I'm wondering how many of you have experienced a loss of all credibility when you "came out" as anti-vaxers, or even just questioned the system. How did you deal with this reaction?
For example I used to be part of another mama message board and the moment I brought up an unease of routine vaccines I was immediately shunned and thought of as a "paranoid conspiracy theoriest." I used to be thought of as a valid member of the group, who could participate in conversation (and sometimes give advice) without being told to leave or just completely brushed off and ignored. I know internet relationships are different than real life but it makes me nervous to say anything to any of my peers regarding this issue.... especially with how much my sister talks about "mommy wars."
