    Have Had Many Applied

    I have been labelled since the moment of my conception. I was a 'mistake' and then I came into a society that strives on labels as identification and in order to ensure security in troubled times. I then aided people to add labels to that as I started attending a Church and a...

    Labels Belong On Clothes, Not People

    Why do we label people anyway? Whats the point? I say, so what if someone is Gay, coloured, suicidal, hyper, depressive. They are still people on the inside, no matter how different they appear on the outside. Labels are just like reassurance for people who don't have the balls...

    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...

    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.

    Labels Are Deceiving

    I've been blogging in various locations on the net for 8 years now. I used to enjoy blogging about politics, but ran into a serious wall, when the labeling began. I was never registered to vote. I had a previous employer try to force me to register and to vote as they wanted...

    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...

    Identity

    It never was very clear to me who I really am. Therefore, I don't like others to identify me. Over the past decades I have lived multiple lives and still I cannot say which one is the ultimate me. Maybe I'm the amalgam of all these personae, who like actors played the different...

    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...

    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...

    Cruel Friends

    I don't like being labeled a **** by a so called 'friend' after she reminded me of how this guy, in 1974 or 75 took advantage of me at a party.  She dumped this 'information' on me in Sept. 2001.

    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...
