This one might divide us

And by us I mean the three or so people that read my blog. (There may be more, but if you don't comment, I'll never know) (yes, that was a pathetic plea for comments, I'm sad like that and need validation from strangers)

I saw the post today about measles breaking out in NYC and it infuriates me to no end. First, the idea of not vaccinating your child is insane and illogical in my eyes. I've yet to see a single study that shows that something vaccines do is worse than dying from the thing it's protecting you from. If you have one, please do share (so I can promptly go science on your ass and refute every claim with evidence)

And I know I begged for comments but the first person to say vaccines cause autism is getting a Blu e*cig shoved in every available orifice (and some I'll just make available). The same lady who has been on this "vaccines made my kid autistic" crusade pushes electronic cigarettes.. Because cancer is better than autism. Don't even get me started on the fact that her kid was misdiagnosed.. She makes me want to punch puppies.

Have you ever SEEN pictures of people with measles? Whooping cough? Polio?? What about mumps? A girl I worked with got the mumps LAST year. Oh, but not regular mumps, a different strand of mumps. Because when the virus is introduced, it can start mutating again. So thanks for that.

Here's the deal, there are a TON of people out there (right here) that would (and are) doing every single thing in their power to have a child and if your snot nosed little ankle biter gives theirs fucking MEASLES before they are old enough to get vaxxed. They will most likely go rabid wolverine on your ass.

You don't want to vax? Fine, buy and island and quarantine yourself. Quit putting my hypothetical child's life in danger because the host of SINGLED OUT told you vaccines were bad!

  1. I'm searching for an article a friend of mine shared. It was written from the perspective of someone who wasn't vaccinated as a child and how horribly sick she was and how she suffered most of her childhood with illnesses her parents could have prevented by vaccinating her. It was eye opening. I think it's pure evil not to vaccinate your kids. I'm ok with spreading out the shots but to not do it at all is criminal in my book.

  4. I have to agree with you on the vaccination subject. I have a friend who is a nurse and say how they now see cases of diseases that had disappeared now reappearing because of parents not wanting to vaccinate their children. I'm all for wanting to make an informed decision when it comes to the health of your children, but sometimes you also have to look at the obvious also.

    Heidi - interesting article.

  5. This is a great rant...cause it's true. I cannot believe the idiocy of the general public in pushing for anti-vaccine campaigns. Seriously, just look at the history of influenza. I just happened upon your blog and loved this post!!!
