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.

I love your answer & also miss the innocence of childhood, and the universal language of play. I absolutely HATE labels, but I've noticed it a lot in the friending memes & find it irritating.

But I get that people look for a community to "belong" to.

Yes I think that is human to try to find a place where we belong to, we have friends that have similar interests, families,... it's normal to feel attracted to people that can share something with us... But when the labels take over and they divide into sub categories and sub sub categories we fail... At that point we don't want to belong to something... we want to be separate from everyone else that is not 100% like us... At that point I think we fail as humans... We are okay with just what we know and we're not open to experience other people! It's sad... This question you asked is awesome and very deep! I was looking forward to it and the topic is very complex and interesting so THANK you for asking me! :) I'm glad my answer didn't disappoint you! :)
