You Idiots: Jenny McCarthy, please report to my masturbatorium.


Dude, we're old, it's not 1997 anymore.  I lost all interest in having that coont in my masturbatorium when I saw an article where she detailed how she successfully copes with IBS, it was the cover story.  If that's your thing then dream away I guess.....

"way back when" - two of my grandmother's siblings died from complications from the first round of polio vaccines - none of them saw a doctor for the duration they were still at home because their daddy was suspicious

when i came up, we ALL got vaccinated - and some of us have cigar-shaped upper arm scars from it - it was not open to discussion - and there was no internet to say different

when my son came up, my mother started this jenny bs - well - i've read - yeah, no mom
if i got it, so will he - for the same reasons you told me about losing your uncles - she also fought me on anti-malaria meds when he went out of county (and is shocked malaria is showing up in the US!!)

this makes me angry on so many levels - esp when childhood illnesses may end up coming back and crippling other people who you, as a parent, didn't even think about. its selfishness beyond the pale

grrrrr

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Holy hell, the comments on that article are filled with teh derpitty derp.

I know. I'm tempted to give 'em the verbal smackdown with facts and stuff, then I remembered "they're Brits or some crap and my accent is too California, so they'd like totally not understand PROPER Californese English." Facts rarely persuade people with that much derpitty derp anyway. Matter of fact, I've never seen it happen.

So, let the War on Herd Immunity™ rage on, I guess.


You're probably right.  You should just take Canyon View Drive over to San Vesentay and make a left and get on the 405 North from there and get off at Mulhollen.

I find it amusing that Jenny McCarthy admits she tried to have sex with a tree while on Ecstasy and was heavy into the drug party crowd.  Who knows how many brain cells and chromosomes she fried due to heavy drug use.  However, her own poor lifestyle choices certainly COULDN'T be a contributing factor to her kid getting autism!  It HAS to be somebody else's fault.  I hope one day she has a moment of clarity and realizes the damage she is doing and accepts some responsibility for her own actions.

Yes. It's not their fault that their mom is a sociopathic moran. If they grow up the same way, then you can wish deadly yet preventable diseases of all kinds on them without being labeled "asshat" by some of us.


I'm going to have to disagree with you. It would be unfortunate for them if they were to die of measles, and they don't deserve it, but it would send a hell of a message to these idiots and it would probably save numerous lives. For the greater good and all that.

and those men are idiots for using that as a solutions since they should realize damn well that those types of people breed like rabbits and over-take darwinism by sheer numbers.

I don't think you understand the magnitude of what can happen through the population without vaccine.

Examples: Flu epidemic kills 50 million.
One in 750 children once died from whooping cough.
There used to be 10,000 deaths a year from diphtheria, 1,000 deaths fromHaemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) meningitis, and about 1 to 3 deaths out of every 1,000 cases of measles.

A quick summary.

Lurk sober post drunk: xria: Just in case anyone still has the mistaken impression that measles isn't a killer disease - 158,000 die a year from it still (mostly children, and mostly in low income countries without widespread vaccination) - given population growth the 2.6 million mostly children than died per year before widespread vaccinations started in the 1980s would now equate to more than 4 million children dying each year.

So campaigning against measles vaccination without knowing what you are talking about statistically makes you worse than Hitler - especially as at least his efforts weren't specifically targeting children for mass slaughter.

but jenny said it'd make my kid artistic.  you know, limp wrist and all that.  he's a real man, don't need no vitamins and crap.

I was discussing this with one of my neighbors the other day. To my surprise, he's against vaccines. The more he babbled about vaccinations killing more people than disease, the dumber and dumber he looked. It was like he was de-evolving in front of me. From man to monkey in just a few derp-filled sentences.

But we're not on a constant growth path either.
I'm a stupid breeder - screwed up the image URL.

But we're too far off topic. The moral of the story is that there's a societal drive to let those who want to shorten their lives - to do it. The planet cannot sustain an infinite number of people; there is a limit.

lordjupiter: homelessdude: I blame WebMd.

Seriously, I do put some of the blame on sites that lead people to believe that reading a few brief paragraphs, written by a questionable source, is a worthwhile substitute for a doctor's advice. Yes, there are quack docs and all that, but there are also a huge number of terrific ones. Yet, the clueless flock to listen to a 2 bit actress and playboy playmate with not even a portion of a degree in healthcare (she studied to be a nurse, but dropped out).

So yeah, I blame WebMD.....then again, sites like WebMD exist because stupid anti-vaccs demand to have a place that confirm their less then well thought out beliefs.

It is chicken and egg at the same time.

You can't blame the blurb format for the dummies that read incorrect blurbs from bad sources.

The problem is anecdotal evidence and advice on medical message boards, which are full of hypochondriacs and worst-case-scenarios.  Message boards are for complaining fanatics FAR more than they are for the praise of balanced people, who generally just go on with their lives rather than scouring the internet for partners in misery, or some place to vent.

Name just about any medical symptom and in 5 minutes of searching you can probably find a link between it and least 50 different conditions (many serious), multiple cautionary tales of failed treatments and horrific side-effects, and then nearly as many testimonials stating the exact opposite.


I've always liked how if I'm a symptom, I'll google it and the results page will be mostly something minor. But I'll see that one that's always cancer, and most of the time it's WebMD. Even if the symptom is just a stubbed toe.

Besides, one day I put in a bunch of stupid symptoms and I was diagnosed as being immature.

