I think labels are like warm blankets. As soon as you wrap up someone in one, you become comfortable in knowing exactly how you should feel and deal with them.  Personally, and especially online, I try and restrain myself to just responding to the actions a person takes and not worry about what it may indicate about them unless it's relevant.

I've gotten that! But really just on Twitter, from someone who knows nothing about you other than seeing some tweet they disagree with. "You don't endorse my chronic lyme disease? YOU MUST BE A TRUMP SUPPORTER!!!"

That's happened to me on reddit too and I'm pretty damn anti-Trump.

Now where I come from
We don't let society tell us how it's supposed to be
-Uptown, Prince 👉

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.
