I don't know, you tell me.
I'm a unassisted birthing, extended breastfeeding, babywearing fool.
I dress "normal" only because I've noticed people are more receptive when I appear to be sane. But, I do love putting on a sarong and tank top, with my hairy pits and legs showing.
Somebody just made a comment the other day that I'm a little hung up on The Vagina Monologues. Yay! I'm stuck on protecting women and girls from violence! I take part in community service on a regular basis, raising money for women's shelters, teen runaway shelters, food banks, toys for tots, etc. I volunteer reading to underprivileged kids, and dancing with senior citizens! I support other fundraising attempts for education, AIDS, cancer, and premature birth. I'm going to participate in a gay pride march in a couple months.
I am VERY loud and VERY opinionated. As I've said several times, I'm a nursing student, and am going to get my Masters in Nurse Midwifery, Doctorate in Nursing Science, and a degree in Public Health Law. I'm involved in student government at my college.
I'm going to meet with some members from congress in less than a week and a half to discuss higher education and the federal PELL grant. Anybody have anything they'd like me to say?
I am the only "radical" person in my area. Therefore, some of my radical ideas are a bust. Say, Project One Voice. Pffft. Vagina Monologues. Pffft.
Every mother I know has given birth via cesarean. So, that whole unassisted birthing thing makes me even more of a nut. Oh, and my children are the only non-vaccinated children at their school... EVER. Not only am I extended nursing, but for the first many months of my son's life, I breastfed with the Supplemental Nursing System because of a medical condition (breast hypoplasia) that keeps me from breastfeeding exclusively.
So, am I radical enough for you (she says wearing a paisley print yoga pant and cami showing the pit hair, with bare feet)?
