I think my batshit crazy SIL might be an antivaxxer, but we don't associate with her really anymore.

I don't know any essential oil people, or flat earthers. I don't think anyway.

What about you guys? If so, what is your experience with them?

I work with one, she's always trying to sell essential oils. She gave me a sample bottle to let me see how much better I feel if I use it on my joints every day. I ended up just opening up the little bottle hiding it on a shelf so that my office always smells kind of like root beer and covers up the smell of my dank after-lunch farts.

Which category?

My mom is a trumpkin and she is religious too, so I can somewhat relate.

I just have to ignore all the things she says.
Anti-vaxx, homeopathic, essential oil, trumpkin...
Normally i would just ignore it, but I'm expecting a child, and now it's a real issue. She's convinced my sister to not vaccinated her kid

Yeah, that's rough.
My dad acts as the grounding force for her, though.

He's also conservative, but when she starts going off the deep end, it is not uncommon for him to say, "Jan, shut up."

They watch the kids and they've respected my wishes to not teach them political stuff. She lightly talks about God, but eh I'm okay with that.

Anti-vaxxers: No.
Essential Oils: No.
Flat Earthers: A few, but they're also the young Earth creationists.

I do work with a couple of people who are heavily into just about every conspiracy theory and discuss them at length. The Apollo missions being done on a soundstage in Hollywood, the Illuminati being behind Kennedy's assassination, the Rothchild's running the world in secret.

I somehow ended up in an anti-antivax/oils/MLM facebook group which posts nonsense all the time.

If I did.. they wouldn't tell me :rofl:

they know I would call them on their bullshit... especially the flat earthers :rofl:

The fact that is a thing is just horrifyingly funny to me... Like I am horrified that this is a thing but at the same time i cant stop laughing my ass off at them :rofl:

I take that back.. my wife was raised an antivaxxer, and she didnt want to vaccinate our kid if and when we have one.. but it wasnt hard to change her mind, she just was never taught what vaccinations do.. and how important they are.
