Jim from Saint Paul: someonelse: Jim from Saint Paul: So did ya'll miss where she says they realize they were wrong?

Too much work?

I missed it. What part was that?

SkittlesAreYum: Jim from Saint Paul: So did ya'll miss where she says they realize they were wrong?

Too much work?

No where in the article does it say that. If you're referring to another article, then yes, it is too much work because I'm not about to go searching for it.

You know what. When I reread that, I realized I was totally worong. My apologies.

This is the second time in 2 days that my snark-o-meter and my reading comprehension has gotten me in trouble.

I should really STFU.


It's cool.

As a Packers fan I want to LOL at Cutler's stupid. But since his kids are involved, I cannot.

Serious Black: robertus: We split up the MMRV vaccine into two shots for our kid (MMR one week, then varicella a few weeks later) because studies have found an increased risk of febrile seizures with the combo shot. I had febrile seizures when I was a kid, so were wary of upping her risk. And we were going to the beach like 7 days after the appointment, which was right in the "more seizures" wheelhouse.

The conversation we had with our pediatrician started with "We're not antivaccine kooks, I promise. We want our kid to get all the vaccines she needs. Vaccines are the single greatest public health accomplishment in the history of ever. All we want to do is give her the MMR and V shots separately, because findings and heredity." It kills me that the entire conversation needed that "we're not lunatics" preamble.

/Doc was totally good with it.
//Kid had her first febrile seizure this past December. Terrifying, but we knew what was up.

There really is nothing wrong with what you did. And there's nothing wrong with admitting that vaccines can and do sometimes have negative side effects because, as you noted, scientific studies have shown strong evidence for these vaccines causing them. The febrile seizures you mention are actually listed in the article I linked as a side effect of vaccines. But there is no evidence that any vaccine causes children to have an autism spectrum disorder.


Oh, yeah. Absolutely no question. I was totally comfortable with the decision we made. I just hated that the world is such that I felt the need to preface the conversation with the pediatrician with "Jenny McCarthy is insane and Wakefield is a total quack. Please don't lump us in with those lunatics."

I really want to take a jab at Quitler, but poking fun at unvaccinated kids to low even for me. Give your kids at shot at life, Jay.

So, I wonder:

If they told Cutler that there was a vaccine to prevent diabetes, would he be against that, too?

Has anyone done a study on the link between silicone breast implants in the mother and autism in the child?  Or peroxide?

An open letter to Jay Cutler:

Vaccinate your kids, dude.

Signed,

One Bears fan.

/P.S. Might want to rethink that whole "marry-a-vacuous-reality-show-quasi-celebrity-'cause-she's-hot-for-now " thing, too.  Just sayin'.
 
2014-03-14 01:18:11 PM
No, please don't.  Sorry, but these children are going to have to start dying before the dipshiat community understands the value of science.  They bought their tickets.  I say, let them crash.

Cutler always struck me as an aspie so I'm not surprised

Reading through the link, I just want to say...

The Sun pushed fraudulent bullshiat as truth? Next, you're going to tell me that bear shiat in the woods, aren't you?

Autism isn't increasing.

The rate of diagnosis is increasing.

Because I didn't get my DX until I was 30, during my childhood I ended up basically being beaten for things that I could not control. Today, my kids have been diagnosed, and instead of beatings, they're given help in school. Neither of them will ever be locked into a 4x4 concrete room because they have a temper tantrum.

Vaccines didn't cause our autism.

I can trace it back through my mom's side of the family, and through my husband's father's family, now that I know what to look for. Family members that were labeled crazy or retarded may have actually been autistic. And vaccines didn't have a damned thing to do with it.

When I had my daughter, I wasn't going to vaccinate. Why? well, because not vaccinating was trendy, basically. That's what this boils down to. It's trendy. And they can lie to themselves all they want to, but that's all this is... a vicious, malevolent fad. Luckily, my mom (a doctor of nursing) yelled at me until I came to my senses.

Did you know that since the introduction of the HiB vaccine, the peds floors in hospitals have seen a marked decrease in pneumonia cases? Hell, in all kinds of cases.

