Is it just me???

Recently we have found others are discriminating against us due to how we live. . .ORGANIC. . .we have had lots of people treat us differently for this. . . I did not ever think this to be a problem but apparently there are people who think poorly about organics. . eating them and living green. . .
Has anyone else had this problem?

  • Yes. They don't say much about the food, but my family almost had me committed when I would not let them put sunscreen on my baby!

  • I don't live organically in many places in my life, sometimes I feel it's a little bit out there for me, personally, but I would never judge you because you are living a certain way. I hope you can ignore the people that harass you because of it, cause they are ignorant and single minded! Sorry your having so much trouble! xoxo

  • I do not live to the degree you do, but I notice when I'm looking for antibiotic free meat and preservative free products that yes people think I'm crazy.

  • You shouldn't care what they think of you.
    You should be secure enough to not worry about it I think.
    Just my .02, but if folks have issues with you, tell them to mind their own business!

  • I understand even if you are secure it can be frustrating and confusing. . . I mean why be judgmental over it, I mean it is not like you are making them go green or anything. . . their choices their life as well as your choices your life. . . But it can be frustrating and hurtful at times I am sure. . . People can be mean.

  • It's your life style, and obviously it works for you. So why do you care so much about what someone elses thinks?

  • I think people feel like you guys look down on people who do not do organic..Like you are some how a better Mom or person in general and regular living is beneath you..I try to buy organic fruits and veggies for my kids but sometimes it gets expensive..

  • I don't look down on those who don't do organic. . . it is their choice. . . mine is for my DD who can't eat other foods. . .she has to be organic due to her health. . .and all of my family thinks we are nuts-o because we don't let non-organics into our home. . .Food, cleaners or otherwise. . .ALL HAS to be organic FOR US, but that is our choice.

  • I just went Vegan and I get those "why the hell would you do that" reactions from people. I usually just say something like "well why the hell would you eat something as disgusting as a cow." Shuts them up every time.
