Should we even label SEXUALITY?

    I have thought for a long time that this only causes problems. No one is the same, everyone has different sexual interests and combinations of, and you certainly can't define something as complex as sexuality with a 1-6 Kinsey scale. Labeling only leads to segragating, not unifying.

    I say we stop labeling sexuality. Period.

    I have always felt that labels are for caned fruit only!!


    I know a kinky straight guy from the UK. He pisses in a cup, shoots his cum while he's self sucking and likes to fuck women with gay dudes looking at him. So what do we call him?
    Who the fuck cares. It's the media who likes to "Brand" everything. It is unfortunate, it's just here like any BRAND....

    In any field, as long as the terms we use are well defined and we use them in a way that maps onto reality well then they are useful and we should use them.

    There is certainly a wide range of things to describe in sexuality and it seems that there are few total absolutes. It may be the case that few people, if any, are 100% straight or 100% gay. But as long as the notions of gay and straight are not absolute ones they serve us quite well. Most people have either the vast majority of their sexual attraction derived from the opposite sex or from the same sex, so the terms gay and straight describe them quite well. If someone uses words like gay and straight as absolute terms meaning someome who always has all of their sexual attraction derived from either the same sex or the opposite sex and could not possibly ever be attracted in any other way, then the terms do not describe as many people as well.

    Ideally, yes, that's a great idea. I've liked "mostly gay" for me, but it doesn't fit in a check box anywhere so "gay" is just more convenient. I'm not necessarily limited by the definition, something to which my sexual history can attest. That being said, it's easier to find like-minded people via the label.
