Someone in the states just told me they might have whooping cough.
I mean. We’re still in the 21st century right? Right?! But no! Outbreaks of whooping cough in New York, because *some* parents are convinced that getting their precious little offspring vaccinated will give them autism and have gained enough critical mass to screw with herd immunity. I don’t… even… why are people this stupid?! Why do parents think that they’ve got the right to actually endanger a whole lot of other children because whooping cough is potentially pretty damn lethal on the basis of their shaky and discredited ‘science’?
