Ehh I feel like if you care enough to get your kid secretly vaccinated, you probably wouldn't have a kid with an antivaxxer, or if you found out too late, would probably divorce her.
Being an antivaxxer is an inherent and constant danger to your child's life. And if you're a good parent, you shouldn't risk your kids with a spouse like that.
@Mhael, it's okay, you can get the antipsychotics needed to treat this disease on the black market.
@Mhael, it can be more complicated than that. If your marriage provides an otherwise-stable home for your kids, bolsters your finances, and other benefits than marriage can have, it's sometimes a better option to just grin and bear it. Kids growing up in a broken home can be almost as harmful as not being vaccinated, and since women overwhelmingly win custody cases even if they don't deserve it, it's not always a good option to divorce.
@Rtas Vadum, the problem is, if they're unreasonable enough to believe in anti-vax propaganda, they're likely going to be unreasonable/a danger to the kids on other issues as well. It's just a huge risk to be with someone that stupid or willingly oblivious.
@Rtas Vadum, that’s one step away from mom sneaking urine into the kids Apple juice for its “health benefits” because she saw an obscure Facebook group preaching the practice. That kind of ignorance will manifest in other dangerous ways given time. I would not trust my children with a woman who would willfully endanger my kids lives, despite best intentions. GTFO, I’d say.
@Mhael, sometimes spouses change their views and you don't really notice until it slaps you in the face.
@Genosis, oh you mean like the health nuts out there eating meat for its "health benefits" because someone (corrupt scientists) said it was good for you. That's the kind of ignorance putting kids life at risk. Knowingly giving then food that has been proven to cause cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. I don't want to give away your kids future too much
@Mhael, Why are you assuming they're still together in the first place?
@Mhael, but, if you secretly vaccinated them, then their views no longer pose a risk. Divorcing someone and putting that stress on your kids just because they don't agree with one thing is a little bit narrow minded, to put it the most politely. Couples can coexist just fine with wildly differing views on a whole host of topics and ideals. You just have to accept people for what they are, and you may learn a bit about yourself in the process (the use of you and yourself is not an attack on you personally.. I just don't want to use 'one' and 'oneself' on this subject..)
@TheMightyImp, you're right except when it comes to things that are this imperative to the lives of your kids.
My point was if someone is either that stupid or willingly ignorant, they may endanger the kids in other ways. Plus they may have other impact on the kids not just in terms of their well being, but in terms of their beliefs/reasoning/logic.
All around, anyone believing in anti-vax movements is a danger to their kids both in terms of health and ideology/mental capacity. And while you're right people can and should coexist even if they believe in different things, there are things that are so outright ridiculous, that people who believe in them are almost impossible to coexist with. Like flat earthers, anti-vaxxers, and people who believe crazy conspiracy theories like actual reptilian shape shifters or whatever.
@Mhael, well, like I say, if it was just the vaxx thing, it's already dealt with. But you are right. They may smoke, or drink, or smoke weed, or curse, or be unfaithful, or be violent, or gamble the house away, or generally be intolerant. There are plenty of ways to hurt your kids and others. Anti vaxx is a tiny part of that (especially in the context I was commenting on)
@TheMightyImp, I hasten to add I'm not an anti vaxxer. I just enjoy both sides of the debate and hearing the views of others. It's true that you learn less by speaking than you do hearing others. This is just the text version of that.
@Mhael, ummm no, it means you can choose which kids to keep and which ones to let go.
Anti vaxers are cünts
Dont keep it a secret. Divorce her ass and take the kids.
@ThePandaPool , this
@ThePandaPool , the court system would destroy him
@Jakobian, only if they were already separated and she had legal custody. Otherwise he would be fine. Trust me. I have experience. If she had custody over him and he got the kid so much as a glue shot, they would tear him apart.
I feel like this is kinda negative because it reinforces the anti Vax thinking they are fine, when they really not fine...
If you think her being an antivaxxer is the only problem then better think twice
Had an ex who wasn’t vaccinated. Very healthy person actually. However she was a major b!tch so I’m gonna act like those thing correlate. Screw you Kristine.
“Religion is stupid because one needs to believe by faith.”
“Vaccines are good for me because muh government tells me so.”
Liberal is as Liberal does.
