Then there's no solution. Pity. They all seem to change their minds pretty quick once they get sick.

FTFA: Vaccine resisters can't be persuaded if they feel disrespected.

They can blow it out their farking asses.

So, Mr. Armpitfart von Toejam over here says we have to be more politically correct instead of telling it like it is.
 
2021-07-16 7:13:50 PM  
That's awfully snowflakey of them.

Reality doesn't give a f*ck about your feelings.

Man the hell up and get the shot.

The anti-vax movement is going viral.
 
2021-07-16 7:14:37 PM  
Respect is a 2-way street... you get what you give... right wingers have no respect for anybody.
 
2021-07-16 7:15:20 PM  
To quote them: fark their feelings.

They really have only themselves to blame that that is so satisfying to say right now.
 
2021-07-16 7:16:39 PM  
If it were up to me, we would be requiring proof of vaccination for entry into restaurants, bars or any confined space.  Don't want to get vaccinated?  Fine.  But you aren't going to fark things up for the rest of us.  Go and get sick at your idiotic rallies for all I care.

So as you can see, I am very sensitive to the feelings of anti-vaxxers.

"Facts don't care about your feelings"
 
2021-07-16 7:18:52 PM  
maybe we would care more about their feelings if they weren't:

1) openly dedicated to waging war on the rest of us
2) only resisting getting the shot because they think it will fark the rest of us over somehow
 
2021-07-16 7:18:53 PM  
I'm not going to pretend a position is worthy of respect just because the people who hold it are incapable of changing their minds unless they're coddled like a pouty child.

"Vaccine resisters can't be persuaded if they feel disrespected."


Let 'em die then. No skin off my ass.
 
2021-07-16 7:19:12 PM  
Proponents of the vaccine are unwilling or unable to understand the thinking of vaccine skeptics - or even admit that skeptics may be thinking at all.

Mindlessly regurgitating crap they read on Facebook/Twitter != "thinking"
 
2021-07-16 7:19:42 PM  
If you want respect, you have to be respectful of others as well.  Since the anti-vaxxers just want their asses kissed instead of participating in society, they can go fark themselves.

No. Children need to be taught from a very young age that their feelings don't matter at all when it comes to facts.

The boomer generation is already beyond help.
 
2021-07-16 7:22:16 PM  
That's too farking bad. People around here already know how much of a shiat I give about them, since the beginning of this little adventure.

I really tried to read that article but it kept going on and on saying the same basic thing.
 
2021-07-16 7:28:58 PM  
Everybody gets a shot.

You can either have the vaccine, or a massive dose of the coronavirus.

*jeopardy music*

I'm sure the author thought he had a valid point here but jesus god this is stupid.

"But when you look at patterns of uptake in the United States, two factors stand out, factors that are larger in their effect than partisanship: age and density. The older you are and the denser your community, the more likely you are to be vaccinated. The younger you are, and the more rural your community, the less likely you are to have gotten it. This reflects the real facts about the risk of death from COVID. People may be wildly overestimating their risk from the vaccine and underestimating their risks from COVID - but they have the directional thinking correct. Those who are in less danger, act like it. "

Which is then followed by what negates it.

"These risk-benefit calculations are not entirely defined by health outcomes either but involve psychology and politics. "

Grow up, you farking snowflakes. If you don't want to be part of civilization, leave. And you can't come back in.
 
2021-07-16 7:32:15 PM  
The CDC and Dr. Fauci say alarmist, fear-mongering nonsense about the risks to children all the time and seem to suggest constantly that life cannot return to normal for children until pediatric COVID vaccines are approved and taken up. That is, people can see with their own eyes that our public-health establishment is not only anxious to censor dissent but is also habituated to lying about the risks in order to justify unnecessary public-health interventions.

Someone powerful will have a grandkids who dies. Then the full legality of pandemic measures will be exercised.

Honestly, I could care less about those unvaccinated dying from covid.

/friends,family, co-workers all vaxxed
//looking forward to seeing what happens to the stupid dummies that don't get vaxxed
///they're the control group 🪦
 
2021-07-16 7:35:38 PM  
states have right to say get the vaccine or face legal stuff.  bring it on and make sure the fine/jail time/etc is so high that only the most die hard anti-vaccine person don't get it.

always wounder if a state could say not  getting your kids vaccine count as a form of child abuse?

Author is misusing the term "skeptic".  Skeptics will believe something if there is credible evidence for it.  These people are deniers and conspiracy theorists.  Actual skeptics have been vaxxed.

I pissed off a few people today when I couldn't take their anti-vax stupidity anymore. As soon as you call them out on their BS and point out they could kill someone else by infecting them if they get it. they act like you just kicked their baby.

Guys, come on. You have to be nice to them if you don't want them to die. I, however, want them to die so I can up the mockery twice as much.

But some of y'all are better people than me. You have to be nice. Maybe. If you feel like it.

Float a dart gun ban and a covid vax ban.

They'll be vaccinating each other multiple time in the face in no time.

Yeah, I used to be nice to conservatives because I believed they were just delicate little flowers who could only be convinced to give a shiat about other people if you treated them like royalty.

Then they never actually gave a shiat about other people. Because everything they say is a lie and they are human garbage with no actual values.
