Does Formula Feeding define you?

I was reading a lovely article about a mom who BF till her little one was 4 - and one sentance stuck me:
"They think it defines me in some way; I’m a freak, a hippie, a pushy lactivist. That, or I must be passing judgment on them in some way."
It made me think - do they think that formula feeding defines them? Does it make they stuck-up, mainstream, a pushy formulalist (sorry, I was trying to come up with alternative terms! LOL) - are they passing judgement on the BFers in some way? Or is it because they think that formula feeding is "normal" and BFing is the bizarre thing to do?
If you feel that you are doing the best for your child and your family, why is it not possible that a BFing mom, even a full term BFing mom is doing the best for her child and her family?
