You will be the subject of my brothers comp 111 paper! 

He was fascinated to hear about the different beliefs and practices that go one within a crunchy realm of life , from views on circumcision to re-using shit paper.

Could you please take a moment if you want to maybe name some things you do - that you think make you "crunchy"

And is there a term for those who are not down with the Crunchy style?

I would definitely not consider myself "crunchy," especially by the standards described in your OP.  But I do cloth diaper, breastfeed to a year and beyond, don't plan to use any drugs in my next labor, try to make sure my kids eat healthy, wear my babies, don't vaccinate.

But I do circumcise, parent-let weaning, we don't eat all organic, we punish our kids, let them watch tv, don't do AP.

Well I was trying to describe it as "levels" of crunchism. That one doesn't have to do all to be considered crunchy - but its more of a naturalistic point of view on life.

How would you define crunchy?

I'm not really crunchy, just a bit crispy...lol. I breastfed my kids, wore my babies in a sling, cloth diapered (made my own), we homeschool, I cook from scratch including making my own bread, we recycle and compost, I make my own laundry soap, clean with vinegar, and I use cloth menstrual pads (make my own).
