In all honesty, I am very conflicted about whether I believe public schools should honor religious and philosophical exemptions.  I definitely think private schools and daycares should not have to.

 

 

that would-be  hard for many!

I think private schools and daycares should be able to set their own policies.  I am conflicted about public schools.

I just wanted to say this thread made me think. Made me realize saying "pro" something immediately makes you think "anti". I assume this is why it's prochoice, prolife (no one wants to be anti either of those things).

My username is meant as an expression of my love for science. It's not specific to my parenting choices or meant as a challenge to suggest others are antiscience, but I see now it might be taken as that.

I just looked to see if I could remove the "pro" from it to be just "sciencemum", but I don't see a place to do that. If anyone could help I will do it. smile.gif

I think you have to PM an admin.

I realize we've beaten this topic to a pulp, but I'm going to make one last stab at it. How would pro-schedule sound...as in believing in following the vaccine schedule as recommended by your country's national health agency? It sounds a tad awkward, and it may only make sense to our regular posters and lurkers. But I think it addresses a lot of the language concerns enumerated in this thread.

I'm still not sure what expression would work for me. Believe it or not, I'm constantly learning and open to following my country's schedule. It would take more rigorous research and less "post-marketing surveillance," but 100% of us need to be open to being wrong. Anyway, that's why "anti-schedule" won't fit the bill. I'm a schedule skeptic for sure, but that just rolls off the tongue awkwardly. lol.gif

One of the easiest and most immediate ways to break down communication, even if unintended, is by mispronouncing someone's name or by calling them something they don't want to be called. In asking ourselves what each group should be called I very much believe it is up to the group being addressed. If the intention is communication, then this is part of the effort to keep the communication going. It may not be someone's intent, but when you call someone something they don't want to be called then the conversation is pretty much over. See how quickly this conversation went south?

So, I say this as a non-vaccinating person: What would *I* want and what is my intent? What I want is to not have a label put on me that I don't agree with. And my intent is to be heard.

At the risk of alienating my "side", I gotta be honest and say how I feel. If they don't wanna be called pro-compliance, then don't call them that. Doing so will not help the cause, it will only deepen the divide.

Carry on!

I don't have the visceral reaction to pro-schedule that I do to pro-compliance, but it is awkward.  I'm also not sure it's technically accurate.  I *am* pro-schedule in general, but I delayed a few vaxes.  I think many of us pro-vaxxers have done similarly.  And to be perfectly honest, I feel quite differently about a decision to put off HepB for a newborn than to skip all vaxes altogether -- both are technically off schedule, but have very different implications and motivations.
