I don't actually dislike you and I don't think you hold a minority view at all, i actually think you hold the majority view in society.

If you go back and re-read, you'll see that I said you SENTIMENTS were what I found high-and-mighty and arrogant. Not you, just what you were saying/suggesting.
It's the same as when someone says something rude, or cruel. It doesn't mean that they're a rude or cruel person in general, but people who are usually nice can still make rude or cruel comments. That's how I viewed your POV - as high-and-mighty and arrogant. That's not to say you are either of those things, just that's how your comments were coming across on that particular issue.
It really isn't personal. I would have said the same thing to anyone else who posted what you did. It wasn't about you as a person, it was about how I perceived your sentiments.
I maintain that it's arrogant and high-and-mightly IMO to suggest that because you can do it, anyone should be able to, and if they don't, they're just lazy/selfish/not trying hard enough/etc. That's not just you and the smoking while pregnant situation, it's about any issue where that is suggested. If someone suggests that because THEY succeeded at something then EVERYONE should be able to, I will think it's arrogant regardless of who says it or what the topic is.
So, it honestly is not personal. I would have expressed that same viewpoint whether you were yourself, Benji or Delirium (who I often tend to agree with, not for the sake of agreeing with them, just because we have similar opinions a lot of the time) or VicPark or Lovemyfam (who I tend to disagree with most of the time).
