Liked this paragraph:
But labels are the damnedest things. People start calling you something, and pretty soon the label begins to takes on meaning, and if you’re not careful, the label can influence your thinking one way or another, and you can find yourself reacting. The reactions might take the form of conforming, rebelling, ignoring, or just passively going with the flow, but if you’re a human being it’s hard not to react in some way. Even not reacting — what we would call ignoring — involves a process of deliberation. You’re not ignoring in the true sense of the word, because if you know something, you are not in a state of being ignorant of it.
