After a discussion I had last night about gender and sexuality, i was left with a question that popped into my bonce.
Why in a world where labelling is frowned upon, have people created so many labels that seperate and segregate them from each other? Maybe useless but thought I would put it out for debate

I think labelling is important, if I didn't have a label I wouldn't know it was me looking in the mmirror

Oh im not saying it just about gender and sexuality, it applies to all labels race religion all of it.
I find it confusing that people get offended if you use labels, but also get offended if you dont label them? Im live and let live too but if you call some one a human they get offended by being labelled human but yet still want to be called human. See my confusion. Not to pick on any particular person but heres an example
I answer the door and say "good morning, thank you for delivering my post mr post person" . Patrick then gets offended and says " I'm not a post person, post means before, what was, and I'm not before, I'm here now and I'm a letter and parcel delivering hornless unicorn!" "How dare you im violated and raped of my very person and being" then postman twat, sorry pat labels me as a hater.
See my confusion, frustration and just outright WTFness!

My answer is simple enough. I don't know why, but wish it wasn't so. I try not to label or judge. People who do so are rarely in possession of all the facts and their judgment or opinions are usually wrong. I like the "be and let be" attitude Mark.
