First triamester for. Beyond, only in extreme circumstances.
Should be 18. If someone can get drafted and killed at 18 in war, they should be able to drink.
Hard to say. Moderate. I try to look at all sides of an issue.
not sure what this is
Hmm... I'm not exactly sure what this is. If it is that all kids should be entitled to pre-k then sure. If it requires them to go to pre-k, that should be up to the parents to decide.
For. I had severe complications from chicken pox that I am still dealing with today. One of my aunts is also paralized from polio and has nerve damage. She needs help doing most of her daily activities. I wouldn't mind a modified schedule.
not sure what this is
legalization of marijuana
Universal Health care
Have trouble with one. I believe that everyone should recieve health care but I can also see the problems with the system that is being implanted.
"performance pay" for teachers
Well I don't exactly want to go to war but if it is absolutely necessary. I don't support the current war.
Methods of birth control
Whatever works best for each individual couple.
How many kids people should have
Hmm this one is hard. I do have a concern that the world's population just hit 7 billion and what environmental impact this could have in the future. However, if we limited everyone now, social security could be a nightmare in the future. We may have dug ourselves into a hole with this one.
I eat meat but I try my best to support grass fed beef and free range chicken companies. I would like to go vegetarian in the future but it's not possible for me right now.
For the most part against. However, I don't mind people such as Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacy getting fried nor do I have any sympathy for them.
Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction
Fine by me
For, everyone should have the right to die with dignity. But I believe only they can make that choice and that everyone should have a living will that should determine if that is what they want.
Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY
Hard one. I don't mind as much if they are here and they work hard (often at jobs that would suck to have) but the ones that are committing serious crimes (murder, abduction) need to be detained. It also isn't fair that many people have to wait to get their Visas and green cards.
An adult should be able to choose their own gender.
Against. This isn't fair to those that have a genuine health problem.
what's wrong with shopping carts?
Kids drinking soda/eating candy/poptarts for breakfast
I want to say against but I'd be a hypocrit because I did that through late elementary school all through high school
Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies
against, kids with peanut allergies need to learn to live in a world where people eat peanuts. A no peanut table will work better.
If the mother wants it and doctor oks it, then fine
Government involvement in citizens lives
No No NO!
Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves
Hmm... Maybe for kids. ugh this is a hard one.
If it is all cleared by a doctor and the mother's pregnancy is fine, then go for it.
morality wise, I'm against it. I think our culture places too much emphasis on beauty and people, especially women, need to be happy with themselves. The beauty industry disgusts me. I honeslty think people who have had plastic surgery look extremely creepy afterwards. However, it's not my place to tell someone what to do with their body or how to spend their money.
Also, if someone was in an accident and needs part of their face rebuilt, then I am all for it.
Chili (with or without beans)
Chili is awesome
I think it needs reform. It's necessary for so many people but I get frusterated with people who abuse the system.
dress codes for school/office
It's up to the school/office. I personally liked having a uniform for school because I never had to worry about what to wear or whether or not I was in style.
Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections
I'd prefer the women to go for vaginal birth but at the end of the day it's her body and her choice.
Well erm... I got sexual pleasure from being spanked so I'm against it.
Children and Pets
Children need to be supervised around pets, especially if they are small. And they need to be taught how to properly handle and care for a pet.
Nursing in Public
Very for. Nursing is very natural and it's oppressive to tell a woman that she can't nurse in public. Especially since it's ok for a man to walk around topless but not for a woman.
Cry it Out
Television and Infants/Toddlers
against. Young kids need to be interacting with their environment.
Caring for your elderly parents
Up to the individual family.
Well I have a diamond engagement ring so...
Fast food? Sure go ahead and eat it.
Not completely sure what this is.
for as long as everyone in the relationship is in the know and fine with it.
Well I'm against telling people what they can and can't put in their movies. Scary movies are often very fun to watch. However, I do think that some go to far, especially those that are in the exploitation category. Cannibal Holocaust had questionable and at times dangerous treatment of the natives involved and I do not like that actual animals were killed on screen. Guinea Pig chronicles was was nothing but a woman being tortued to death in an otherwise pornographic way. A Serbian Film was just disgusting and a bit morally reprehensible. Rape porn films disguised as horror I think are disgusting and extremely sexist. Slasher films with annoying characters that you can't wait to get offed are just dumb. Also, I am against the director treating the actors horribly but that goes for any movie.
Drug testing welfare recipients
"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc
It's not my business to tell someone how or what to spend their money on.
I don't support them and I believe that children shouldn't be indoctrinated into religion. I don't mind parents teaching their children religious traditions, but in the end, children should be able to decide for themselves whether or not to follow that religion.
Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula
Only if formula is ever found to be dangerous. But then, parents can always hire a wet nurse if that ever is the case.
Up to each family. I won't be doing this.
TTC on assistance
Hard one. I think it is more responsible to wait until you are financially stable before starting a family. If it was a mistake, that is one thing. But purposely trying to concieve I can't say that I support.
Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits
I am against the sexualization of young girls and very much against sexy swim suits for children.
Leash backpacks for kids
If they were more about talent, I wouldn't mind. But I hate how they make these young girls go through hours of beauty treatment at their young age. I think it sends a wrong message to them that their most important asset is looks which is just another example of the patriarchy oppressing women. And like the swim suit question, I am against the sexualization of young girls.
TV watching for kids under age 2
I would advise against it, but it's not my place to tell parents what to do with their kids. I don't plan to let my kids watch TV until they are 3. I have seen way to many parents put baby einstein movies on repeat play and stick their kids in front of it all day.
