Why label? is it not the process of labelling that most of the disscussions on realjock have been about?
About how they split the gay community? how we stereotype and discriminate against others?
Yeah, you'll reply that its just a bit of fun, but we all know where that will end up.
Yeah, like poor terra22 who is distraught over being labeled a Twink!
Surfwarrior, I don't think there will ever be a time when we don't have labels. Though I can see that it can be used harmfully, it can also be used to help bolster a person's sprits (like, he's a total hunk!) and it's also necessary to distinguish individuals. How would you describe someone without labels?
I really think we take all of this too seriously since it's more about opinion then anything else. One man's twink is another man's Adonis.
I do feel that coming up with mean spirited labels is wrong but I don't think that was Timberoo's intent. Although I'm sure there are mean spirited individuals who will take the opportunity to reply. We have a label for them too... idiots.
By the way terra22, if you come by this post, I think you're a total hottie and not just another twink.
