Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.

You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

image

Ahem.

Anti-vaxxers are a danger to the world and we need to stop them tbh

GODDAMMIT. I AM SICK OF THESE ANTI-VAXXER SHIT GOBLINS.

VACCINATE THOSE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO LEGITIMATELY CANNOT.

I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU THINK YOU’RE A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR SPARKLY CLOUD OF YOUR OWN SELF RIGHTEOUS FARTS THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES LIKE POLIO.

GET. A. GODDAMN. CLUE. THEN GET VACCINATED. VACCINATE YOUR SPAWN.

YOUR BATSHIT BELIEFS ARE KILLING PEOPLE.

In my opinion, refusing to vaccinate a child who can be vaccinated is tantamount to medical neglect. I am 100% done with being nice to anti-vaxxers. We need to bring back exiling people. Andrew Wakefield and Jenny McCarthy are the first to go.

Welcome to forced injections, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood liberal.

You’re goddamn right. Nothing says individual freedom like infecting newborns with measles because you’ve got your head jammed so far up your Ayn Rand-hypnotized, objectivist, unvaccinated butthole that vaccinations are suddenly LibertyStompers™ and therefore, causing an epidemic is no big — even though the parents of those too young to be vaccinated, or people who are immunocompromised don’t even get a choice about exposing themselves to harm from your special snowflake irresponsibility.

So yeah, if it’s Typhoid Mary² or “forced injections,” roll up your sleeve, wankstain.

you’re willing to spend billions of dollars and kill hundred of people to protect america from terrorism but a shot to the arm is too much?

Just before Earth Day 2014 begins…here’s one of our posts from Earth Day 2013, just because :) We’ve got a whole lot of content for Earth Day 2014 queued up tomorrow, so hope to see you then!

2013- Earth Day puts a face on Climate Change.

Today, the 22nd of April, is a day where over one billion people across 192 countries collectively take action to protect the environment and our home, Earth. This year, men, women and children from Dublin to Dubai, from New York to New Delhi, are bettering their communities and helping to depict The Face of Climate Change- arguably the biggest threat to humankind today.

The Earth Day network is collecting images of people, animals and places that are affected by our changing climate. They are also collecting stories from people and organisations that are doing their bit to better our environment. An interactive display of all the images is being displayed at thousands of events across the globe.

Stories range from a lone mountaineer in New Zealand reporting on glacial retreat to an organisation in Thailand that installed solar panels in a refugee camp. The diversity of participants encompasses the notion that this is a global problem affecting people from all walks of life, all over our planet.

Earth Day began as a result of concerns US senator Gaylord Nelson developed in the wake of an oil spill in 1969 in Santa Barbara, California. A year later, in 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets demanding a more sustainable environment and subsequently launching the modern environmentalism movement.

Today, Earth Day is the largest secular event in the world. It encourages the participation of people of all ages and backgrounds to come together in unity to clean up, better education, sign petitions, protest and rally to save endangered species.

While Earth Day is an amazing event showing human cooperation, we must not forget that realistically, every day is Earth Day; this is our one home, which we all share and should cherish and respect. After all, “The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth.”
