Thank you Jane. I know a lot of people see it the same. But it is already out there and as you can tell from the response rates there is division. I ascribe to the umbrella model as far as the labelling goes, but I’m no fan of labelling. In the end it is somewhat necessary as they do help us communicate and find community. Without the label what would we call this site? The problem isn’t necessarily the labels themselves, but rather how people respond to them.m I mean we can have 500 names for different types of roses but no one really hates a rose (unless maybe allergic). I for one invite the discussion as it help create a platform from which to communicate who we are and I choose not to denigrate CD’s or gender fluid or any other identity that is out there. It’s probably best to think of it as one big family and some are wonderful cousins and some are siblings.
Peace to you, Ambassador Cloe
