A couple of days ago, I posted a commentary about COVID and vaccines and I took great pains to shield the source of my conversation.
But when I woke up this morning and checked in on twitter, I found that the “haters” had discovered my commentary and decided to call me a bunch of names. No, it had nothing to do with “science” or “evidence.” It had everything to do with them being bullies.
I just had an interesting “debate” on twitter. Someone I follow (and who doesn’t follow me) said something about the vaxx-denier at work being on again about the person in question getting vaccinated.
I’ve heard the word “denier” used more or less in the same context as “racist” or “child molester,” as if someone does not have the right to hold a different opinion on the topic, and doesn’t have the right to choose NOT to receive the COVID vaccine.
I didn’t respond to this person directly, but I did retweet his message as a quote and added one of my own. He responded and, as I said, because I like him (although I’m sure he thinks I’m the Son of Satan for being such a difficult human being) and generally think he’s a good person, I am paraphrasing him in the following image as he responds to me.
