I have written about anti-vaccine nutjobs in the past. The amount of stupid present in Jim Carrey, the screeching bimbo Jenny McCarthy, and crazed parents who purposely try to infect their kids with totally preventable diseases (and really should be tossed into a tub of chicken pox and hot tar) is unreal.
This particular self-absorbed, arrogant nutjob really takes the cake. This Heather Dexter creature – a “naturopath” and sadist – needs not only to be kicked in the twat, but relieved of her parental duties! And if you know me, you understand how bad the situation has to be in order for me to actually advocate such a thing!
In her article, this self-important, stubborn, supercilious twat, describes her ordeal… HER ORDEAL – NOT HER KIDS’, HERS – during several months of watching her children suffer through whooping cough! The science blog Respectful Insolence takes Dexter to task for the suffering she inflicted upon her three children – for her own sake, for her own beliefs, for her own ego – because giving them a vaccine or a course of antibiotics to ease their agony would have meant admitting that her career field is a dangerous sham!
My 3 year old son, Lucien, began coughing. Yes…it happened to be the same exact cough that Madilyn had started with nearly three weeks ago. At this point, Madilyn’s cough was beginning to scare me. She would wake in the middle of the night, multiple times a night, coughing so hard that she would puke over the side of her loft bed. Her normally rosy cheeks would drain pale until she was able to gasp for air. It was at this point that I realized this was no ORDINARY cold. I was in need of a second opinion… some non-parental help.
During the night, Lucien would cough until he barfed up mucus, proceeded by crying and screaming fits. He was genuinely terrified each and every time he woke from sleep without breath. At this point in time my husband, and I were now waking every 30-90 minutes through the night to clean up after or console one of two coughing, puking, screaming children.
By mid-January, Madilyn was doing great. Lucien was turning the corner, for the better. He was now only coughing moderately throughout the day and waking only a couple times a night. But Emilia’s breathing had now reached the scary point. She was now coughing until she puked, making her normally rosy cheeks drain to pale. This was followed by crying, which would cause the process to repeat itself until often times she would just fall asleep due to pure exhaustion.
It took a good 120-150 days from the start of the coughing for each of them to eliminate the bronchial damage and lung weakness caused by the bacterial infection, Pertussis. We spent hundreds of dollars on natural health products and consultations with various Naturopathic Professionals. It was a living HELL. Every day. It had an intense effect on my marriage and relationship with my husband. It caused me to question everything I knew about Natural Health.
Notice, how Dexter tries to sound all heroic. “It was living HELL,” she claims. For whom, you insolent cunt? Oh, you couldn’t sleep? Oh, you spent hundreds of dollars on “remedies” that had no hope of curing your children’s torment? Oh, you paid other idiots, whose career fields are just as pointless as yours, to provide moral backing for your cruelty to your own kids?
Even this idiot’s husband and father both advised her to take her kids to the hospital!
You know what her reaction was? She felt betrayed. She. Felt. Betrayed. She didn’t even care enough about her children to put her own ego aside for a mere moment. She allowed them to suffer for more than 150 days. She watched them choke on their own mucus, vomit, and struggle for breath, and she did nothing. Nothing.
Please, for the love of all that’s good, read the entire story in the link I posted above. It was written by a surgeon named David Gorski, and he takes this horrible, narcissistic shrew to task for the suffering she has inflicted on innocent kids!
