Thought on title of this forum...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Couldn't we call it 'I'm vaccine-free' instead?

Something about 'I'm NOT Vaccinating' feels off to me. It almost feels like it's rebelling against vaccination, rather than just going with what organically IS, which is a vaccine-free body.

Does anyone else feel this way? I don't have this totally processed through my head, but I thought I'd mention it and start a conversation.

Furthermore, '....members who have made the decision not to vaccinate' doesn't really serve me. My family is vaccine free, but they were born that way, too, and it wasn't really a 'decision', as much as the default state of our existence.

I'd like to start shifting the tide of 'vaxes are what people do', to 'vaxes are a good/ service that some people choose to purchase'.

I'd rather it read '....members who have not made the decision to vaccinate'....

Anyone have thoughts?

I really like this idea, personally. "I'm not vaccinating" sounds almost petulant somehow.

Vaccine-free is the default, you're right. And allowing doctors to inject your children with untested poison that has dubious benefits and known dangerous side effects isn't something that should be taken for granted and automatically assumed to be the "normal" choice IMO.

To me, "vaccine-free" actually makes being "vaccine-full" sound like the norm!

It would be like "circumcision-free". Intact is the word used, not the phrase in quotes.

But since "intact" is already used, having an "intact" immune system doesn't work.

And I like being petulant about vaccines. It IS the norm around these parts, so saying "I'm not vaccinating" is absolutely perfect for me.
