  • Yes, because the choices of non-vaccinating moms can affect my children. It's like being annoyed that some people don't pay taxes. It's a collective effort for a collective benefit.

  • Absolutely not. It's when the opposite moms try to tell me that *I'm* wrong. I'm an exclusive formula feeder. I can't stand it when lactivists jump my shit for it! Of course I know that breast is best. Duh huh, do you think I'm stupid? I would never tell a woman she's wrong for breastfeeding. I would like the same respect.

  • Not really, it doesn't affect my kids. Though I am annoyed at the thought that some diseases which have been basically eradicated from most of the world will make a comeback because fewer people are being vaccinated against them.

  • And you didn't read my screenname properly =] But hey! We all make mistakes.

    To answer your question, no. It doesn't bother me, like I said in my other answer.

    -- You're absolutely right. That's why it COULD affect your kids.

  • The only ones that bother me are the parents who say they would rather their child live with a vaccine injury. I have one, and wouldn't wish that on anyone. It hurts to hear them say they would prefer their child to have poor quality of life.
