literally what is the point in denying people labels for their own experiences other than to create a false sense of "unity" in the lgbt community...microlabels help people understand their individual experiences and there's nothing wrong w that.
Whoa whoa hold up yo, I did not deny labels, and I’m not here for that. No putting words in my mouth. That is a supreme jerk move. Those labels are super important for some and provide them with life stabilizing guidance, community, and framework.
What I think is missing in discussion of labels is the open admission that ITS OK IF THE WHOLE THING STRESSES YOU OUT AND YOU WOULD RATHER NOT.
Some LGBTQ+ people don’t want to micro-identify. They want to just live their generally non specific queer lives and microlabeling can at times feel like breaking down heart and mind to an anxiety-inducing excel spreadsheet.
Labels are good for you, they are not good for me, and those are both ok ways to be.
