I always see people saying things like "I choose not to label myself..." and "labels are unnecessary..."... When did this become the cool thing to do? I just don't get it.
I am a gay guy and I am proud to be one. I feel like I'm part of a unique group of people. And so, I choose to call myself a gay guy until the day that changes. But I see so many people saying "I won't call myself anything... if I like someone, I like them". Why? What's wrong with just calling yourself what you are, changing that based on what you become? Is it some transcendentalist notion of being "above" labeling? Somebody please explain this to me.
