When it comes to labels (to do with sexuality, &/or life in general), do you like them & think there is a need for them, or do they annoy you????

This is a tricky subject... For some people labels really work. However, I'm pretty against them. It may help with initially finding yourself, but sticking with it too long leads to a lot of people trying to further squish themselves into a box to keep up said label.

I dealt with this problem a lot with my sexuality and spirituality. For both, I always had aspects that I identified with certain labels, but there were also many different parts that didn't "fit". So, I tried really hard to forget those other parts to make the label fit better. In the end, I realized the label didn't really matter, because I knew how I felt about these things after years of trying to figure it out. So, at this point any sort of label used would just be for making it easier for other people to know. And... if they don't really have the time to find it out from me rather than just hearing a quick label, then they really don't need to know.
