Get a anti-vaxxer mug for your bunkmate Georges.
A person dead set on listening to conspiracy theories about "Big Pharma" and ignoring all evidence to the contrary. Hallmarks of your typical anti-vaxxer include a staggeringly overinflated ego, pervasive selfishness, and insistence that they know more than real doctors/researchers because they read mommy blogs. An anti-vaxxer is also likely to view children as their property with no medical rights of their own (MY child, MY choice).
Joe: Why do things like measles and pertussis still kill people today?

Martha: Because anti-vaxxers only care about themselves and their "rights" to control their children. Science has eradicated these diseases - it's too bad it's fashionable for anti-vaxxers to flout science and make their children suffer with preventable diseases.

Noun: A sub-cult of anti-science, Google researchers that, when gathered in groups, have the innate ability to reduce their collective IQ to a level proportional to the inverse of the collective sum.

Person 1: Why are those people rolling around in marmot poo?
Person 2: Oh those are just anti-vaxxers.
