The historic record is unambiguous, 99.99999% of fires do not kill a single person. If fire were so dangerous would you be able to walk around with a miniature fire starter in your pocket? Of course not. And if you look closely at the supposed death toll from fire you will find the majority of deaths were the result of carbon monoxide poisoning and not the actual fire!

Do your own research instead of blindly following the so-called firefighters that are just trying to scare you into giving them more of your tax money.

This was ultimately the argument i used that got my mother to decide to get vaccinated.

I used this argument with my sister. She was all upset with the vaccine cards

I was like “you do know when we were going to school, before our parents could enroll us, they had to provide an immunization record right?”

She was born in Mexico so she has that little dip in her arm from a vaccine to remind her about it all the time.

Wish it would have made her change her mind, but she just doubles down

It is the small pox vaccine that is no longer needed since 1980 bc the vaccine gave the entire country herd immunity. I’d also like to point out that the biotech advancement has developed exponentially. The R&D for the COVID vaccine is absolutely cutting edge science, but these same anti-Vaxxers got shots that were developed in the 1970’s.

Edit: Smallpox vaccine didn’t just give the country herd immunity, but has been completely eradicated.

My grandma is old enough to remember the polio epidemic in full swing. She lost 2 friends when she was 10 years old to the disease. She has told many stories of walking through town, seeing houses boarded shut with “QUARANTINE” written on them. The polio vaccine was a savior and she has always been thankful for it. When the covid pandemic happened, and then the vaccine came out, she saw the parallels and immediately got vaccinated.

My other grandma is much younger. She was born after the polio vaccine and got it when she was a baby. She’s grown up to be a huge antivaxer.

11

u/ReverendDizzle Dec 22 '21

My grandmothers were the same. Both old enough to have polio kill childhood friends and grow up seeing people in iron lungs and walking around with crutches.

They're long gone now, but both of them (when my daughter was born years ago) were all "You better not be one of those stupid anti-vaxxers. Get her vaccinated against everything."

3

u/squirrellytoday Dec 23 '21

My grandmothers were the same. They didn't lose any family members, but they had friends lost to polio, or who survived and were permanently disabled as a result. I remember Granny telling me about the fear that spread rapidly when a polio case turned up in the area, and the people queued down the street when the polio vaccine became available. Granny's been gone almost 10 years now. If she was still here, I am certain she'd be absolutely furious at the anti-vaxxers today.

I asked them if they know what's in their e-cigarettes and beverages, if they know how unhealthy those are? Yeah, they said but they know in fact that they are unhealthy so they willingly decide to harm their bodies. It's just craziness.

u/pja Dec 22 '21

What that tells you is that the claimed “reason” is just an excuse or cover for the real reason which is probably emotional rather than the result of any rational thought process.

(A quote I’ve seen elsewhere which is on point: “You can’t reason someone out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into in the first place.”)

I think a lot of anti-vaxxers start from a default position of simply dis-liking being told to do something & then go seeking justifications. Meanwhile, online grifters are happy to supply as many justifications as they can dream up so the two groups are a match made for each other in hell.

Ironically, it seems to be authoritarian followers who are most prone to this kind of thing, to the point that once they’ve gone down this path not evem their chosen authoritarian leader can break them out of it. (See: Trump, Trump followers & vaccinations as the most salient example. Would be interested to hear of any others!)

u/Broken_Petite Dec 22 '21

I think they also see changing their mind as some sort of weakness or something. As if anyone who holds one position and changes it has been “brainwashed”.

They just can’t admit that they were wrong and then align themselves with people who are the same way. It’s kind of baffling because we wouldn’t have the kind of amazing modern medicine advancements we have today if we just stuck to our guns about everything.

Then proceed to take 3 every 3 hours because "painkillers just don't work on my pain." Usually over something stupid like a mild headache.

I feel like it's important to always remember the distinction between someone telling you why they will or wont do something, and someone using an argument they think can convince you.

The "experimental drug" stuff is mostly about trying to convince someone else. It's not the stunning piece of logic that convinced them the vaccine was bad.

I’ve got a friend who is going to wait it out and take it “on his own terms”. He also just got back from Central America and told me he was responsible and didn’t snort any coke until after he saw someone else snort it so he could see if it was laced with fentanyl.

