ask me anything meme - day 08 (oct 8th)  
Why is it that after all of these years of fighting "labels" are we now labeling ourselves. (LBGTQIA, CIS, etc) What are your thoughts on labels? cherrytattoo77

This is a topic I feel very strongly about and I hope I'll be able to give a clear answer, because - when I get excited about something -  I start going on and on and on about it and I get very philosophical xD I'll try to avoid that. Promise!

I HATE labels! Humans are all unique and there should be no labeling if not one: ME!

I am who I am. No matter my sexual orientation, my color, my beliefs. The things that make me different and unique make me beautiful. I don't need to belong to a group of people to be accepted, I need to meet different people to be able to grow, without differences we are nothing, we're not humans!

I think kids got it right: bring a kid to a park (your kid or the kis of someone you know, don't kidnap anyone for this experiment) and let it go play... They will play with whomever is there... They're not going to ask the other kids for whom they're going to vote, if they are Vegans or what's their heritage. They're not going to give a damn about what they wear as long as it's comfortable... They just label each other as "stuff i can play with" and everything falls in that category.

This is why I am not okay with Tumblr and with lists like THIS... Why do we do this to ourselves? If we really want to be accepted for who we are, why do we spend so much time trying to put little pieces of ourselves into different boxes? I don't understand it.

So who am I? I am ME! I don't have to tell you which age group I belong to, if I'm democrat, liberal or republican, if I'm white or hispanic or black,... if I'm gay, het or any other if that definition that are in that list... I am who I am, talk to me, see what's inside of me and then make your decision about me. Don't separate me into labeled boxes until there's nothing left of me. Let's go to the park and play! All these letters don't matter, they never did and they never will! The only thing they'll do is making us grow apart and loose our individuality.

When I clicked the list I was expecting to see some shitty tumblr definitions but I was actually quite pleasantly surprised... those are all very basic and widely accepted and used words in conversation between normal human beings (as opposed to tumblr human beings who are like a separate species who live in their own reality)

Tumblr have shot themselves in the foot anyway with their obsession with labelling everything, because what's happening now is that mainstream and dangerous categories of people are resorting to tumblr-style labelling to pretend that they are victims in the world... I don't know if you have ever heard of "incel" (if not, wait until I post my next Peach dump) but it's basically a group of those disgusting men who believe they are "nice guys" and think that women owe them friendship and sex just because they are nice, the kind of guys who get rejected or dumped and end up committing a mass shooting to take their revenge on all women (???) or who murder the partner who left them, etc... well, tumblr legitimised these people to feel like victims!! they created a definition, they even created their own fucking FLAG, and they now associate with each other and make posts lamenting their condition as if it's some sort of illness they were born with, rather than something they themselves have caused?? And it's tumblr who taught them to do that, to put a label on everything and to categorise the world based on who is "oppressed" more... I think and hope that as a microcosm, tumblr is destined for implosion, because it's done a lot of damage already in the short time it's been around...

Where is the emoji with the finger that points up because THIS is so damn true and I agree on so many levels!

To me even that list I posted is too much LOL I just know that I personally hate to be labeled but I was born this way (using the words of someone we love) and I can't change who I am :D

What you wrote about this INCEL thing is so disgusting and I cannot believe we are at this point... How can I still get surprised though... Look who's running for president in America (He said "I could 'shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and I wouldn't lose voters " CAN YOU FUCKING BELIEVE THIS DOUCHEBAG?) this world is a mess...

I really hope tumblr will implode... but at that point all the tumblr people will have to go somewhere else... so maybe it's better to keep them there and let them be... What a mess!
