    Who The Hell Does?

    Labels are disgusting and I dont like them, in fact who does? It annoys me, angers me, and sometimes even hurts me. Its weird actually...how I try to express myself through clothing and get stared at because of that. But if you think about it, we shouldnt worry about other...

    I Have This Habit When I'm On Here...

    I add different experience groups to my EP profile on occasion. However, I've been noticing something: after an amount of time being associated with that particular "I" statement, that label, I drop it. I think the most I had on here was in the 30s...

    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 Really Do

    People who label others or categorize them are the ones I dislike the most whether its by age, sexual preference, race, location, appearance, language, mannerism, and so on.I firmly believe in the ability to change even after a big mistake as long as you Β take time to correct it...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Trolls have given me many labels over the past few months including fur-f--g, *********, manchild, asspie, and many other insulting names. Which I feel are unjustly gained. Just because I like kids shows does not make me a *********, nor does acting childish on occassion...

    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.

    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...
