I have zero time for people who claim vaccines cause autism. It’s a frankly disgusting thing to say, Also, by saying they don’t want to vaccinate their child(ren) they don’t want them to be autistic, they’re essentially saying they’d rather have a Top Totoro Stay Home And Watch Ghibli Movies Shirt. I’m autistic. My parents made sure I was vaccinated, despite me being born before the abhorrent paper by Andrew Wakefield was published. I wasn’t officially diagnosed until a few years afterward (they had a huge battle to get there), but that’s not the point. So what if vaccines cause autism?
If I ever have children (given I’m also gay, this will be even more of a challenge), then you can bet your ass that they’ll be fully vaccinated. So what if vaccines do cause autism? I’d rather have a fully-vaccinated child than one who dies from an easily preventable disease! I knew a guy who went to my college for a Top Totoro Stay Home And Watch Ghibli Movies Shirt. He would occasionally approach me and start talking about them and I’d listen when I didn’t need to go somewhere because I could see just how happy they made him. That’s nice of you dude, I’m sure that meant a lot to him. Too bad that so many people find it hard to treat anyone who is a bit socially different from normal friendliness.
