or to put it bluntly - stop labeling me with your delusions // projected fantasies - and stop telling me what you " know " i think because " reasons "

i wish i could end this thread at the end of the last sentence - but hey - due to the T&C it has to be dragged out - so here goes

OH - and a caveat - this rant is based on real life interations - not the internet [ although cetain threads in the last few days have compelled me to write this down ]

in no particular order i am ` apparently ` a :

white male , thanks - i was confused untill folks told me - it wwasnt very obvious - i didnt work it out from the obvious clues of skin colour and penis check

cis gendered , i had to look this up - ` blinks `

hetronormalative - again - google was my friend ` blink , blink `

i could go on detailing more labels ascribed to me that are pulled from the bat crap crazy world of " labelling " -

but - having " identified " me it now REALLY pisses me off that i am now told what i think - soley based on the assigned " labels " - just WTF ????

if you want to knnow what i think - try asking me - or ATS members can get a general idea by reading my threads // posts

but for FOOK sake - dont try to tell me what i think based on your fantasies

end

But you don't get it. It's much easier that way. If they actually did it the way you suggest, then they'd have to, you know, think and stuff. Strawmen based on labels are just so much easier to knock down.

Don't pay attention to things like 'cis' gender. Just ignore them.

Terms like that were invented for academic settings not for normal people.

But I thought cisgender was the term for normal people ... nevermind.

The Ministry of Safe Spaces and Feelings would like you to disassociate yourself from your ego for just one minute and conclude that as a white hetro male, you are everything that is wrong with the world.

Clearly, you're not falling for their reverse racism, which is pretty good for a white fella.

Very well said. I agree. I will add one thing that really bothers me about the diluted shaming labels being thrown out at will is the label "racist" being added to other labels and race clearly has nothing to do with it. It's just added as a token insult and there is no basis for it.

It's almost lie a knee-jerk reaction used against anyone that doesn't agree.

labels put you in brackets. I hate labels.

especially the bracket "normal" - jus means anyone not in this bracket is weird.

we are who we are, let people call you what they want. who cares about them anyway!

The internet is a giant Schrödinger's Box. We can be anything and are anything until observed.

Can't wait to see what a government census form looks like in 10 years.

I too had to look up the two "new terms" just like the OP. I remember when I was a kid growing up(not that long ago, early 90's) we were still taught to worry about ourselves and not what others are doing.

It was good advice then, wish it would make a comeback.

Those people are just SLIDs (Silly Label Inventors and Disseminators). You can respond by telling them so.

I was having a little think about this sort of thing yesterday, as it happens.

I realised that the few people I've been close to and called friends were all pretty open minded and far from being bigots.

I also realised that the people who have lied to me, stolen from me and otherwise hurt me were those very friends.

Being a tolerant sort of individual doesn't make a person any more honest or kind.

So bugger labels. There are worse things than being whatever you're labelled as or being some sort of 'ist'.

If a person can treat others honestly and fairly then perhaps there should be some sort of label for that. Because that's the one I'd give credence to.

My point really is that the opinions that are assigned to a person once they've been labelled are likely to be negative towards another group of people who have a different label.

And yeah I had to look up those terms as well.
