some people should wear their lips like scarves.

I've learned to avoid the subject of homebirthing because I've honestly gotten similar reactions about how I must be crazy (or sometimes they say "brave" when they really mean "stupid") or what if this or what about that. It's like the opposite end of the spectrum, but the same reaction. In your situation, if you WERE planning a VBAC, you would probably get the same crap just from a different set of haters. If avoiding the subject doesn't work then telling them point blank that they are being rude or nosey probably will.
