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.
SuburbanCowboy: Anti-Vaxxers should have the right to not vaccinate, but they should have to live on an island together.
nmrsnr: And because this chart gave me so much joy last autism/vaccination thread, I'll share again:[img.fark.net image 750x477]
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.
whidbey: I don't know about anti-vaxxers, but the anti-anti-vaxxers are kind of assholes. So that tells me something right away.
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.
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."
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."
impaler: nmrsnr: And because this chart gave me so much joy last autism/vaccination thread, I'll share again:[img.fark.net image 750x477]I loved the observation that everyone would get autism before all females get it.
whidbey: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: whidbey: I don't know about anti-vaxxers, but the anti-anti-vaxxers are kind of assholes. So that tells me something right away.I wanna see where you're going with this. Tell us your conclusion.Nowhere, really. Not until I learn more about it. I suspect it's probably more than just conspiratorial nonsense.
