Butthurt anti-vaxxers and news reporting responsibility.
« on: October 12, 2017, 12:56:45 PM »
So, parents are divorced, 50/50 custody, one wants their kid vaccinated and the other one doesn't.  Antivaxxer moron parent goes to jail for contempt of court for refusing to follow a court order to have the kid vaccinated; other parent takes kid for vaccinations.  Predictably, You are not allowed to view links.

What really pisses me off about the article is that it's all about butthurt antivaxxer moron's feelings.  Not one single word in there about the actual science behind vaccinations, about the risks of not vaccinating your children, nothing.

I don't give a three dollar fuck about antivaxxer moron parent's feelings.  Cheers to the non-moronic parent, and to the judge.  Polite note sent to the reporter suggesting that adding a few words on the science and statistics of vaccinations would have been appropriate.

For my part -- flu shot today.  So glad to be on insurance.

Nothing but trouble from divorce with kids ;-(  Some have it worse.  The superstitious parent (with no medical excuse) was wrong.  The court did correct the custody.

I am fortunate I have never had a bad reaction to a vaccine.  And I have to get a flu shot every year, to stay working in the medical business.

Strange but typical that the reporter thought the importance of the event was the controversy, not the science or the data.  Maybe he believes it is not the press's responsibility to educate the readership.  Unfortunately, focusing on the controversy does nothing to enlighten the ignorant.

Just more reinforcement for my belief that anti-vaxxers need to be sterilized and sent to an island colony in the Pacific.

Those who refuse vaccinations for their children should be exiled for the safety of the rest of us.  I hear the Arctic is warming nicely.

Well, for the public health, I would be willing to help all the anti-vaccinators move to some isolated place were they won't "plague" us further and can all die on their own. 

That makes me a hater?

This isn't really about science.  It is about hate, and acting politically about it.  Even if everyone was vaccinated, haters hate, and want to act out their autistic rage.
