It certainly comes as no surprise that I don’t like esotericism and esoteric people are usually not found among my best friends.
So I was being talked
to at in one of the lesbian bars by one of the esoteric lesbians who seemingly had a problem with doctors or evidence based medicine. In particular she was cursing vaccinations as the root of nearly all evil which includes the in crease of obesity in the developed nations (which naturally couldn’t have anything to do with people consuming far too many calories in the form of fast food, especially in the USA & UK), diabetes mellitus (which couldn’t be linked to obesity at all, on the other hand what she blamed for obesity was as clear as it was idiotic) and some other nasty ailments.
In short I got the feeling that she was desperately missing a polio outbreak in Europe and also mourning the eradication of smallpox. At this time my patience – which normally is already in short supply – completely left me.
So I suggested that there should be an opportunity for all those who don’t “believe” in vaccines and instead swear on alternative healthcare to travel to the CDC in Atlanta and take a good sniff from the vile containing Variola Major (the virus that causes smallpox). This way the problem of not “believing” in vaccines is either solved or proponents of no-vaccination will be marked for life so that really everyone stands a chance of avoiding these people as early as possible.
Though I do wonder whether it’s really a disproportionate amount of lesbians advocating the no-vaccine scheme.
Needless to say the conversation in the lesbian bar was over and I was accused of being a hatemonger and being offensive. – I readily admit to having been offensive and rude. But a hatemonger? Either way I’d at least be a vaccinated hatemonger.
