I got vaccine denial. What kind of crazy are you?

    As promised, I’ve kept adding to my super awesome social media quiz meme. Here’s my most recent contribution, followed by a number of others that were sent to me by friends, who apparently got inspired and wanted to join the “What Kind of Crazy” campaign with me…

    This is the most fun I’ve had since we did our Pure Michigan campaign.

    [The first is mine. The next three are from Peter Smith. The following four, in order, are from Laura Goins, Stevo Doccerson, Jeffrey Schrader, Jennifer Scroggins and Kristin Schrader. And the last four are also mine, as I apparently cannot stop.]

        Two things…. First, I had to remake a few of the images here, as they either weren’t the right size, or became illegible when shrunk down to the accepted size. I’m sorry if, by doing so, I significantly altered the submitted pieces. And, second, I didn’t know until this evening that Jimmy “JJ” Walker had been romantically linked to Ann Coulter. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that. I’m sure I’ll toss and turn all night.

        See here’s the thing about Mr. Walker….Boyfriend Ken was one of the very, very privileged amongst us to see JJ *inc concert*! Live and in person, I tell you! Well the first thing that the mostly college aged kids crowd demanded of Mr. Walker was that he yell DYNOMITE! Apparently, he got so pissed off that he almost walked off the stage. This only encouraged the raggamuffins more and they continued to shout and shout. I don’t know what kind of detente was reached (Boyfriend Ken being quite high at the time) but the concert did go on.

        This brings up a bigger issue of whether we should expect our stars to say and do certain “catch phrases”. I mean, if I had made millions off the catch phrase “And it was a clown’s taint after all!”, I would be delighted to say this to the few souls who still remembered my heyday as a commenter on Mark’s websites. I think reactions like JJ Walker’s (and the late Arnold) are far over the top and they need to chill.

        And I will say this…next time I run into Peter Larson, my boy better be sayin, “Interesting”.

        MM RESPONDS ABOUT THE NOVAK ENTRY:

        “Hollywood is evil. Or maybe it’s just capitalism. Sports figures do it too, with performance enhancing drugs. No one wants to give up the limelight. No one wants to lose their edge.”

        “I should add that my intention wasn’t to attack Novak. Like I said, she’s just the most recent example. The list is long, though. And, in my opinion, it’s something that we should be talking about. America worships youth.”

        The “Obsessive Compulsive” one is in poor taste. It’s pretty offensive to use the term “crazy” to describe a real psychiatric disorder that many people deal with. The rest of the results make fun of individuals and groups that keep themselves willfully ignorant, or are crazy in the sense that they’re irrational and unreasonable. It’s tasteless to lump OCD in with the rest.

        Not saying that it’s never appropriate to tell jokes about mental illness, but this particular joke is problematic.

        Great to see a picture of Brother Jed in the mix. I was a Security Guard at the U in the late 70′s-early 80′s and loved to walk out of the Grad and hear him condemning the “trollops and whores” on campus who were willing to have sex all the time, with anyone. It was a fun roadshow to watch, and the students would just give him all kinds of shit…

        Fun watching Mark get eviscerated on Facebook by people claiming that Novak hasn’t had plastic surgery but a stroke.

        Am I the only person that thinks it’s funny that Mark is being called out on an OCD meme?

        Anti-vaxxers credited with bringing Measles back.

        Measles was considered eliminated at the turn of the millennium. Now it’s back, thanks to the loons to refuse to vaccinate their children.

        Of all the things to be nostalgic for, infectious diseases probably don’t make it onto many lists.

        However, if you happen to pine for the good old days when measles was an active public health threat, I have good news for you. The anti-vaccine crowd is bringing it back.

        There is currently an outbreak of measles in New York City. Considered eliminated in the United States in 2000, last year saw a record number of outbreaks around the country. It’s only three months into 2014, and not only is the nation’s largest city seeing cases in several boroughs, but other major metropolitan areas are warning of new cases as well.

        Court ruling: parents don’t have the right to send their unvaccinated kids to school

        In New York City, parents do not have the right to send their unvaccinated kids to school if another student has a vaccine-preventable illness.

        That’s according to a Brooklyn Federal District Court judge, who ruled last week that a parent’s constitutional right to freely exercise their religion does not always make their children exempt from vaccination requirements.

        New York City schools require all students to get a series of basic vaccinations in order to attend classes. But in New York State — along with several other states — laws say that parents can opt out of these requirements for religious reasons.

        When three families in New York City recently did so, their children were barred from attending school, leading them to file suit against the city. Citing a 1905 Supreme Court case — in which the court ruled that Massachusetts was permitted to fine a man $5 for refusing a smallpox vaccine — Judge William Kuntz ruled that the court had “strongly suggested that religious objectors are not constitutionally exempt from vaccinations.”

        Of course, the plaintiffs plan to appeal the ruling, and this is just one of several similar suits filed across the country in recent years. Given that 48 states allow religious exemptions for vaccine requirements, the ruling will certainly be tested at higher levels before it becomes a real policy.

        All this comes as increasing numbers of parents around the country are refusing vaccines, leading to outbreaks of a number of diseases that could have easily been prevented. Earlier this spring, during a measles outbreak in New York, the unvaccinated sibling of a home-schooled child who’d been infected was barred from attending public school. That sibling ultimately contracted the disease, and keeping him home prevented it from spreading further.
