Coronadulting (coronavirus + adulting)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic led to the terms “coronadult” (coronavirus + adult) and “coronadulting” (coronavirus + adulting).

“Why are you acting like a Coronateen when you should be a coronadult” was posted on Twitter by Summer Sauce on March 18, 2020. “It is so hard to Coronadult. #coronadulting” was posted on Twitter by Stacie on March 24, 2020. “Coronadult” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on March 22, 2020, defined as “Antonym of covidiot.”

“Coronadulting: Thoughts on Adulting in the Age of Covinfantilization” by Stephers was posted on Pieces of Mindful on July 9, 2020, defining the term this way:

“Coronadulting: Devising potential solutions collaboratively with others who preserve freedom (amidst rulers unlawfully usurping personal liberties, such as health freedom, bodily autonomy, and food sovereignty). For example, these may include driving without a face mask, shopping in a store without a face mask, hiking without a face mask, doing yard work without a face mask, and most important, thinking independently — again, without a face mask. Moreover, coronadults consider options outside-of-the-box such as creating like-minded communities (whether in-person or online) for mutual aid and support. Coronadulting may also include such other mundanities as picking up face masks and disposable gloves littered by non-coronadults.”

Urban Dictionary
coronadult
Antonym of covidiot.
In contrast to the typical covidiot, as a coronadult, I strive to remain informed about scientific research, government policy, and medical recommendations regarding COVID-19.

Coronadulting: Thoughts on Adulting in the Age of Covinfantilization
Posted on July 9, 2020 by Stephers

First, let’s review a few definitions:

Adulting: (defined in Merriam Webster)

To adult is to behave like an adult, to do the things that adults regularly have to do. This includes things like having a job and living independently, sure, but also such mundanities as taking clothes to the dry cleaners (and remembering to pick them up), making and keeping dental appointments, getting your car registered, doing yardwork.

Infantilize: (defined in The Free Dictionary)

To treat or condescend to as if still a young child: “The Victorian physician infantilized his patient” (Judith Moore). To reduce to an infantile state or condition: “It creates a crisis that infantilizes them—causes grown men to squabble like kids about trivial things” (New Yorker).

Coronadulting definition: No results found for “Coronadulting”.

As there were no results from my search, here is my definition of Coronadulting: Devising potential solutions collaboratively with others who preserve freedom (amidst rulers unlawfully usurping personal liberties, such as health freedom, bodily autonomy, and food sovereignty). For example, these may include driving without a face mask, shopping in a store without a face mask, hiking without a face mask, doing yard work without a face mask, and most important, thinking independently — again, without a face mask. Moreover, coronadults consider options outside-of-the-box such as creating like-minded communities (whether in-person or online) for mutual aid and support. Coronadulting may also include such other mundanities as picking up face masks and disposable gloves littered by non-coronadults.
