Ahem…

If that’s not enough to make people realize that they’re fucking 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. 
Motherfucking 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. 

THIS.

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 fucking children.


On top of that, people who are on treatments like Chemo will most likely catch the disease. These people’s immune systems are so compromised that even the common cold can send them to the hospital, what do you think whooping cough will do?Also even if vaccines did cause autism (they don’t by the way) is it really the worst possible thing? I happen to enjoy my life and have been successful in many things and I have Asperger’s aka High-functioning Autism.

I am reblogging comments like these for the sheer fact that the perspectives of those with autism and on the autism spectrum are often left out of this conversation, even by neurotypical allies.Because, really… what ARE anti-vaxxers saying?
