I don't care either way, just curious :) Compared to my hippie friends I'm totally mainstream and compared to my mainstream friends I'm a flaming hippie lol. Where do YOU think I stand?
I like to use herbs for minor things... burns, mild anxiety, stuffy noses, etc. But I'm not shy about using OTC or prescription meds when necessary.
I planned a home birth for my son. I wanted one for my daughter, but gave in to my husband's fear and had her in the hospital (induced, but didn't use pain medication).
I eat and feed my family lots of whole foods. We buy only 100% whole wheat breads (except when we want French bread when I make soup or something lol), we eat lots of whole fruits and veggies... but I'm not an organic fanatic. I buy it when it's comparable to the conventional versions of food, but not when it's super expensive, and we eat junk for probably 10% of our diet because it's so delicious lol.
I attachment parent, for the most part.
I'm a registered Libertarian.
I care about the environment, but my main motivation for using cloth diapers and pads is money lol.
I'm totally against war 95% of the time. I just don't see the point in fighting and dying over the shit people decide to fight and die over.
Delay vax, no spanking, anti-circumcision, pro breastfeeding (but don't have anything bad to say to mothers who chose to bottle feed)... and I catch a lot of flack from some for supporting a mother's choice to have an epidural or planned C-section for convenience *as long as she is informed of the risks and benefits before the procedure*...
I think I really consider myself *more* mainstream than hippie, because I feel that I just don't live up to the hippie standard lol. I'm not full on committed to being an environmentalist and feeding my kids perfect diets, etc.
What do the main-streamers think? What do the hippies think?
Now post yours! Keep it fun, please.

I vax I recycle My kids would choose an apple over a Snickers any day. I DO let my kids eat sugar..it is the fun of being a kid. (the have had a Popsicle for breakfast and lived!) I garden We "go out and play" I think hate breeds hate, and I refuse to rejoice in the death of anyone, even an enemy. I believe education is paramount. (the more you know the better off you are) Idle hands do the Devils work...I keep my kids busy and involved and I don't have kids in trouble I think if English is your mother tongue, you should speak it correctly rather than sounding ignorant. I breast fed, but refuse to bash a bottle feeding moms. I teach my kids it never costs a thing to show kindness to others.
