The Internet is shutting down anti-vaxxers one by one
If there’s one thing that makes me happy on the internet, it’s watching anti-vaxxers being smacked down by people who actually know what they’re talking about. In a world where people are free to spill whatever bullsh*t they want onto the internet, it’s bloody important that people with the gift of knowledge stand up for what’s right and disprove dangerous lies and misinformation as soon as they see them. Some of these smackdowns – collected by Bored Panda – take that responsibility and really f**ken drive it home.
I’m not gonna spend my time on here, explaining the ins and outs of why you should get vaccinated. Most of these posts do a way better job of that than I can, but let’s be honest, you should get vaccinated – or vaccinate your kids. For me, that’s the one thing that really stands out: most of these bloody anti-vaxxers aren’t making the decision on behalf of themselves, they’re making it for some little f**ker who could end up getting really bloody sick.
Anyway, these posts run the gamut. Some are eloquently phrased slices of knowledge that are unfortunately doomed to fall on deaf ears. Some are savage as f**k. All are well placed and well deserved.
As I said above, if you’re going to spread information that could lead to other people becoming seriously ill, or having to deal with unnecessary grief, you need to make sure you have the facts. And that’s really the problem here. The profligation of bullsh*t on the internet actually has the potential to do harm. Some f**kers will believe anything they read. Those f**kers might take the misguided rant of an anti-vaxxer and read it as gospel.
That’s just not good enough. As I said above, I love that so many people brandish the torch and use it to shine light on the real facts. They see this misguided bullsh*t and they f**ken smite it.

Final thought: If you aren’t sure about vaccines, do yourself a favour. Talk to a f**ken professional. Don’t just get online and read the first few things that come up in Google. Google results can be manipulated through clever phrasing. On top of that, some people on the internet are just bloody trolls. You’re far better off talking to someone with a real life degree in medicine.
