I was on a more mainstream board, and dared to admit I do not vax. I was pretty much bombarded with demands that I tell them why I do not vax and present research. I did tell them my reason (alert! This gave them all sorts of fodder) but refused to get into presenting research papers and such. I was pretty dang sure by this point any research I presented would have been met with scorn.
So - want to know what some vaxxers think of us?
-we are stupid
-we do not understand research or even what research means
-we do not understand SCIENCE. (science is a God)
we are selfish. We are not contributing to herd immunity
-if we were unselfish, not stupid or understood science we would vax, That is their evidence.
-the only, only reason to not vaccinate is if your child has a medical issue that makes vaxxing not appropriate.
To be honest I could use a hug.
To think I naively thought most parents were live and let live - you do what you think is best for your kid, and I will do what is best for mine.
I will also take any kind words - but be careful if you care about such things as I am sure some of them are watching (see troll thread) and might cut and paste.