Did you know that my town, Huntsville, AL, has one of the highest autism rates in the country? Also, we have one of the highest rates of PhDs in the country. Hmm. Now, correlation does not equal causation, but when just about every engineer has a kid with autism, you have to start to wonder if vaccines are causing it, or smart parents are causing it...

Bunny Deville: Autism isn't increasing.

I do wonder about this.  

I feel like in our  grandparents day they were just casually diagnosed as "funny feller" or "ain't quite right in the head", and everyone went about their day.

SlagginOff: SubBass49: Yeah...don't mind me...just adding to my checklist of reasons I farking HATE Jay Cutler.  On the upside, I make it a point to watch Bears games whenever I can, just to laugh at his mopey emo ass getting sacked every 8 downs...so ratings are up, which is good.

You sound well adjusted.


Charger fans absolutely hate Cutler, just because he was the biggest shiat talker on the field, but Rivers got all the blame when he called him out from the sidelines in that famous video. Never mind that Cutler was pointing and yelling at the Chargers bench after he went three-and-out, and had talked all kinds of shiat from the get go, then pouted all alone on the bench later on. It was all Rivers' fault in the eyes of everyone.

That's why we hate Cutler. He's a little biatch who talks the talk, but can't walk the walk.

Pretty much this. There was always that one weird kid in every grade, if not more, right? It's just that now we have a name for it and those kids get help instead of being written off.

Jim from Saint Paul: So did ya'll miss where she says they realize they were wrong?

Too much work?


Was that this part?
You know what, I've ready too many books about autism.

Or was it this part?
There is a pediatric group called Homestead-Homestead or Homefront, now I have pregnancy brain I got them confused-they've never vaccinated any of their children, and they haven't had one case of autism.

Or this part?
And now one in 88 boys is autistic. That's a really scary statistic. The vaccinations have changed over the years, there's more mercury and other...

Now, I see the part where they point out that the supposed study this scare is based one was fraudulent. That's not Kristin Cavallari saying that though, it's deadspin linking to an ABC report, she never said that SHE was wrong. Deadspin just showed the link to use for debunking the anti-vacc bullshiat.

Rodeodoc: verbaltoxin: I hope the Cutlet doesn't get the measels or something.

What are the odds anyone will catch something from a Cutler?  It will probably go high and wide.


Only because Cutler got blowed up during a 7-step drop for which the o-line couldn't block.

I'm really sorry to hear about your childhood experiences with being abused because of a mental issue. Sadly, your story is not that out of the norm even today. My brother and sister-in-law have a daughter with Down syndrome, and their network of friends have passed on terrible tales of fellow developmentally challenged kids getting beaten or neglected because people thought they should react to things the same way a child without those challenges would. It's obscene.

I really hope your life has taken a turn for the better.

You know what DOES increase the risk of autism?  Waiting until your 30s and 40s to have children.

Vaccines?  Not so much.

I see Im not the only one to realize there is a Body Builder as well as the NFL player named Jay Cutler.

ransack.: "Pregnancy brain", I feel like if I was a woman I would be kind of offended by that. I didn't even know it was a stereotype that pregnancy made women stupider. But now this actual woman verifies it.


Stupid?  No.

Crazy?  Yes.

You're quite literally hormonally imbalanced while pregnant, or rather your hormones are balanced, but in a configuration that prioritizes the fetus and not your mental health.  Chemical depression, weird and unnecessary specific food cravings, and severe and abrupt mood swings are entirely common.

Additionally, for many women in certain stages of pregnancy (especially the later ones where there's actual physical difficulty on top of everything) some level of insomnia tends to be a problem and they tend to be easily distracted in the same way someone with chronic pain or itching is.  This can cause "mind fart" type mental lapses pretty easily.

Maybe a nicer way to put it is that you're essentially on mind-altering drugs produced by your own biology while pregnant.  It's not a "stereotype"; while it doesn't affect every woman the same way and some are relatively unaltered, it's a very real thing that your doctor will usually even anticipate and have a watch on your symptoms for.

// Albeit this is just her excuse for blanking on the name of the organization; she's anti-vaccine because of crippling stupidity that's not pregnancy-related.

If Jay Cutler made good decisions, we wouldn't have the thread above this where DeAngelo Hall gets to pretend he's a good CB because he got 4 INT in a game.
