Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

SO REBLOG THIS!! LIKE THIS!!! SPREAD IT LIKE WILDFIRE!!!!!

When men’s rights activists are asked which gender they would choose if they could choose their gender, this is the top response:



I would totally choose to be a female without a second thought.
I’m a 47 year old male spending my life working until I am able to accumulate enough money so I don’t have to work anymore. If I were a woman, I could get married, quit my job and let my husband support me… and no one would bat an eye.
And if I grew tired of him, I could divorce him, get half the marital assets and have him cut me a check for the rest of his life while I had absolutely no further obligations to him.
Basically, as a woman, I could have everythingright nowthat, as a man, I have to work my entire life to achieve.





Anyone else get the feeling that men’s rights activists get their entire worldview from 90’s sitcoms?
