This is definitely going to be controversial read. It’s going to be a bit random and jump around a bit. If you dare to follow along, I’m curious how you may feel about these topics or choice of words.
How functional would the world be if we had no labels? Would we still know what something was in order to buy into it or pay for it or to accept or not accept it? What would our alternative way of looking at something or someone be if they weren’t labeled? Example, what if there were no such thing as the word label, and therefore, say a woman who was interested in another woman just because their energies matched, would you still call her a homosexual? The label and definition is definitely limiting and puts a person into a box that if something were to evolve, change later, the label would stick. In alot of Christian’s minds, homosexual is a dirty, perverted, label that they definitly believe shouldn’t be condoned and therefore they may even give up their own natural feeling about it, just to stay in the status quo of the church or to be accepted…atleast that was my experience growing up for a long time. I had fear put in me by my parents that I was going to hell and that I was a major sinner if I choose to live this way. I find it likely that labels are created because it is for other’s needs to have labels mainly because the word “label” was put into our vocabulary at birth, not so much the person being labeled’s benefit.
On another side note, why does there need to be 14 different kinds of bananas, strawberries, tomato pastes? Is it because of money or true love for a different label of a kind of fruit and yet we from ancient times have heard that homosexuals were labeled fruitcakes? What a coincidence. Why do some people believe that being interested in the same sex is wrong? If you like fruit and cake, don’t call them fruitcakes, bc it is very much a doublestandard! I am also passionate about love. No matter the person, gender or which kind of fruit? Or what flavor of cake? Can you guess if I’m someone that appreciates labels? Or have you sensed that they are overrated and irrelevant based on how I personally want to treat or think of a person or situation. I prefer no labels. Humans are all different, thankfully so! We share one thing in common, emotions. Some would label some as narcissist or emo path , based on how many times their emotions were shared or socially accepted. Which brings me to a whole new label, average, normal, socially acceptable. And who exactly created the the right to only really accept the average, normal or status quo? And if they did, didn’t they also created the ones on the outside of that spectrum as well? It’s the way the system is set up. Seems it tries to serve as to balance out, maintain, or create and destroy. Was it our government? Was it us a people…a whole? Was it a select few that felt the need to govern and control for their own benefit? How are they labeled? Legal, political, select few, the wolves as far as I’m concerned that created the idea and then the labels of religion and laws that have ingeniously maintained a status of control. The sheep are led blindly with a rod and wrath(staff) as to comfort and as to obey every law, label, route in order to make sure the average, status quo, normal are under control. All the ones that test the system, act out from environmental, genetic, or chemical changes have now been labeled and put into categories and mostly kept separate in some form or fashion away from the “norm”! Some are even killed! The root of all of the above? Money! Power! Religion! Everything in this world besides unconditional love involves all the above because money, power & religion is needed in order to continue the cycle.
So…How do you act like your label? Ever thought about it? Because as a woman, I prefer another woman as someone to spend the most of my time on earth with, I’m labeled a lesbian. To who’s benefit is that? What am I supposed to act like, look like, in order to meet the label? What if I am nothing like the labeled definition at all? Why can’t we just be called humans and we either get along, become productive, originally creative individuals that have no labels, but yet a soul and emotions that can help make this world a better place? Just because I love my girlfriend doesn’t mean that I’m against populating or raising a family or perhaps I am not for it but really have no opinion. I mean isn’t the world kinda already overly populated? I guess that’s my opinion, oops, I said I have no opinion. That doesn’t mean I don’t see the benefit and absolute joy from creating a family or raising another child. I just think that if we were to really evaluate why we want to do that first, then maybe our intentions would be more pure and therefore, the child will ultimately have a better chance from the start of having a happy and productive life. I started out this whole talk with the category of labels. I find it to be ultimately unnecessary and possibly limiting to have labels. I mean if you take the label off of every can of produce at the market, people may go crazy for a while, or they may just figure out how to decrease the amounts needed. Seems we live in a world where we think their wouldn’t be enough if we didn’t have money…I disagree completely because of it’s root and reason for being created in the first place. There is alot more I could go into regarding money and what it has been a tool for really! I think the world can definitely survive without them. One change at a time, one talk at a time, will do. Good day human friends!
“We’re running into a lot of new problems today because of what we emphasize in this culture. The word ‘success’ to the average person means earning a lot of money and having a home, two cars, children in college. Success to me is entirely different to what success is to the average person. Success is being a successful human being in terms of pursuing what you believe in. If you believe in making paintings, writing poetry, writing music. If this is what you really want, you’re successful to yourself. But to be successful to your culture means to sell yourself short of what you really want” Jacque Fresco
