I Do Not Like Being Labeled

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 388 People

    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.

    Hey...Earth To Haters, I'M Not A Plush Toy

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    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 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  take time to correct it...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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....
