I don’t recognize the relevance of the title given for this meme but I wholeheartedly disagree with it
@Fuggles, and you are correct.
@Fuggles, who caressssssssss
@Fuggles, to be honest, I have this exact picture that talks about how liking a dick is gay, so therefore liking a girl with a dick is still gay and Patrick says something about how it's not gay since it's a trap and I thought I uploaded that one 😅
@Fuggles, don't you see, Manray is trying to lure Patrick into a trap and the chimicals in the water is making our frogs gay
I have in laws that are convinced that vaccines cause autism and other defects. It’s almost as bad as veganism. Every thine they say, “Well....” Myself along with everyone else is like “FVCK!”
@ImNotRacistBut, Yeah, my father in law actually called my wife out of the blue the other day and started rambling about this measles outbreak and “keep your kids away from any other sick kids”, and my wife said “yeah, pretty sure they’ve been vaccinated for that one already”, and he went off on a tangent about Alex Jones and vaccines cause autism and all that shît.
@ImNotRacistBut, some scientist said they did, went on tv to talk about it, was found of fraud and his lisence revoked but he is still making money hand over fist from the companies who pay him to say they still do.
I mean, cancer is technically a genetic condition
You do realize that your genes can and do change after birth, right? Like, your DNA does change based on things like viral infections, environment, etc. At least, that's how I understand it. But I'm no biologist or nothin'. And I'm not saying vaccines can cause autism, just that this seems to me to be a poor rebuttal.
@Doctor Yak, I'm learning about this in my developmental psychology class right now. Yes, your genes do change after birth, or rather certain genes can be activated/deactivated based on any number of things, like environment, disease, diet, etc. I'm not really sure how autism works, but it seems that it is something you're born with rather than developing later in life, as it's possible to diagnose autism when children are still babies. I'm no expert by any means, though.
@BigChungus, autism cannot possibly be diagnosed until 5 years old. At least, not in the UK.
@BigChungus, Honestly, I think it’s a bit of both. They still aren’t sure exactly what causes autism, but have linked its development to several different genes, as well as certain complications with pregnancy, and so many other factors. There’s really not a lot of strong correlation to any one thing, and it’s only getting more extensive the more we learn about the disorder. Personally, I do think there’s a largely developmental factor to it, because I think it has to do with proclivity vs response vs external factors. You could have a child who has the developmental proclivity for autism, with parents who don’t handle certain aspects of child rearing very well, and the response from the kid ends up exacerbating those features of the disorder. Kinda like with how you can have a really high IQ and still be dumb, or a relatively low IQ, but still be smart. There’s a lot more to it than just the brass tacks.
Except children receive multiple vaccinations before year 1 including the DTAP, rotavirus, hep b, and chicken pox among others
@rnf73, kids still been born right? So the point stands, even if the 1yo piece may be over-generalized.
Autism is poorly understood and likely has a number of causes genetic and environmental. However, watch your fallacy fallacy: just because the person who made this is an aggressive moron does not mean their point is wrong in this case.
Having three children with autism, i believe its the brain not making a certain chemical. gut bacterial whether too much or to little may not break down food the right way to make the chemical. just my theory though
As someone has an older brother who is autistic this is the constant reminder the autism society try’s to tell everyone. The only thing they found so far that may have a correlation is the changes in bacterial gut
We don’t know that autism is always genetic and children receive multiple vaccines in the first two months of their life. This meme is 100% factually inaccurate.
They cause it in a child, that then has children, and their children have it, and so do their children.
