Whether or not to vaccinate your children has continued to be a hot button argument across discussion platforms. Famous make-up and tattoo artist Kat Von D got in hot water recently for posting on Instagram that her unborn baby would not be vaccinated.

While substantial research shows vaccines are safe and vital in disease prevention, refusal of childhood vaccines at the doctor is on the rise. It could be argued that having these famous allies has emboldened anti-vaxxer groups, whatever the reason never shy away from sharing their opinions online. When science isn't on your side it can make these arguments tricky, but as you’ll see in these examples that doesn't stop them from trying. Some people tried to embellish their medical background, while others could benefit from a class in logic.

Bored Panda shares some of the best anti-vaxxer fails below, to show you better have your proof together before coming to the internet. (Facebook cover image: MangoStar Studio l Cover image: Andriano Cz)

Do people don't understand we have dangerous diseases that can't be obliterated by our immune system alone because a) those diseases are new b) therefore our immune system isn't familiar with them and can't fight on its own?!

Wow. I wish when people are trying to sound more intelligent and learned that all the doctors, scientists and biologists, that they would learn to spell and at least take a stab at punctuation. They'd still sound ignorant, but at least it wouldn't be so painful to read their arguments.

My doctor has a Facebook page, it has been fun over the years watching her eviscerate anti-vaxxers and anti-flu shot proponents with facts and logic. Some idiot came at her with the "for profit" argument about the flu shots and she gave a very detailed, itemized list of her expenses regarding flu shots and explained how she not only doesn't make a profit, some years takes a huge loss and made him look like a total dolt. She's awesome!

Oh my. They probably didn't catch it and die from it because all the sane people who are vaccinated massively reduced everyone's odds of catching it. How can these people not see that, if we all gave up vaccines, these diseases would re-establish over time?!

Strictly speaking, Washington had his troops variolated - innoculated with a less deadly form of the smallpox virus, variola major. Soon after Washington's innoculation process Edward Jenner worked out that inoculation with the much more harmless vaccinia virus (commonly known at the time as copox) gave cross-protection with smallpox, and instituted the practice of vaccination. Washington's innoculation, whilst completely successful, was more potentially more dangerous, but it certainly helped to establish the principle of protection by innoculation. And finally - antivaccination is a totally borked notion...

I'm confused by this one. What does gender have to do with it... or the gun epidemic for that matter? Way off message.

There's more to this conversation as you see the antivaxxer is replying to someone. It seems their reply was in response to someone saying mental illness is what makes these people do mass shootings. Antivaxxer says the kids are 'crazy' because of vaccines. Provax states vaccines are used globally yet only the US has a massive mass shooting problem. The gender part was a bit of a stretch since girls aren't required to get anything, but the gist was that girls and boys are vaccinated at the same rate, yet boys are the ones doing most of the shootings. So if it was because of vaccines, clearly mass shootings would happen by the hands of both genders equally.

Not enough information here. The gun "epidemic" is from people on mind altering pharmaceutical prescriptions. Every one of them so far - since the Texas Tower shooter in the 60s. While 92% of mass shootings used to take place in "gun free zones" that percentage is now 99% - because they can shoot without anyone to interfere. Don't forget - Sandy Hook had no deaths. That school district's Justice Dept statistics for crime showed rapes, robberies, murders etc for that area - and about 2 murders. NOT the claimed 20 or so. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora (guy passed up about 4 theaters to find a no-gun theater) Red Lake, San Bernardino, 9/11 and more - ALL had "govt drills" in that exact same place, at that exact time, using that same scenario. So many of your mass shootings are bullshit from day one. 9/11 was an inside job, and it took Cheney moving a normal Air Force exercise to a different time and location in order to insure that there was ONE SINGLE AIR FORCE JET in the entire Northeas

Maybe kids are violent because we hit them when they misbehave and teach them that those in power can control by force.

I think that it's the lack of discipline that is ruining children. Sure there are ways to punish children without hitting them, but I remember the ways that made me straighten up is when I was put over my dads knee to get spanked, or mouth washed out with soap when I swore. Or put i the corner when I was bad. I turned out to be a productive member of society and have respect for parents who still spank or wash out their child's mouth with soap.
