    Don't Like It, But I Will Be Labeled

    People like to think that they know me. Some labels I really don't mind...you can say that I'm Dragon, you can say that I'm a male or a nudist (heck, I even use some of these labels to describe myself). The problem is that some people want to compartmentalize my entire being into...

    Labels Make Others Happy

    I hate being labelled, and feel quite secure without one thankyou very much! So what does it say about the people around me ,who insist on slotting me into a 'neat little box they prepared earlier' ? It has a slight hint of control, a sense they simply must...

    Do Not Label Me.

    I hate being labeled. Period. I hate that people can never talk to me and then assume that I'm some way. For example, some guy came into PetSmart yelling about how we don't have a certain kind of cat food. I tried to explain to him that it's a popular brand and sells out a lot...

    I don't want to label myself anymore.

    I've always been a heterosexual woman. Now I'm not. I don't want to label myself lesbian. I don't want to label myself Bi. Bi would be the closest label. But I don't want that either. Think I will just "be" for now.

    I'd Like to Be Recognized As Myself.

    I always avoid labeling others, because I don't believe people were meant to be packed into neat little collectives that act and think the same way. That's just not true. I've had a number of labels applied to me, and I can't stand it. They make me feel like others are...

    It Is Too Limiting!

    I guess I've always hated making a choice when it comes to filling out questionnaires etc., because I know that it closes doors in others' minds. It's just human nature, I do it to.  YOu think, oh he likes NPR, so he probably doesn't read People magazine etc.  Your mind...

    And Why Should I?

    No single label can do justice to the individual that I am. The problem with a label is that they assume if x is true, then y must also be true - but it is not.

    Some people call me arrogant,

    but is standing up for myself arrogant? Or is it just the fact that I'm disobeying authority by doing that? Some people call me quiet, others call me smart, those are the labels I don't mind. But, the labels that have no proof, trouble maker, rebel, those are not who I am....

    I'm attracted to both men & women.

    .... For me it's about making a connection, finding a common ground, a spark, an ability to turn each other on, the same wants, similar morals, making each other laugh, similar life goals & a deep intensive love for one another.... Gender affects none of the above! So why is it...
