Chelsy is officially deep into the woo. Sad.

I guess that's not surprising given her social circle. I hope they are vaccinating Axton though, and getting any concerns checked out by an actual doctor.

From my observations: the more you are into woo, the less likely you are to vax. Plus she seemed so upset that she needed to be transferred to the hospital for his birth.

Mine too, although I still see a lot of people who are very into essential oils, all natural remedies etc, who were upset when their birth didn't go to plan but who still vaccinate - then again the people I know tend to have studied at least some biology and to be a bit more aware of what the limitations of natural remedies are. (Then again I know one person who went from studying for a PhD in a biomedical field to being a full on anti-vax, woo-enthusiastic promotor of the most out there conspiracy theories going.  Every time there's a measles outbreak near where she lives I get stressed.)  I kind of hope someone points out to Chelsy that not vaccinating means that Axton assumes all the risk of the diseases - I doubt that Chelsy is unvaccinated.

Oh Chelsy May be unvaccinated. Conservative Mennonites and Amish in the US have a low rate of vaccinating.

I’ve been out of the loop for a while but seeing Chelsy write “the vibrator has been a very fun discovery” has brought me gleefully back to FJ. I’ve missed snarking on fundie blogs...even if they are meant to be about teething babies

When I was little, we were at my aunt's house and she had one of those things that is like a mat that goes on a chair or couch and makes it a massage chair? Is this making sense the way I'm describing it? I hope so! Anyway, my mom always had back and neck pain and so I suggested she go get her vibrator to make her feel better!

Everyone laughed at me.

I had no idea why.

That was a nice tribute Judgy Chelsy wrote about her granddad.  I wonder if the Maxgrands especially the girls will feel the same way about their Grandpa Steve.

Yes. Yes, they will. They will have been told that’s how they feel so, yeah, all the feelings.

Under Chelsy's teething blog, a commentor asked if they believed in doctors and modern medicine.  Chelsy said yes and that they have a wonderful pediatrician.  So there is that, at least.

I mean, I know an actual medical doctor that is into this kind of shit and also very pro vaccinations.

Very important update: the french doors and the sink window in Chelsy's kitchen now have trim. This brought to you by Chelsy's post on teething, complete with Amazon links.

She also posted a tribute to her grandfather, which is being discussed over in the Bontrager thread. It sounds like she's going to the funeral; I assume with Axton and John, but that's not clear.

Finally! Shit was driving me crazy and I don't even live there.

Just the other day, our 11 year old neighbor and his mom (who's also a friend) stopped by; my husband and I were standing in the living room talking with them when the kid picked up a small box from the couch and asked - based on the photo on the box - if it was a new attachment for a game system.

Nope, it was a vibrating cock ring. 🤣  

(Thankfully, our neighbor was chill about it... we were a bit horrified but I think managed to play it off okay.)

Technically, the kid was correct.

Steve is not into woo and the Maxwells are completely American middle class when it comes to medical care. I have zero doubt that baby is vaccinated whether Chelsy likes it or not. Steve was at one point an engineer and has something of a science-y background.

Marlin Bontrager is a farmer  with sizable numbers of animals to care for and market.  Surely he has to keep his herds vaccinated just to stay in business.  Got to believe that Chelsy gets why vaccines are necessary if only from this perspective.

She called one of her recommendations “vibrator corn cob teether” and I clutched my pearls before I clicked on the link. Don’t worry, it’s not what it sounds like.

Amber teething necklace? Check.

Homeopathic Tablets? Check.

Homeopathic Chiropractor? Check. 

Essential oils? Check. 

Chelsy is officially deep into the woo. Sad.

I don't really think so. I remember a while back the Bontragers posted that Chelsy's mom Becky was really into homeopathic medicine. So, it is possible she brought some of it over with her before she entered Maxhell.

Oh no I don’t think this is new at all. I didn’t make myself clear but I think her Mennonite background probably exposed her to the woo and now it’s all coming out since she had a baby.

Thanks for clarifying. I just hope that Chelsy and John have the sense to bring their son to the doctors and not depend on herbal remedies and essential oils.

She said they have a doctor. Thank goodness. But I will say, there are some quack doctors out there like Patrick Johnston. I really hope they found a decent doctor. Not some fundie quack who spreads lies and misinformation.

Little known fact: the Hitachi Magic Wand is also terrific for releasing tension in your shoulders and neck.

Years ago there was a internet quiz "Dog Toy or Sex Toy?" that required you to determine to which category various photos belonged. Looking at the vibrating corn cob which brought up other teething toys I think it would be possible to create a "Teething Ring or Sex Toy" quiz.

I hadn't seen that one, but I remember one that someone posted on FJ, "Mascara Tube or Sex Toy?"

Jill Rodrigues must have a few of those particular mascara tubes around.  When she bats her eyes, her lashes must be so gummed up that they create a breeze.