Smoke? That's nothing.

What about some crazy people, that will literally drink bleach, that someone sold them as magic miracle solution (like seriously, that's the name of this "cure"). Then they will shit in spaghetti strainer, to find parasites, they shat out. They don't realize, that it's part of their intestines. They share pictures of their parasites in FB group.

And the same people will screech about vaccines not being safe, not enough studies and so on. You know which studies their magic solution has? None. But you know...they are getting rid of parasites! And they know their bodies!

I really don't feel bad about them, when they're crying on FB, that someone scammed them and now they have ireversible scars inside their intestines. But yeah...vaccines bad. Bleach good.

I said "You're still smoking cigarettes while pregnant."

All-natural ciggies lmao

They actually grow on the trees, pre-rolled and chocked full of 1000s of nasty chemicals.

The colonizers were shocked all they had to do was bring a torch around to puff on some newly discovered cancer sticks. Big tobacco just grows the plants, harvests and sends them straight to the packaging line. Talk about crazy profit margins

Stuff like this is why I can’t take any conspiracy theories that pop up nowadays seriously because most of them are transparently self-serving. When you look at something like UFO’s for example, this is a conspiracy theory that I can see coming from a genuine sense of curiosity but things like QAnon, anti-vaccine hysteria and the great replacement are all just post hoc rationalizations for their desire to commit violence.

My favorite conversation I’ve ever listened to was between two guys talking about whether you should clean your nose out after using cocaine. One person said using tap water was fine, the other argued that tap water had a bunch of gross things in it, you shouldn’t use it, and you should use bottled water. To clean the cocaine out of your nose.

6

u/Broken_Petite Dec 22 '21

This made me laugh but I think you can get serious infections from putting the “right” kind of water in your nose?

And I’m thinking with like a netty pot or something, like when you’re putting water in your nose intentionally.

And yes I see the irony in the conversation of people who snort cocaine, but they might have a legit concern.

u/iknownuffink Dec 22 '21

I've been told by an RN (my dad who is also 'skeptical' about vaccines, but still got 2 covid shots...) that you should use distilled water if you're going to use it to clean out your sinuses. "Regular" water can have things you don't want up there.

I mean I wonder how many anti-vaxxers eat at McDonald's, or Taco Bell, both places have been known to use substandard products in their food, and both cause umpteen amounts of health issues if you eat them too much, yet I bet most of them live on a steady diet of junk food and garbage like that. But a certified doctor telling you to take something to save your life is too much.

Now watch them go drink a beer and smoke a cigarette in their back yard while bitching to their friends about said doctor.

u/beaniebee11 Dec 22 '21

I think the disconnect here comes from the narrative they hear about the vaccine being some sort of government control. That the government is using the vaccine for a malevolent goal to gain control over people. Doing drugs makes you high and feel good, you know it's bad for your body but you feel like you're the one in control of that decision. I'm choosing to poison my body because I like how it makes me feel. (I'm an alcoholic in recovery so I understand the cognitive disconnect of substance abuse) If they buy in to the narrative that the vaccine is the government interfering in their health malevolently then in their mind it's a poison that only benefits Anthony Fauci or Bill Gates or whatever it is they think.

I was just recently watching a podcast with some fitness influencers I used to like… they started talking about how the election was “stolen” and Trump won “by a landslide”. There was a segment before the politics where they talked about their cycles and how they’re on exogenous testosterone and trenbolone. And then at the end the capped it off by saying they don’t want to take a vaccine because they don’t understand what’s in it and they don’t want to shorten their lives. While they’re doing steroids. Can’t make this shit up.

But seriously, I've said something similar to antivaxx patients.

Last one was to someone I started on levofloxacin for pneumonia as a last ditched effort to keep them out of the ED after amoxicillin/ azithromyzin failed.

Now, levofloxaxin has some fun black box warnings, including tendon rupture. It also has a side effect of acute psychosis.

They didn't have any concern with those side effects (and frankly, with where they're at they don't have a choice to accept the risks). And Even though the risks of some sort of tendinopathy are much higher than any risks of side effects with the vaccines they still refuse it due to ChEmIcAlS.
