Going by your reasoning, Rosa Parks not standing up on the bus was not a story. I mean it was just an adult woman chosing to not stand up. What's so special about that. I choose not to stand up hundreds of times a day.

Leaf, you're still staring it. It's highlighting a simple fact...children are disobeying their parents decisions regarding vaccinations.  And before you get all semantic on me, child also refers offspring regardless of age.

Yes, I'm staring at the leaf.  The topic is about the leaf.  You want to talk about the forest and I'm directing you back to the leaf.

An adult ignoring their parent's advise is only remarkable in how unremarkable it is.  You want it to be more, but in the end, it's just an adult making his own decision.  You wish to mix it up with the underage version of the story, but the two are separated by the assumption of complete legal authority over himself that happened on the day he turned 18.  I'm not sure why you insist on putting the two together and insisting so hard that there is any legitimacy for why this person should for the second time in a month, be all over my news feed for days on end.

A woman not standing up in the bus is even less remarkable. And yes, I know exactly what followed after that. But still, that incident itself wouldn't be noteworthy by your standards.

Hence why SpokenTruth tells you you're missing the big picture. He's one case in an entire movement to get vaccinated despite their anti-vaxxer's background. But you try to make it a non-issue and saying there's nothing remarkable about it. Getting vaccinated is indeed not remarkable, doing so while your parents and relatives have called it the devil's work (or something across those lines) and just being one out of many with a similar background however is noteworthy. But all you see is that single case and nothing else. It's as if you would concentrate on a single dead soldier and trying to argue that there's no war happening despite hundreds dying every day on the field.
