Labels are strange. They are these boxes into which I cannot fit myself in. I, like everyone else, am too big just for one. So when I use labels I cascade them.
The biggest problem is when you can’t cascade them. I am neither fully asexual nor a lesbian nor a demisexual nor a grey asexual. I used all four labels to call myself. What should I call myself? “It’s complicated”?
Nothing against “queer” but I feel too boring for that. Bookworm despite not reading this year that much feels much better.
LGBT? Most of the people, me included, associate it with mostly cis gay men, I am 100% not those three.
Labels are a simplification. I am an
human elf and humans elves are complicated.
