    I know that's a bit OT, but it's been said a few times and I've thought huh? formula mums are the worst treated on this forum probably behind the scourged circ mums
    I really thought it had changed. And I KNOW for a fact it that if/when it happens it IS well modded. I've seen it with my own eyes, just as I've seen the woeful lack of it in here (both vax sections)

    I understand why you might have started the thread OP. I am always interested where people get their information from to make an informed decision about not vaxxing.

    No I don't. Two totally legit choices, which can be quite divisive, have been quite heated in the past, and can ALL be treated with respect, regardless of your personal choice/action on each thing.

    Well maybe a close 2nd/3rd I acknowledge it isn't an easy choice as far as backlash. I do feel for anti vaxxers truly I do. But I keep out of the anti formula threads now 99% of the time (unless it's the above where I'm involved with a pro formula thread and it's hijacked) bc that is the one area that makes me wild. I have no distance, no ability to have a 'they are entitled to their opinion however strong'. This is me So I try to keep out of them now bc I know I cannot be objective. it's my Achilles Heel.

    My long winded point - if as a non vaxxer it riles you right up, don't click on the thread! and that doesn't mean I condone crappy behaviour. But sometimes recognising it's *your* achilles heel can help not have the blood boil lol

    Um if she were really interested, she MIGHT have actually posted it in the non-vax area, so the non-vaxxers could post.... (without being flamed (in a perfect world)) I think it was pure $hit $tirring.

    Some anti-vaxers (I'm assuming - hoping! - it's a teeny minority and nobody I've seen on BH) are just plain crazy conspiracy theorists who think that Big Pharma is out to get them and the government is horribly corrupt and trying to make the population stupid by giving them vaccinations.

    But I stress, teeny minority.

    And, you know, autism.

    Funny you say this. I was just thinking the thread would be better suited in the debate it section. I'm not sure if the OP is going to get accurate answers if it's posted in a section non-Vaxers aren't really welcome in...! (Perhaps it was just an oversight on ops part it happens)

    Well, as a pro vaxxer, when you ask questions in a non vax thread you get whinged at.

    Thank you for reading my mind and speaking on my behalf. The truth is I was learning something UNTIL you started posting in this thread.

    Really, you need a cup of tea and a good lay down hey.

    I have plenty of ideas about raising kids etc etc BUT because I am comfortable with my decisions I don't feel the need to go ramming them down other peoples throats. Maybe you should spend some time being completely comfortable with your beliefs then you really wouldn't feel the need to defend yourself so appallingly.
