As a diabetic, I'm very tired of seeing diabetics compared to anti-vaxxers.

My disease is not communicable.

My disease does not represent a threat to anyone but me.

There is no vaccine for diabetes. You can damn sure bet I would have taken one.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, and has nothing to do with anyone's lifestyle.

Type 2 diabetes can occur in people with healthy lifestyles.

When you compare me to an anti-vaxxer and say that if they're not treated, I shouldn't be treated, you are insulting and degrading me, and everyone on this board who has diabetes. We don't deserve this.

Please don't hold alcoholics up as an example, either. There are people who are predisposed to alcoholism who have no idea they are until they take that first drink, and then it's too late. If you've ever had a drink, and you're not an alcoholic, the only thing separating you from them is luck. They don't deserve to be compared to anti-vaxxers, either.

Do you think that anti-vaxxers deserve medical treatment, or any other benefit of society? Just say that you are just fine with a complete lack of consequences for their carelessness, irresponsibility, and complete unconcern for others. Don't drag any other groups LIKE MINE into it.
