Anti-Vaccine Quackery – as Dangerous and Stupid as You Might Imagine

277I 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!

  1. Un-fucking-believable…except that it obviously happened. Other than that, words fail me.

  2. I’d advise any adult who got vaccinated as a child for common childhood diseases (mumps, diphtheria, typhoid, measles, scarlet fever, whooping cough, and polio) to have a VERY direct conversation with your doctor. And ask about a TB test, too.

    When I was in grade school, in the Dark Ages, all of us got those vaccinations. Salk’s vaccine had just been released. It was 1952. We got those shots at school from the school nurse – ALL OF US. You REALLY do not want to be told that your kids have polio. YOU DO NOT WANT THAT.

    I also had a smallpox vaccination before kindergarten. I have TWO smallpox vax scars – one from toddlerhood, one from the Navy, plus a full second set of vaxes for those ‘childhood’ diseases. I was concerned about the second smallpox scar, so I sent an inquiry about so-called lifetime immunity to this deadly disease to the CDC. Their answer was essentially that it is NOT lifetime. The first inoculation last 3 to 5 years, then fades. The 2nd inoculation lasts somewhat longer, but the length was NOT specific.

    So now, I have to go over to the VA and inquire about getting every one of those shots, including polio, all over again, because whooping cough is going around here and mumps has been found in public schools.

    That stupid woman’s children? No, they are not immune to whooping cough for life. They could have it worse next time, AND they can get the side effects of it.

    These very stupid people scare the living shit out of me.

    1. My vaccinations all date from the 1980s: Military Worldwide Deployable, so we got vaxxed for EVERYTHING. . . but I’m probably wearing that out, as I recall, vaccines are generally good for ~30 years. . .

    2. Two years ago, a dear friend of mine came down with what we assumed was a cold. I’ve long been her massage therapist, and I continued to work on her weekly as she got worse and worse. Six weeks or so in she was diagnosed with pertussis. My first phone call was to my doctor. “Do I need a booster?” “It’s okay, it was in your tetanus booster this summer.” My friend still had bouts of coughing a year later.

      Re polio: As a massage therapist, about 30 years ago I worked on a gentleman of 80-few. His posture was erect, and every muscle toned — except for his right leg, which looked like a broomstick covered with skin. He’d had polio.

      People are so damned stupid. That, or abysmally ignorant of what infectious disease meant up until — well, until right around my childhood.

  3. I keep suggesting to the Homeopathy idiots, to “immunize” themselves from bullets, by starting to shoot themselves with BBs, and working up. . .

  4. Holy mackerel! Feeding her narcissism at the expense of her children’s well being. Because that’s what this woman is – a narcissist. And then she says, “Sleep, it’s for the select few parents who probably drug their kids or lock them in their rooms.” Oh, and hubris, too! Makes one want to punch her right in the kisser.

  5. Pertussis has been epidemic in eastern Europe since the late 80’s maybe earlier. The vaccine can prevent or reduce you contracting it but its slowly moved from there to here.

    Its a horrible illness. Its not just mucous, its mucous that forms a web you cannot cough or breathe through so you suffocate while gasping for breath. I spoke with one mother who told of reaching in the back of her childrens throats and pulling long mucous strands out with her fingers.

  6. We need to find out who her “family doctor” i.e. naturapathic healer because they are every bit as liable as her in this neglect and abuse. Any ideas?

  7. A commenter on another blog story about this case claimed that she had contacted CPS and given them a link to Dexter’s original post, along with her business address and telephone number. If true, I hope the “self-important, stubborn, supercilious twat”, as you so eloquently out it, will be charged with and prosecuted for child abuse/endangerment. Her husband, too…he could clearly see what was going on but didn’t have the balls to take action.

    1. So true! Exactly right. He’s a big pussy. How do you stand by and do nothing while your wife tortures your kids? I do hope the flaming cunt gets arrested.

    2. She apparently modified her essay, claiming that the naturopath she saw was her family doctor. She also deleted her FB page. She’s really filthy hippie scum.
