this is the greatest thing i’ve ever seen
THIS GIF LITERALLY JUST MADE MY ENTIRE WEEK A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER
If that’s not enough to make people realize that they’re fucking idiots, how about the fact that if enough people are left unvaccinated and catch the disease they aren’t vaccinated against, the chances of the disease mutating into a new and potentially more dangerous strain are increased! And guess what??? No vaccines exist for those new super-strains! Every body would be at risk because “vaccines cause autism and my child is a special snowflake!”. Which reminds me, why would anyone rather have a dead kid than an autistic kid? People with autism can live highly functional and fulfilling lives. Dead people can’t.
Motherfucking measles infections have skyrocketed in the US and Canada because of morons who don’t vaccinate their kids. And guess what? A lot of new doctors have never seen a measles case in their life. This means that if your kid catches measles, then they may not be able to be diagnosed in time to save their life. If your sick kid gives measles to a baby that hasn’t been vaccinated, that baby is probably not gonna live. If someone with a compromised immune system catches measles off of your super important child, they’re gonna suffer and die.
All because you were too uneducated and arrogant to understand how your actions have consequences.
TLDR; Nothing pisses me off more than parents who think they’re more important than public health.
I usually don’t add things onto posts, but I haven’t seen anyone else do this yet on this one. I just want to point out that all of the above is true, and that the doctor claiming there was a link between autism and MMR vaccines was discredited for making up evidence. His original study has since been RETRACTED which only tends to happen when you like about your findings for more money and fame. Furthermore, it only looked at twelve children. TWELVE. This alone does not balance out to the entire population, funnily enough. If that wasn’t bad enough, it was discovered that he was paid over $400,000 by lawyers who wanted the vaccine to be proved to link to autism so they could get more money for people going to court. There has been no other ‘evidence’ found by other studies.
TL;DR: If your biggest argument against vaccinating your child is that it supposedly ‘causes autism’, you really need to get your facts straight. You have no excuse.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ. STOP THIS NONSENSE.
me: ok i’ll study at 8:00
