    I got a good chuckle out of this but…

    Any suggestions for dealing with an anti-vaxxer? Because I really suck at changing their minds.

      It’s often not about changing the minds of an anti-vaxxer so much as attempting to reduce their impact on people who might think be persuaded if they don’t here the pro-vax side.

      As they say, “you can’t reason a person out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into”. And a lot of anti-vaxxers are apparently persuaded more by fear-mongering and conspiracy theory than reason.
