Unvaccinated Australians Form Singles Groups to ‘Keep the Bloodline Pure’
By Samantha Maiden
Unjabbed Aussies have formed their own singles groups — boasting they are getting engaged, married and even having kids to “keep the bloodline pure”.
Anti-vaxxers have formed their own singles groups boasting they are getting engaged, married and even having children to “keep the bloodline pure”
The gatherings, where like-minded Australians who refuse to get the Covid vaccine meet and mingle include supporters who call themselves “pure bloods” because they are unvaccinated.
The events are being organised across the world and have now arrived in Australia where they are also being promoted by activists including Monica Smit.
“I attended an UNJABBED singles event on Saturday…what a lovely bunch of people,” she posted on Instagram this week.
“There are countless relationships because of this group and even two marriages and children. If you’re single, you should join them…or search ‘toxin free singles’.”
The group rules for the Toxin Free Singles group she promoted include that you must be single when you join, the group will message you to ensure you are.
“Open relationships are okay but you must stipulate this when you join,” the group rules state.
“Discussion on who will sleep with/kiss CV j@bbed is no longer a topic we wish to keep having, it causes arguments and lowers the vibe.
“Individual choice regardless of what studies have been done. To join the group you are cv j@b free but we can‘t draw the line with who people are intimate with. Be an Adult and have these discussions before you sleep with someone.
“Please remember this is a Singles Group.Memes are to be posted in a specific thread found in announcements. No more Flat Earth discussion.”
Flat earthers are supporters of a conspiracy theory that the world is flat.
Commenters on Ms Smit’s post over the ‘UnJabbed’ event suggest that to join the group you must remain unvaccinated.
“Who would ever have thought, only a few years ago, that this would be a thing?! Unbelievable!!” one man commenting on the post states.
“But great work, let‘s keep the bloodline pure!”.
Similar groups are emerging in Australia under the PureMatch website which promotes what is described as unvaccinated dating.
“Pure to us means unadulterated; free from unnecessary cellular modification or experimental medical procedures,” the website states.
“Pure has escorted the 2020 elephant out of the room leaving you free to connect with like-minded, freethinking, self-responsible adults without the noise and nonsense.”
Infectious diseases Professor Peter Collignon said there was no medical basis for the claim that the Covid vaccine altered your DNA.
“I don‘t think there’s any evidence that any of these vaccines change your DNA, particularly not in your ovaries or your sperm,’’ he told news.com.au.
“I mean, (Covid) vaccines don‘t insert into DNA. So I think the whole concept is wrong.
“So people who do this, I think you‘re really narrowing your opportunity for lifelong friendship with somebody. I think the basis of their theory is really no evidence at all.
“And, but I suspect we‘ll have to agree to disagree because if you are that entrenched with those views, we’re probably not going to be able to change them.”
The founder and managing director of Reignite Democracy Australia, Ms Smit was a high profile critic of the Victorian Government‘s handling of the Covid pandemic.
Two years ago she live-streamed her own arrest on incitement charges and later spent 22 days in custody before she was released on bail. The incitement charge was later dropped and she had flagged plans to sue police.
She announced her engagement just hours after being released from prison but now appears to be single again.
Two charges remain in relation to Covid fines and Ms Smit is promoting on her Instagram page a three-day hearing from May 15 where she is urging supporters to attend the Melbourne Magistrate Court.
The so-called “pure blood” movement has already resulted in vaccine sceptics blocking transfusions for life-saving surgeries and demands for unvaccinated blood and sperm donors.
Some in the movement believe the blood from people inoculated against the coronavirus “contaminates” the body.
In a recent high-profile case a New Zealand couple sought to block life-saving heart surgery of their infant on the grounds that any blood transfusion could have come from a vaccinated donor.
The dispute prompted a New Zealand court to take temporary custody of the baby to allow the procedure.
“Cases like this spread like wildfire on both fringe and mainstream news sites and then social media, providing attention for anti-vaccine conspiracy theories,” Katrine Wallace, an epidemiologist and assistant professor at the University of Illinois Chicago, told AFP.
“There is absolutely no science behind these conspiracies. If you give blood from a vaccinated donor to an unvaccinated person, the person receiving the transfusion does not become vaccinated.”
