Anti-vaxxers have been in the news a lot lately, and they continue to be as ignorant as ever. There’s not really much to say about them that hasn’t been said already—their misguided paranoia about vaccines causing autism puts their kids and others at risk of contracting dangerous diseases that could easily be avoided.
Since everything that can possibly be said about them already has, let’s just go ahead and dunk on them.
People say “well what did people do before vaccines/antibiotics/pasteurisation?” as if that’s an argument for going natural.
They died, Carol. A lot of people died.

Why is it that when the CDC says to throw out your romaine lettuce everyone takes it as gospel yet when the same agency tells you vaccines save lives they’re part of the Illuminati

Dear antivax parents,
-You do not know The Truth.
-You have not discovered things Doctors Don’t Tell You.
-You have not done research.
-You are not better than everyone else.
-You are not holistic.
-You are not special.
-You are not “woke”.
What you are is wrong.

Vaccine refusal is like smoking, since your "personal health choice" puts others at risk.
Actually, it's more like making your children smoke.
In a room full of other people's children.

Anti-vaxxers: “the government is hiding a cure for cancer!”
Also anti-vaxxers: “no, I don’t want a prophylaxis for liver, esophageal, anal, and cervical cancer, those have toxins.”

I've just been informed that some people find the term "anti-vaxxer" to be offensive. From now on I will use the more technically accurate term of "child-murdering fuckwad."

1. Vaccines do not cause autism
2. Autism is not something to fear
3. Autistic people deserve acceptance
4. Everything we know about autism suggests it starts in the womb
5. Vaccines can't time travel to the womb#vaccineswork
