We passed a Prius (pious) yesterday sporting a bumper sticker which declared in a multi-Pastel hues "born at home". AIBU to think this may be the smuggest car in Great Britain and should fuck off. (Lighthearted thread. smile)

Lol coffee 'cars and vaginas don't mix' that quote made my day!

I find this insufferably smug........

That's brill! My mother used to do that. I still feel sick about it today.

Oh, but my dc had a tee that said "spit on that tissue, and I'm calling social services"

Don't ban that one!

Hmm my 5 yr old ds had a fab t shirt that said muck spreader! Over the top of a tractor spreading muck! I thought very apt.

You can get T-shirts that say all kind of sanctimonious shit to be fair. I just ban any clothing with words on it before the child is old enough to read it.

Give me one example of someone who thinks they are inherently better because of the setting of their basest bodily function?

NaturalBaby Mon 31-Dec-12 15:50:43

You can get T-shirts that says 'I only drink mummy milk' or words to that effect.

BodyOfEeyore Mon 31-Dec-12 15:44:59

Can I get one that says 'sucked out because we'd both had enough'?

Alistair - it was the bathroom floor for me! I was just giving a generic example grin

Trapclap - that's not true of everyone. I think the more accurate generalisation would be to say that people who think they are better are more likely to make choices such as homebirthing and then go on about it forevermore.

Oh please, of course people who home birth think they are better...

I'm sure some do, but not all of us. I couldn't give a shit where anyone else chooses to give birth as long as it works for them. I don't think home birth is better, just that it was better for me.

ivykaty44 Mon 31-Dec-12 14:58:08

i had a hospital birth and don't care if you had a home birth, good for you if it makes you feel clever or better. Same as height is seen as a sign of health and better - it isn't tall people still get ill.....

trapclap Mon 31-Dec-12 14:53:53

Oh please, of course people who home birth think they are better...

The bed of woven lentils 'goes' better in the kitchen I have found.

Maybe there is some kind of proportionality between emissions smugness. Pious emissions of purest unicorn fart from vehicle making pious emissions of organic clad lotus woo babies at home more likely?

'Why is it smug? Does it in any way proclaim that they are superior?

I think some of you have issues.'

Soupie it is a well known fact that Priuses produce clouds of Smug. It's a real pollution problem in San Francisco.

Kitchen floor, Kung?

How common!
Did n't you have time to get to the yurt?

I think cars & vaginas don't mix is my quote of the week!

MissCoffeeNWine Mon 31-Dec-12 14:29:59

I had to go and search out where I read it and establish if it's true as it is bandied about on some woo-sites. I've found enough references to it happening though at the 2006 conference. In articles like this

I think that's enough reason for a backlash but I agree it's a bit weird to most people who will read it (any birth bumper sticker apart from Midwife on Call is weird IMO) Cars and vaginas don't mix.

Baublesinafield Mon 31-Dec-12 14:29:51

Is that a comment on free ranging flange topiary, goths? smile

TandB Mon 31-Dec-12 14:25:29

I had a homebirth - entirely natural and no pain-relief. This pleased me.

However, I suspect the guy driving behind me on the M4 may be less delighted by my homebirth experience.

Why on earth do you need to announce to the world that you pushed a baby out of your vagina on your kitchen floor?

Coffee Fucking hell, really? I think we all know what their motivation was for that hmm

AWhistlingWoman Mon 31-Dec-12 14:07:38

Coffee that would explain a lot. That's awful.

MissCoffeeNWine Mon 31-Dec-12 14:03:26

I think a lot of the birth bumper stickers came about as a backlash to ACOG handing out 'home deliveries are for pizza' bumper stickers at their 2009 conference? Not 100% on that but remember reading that around the web somewhere.

PickledInAPearTree Mon 31-Dec-12 14:03:08

Soup I'm chuffed for bits with anyone who had the birth they wanted..

I have mates that have given birth at home with no pain relief and I think you double hard girl you.

Bit bumper stickers? Ridic.!

Whats it for?!

Why do you need to put this anywhere- just why? Who are they telling? And to what end?
