If that’s not enough to make people realize that they’re idiots, how about the fact that if enough people are left unvaccinated and catch the disease they aren’t vaccinated against, the chances of the disease mutating into a new and potentially more dangerous strain are increased! And guess what??? No vaccines exist for those new super-strains! Every body would be at risk because “vaccines cause autism and my child is a special snowflake!”. Which reminds me, why would anyone rather have a dead kid than an autistic kid? People with autism can live highly functional and fulfilling lives. Dead people can’t.
Measles infections have skyrocketed in the US and Canada because of morons who don’t vaccinate their kids. And guess what? A lot of new doctors have never seen a measles case in their life. This means that if your kid catches measles, then they may not be able to be diagnosed in time to save their life. If your sick kid gives measles to a baby that hasn’t been vaccinated, that baby is probably not gonna live. If someone with a compromised immune system catches measles off of your super important child, they’re gonna suffer and die.
All because you were too uneducated and arrogant to understand how your actions have consequences.
TLDR; Nothing pisses me off more than parents who think they’re more important than public health.
One of my mother’s close friends lost an infant daughter to whooping cough. She was too young to be vaccinated and one of the older kids at her preschool was unvaccinated. The older kid brought whooping cough into the preschool and the little girl died. Do you really want the life of an infant on your hands? Vaccinate your children.
I’ve shared this a lot, but I’ll share it again:
My mother, for all her super-conservative, easily-taken-in-by-scares ways, vaccinated my littler brothers during a resurgent FLUX in the vacc scares, in the early 90’s. WHILE we lived in the crazy culty religious community. Most of her peers weren’t vaccinating their babies. Most of them thought she was crazy for trusting “the system”.
As a little 7 year old still hanging around her ankles, I remember over-hearing her quip at another mother in the nursery, who was all “BUT THIS IS WHAT THEY’RE DOING, THEY’RE DOING THIS TO OUR BABIES TO MAKE THEM AUTISTIC!”
And mom was just all, “First, I don’t believe that. But second, even if there was the chance, I fought for this boy. I fought to have more babies in my 40s, I went through surgery to have him! I would much rather have him grow up alive and well and learning a little differently? Than DEAD before he had the chance.”
Sure enough, more than a couple toddlers in that community ended up coming down with perfectly preventable diseases.
Three of them died.
Just, stfu with your fake science.
At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare
I let alphabets cling to me
as I climb the thread of language
between myself and the world.
I muster crowds in my mouth:
suspended between language and the world,
between the world and the alphabets.
I let my head
listen to the myth,
to all sides praising each other.
And I shout at the winds from the top of a mountain.
Why does my tongue tell me to climb this far?
What is the distance between my voice and my longing?
What is there?
But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

#anyone who looks at allison argent and is incapable of understanding the motivation behind her choices and actions is a fucking idiot #it’s hammered home time and time again exactly what sort of upbringing she had #and exactly what values were instilled in her #the upheaval in her life is on par with scott’s #both of them were thrust into the world of werewolves with little preparation and little to no choice #her loss is equal to characters such as stiles and derek #she only has two family members left #the others died horrific deaths #one happened in front of her eyes #the other happened in her bedroom #gerard is her equivalent to peter #her family lied to her for most of a season #just like the rest of them lied to lydia #she was manipulated into immoral actions #just like jackson was turned into a tool of murder as the kanima #that’s not to mention the immense pressure she puts on herself #to the point where her worst fear is the revelation of her weakness #allison argent has been through hell and passed out on the other side #she’s one of the strongest #best developed characters on the show #so what exactly is it that you have trouble understanding??
