Why are people on reddit so mean?

I was on Reddit and asked a general question about a flu shot. My questions read "I have family members who get symptoms of the flu after getting the shot, does anyone else?" Also, in the description I said I was 7 weeks pregnant just in case anyone pregnant had anything to say... They then proceeded to call me an idiot for asking and that I should talk to my doctor. Obviously, I had talked to my doctor... but I wanted opinions from other people as well to ease my mind. Doctors aren't right 100% of the time.. They told me they felt sorry for my child and sorry for the quality of life my child will have. This is a bit extreme, don't you think? I immediately shut down my account. I will never get back on Reddit. Ever.

The cause is a negative byproduct of our great technology. It's easy to be an a**hole jerk when you can do it without being face to face. To answer your question, I personally don't get flu shots for the very reason you asked about. I know too many people who never had flu problems until they started getting the shots :)

You are going to find rude and judgmental people where ever you go. Don't let them get you down. It is their problem to deal with. Just make the best and most informed decisions you can.

People are a-holes on the internet because they can say anything they want with no repercussion. Don't take it to hard, I've gotten death threats for saying that we should torture pedophiles and child molesters. There are tons of people out there using the internet, they all have different views, they seldom actually read everything that you type out, and they love to jump down someones throat and get away with it. Just remember, the best way to kill a troll is to starve it. Don't react to these people at all, don't defend your point, or question, they won't hear it.
