I find myself rolling my eyes at the car seat activist crowd for the same reasons It's not that they are wrong, they are just intense!
Because like OP, it is something they (we) are very passionate about. Carseat safety was not the least of my concern before I got prego, then I started researching a little and now it is my passion and hobby.

We are having our first (and likely only) son. We both talked about it and agreed that there was no reason for us to make that choice for him, so we are going to leave him whole. He can choose differently later if he wants, and we will support him 100%. His body, his choice. And he will be different from dad, but that's ok, they will be different in many ways anyway.
