Hi Yeti, I've been following your blog for a long time and I've always really liked your views and morals and agreed with them- however, my parents were both "dumb hippie"s an neither I nor both my sisters were immunised and out of the three of us maybe one will get a cold every two years. We've got plenty of family and friends who weren't immunised either and all of them have much better immune systems than friends who were. So poo you. Don't be rude.
I respect every person’s decision to do what they want with their own bodies, but here’s how people who decide not to participate in immunizations kill people for real:
Science-based medicine wiped out smallpox using vaccines. Smallpox, let me remind you, used to kill 400,000 Europeans PER YEAR! That’s all American gun deaths PLUS all American car deaths TIMES FIVE. So we got rid of that motherfather. With science. No big deal.
Measles, not quite the killer that Smallpox was, but we were on our way to eliminating it. Also with science. Using vaccines. Now, measles is coming back. That’s like 400 - 500 kids a year dying and 1000 people per year becoming disabled for life because hippies don’t want to vaccinate their kids.
You and your friends are healthy? That’s wonderful. I cannot tell you how happy I am for you and your friends. However, that’s not how vaccines work. You and your friends could probably all get measles and be fine a week later. No big deal. You know who it is a big deal to, though? The baby you accidentally gave measles to when you didn’t know you were contagious yet. And the old lady on the bus who was unfortunate enough to be inhaling oxygen right at the time you coughed.
They’re dead now. They’re dead forever because of your hippie parents.
Healthy people need to be vaccinated against diseases we have vaccinations for because some people are not healthy and those diseases will kill them.
We don’t know how these phrases ever fell out of fashion, but we propose bringing them back.
It’s 5 AM and I’m well batty-fanged, but I’m laughing fit to disturb the neighbours (one hopes). What a delightful list - it’s like Bertie Wooster mainlined acid, cocaine and Viagra and went about struttin’ and naming things as if he were Adam.
“Stevie Nicks was the first woman I ever heard say she had chosen not to have children because she cared more about her career. The first that ever warned me men might not like it if there are things more important to me than they are. The first that ever said that that was fine: sometimes, you have to leave them behind. Wherever she goes, she surrounds herself with girls. “I can’t imagine you in a bathing suit,” someone says in an interview for Rolling Stone, when Stevie says she likes to play in the pool in her backyard. “Yeah, well, you never will,” Stevie says. “There is never - ever - a man in the backyard. If there is, he is banished to the front of the house.” Men don’t get to look at Stevie Nicks unless Stevie Nicks wants men to look at Stevie Nicks. In her songs, even when she’s talking about how she has to change, she proclaims her power, her ability, her worth. She is a queen, she is a witch, she is a dragon, she is in control. She isn’t polite. She’s competitive. She’s bossy. She claimed all the things the men around her claimed — she spent as much money as they spent, had as much sex as they had, was as reckless as they were, stood at the front of the same stage — and never questioned that that was her right. The world tells us women are there for men, but despite all the boyfriends and the jokes about how she’s so easy and the sex-symbol status, she isn’t there for men at all. She does it without ever giving in to the men that dismiss her. She’s emotional. She’s dramatic. She raises her voice as much as she can. She thinks she’s pretty, she thinks she’s a star, and when her fans crowd up to the edge of the stage, crazy, she welcomes them, with open arms. She revels in it. She’s too much of a girl for you? She revels in it.”—Stevie Nicks is a queen, a witch, a dragon
The song where they’re slowly falling in love in the beginning of the musical is a mashup of We Belong Together and SkaterBoi, with the ‘Bleachers’ character singing the Taylor lines and the ‘Cheercaptain’ singing the Avril lines. Bleachers is a scrappy lil’ boi with a snapback and a devastating smirk and Cheercaptain is Santana basically without the coming out angst cause this story isn’t about coming out, it’s just about teen love. And Bleachers is like all the ‘alterna’ kids in high school, so different and not preppy and obvious and Cheercaptain is O V E R that nonsense, just get past it and kiss me!
And Bleachers gets all Too Cool for School and Cheercaptain’s friends get really pissed at her (cue acapella of ‘Mean’ by Bleachers) and she starts dating another girl in act 2 (Cheercaptain gets a rousing sleepover pick me up of ‘22’ followed by ‘Girlfriend’ where she and the other cheerleaders bop around Bleachers on her date with Other Girl all peppy and obnoxious)
Then they find their way back to LURVE and hold hands under the stars (‘Perfect Day’ sung here in alternating verses) and kiss and kiss and CONFETTI AND LOVE FOR ALL
reblog if you ARE gay, if you SUPPORT gays, or if you like to OPEN people’s WINDOWS in the middle of the NIGHT and put DOZENS of GEESE in their BEDROOMS. Let’s show the world that there’s a 1 in 3 chance that we’re kind of a dangerous person to be around.
