    Labels are for high schoolers

    and people who are afraid to grow up.

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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 Was Labeled By A Judge Beyond Control And Incourageable

    I didnt go home after school because a pervert was following me in his car. I ran to my friends house instead. My mother told me to come home, but I waited for my friends brother to come home from work, so they could walk me home. When I finally got home, no one was home. I heard...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
