Just arrived ???? Looking forward to discussing topics of interest and forming new friendships. To start off, I want to ask, do you find it easy to hold a conversation without referencing things with labels? I.e. Wendy is an atheist ????

I think so, unless it is a positive thing of interest..

Welcome! I think it's human nature to categorize people. That's Wendy she is a stand up person. It gives the person you are talking to a reference point. You could say oh that's just Wendy. but now you know that's Wendy and nothing else.

Welcome aboard. I try to use labels only when it's relevant to the discussion; otherwise, we're all just people.

welcome to the site. I am not that concerned with labels.

Welcome, Wendy.

Wendy- I am NOT an atheist- because I refuse to get into a protracted conversation about man-made gods, or characters than can come back from the dead --- or walk on water either.

If I am going to waste time, I can think of more entertaining ways.

welcome to the site, i don't use labels in that way no. labels have a use depending on the conversation. if its about gods and religion, sure i want to know what the persons position is, before i respect their opinions on the subject, but not in a generic conversation.

Welcome to the site. If you want to go down the rabbit hole on labels there are threads for that, if you don't there are threads for that too.

Honestly, I don't pay attention. I don't go out of my way to avoid or use labels. Use depends upon context.

Welcome !

It is a rarity for me to use labels in conversation, which I perceive as hiding the true person.

Labels have become so ingrained in our society that it tends to be difficult not to rely on said labels.

lol, we so love our labels here! My best advice is post to the threads and send messages to those here who interest you. On the lower right side of your profile is a listing of members close to you too. Welcome to our community!
