Don’t label me!

Has anyone noticed lately that the Right have started a new “thing”.

They say something actually homophobic or similar and then say stop labelling them as exactly what they are. For example, take “Bishop of Tyler”.

Too break it down Bishop J Tobin said that “true” Believers of God were not to participate in the LGBT pride month. That homosexuals are harmful to families and children (Oh, I burst you laughing at that one).

Or like Press Secretary Sarah Sanders saying she feels “uncomfortable” being called a liar. Then the very next day made a statement that was a lie about Obama being involved in the Russians and didn’t care about it. Even though the GOP have denied that Russians have been involved with in the White House whatsoever. With proof that Obama was concerned about it.

So why should people stop labelling people with exactly what they’re doing? If you don’t like the label, maybe you should look at yourself again?

I actually got into a discussion with a pro-lifer about how can you talk to people, when you’re pro-life, without others calling you anti-choice. As I explained, that is exactly what they are. Saying “no matter what, you will not allow people to have an abortion” Takes away their choice. How is that “pro-choice”?

 

The wrong one…

One of the frustrating things in this day and age is getting hit on and asked out on a date by someone you are just NOT in too. Why you ask? Shouldn’t we be flattered and honoured that someone finds us remotely attractive? I say to you friend, No…For one tiny little label…”Friendzone”.

I can’t even begin to say and tell how many times I have said “No” to a proposal of a date because I am just not interested, to wake up the next day to a whole posts of being tagged in a “Friendzone” type meme. I have been publicly called a slut and humiliated¬†in front of my ex (which is a huge NO NO!) all because “How come girls go one about how there are no ‘good guys’ out there and then we end up chasing jerks”.

Except I have never once said that there are no good guys out there? I don’t even believe it. None of my girlfriends have said it either. Yet, because of one guys bruised ego we are automatically given a label of being bitches and harlots because we said “No, not interested”. I in fact still keep being¬†asked out by one particular guy all the time, even though since I’ve known him I’ve had two relationships! Yet I made to feel bad because I choose not to date him, still? If I kept chasing a guy like that, I’d be called “desperate” and still I am in the wrong, for saying “No”.

It is actually terrifying these days to “reject” someone. I use to literally just say “I’m sorry, I’m just not interested”, but now I feel like I have to come up with a whole explanation. I want to be able to say that girls do this too, but I never really seen a girl ever complain about being put into a “Friendzone”. I honestly believe it’s more scary these days to reject someone rather than asking someone out.
