I think a woman has the right to choose an abortion, birth control, or to be an unwed mother. I'm not going to judge someone when I don't know what their life is like. Not everyone is going to do what I would do in the same situation.
I do not think less of someone who chooses to get tattoos. I don't have any myself, but many of my friends, and my husband, have several.
As for faith, as long as someone isn't trying to push it down my throat, I'm cool with whatever they believe.
As for parenting choices, I think you do what you think is best for your child. Each one is different. As long as you are not trying to live your dreams through your child by pushing them into things (like pageants), I'm cool with that. I breast fed my first two children and was really upset that I couldn't breastfeed my third. I thought he was at a disadvantage. I've learned I was wrong. Even before then though, if someone chose to bottle feed, I didn't think badly of them.
If you call yourself 'pro-choice' how far does that choice extend?
Do you think a woman has a right to an abortion and birth control but condemn or judge a woman who chooses to have a child of of wedlock? I don't judge single moms. I admire them. I don't think marriage is as important as some make it out to be. I do think both parents need to be responsible for supporting and raising their children but I don't think the parents need to be married to do that.
Do you think less of someone who chooses to get tattoos? Not at all, I do question some folks choice in tattoos, I worked with a man once who had a magic 8 ball tattood on the back of his hand, thought it was stupid and probably really hurt lol
What about if they choose to be devout in their faith while you've chosen to be an atheist or a different religion? I think everyone's path is different. I do stand up to folks that seem to think everyone and everything in this country needs to be christian. I have no problme with folks following their own religion, but I do have a problem with them telling me I have to follow their morals
Parenting choices - breast vs bottle; attachment vs 'traditional' (is that the right opposite?); putting kids in pageants etc? I don't judge a parent unless I think they are doing something harmful - bottle feeding vs breast is a very personal choice - not putting a hat on your infant in Northern Virginia yesterday = bad parenting (saw a woman at the metro with no hat or socks on her child - oMG
Yes a conversation last night sparked this and made me very curious about how far 'pro-choice' extended for those who labeled themselves. Is it 'pro-choice with judgment' or 'pro-choice without'?
