""Jerk" is a label. How do you know that's a fair characterization? If someone has a bad day and says something out of line or if his comment is misunderstood, does that make him a jerk? There could be so much more to that person than…"

Strega commented on Quincy Maxwell's blog post 'Labels'
"I think labels dehumanise individuality, but if you want short cuts to people, they serve a purpose of sorts. An analogy might be that you pick up a book to see if you want to read it, and you check the story summary first. You might even read the…"

"Good point, thank you for that. But I have had conversations that feel like being male or female is a label. Especially when it comes to employment issues. I think it could be construed as a type of label."

"Does it matter whether you label yourself or someone else does it?  The problem with labels, as I see it, is they can be limiting.  There is a tendency for others to think that’s all there is to you.  They don’t look…"

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.
