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.

LOL! Well the questions of friending memes don't put you under labels... You just say what you like and I'm totally okay with having things in common with people... I'm not okay with avoiding people because we don't have everything in common, and that's what it seems to be the reason under all these useless labels...

I am the first one to define myself, but I don't go into sub categories... I can say I'm a girl, I'm a nerd, I'm Italian,... but that is not something I use as an excuse to stay away from others... I don;t know if I'm making myself very clear... It's a delicate matter...

I am not the kind of person that uses labels as excuses like "oh you're straight, I'm gay... we can't get along" right from the start... I think more along the line with "oh hello, this is me, like to meet you" let's see one another as clean slates and talk before going looking for someone that's a mirror so that we can agree on everything and not grow into something more than we are...

I think that when we are open and we met people who's different we came out of that encounter different than we were before... But we need people like us to make us happy and feel accepted!

There is so much to say about it and I'm not good at it... Sorry LOL
