Why do people feel the need to hang labels around our necks?

Like the label that they put on us is some sacred cowbell that helps them to quantify and qualify us as human beings. I personally am far to complex for the labels that people try to put on me to really fit. And I'll be darned if I will allow some narrow minded, one-size-fits-all label dam my flow and define me. I will define me, and I will never let anyone else put some sticky, ticky-tacky label on me. Like they say 'it ain't easy being greasy' but it keeps the labels from sticking or pulling hairs as they fall off. I am a slippery kind of person and just when you think that you have pinned me down I'll squirt right out of your pigeon hole and get ghost!

Whoa I just love some o your topics... Us tranny folks know all about labels. It's one o THE topics on tranny forums, and not too many like the word "tranny" either lol...me? I use what works to get communicating, but stereotypes are there just to be blown away. Most folks aint so easy to box when you really get down to it.

People are always searching to define themselves. There is no one label that fits all because we are complex. I have many labels, bachelor, magician, writer, lecturer,and one in a while I hear someone refer to one of the ten dwarfs thrown in there, (Yes, I know that are only seven.)

"I personally am far to complex for the labels that people try to put on me to really fit" same here...trying to label me accurately is pretty much impossible really and more often than not, those who do feel that insane need to label others are so closed minded that they really have no clue what they're talking about and really dont have the ability to see past a persons outer appearance or lifestyle etc etc and end up labeling completely off side any way...
