I got called a treehugger the other day, so I just have one question..... Are you breathing? Then thank a tree.
Stereotypes are made up by people who are too afraid of others who are different than them to even attempt understanding, so don't ever feel ashamed by one that gets applied to you. I simply refuse, I will be a proud treehugger til the end.
As a great lady once said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
So anyway, in conclusion.... yay for trees!
