Kat Von D: “crescerò mio figlio facendogli seguire una dieta vegana e senza vaccini”

Kat Von D è un’artista tatuatrice ed è a capo di una linea make up. Su facebook e instagram ha un sacco di seguaci il che vuol dire che ogni cosa che pubblica viene letta da un sacco di utenti.

I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable – unsolicited none the less. I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead. If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you – try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations. My point being: I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices – actual research and educating myself will – which i am diligently doing. This is my body. This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey. Feel free to follow me on here if you like what I’m about – whether it’s tattooing, lipstick, Animal Rights, sobriety, feminism, ridiculous gothiness, black flower gardening, cats, or my adorable husband. But if you don’t dig a certain something about what I post, i kindly ask that you press the unfollow button and move the fuck on. So before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself. More importantly, for those who have amazing positive energy to send my way, I will gladly and graciously receive it with love! X

Pochi giorni fa la tatuatrice ha pubblicato una foto del suo pancione dove spiega di voler far crescere suo figlio senza vaccini e con una dieta vegana. Negli ultimi anni in America ci sono stati dei picchi altissimi di casi di morbillo a causa della credenza che i vaccini portano l’autismo. Fortunatamente uno studio ha smentito questa credenza e i tassi di vaccini hanno iniziato a risalire.

*swipe across- When our son was rushed to the emergency room last summer in a convoy of two ambulances and four paramedics (they sent for the main team because Dan was so dehydrated that the initial paramedic couldn’t find a vein), he had a raging fever and was hallucinating. He couldn’t see us when we were leaning over him. He felt his body shutting down. The team worked on him for over 15 minutes in the ambulance before they were cleared to ‘move off’. When we arrived at the hospital they immediately quarantined us and put him in critical care. Four IV drips. For 48 hours. He spent a week quarantined in the critical care unit – in the dark, because the crushing migraine he had for three weeks would not leave, even with morphine. His fever took a week to come down within normal range, even with the best of modern medicine available. At the time he was a 23 year old man, fitter than most, who played football for approx 4 hours a day. Mumps felled him. He lost over two stone in weight. Without intensive medical intervention he would not be here. Now imagine he was a baby. Or someone with a compromised immune system. When I see people like @thekatvond using their platform to promote raising her unborn child ‘without vaccinations’, I want her and the drones of ill-advised people underneath, including @kandeejohnson to see and know that this is the reality of ‘benign diseases’. You have the absolute unbelievable arrogance of a ‘choice’, because the rest of us responsible people/parents DID vaccinate. These diseases were almost gone, now they are back because some people think they know better than all the scientists, physicians and specialists in modern science. As I said in my post last year, vaccinate your kids. Or keep them the hell away from mine. (I took endless pictures of Dan in hospital to keep Jim up to speed as he had stayed home with our younger, traumatised kids. Dan gave his full permission for me use the picture and tell the story in detail. He’s our hero. And no, I am obviously not talking about you if you are unable to have the vaccines. You are who the rest of us should be trying to protect.) #savethenhs

Un sacco di seguaci di KVD hanno sostenuto la scelta della tatuatrice, ma non Caroline Hirons che ha zittito l’artista con un post: “Quando nostro figlio è stato portato di corsa al pronto soccorso la scorsa estate in un convoglio di due ambulanze e quattro paramedici (hanno inviato la squadra principale perché Dan era così disidratato che il paramedico iniziale non riusciva a trovare una vena), aveva una febbre altissima ed era allucinato. Non poteva vederci quando eravamo chini su di lui. Il team ha lavorato su di lui per oltre 15 minuti nell’ambulanza prima di avere l’autorizzazione a “trasferirsi”. Quando arrivammo in ospedale noi finimmo in quarantena e lui in terapia intensiva. E’ rimasto nel reparto di terapia intensiva per una settimana al buio poiché il mal di testa era talmente forte che nemmeno con la morfina sarebbe andato via. La febbre è scesa nei limiti normali dopo una settimana anche con la miglior medicina sul mercato. Mio figlio all’epoca era un ragazzo di 23 anni, sportivo e in ottima salute, ma la parotite l’ha distrutto e senza un intervento medico ora non sarebbe qui. Immaginate se fosse stato un bambino o qualcuno con un basso sistema immunitario.Quando vedo persone come @thekatvond che usano la loro piattaforma online per promuovere l’educazione no vax, voglio che lei e i personaggi sconsiderati sottostanti, inclusa @kandeejohnson, vedano e sappiano che questa è la realtà delle “malattie benigne”. L’arroganza della tua scelta lascia assolutamente senza parole noi genitori responsabili che vacciniamo i nostri figli.Queste malattie erano quasi sparite, ora sono tornate perché alcune persone pensano di saperne di più di tutti gli scienziati, i medici e gli specialisti della scienza moderna.”
