Labels

All this talk about feminists and pornography and definitions has me trying to slap a label on myself.

I've never voted Republican, and am registered Independent. I think I'm pretty liberal on most issues, but there are little threads of conservatism flowing deep in me.

I am a feminist in that I desire the same opportunities and rewards for women as for men. But I absolutely believe that men and women are inherently different, and those differences should be celebrated. Women are good for certain things, and men are good for certain things. Now, of course, this is a great big generalization. I guess what I'm getting at is that I'm a supporter of Individualism, regardless of gender.

I get "turned on" by many kinds of porn, including male/male sex. But really, it's intimacy that turns me on. I'm not so very interested in the stranger or one night stand ideas. Give me two (or more!) people that have some feelings for each other, and that's HOT! :) I like to think of myself as more than tolerant. I want to be more than accepting.

So what do we have so far? Liberally moderate feminist, open-minded but as yet inexperienced ALL-sexual (as opposed to homo or bi). What else? I don't want to get into some personal stuff, but there are other ways that I'm probably radical, too.

Ah... I got it! I'm a HIPPIE!! :) Now who's got the joint...?

Labels are too much work for nothing. There is more freedom without them.

You know being a Republican doesn't automatically make you a knee-jerk Southern Baptist reactionary who thinks Bush is the second coming of Jesus Christ.

I label myself as whatever the rest of you are not.
