Drinking age
At parents' discretion.

Political stance

Selective Service
Don't know what this is...

Gay marriage
To each their own.

Universal pre-k
No thank you.

Sex education
I'll educate my own kids about sex.


Sin Tax

legalization of marijuana
Yes. I don't smoke, but I don't find it harmful, in fact beneficial for some.

Universal Health care
Nice in theory, but fascist in practice.

"performance pay" for teachers


Methods of birth control
To each their own, save using abortion irresponsibly as BC.

How many kids people should have
No one's business but mine and my partner's save we can provide for said offspring.

Vegetarian/eating meat
To each their own. I eat meat on the occasion (mostly chicken/turkey/fish; I've digestive issues with red meat).

gun control
No. Why take away someone's rights to defend themselves? Also, won't the criminals have guns anyway?

death penalty
No. All life is sacred.

No. He was made that way for a reason, and I'm not so lazy that I can't teach him to keep it clean.

Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction
If it's needed, go for it.

Assisted suicide
Against. Again, all life is sacred.

Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY
Against illegal immigrants. They should come in the legal way.

Gender Selection
Asinine. Isn't half the fun of having a baby guessing what the gender's going to be?

Fat Tax

Shopping Carts
Wipe 'em off.

Kids drinking soda/eating candy/poptarts for breakfast
I enjoy healthy food and instill healthy eating values in my kids.

Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies

If it's agreed upon by medical professional and patient, I don't see why not.

Government involvement in citizens lives
Government needs to get out of everyone's lives, period.

Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves
Disagree for anyone who's adult. It's their choice. Example: I was in a car accident ten years ago and had I been wearing my seatbelt I would've broken my neck, say doctors all across the board. The only thing that saved me was NOT wearing it and breaking the "law". (Nowadays I do wear it, though, through my choice)

Unassisted Childbirthing
To each their own, again.

Plastic Surgery

Chili (with or without beans)
I wish I could eat it. My IBS won't allow for it.

I hope it stays there for when it's needed, but I hate to see it abused.

dress codes for school/office
Something that should be common sense is made into rule or law. lol

Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections
Whatever, if you're paying for it. I don't want to be the one doing so through my taxes.

Introducing solids
Should be led per child.

Car Seats


Children and Pets
Having pets greatly reduces a child's risk for asthma and allergies.

Nursing in Public
Completely natural.

Cry it Out
Dependent on each family/child. I tried it with DS and it didn't work. That doesn't mean it wouldn't work with another child.

Television and Infants/Toddlers
America's babysitter. Do not approve.

Caring for your elderly parents

Meh. Waste of money.

In-N-Out Burger
Never heard of it.

Reborn dolls
Never heard of this either.

Homosexual orientation/relationships
Up to the individual. I don't care for it for myself.

See above.

Scary movies
I like them on the occasion, when there's actually plot and not just shock value blood and gore crap.

Transcultural adoption
Why not, if you're able to afford a child, does their race/culture matter?

Drug testing welfare recipients
On the fence on this one.

"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc

Organized religions
To each their own, if they could learn to stay out of everyone else's business. Sadly, they cannot.

Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula
Shouldn't be mandatory. It should be taught so that women will be educated as to the benefits of breastfeeding.

Family beds
Good for some, not for me.

TTC on assistance
Rather irresponsible.

Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits
Not a big deal. I had a crochet one growing up that my aunt made.

Leash backpacks for kids
Wish I had one with DS. Still wish I had one now, most of the time.

Beauty pageants
Teaches kids that being pretty is more important than being smart, having manners, or anything else of real worth.

TV watching for kids under age 2
Again, America's babysitter. I can do without TV altogether, period. It's not good for adults either.