I agree, and let me add that in a sense the anti-vaxxers COULD be condemning innocent people to death when their own paranoia contributes to the spread of these diseases.  Providing a host for the continued spread of a preventable disease by refusing a generally safe innoculation based on wacky theories is one step away from intentionally infecting someone with it.

People who say "DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO WITH MY BODY!!" are missing this point.  It's not all about you and your confirmation bias regarding flu shots, or your fear of needles or mercury or whatever the boogeyman happens to be.  You are a regressive element in society.

I work in a microbiology lab doing food testing, I get to actually see how much contamination is in the food supply, and how little HACCP training a lot of "small, organic, family farms/food producers" actually have. We're currently trying to help a small(organic) cheese company with a contamination problem stemming from the cheesemakers NOT WASHING THEIR HANDS PROPERLY!

There are foundations (Gates for example) that are trying to eliminate certain diseases with vaccinations in third world countries. Rich first world idiot mothers are undermining this effort!

In part responsibility rests in the pseudo scientism that has embraced our culture. People think they are scientifically literate, but themselves don't know how to investigate and research data correctly. The CNN and mainstream sciency articles and online info convince some they have the ability to discern the data. And our culture has confused science with our society and think they are inherently good at it. Science isn't a belief system. One does not "believe" in evolution, for example, yet you will hear it everywhere. This pseudo science confuses the science as a tool with science as a belief. So when McCarthy and others read a few articles noting thimerisol in antibiotics, they don't have the scientific vey to examine research clearly denoting its rapid removal from the body combined with limited uptake.

You gotta love the lack of bias in the article, particularly this little piece o' BS...

"This will include some whose parents feared the safety of the jab, following research by Dr Andrew Wakefield linking it to bowel problems and autism. This work has since been roundly discredited."

Wakefield has not been discredited. Saying he was doesn't make it so.

For you folks who believe essentially anything spewed by the MSM, nothing I say will make a difference, but for those of you who have the ability to think critically, dig deeper. Find out the exact percentage of those with measles who were and were not vaccinated, then take a look at other outbreaks and find out the percentages there. Primary sources, folks. Good luck with that. If you like reading, check out Neil Z. Miller's research.

For those of you who rag on Jenny McCarthy, I seriously doubt you have any more credibility than her, or that you've looked into ASD as much as she has. You see a headline, or a two-minute hit piece and you think you're informed. Wake the crap up, you ignorant fools. If you have a child with autism, you know the exact day things went south, and I bet it was the day after the MMR.

Wakefield has not been discredited. Saying he was doesn't make it so.


On 28 January 2010, a five-member statutory tribunal of the GMC (British General Medical Council) found three dozen charges proved, including four counts of dishonesty and 12 counts involving the abuse of developmentally challenged children.  The panel ruled that Wakefield had "failed in his duties as a responsible consultant", acted both against the interests of his patients, and "dishonestly and irresponsibly" in his published research.  The Lancet immediately and fully retracted his 1998 publication on the basis of the GMC's findings, noting that elements of the manuscript had been falsified.  Wakefield was struck off the Medical Register in May 2010, with a statement identifying dishonest falsification in The Lancet research, and is barred from practising medicine in the UK.

That sounds pretty discredited to me...

I don't know what far left you're talking to, but the far left I know has a problem with GMOs  because they aren't studied properly. When you have every single cell of a corn kernel releasing pesticides, you actually need to study the effect of huge doses on pesticides in humans long-term.

I forget, what is it that really does cause autism again?


What types? Autism covers a broad spectrum of disorders. If you are serious, start here.


Even better just look at what they say about vaccinations. Yes, Jenny is an uninformed twit.

PsiChick: meanmutton: Hey, I'm right there with the Jenny McCarthy hate but let's be honest here: this anti vaccination bullshiat comes from antiscientific world views. It's not just the far right's views on evolution and global warming but also the far left's views on nuclear energy, genetically modified food, organics, "toxins", and this idiotic, all pervasive anti vaccine stuff that it killing children.

I don't know what far left you're talking to, but the far left I know has a problem with GMOs  because they aren't studied properly. When you have every single cell of a corn kernel releasing pesticides, you actually need to study the effect of huge doses on pesticides in humans long-term.

You are of course refering to bacillus thurungus(bt) which is used in large quantities by organic farmers and is only toxic to certain moths-right? Which has to undergo rigorous testing before being approved for use, while so called "traditional" cross breeding, which moves large unregulated chunks of genetic material (including undesirable traits, such as toxicity), is not tested or regulated at all. Educate yourself before spouting off ok?

I think we should all direct some anger toward Jim Carrey. He was married to her when all this shiat was going on, and he didn't do anything to stop her.

Free Radical: World needs less people. Especially stupid ones so I'm fine with this.


If anti-vaxxers were the only ones at risk of the malignant stupidity of anti-vaxxers, I'd be all vaya con dios about it too. But their ignorance puts those with suppressed or weakened immune systems at greater risk, ie infants or chemo patients.

People, get your kids their farking shots.

Melanie's Marvelous Measles

Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are quite benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body. Having raised three children vaccine-free and childhood disease-free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all. Stephanie Messenger lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and devotes her life to educating people about vaccine dangers and supporting families in their natural health choices. She has the support of many natural therapists and natural-minded doctors.

Clemkadidlefark: No amount of Statistics, decades of investigative reports or common sense will sway minds fixated on vaccines.

Inject your children with God knows what and hope this doesn't happen. Remember, hope really really hard ...

Why would you call medically proven vaccines "god knows what"?  They've been administered billions of times.  How much more proof do you need that all they do is stop a person from getting polio?

But I am afraid of science and progress. I only eat foods that were around before agriculture was invented.
