Why is it any of our business? *a sort of vent...with logic*

Ladies, why is it our business if someone chooses to have another child, or get pregnant accidentally while on PA? Why is it our business what another mom chooses for her son (circ'd or uncirc'd) or whether or not a parent chooses to celebrate a holiday or... well... anything? I understand being curious, but that should be the end of it. Be curious, learn from one another, but don't judge. We all look at our life through different eyes, have been shaped through different experiences and environments, cultures, and traditions. Remember, that's why our world is beautiful. I'm a Pagan mommy who believes that her son shouldn't be circumcised. If you want to know why, I'm happy to tell you, but please don't try to convince me I'm a terrible parent for NOT going against what I believe to be the most logical route. I plan to educate my son in all manners of faith. If you want to know how, or why, I'll be happy to tell you. Please do not tell me I'm dooming my child to hell for my ways. I choose to encourage him to play with whatever toy makes him happy (currently, his favorite is a stuffed purple unicorn from a Happy Meal). If you'd like to know what benefits are in it, I'll be happy to tell you. Please do not tell me I'm leading my son into sin and homosexuality by confusing gender roles. I can tear most arguments to pieces with logic, reasoning, hard facts and statistics. Mainly, because I do research before I make a decision that carries weight. However, I am ALWAYS open to differences of opinion, different experiences, and different facts and statistics. I don't understand why when a person chooses a different style of parenting or lifestyle or faith it is taken as a personal affront to those who feel their way is the only way of doing things. Can't we all get along and learn from each other, one mother to another?

Its not any one's business. Some people just dont have a life, so they fulfill their excitement by belittling people and criticizing them. Its sad.

Thank you. I agree wholeheartedly! Can't we all respect each other as another mom, just trying to do what she thinks is best for her family?

It's not anyone's business, period.
