    WTF - w/Kevin A. Phillips - Labels, Labels, Labels

    in Health

    THIS WEEK:  Labels, Labels, Labels

    By (one) definition, a 'label' is; a small piece of paper, fabric, plastic, or similar material attached to an object and giving information about it. Yet how many of us carry INVISABLE LABELS?

    While most of us are familiar with a variety of 'labels', it is often the 'invisable labels' we acquire in this journey called LIFE that impact our ability to experience all that is available. These 'labels', on how we have defined ourselves and those people, places and things around us, are why we continue to experience all that we do. Join Kevin & the Marvelous Maggie for the ONLY LABEL WE EVER NEED TO CARRY...


    Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire.  If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)

    Wacky Warning Labels

    in Politics Conservative

    When Bob Dorigo Jones started the Wacky Warning Labels™ Contest 17 years ago he wanted to showcase the lengths to which companies feel they must go to avoid the lawsuit-happy culture that is unique to America. Fast-forward to this year’s Contest, and the “winners” are crazier than ever. As the Contest creator and Senior Fellow for Center for America, which sponsors the Contest, he points out that each year, new and ever-costlier symptoms of the plague of abusive lawsuits on our economy and way of life find their way to the public’s eye. This year, he noticed a new trend in labels and, by extension, lawsuits and lawsuit prevention by foreign companies doing business in the U.S.


     


    In the past, warning labels like the one on a fishing lure that advised: “Harmful if swallowed,” and the baby stroller that cautioned: “Remove child before folding” dominated the contest. However, those warnings almost sound logical compared to the winner of the 2014 contest.


     


    This year, the wackiest warning label in America as selected by the audience of a national television show was found on a cell phone battery booster. It warns: “Get rid of children.”


     


    Bob Dorigo Jones is senior fellow at the Center for America, creator of the annual Wacky Warning Labels™ Contest, and the bestselling author of "Remove Child Before Folding: The 101 Stupidest, Silliest and Wackiest Warning Labels Ever."

    in Women

    Certified Integrated Transformational Life Coaches Vicy Wilkinson and Ingrid Sthare talk with listeners about things that are difficult and very uncomfortable to discuss as part of a series called Stuff That's Hard To Discuss. This second episode is about labels:  how we use them, why we use them, how they're useful and how they're harmful.  Because we want to encourage thinking and dialogue about difficult subject matter, we talk about race, sexual orientation, religion, and the downfalls of making assumptions based on such broad labels and stereotypes.

    Labels

    in Lifestyle

    I started thinking about labels when I started trying this podcast thing yesterday. I want to have a show on them, and would like to have more in the future, because prejudice and labels go hand in hand. They are an emotional connector. They are words that convey, or at least believe to convey, ideas. Ideas we like make us feel good and want to be near other supposed like minded people. Ideas we don't like or agree with help us segregate ourselves from those people. This is bad news, and one of things that really degrades humanity and sets us back.
    We'll talk about what labels are, main labels that separate us, social class, religious, prestige, etc. Why we label, what it does for us, and how it hurts us. Also, what a solution to classifying ourselves is, or if labels are necessary at all.

    Labels

    in Women

    Join us in a continuation of our series, "Who Are You?" as we discuss" Labels" and the effects they have on us. As women, we often allow labels to define who we are by becoming infused to it that we eventually find ourselves giving birth to it and thus becoming our identity. Tonight we will discuss the subtle trappings of "Labels" by looking beyound the packaging of ourselves, our relationships and even our walk with God.
    When the labels are removed, Who are you? When we can see beyond the packaging, Who Are You? When the contents of you are laid bare  and open in relationships,hurt, joys, pains, rejection,highs and lows, Who Are You? I know the packaging is presented flawless and the label reads well but beyond  the wrapping, Who Are You? Labels,How many of us are wearing them? Better yet, Labels,How many of us have become one.~

    Intimate Realness w/ Meka Rae and Renair: Labels & Roles in the LGBT community

    in Lifestyle

    Join Meka Rae and Renair as we discuss Labels and Roles in the LGBT Community. Do you dress tomboyish but consider yourself "feminine" but people tend to call you a "stud", "butch", "aggressive," and/or "soft stud?" Are you feminine but people assume you are heterosexual, bisexual, or you are a pillow princess? Are you heterosexual but people think you are a lesbian just by the way you dress? 


    Do labels play a huge part in how you are treated in a relationship? Are you expected to be the "man" of the house just because you dress more masculine? Are you feminine and expected to clean, cook, carry the baby, etc? 


    We will discuss all of the above and more when you join us on Monday, September the 8th at 10pm Eastern 


    We look forward to hearing your thoughts

    LABELS - We all use them, why do we need them.

    in Women

    "Labels put people in boxes, and those boxes are shaped like coffins." Because labeling as Butch or Femme means what?


    Some say "Labels don't matter"


    "If you are unlabeled, how do you defind yourself? 


    Your label is no-label, "Normal". If you are gay and say, "I don't believe in labels how do you introduce yourself.


    How could we do away with labels and include all the members of the community and our allies who support us, no matter how they identify themselves on the gender and gender-identity spectra?


    Our community has come a long way since we first marched over 40 years ago. More and more people in the United States and elsewhere are comfortable expressing pride in who they are, which is encouraging. However, daily headlines, both from far away in the world and closer to home, are a cruel reminder that many still face discrimination, ostracism, even threats of bodily harm and death, merely because of who they are and whom they love. Do labels help us as a community or do they just keep us in a box?

    Intimate Realness w. Meka Rae and Renair: Labels in the LGBT Community Pt. 2

    in LGBT

    Last month we discussed labels in the LGBT community. The conversation was so full that we knew had to continue the conversation with a part 2. Recently, Raven Simone was featured on Oprah's Where are they Now. 


    This is her take on labels"


    "I don't want to be labeled 'gay,'" Raven says. "I want to be labeled 'a human who loves humans.'"


    In fact, Raven tells Oprah that she rejects the notion of labels completely in all areas of her life. "I'm tired of being labeled," she says. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American; I'm an American."


    The link to portions of the episode and the write up is included below.


    How do you feel about that label gay, lesbian, stud, femme, pillow princess, etc? Do those labels define who you are as a human being? Are they acceptable in society? Do they affect your sex life or your relatioships? Lets talk about it!
