I would bet money that no one understands “vs. culture” better than moms. We’re thrown into it from the moment we decide to start trying or find out we’re pregnant. In an instant, we’re thrown into hospital birth vs. homebirth questions, breastfeeding vs. formula, cloth diapers vs. disposable, this brand vs. that brand, that car seat vs. this car seat. It’s overwhelming and at the end of the day feels like nothing less than a freight train of advertising campaigns, personal opinions that feel more like personal attacks, and social pressure to “pick a side” and stick to it in every anti vs. pro argument out there.
We’re told we have to buy the whole package or align with one side—and there is no opting out, you have to choose and you can’t switch sides. But we know that this just isn’t true.
Examples of Vs. Culture:
· Hospital vs. homebirth
· Breastfeeding vs. bottle feeding
· Homeschool vs. public school vs. private school (Homeschool even has secular vs. religious)
· Vaccinated vs unvaccinated
· Masks vs. no masks
· Meat eaters vs. vegans
· Android vs. iPhone
· Pro-life vs. pro-choice
· Republican vs. Democrat
Vs. Culture Affects Us on So Many Levels:
· Larger culture
