since the rules are established and some have sanctions, the other thing is that possibly his wife already has him tired of getting tired of his opinions or rules, I don't know :)


@lupega, it's nice to connect with you. Thank you for your response.
Undressing was an interesting approach. I think his desire was to express his contentment with the rules! He demonstrated how there are plenty of rules we all follow , even when (as he says his wife could attest) we don't like "being told what to do".

I guess he wanted the full attention of the board members. It seems it worked! haha


Certainly got attention!
I hope he effectively made his point.
