She Just Wants to be Labeled

Yes, some things need labels.

Food, so we know what we are eating.
Stores, so we know whether we are buying underwear or windows.
States, so we know what we can smoke and what we can't.

Except for titles, people really don't need labels.
You do need to know if you are speaking with the CEO and not the mailroom clerk.

That is really where it should stop.

I don't care if you are pansexual, conservative, liberal, right-winger, transgender, blah, blah,blah.

You are a person.
Or, are you not?

We shouldn't be put into a box with a label.
I know I have different ideas and I would have to be put into many boxes or have my own miscellaneous box.

Some people are just assholes and some people aren't.

Maybe we just need two boxes: Asshole and Not asshole.


Political labeling really does annoy me to no end.

Maybe this is why I choose to not be affiliated with a party.

Both sides are so sure they are totally right and the other side is totally wrong.

And they throw conservative and liberal back and forth like they are insulting each other.
But, how is it an insult when the other person is content with who they are?

It's like yelling at me " You, you WOMAN!"

Ooh, you got me there.

How could you be so... accurate?

    I'm thinking of starting my own church called: The First Nondenominational Church of Not Being An Asshole.
    I don't expect much, but at the very least...
    On a related note, we're supposed to buy underwear? Good to know.

    1. Al, starting your own religion is a good way to make some coin. You are a smart man.
      Yes, you are supposed to buy underwear so if you are ever in a car crash you are covered.

  3. I agree with the thought of not labeling as much as we do. Also, kids can get labeled in their school years and they think they are that label, which can impact how they feel about themselves. However, I am glad that they do label some clothes, because sometimes it is hard to tell if the garment is inside out except for the label ;)

  4. The whole political thing is dumb indeed. Let's hate because they are this or that, pffft. Labels are stupid for the most part. The asshole or not idea I can get behind.

  5. I think the Asshole category would be a much higher percentage than the non asshole. People like to label because they get confused otherwise. You can literally see the tiny sparks fly out of their ears. When I saw Trump with Palin yesterday, I thought it is Asshole and Assholi

  6. Yeah, now that "conservative" and "liberal" are both thrown around as an insult, the very sound of them are like nails on a chalkboard to me. Just because I know after hearing/reading one of those words I'm going to see some dumb political rant where someone gets put inside of a box and is "the enemy" for believing something differently. I would definitely put that into the "asshole" category.

  8. I love the thought of people who are assholes being branded by huge labels: "I'm an asshole." And none of the rest of us should have labels. It is ridiculous.
