Ah, come on ^_^

 

Even though "WildKingdom" brought up Hilter's "Mein Kampf" and the Jews, I wouldn't count this as a case where you can apply Godwins law.

Under the circumstances, she had a possibly valid concern about the influence of a source on the value of the information and Hitler is a really good example for that.

Yours are just as repetitive shrug.gif

Your arguments.  The No-vax arguments.  You know what I meant.

Seriously? This is hilarious! I am a non-vaxer and I have friends who DO vax and we have NEVER gotten "into it" over vaxing. We know each others take on the story and we respect each others decisions about this subject. We are doing what we think is right for *our* families. And no one should tell someone else how to raise their children. Except for of course in the case of abuse. I find that both sides end up fighting and trying to defend what they believe and the conversation just ends up at a dead end.

In real life I have never gotten into it over vaccines, except with doctors and the like.  Most of that has been respectful.  I have had supportive family but others do not.

 

In any event, online is some sort of alternate reality where the walls are down and the fallout from saying what you really think is low...so you do it.  For good or bad.
