The lunatics who insist on balance

I really have to laugh when I hear proponents of vaccination complain that anti-vaxxers do not provide a “balanced” point of view on vaccine science and public policy. The “balance” is inherent in the mere existence of anti-vax views. There is no balance on vaccination within the pharmaceutical industry. There is no balance on vaccination within the government. There is no balance on vaccination within the media. There is no balance on vaccination within medical trade associations. And yet, proponents are aghast, incredulous at the lack of equilibrium and equanimity among anti-vaxxers. Are ya kidding me here? That’s like a bully whining that the victim he’s just pummeled to a pulp (and continues to incessantly pummel) isn’t playing fair.
