whidbey: hardinparamedic: whidbey: I don't know about anti-vaxxers, but the anti-anti-vaxxers are kind of assholes. So that tells me something right away.

The assholedom has been thoroughly earned.

Yeah but what if it turns out that there really are side effects? That some people are sensitive to the vaccinations?

Have there even been studies done on this?

I still see a lot of blind hostility.


i hear a lot about 'double blindness' studies with vaccines

do we really want to inject chemicals that can cause double blindness into our children?

SuburbanCowboy: Anti-Vaxxers should have the right to not vaccinate, but they should have to live on an island together.


I was going to say asteroid, but I guess your idea is more plausible.

I loved the observation that everyone would get autism before all females get it.

One time my doctor told me that vaccines are safe, and I almost believed her.  But then I asked her if she's ever been paid money to show her vagina in a magazine, and she said "no".  Glad I asked the tough questions and found that she clearly doesn't have the proper background to have an opinion on this topic.

whidbey: Yeah well you could have said that to begin with instead of assuming my posts are trolls. Still seeing a lot of hostility and self-righteousness here. To me, that says there's more to what's going on.


Person A: "2+2 = 7 my good chap!"
Person B: "2+2 = 4 you fuking retard"

By your logic, person A is likely correct.

Which is why you're an idiot that kills children.

max_pooper: The anti-seatbelt stupidity is a pretty good parallel. You know the kind of moran who doesn't wear a seatbelt because he thinks it's safer to be thrown through the windshield in a crash than be strapped in the car when the inevitable Hollywood style car fire that happens during all car crashes.


Hey, i dated this chick who had a friend that dated a firefighter and he told me about a lady that was in a car accident and she was nearly cut in half by her seatbelt. She totally died from the thing that was designed to save her life. Ever since then I've put my life in the Lord's hands when I drive and He's seen fit to keep me safe for 20+ years now. But now I've got Obama breathing down my neck making it a damned law that I have to wear it. Obama wants me to go against God's will and get cut in half by a seatbelt. Thanks but no thanks. I'll trust the Lord any day over some seatbelt designed by a scientiest, or by that half-muslim in the White House.

threedingers: I had a Facebook friend (an old high school acquaintance) unfriend me after I debunked (very politely, mind you) her antivaxx talking point about formaldehyde in vaccines. Seems she couldn't handle her worldview being challenged.

whidbey: It's a two-way street. But you're basically saying "leave Big Pharma alone."


Are you going to put the on a *list*, Skookum?

Raoul Eaton: I can't really discern what really keeps antivaxxers going, given Wakefield's proven fakery--I guess it's just a general paranoia about "Big Pharma."


One of my favourite "conspiracy theories" is how Big Pharma is secretly funding the anti-vaccination movement.

There's good evidence that almost all car accidents happen on roadways. I'm not going to take that chance with my children. That's why I drive on the sidewalk. If some of your children get run over, that's a risk I'm willing to take.

I don't actually have any children, but it seems like a good parallel to the anti-vax attitude. Except for the "good evidence" part, I suppose.

We could put them on Vashon Is, but change the name to Vaxshun Is

Am I doing this right?.

It appears that autism is the next stage in human evolution.

Nowhere, really. Not until I learn more about it. I suspect it's probably more than just conspiratorial nonsense.


i have nothing to contribute, i just want to quote this for posterity

She's getting medical help from her pediatrician, so the child will (should?) recover with no permanent problems, but I so want to slap this woman up side the head with a stack of science.

This sounds like something you'd hear on The Simpsons.
