"Except when I think of Alan Alda, I do not think in labels.  The first thing that comes to mind is the sound of his voice - same thing for Hitchens, actually.  The next thing that comes to mind is the passion with which he argued for…"

"Labels are just linguistic symbols.  When I think of I think of Alan Alda, I don't start thinking, "White, tall, American actor," but those might be the words I used to describe him (linguistic transfer of concept) to another…"

"If the labels were useless, they would have disappeared. A guy who doesn't want to end up at a leather queen bar might appreciate knowing that a certain bar attracts that type. That probably would be especially true for the gay you describe who…"

Strega commented on Quincy Maxwell's blog post 'Labels'
"The word "label" in itself is a very broad one. It can simply be a noun, like "table" or it could be an adjective, like "happy". It is an inherent human trait that we feel comfortable in tribes - it's how we…"

"@Davis G - I think you're wrong. I think these labels arose within the gay community and are useful to gays. A effeminate twink might want to steer clear of a leather bear bar full of hairy pudgy middle-aged men who like rough sex, for example."

Davis Goodman commented on Quincy Maxwell's blog post 'Labels'
"Be very weary of labels themselves in the gay world. Fem. Queen. Rice-queen. Bear. Leather-bear. Jock. Scruff. Top. Bottom. Masc. Straight-acting. Pig. Flamer etc. These terms are so full of useless stereotypes. Very little good comes from them. It…"

I am going to label myself. I am a gay atheist. Yes, it is a label. I like having this label. And I do not mind if others have labels. I actually want to see those labels. What would happen if we didn't have them? And yet many refuse to accept them or want them.

I want to know if people are of the same ilk as myself. Personally, I don't want to be groping around in a dark room, full of people without labels, in fear that I would grab something that I did not want to grab or grope.…
