So this is something I've thought about a lot and I'm actually having to do a bit of research on, my degree show piece is most likely going to relate to it as well so I thought why not make a thread angel.gif

What labels do you apply to yourself? What labels have you had from other people? Do they align? When people judge you and label you as one thing or another, are they ever wrong?

How important is identity to you in general? What makes up yours? What do you think influences it or why it's even a thing???

Discuss etc

I think every personality trait is a label, especially if attributed to you by someone else. If you describe someone as kind or loud or sociable or whatever that is still a label as they all have connotations.

This is a funny one. I'm kind of exiting the phase of being officially classified as a 'twink', but I'm not hairy enough to be an 'otter'. I've had this discussion with friends and we all decided I'm currently in "no mans land" until I become a "daddy" in 10-15 years time. There needs to be a new tribe for us.

I think of myself as a grape - gay, republican, atheist, pacifist, European.

Selective ambivert? Christ.

This can be a problem with labels it feels like peple make stuff up to suit them being "different" or "quirky" or conversely people have to put others in boxes they don't really have to be in just because people like the ease of putting people into the boxes they know. Aly's post a few up is a good example, in the gay community you have to be this this or this and if you're not thos then you're in this no man's land, or they'll be like "well you must be something", or like if you're gay in a primarily straight group you're known as "the gay one", it's a bit silly really but I suppose it's human nature, we lie the ease of judging and categorising people on our pre-existing schema and the similarities or differences with themselves.

If you give yourself a label, I do think it can come across as self-indulgent and self-absorbed. Especially if its a bit of a 'wtf' label.

Labels should not, and ultimately do not, matter. What matters is how you regard yourself.

You're right in that labels don't matter but it is just part of our culture to dish them out, even if we don't realise. Like you might assume someone identifies as a certain sexuality or is a fan of a certain type of music just because of how they dress. You'll pass people on the street and be like they must be homeless or an addict or whatever. Someone who is heavily tattooed might be assumed a criminal, like there's all these labels that are essentially judgements that range from anything as far as innocently being too quick to judge someone (ie, maybe thinking they're shy before you get to know them) to extremes like racism, homophobia, sexism etc

The categories mentioned within the gay community is an interesting point actually that I never even thought about. When I think of sexuality labels I just think of your bog standard lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender etc without thinking about the sorta made up sub categories. Lesbians have them as well, there's like lipstick, femme, butch etc which is just pointless imo. Do you guys think that perhaps stems from the whole idea of "gaydar" and the excessive need by both gay and straight people to identify those who aren't heterosexual? Is it actually useful to have this certain stereotype you can hold yourself to so people are more inclined to assume in some cases?

I think it's from the gay community and it's culture being so physically and sexually driven. You think about how hard it was to have a relationship openly just 10 years ago, much less 50. I think as a whole the gay community is still finding its footing in how it operates to start to care more about cultivating a relationship without having to live a double life.

Also. We be ho's. And if you are looking for a hookup on an app you can adjust your settings to where only certain "tribes" can interact with you.

You can't put a label on me, and I don't think labels as a whole are healthy, we are all individual unique people. We may have similar traits but every person has that beautiful thing that makes them different.
