Do we as a society over label each other? Think about it for a moment please. If you're really good looking or have a certain sex appeal you're considered "Hot". Where as someone that tends to be rather average or under average with brains, they are a "Geek". We as society associate personalities with labels. We automatically assume that a woman with blond hair is a "Blond" and therefore an airhead and an easy mark for sex. Most men I know assume that she is also better at sex because of course she has blond hair and is therefore hotter then others. Redheads have a fiery disposition. And so on. We label each other in regards to looks, age, height, body build and even self confidence. We label people simply based upon where they come from in this world too. We tend to lump people together and place certain behaviors on them simply based on what country they were grew up in. Or what religion they believe in. So many labels. In our workplaces; sales men are known as being perverts with fast hands and small brains. Secretaries are either hot to trot or cold as ice, usually depending on age and looks. Executives are seen my some as being over controlling and cold. Okay some women think executives and think power and it?s a turn on. Then there are Doctors and nurses, okay that one depends on if you're facing a needle or not sometimes. For every job that there is there is a mind set of how they should look and behave. There is a label. But what we don't realize is how hurtful these labels can be towards others. First of all in most cases the labels are completely wrong. Some of the most intelligent women I know of have blond hair and blue eyes. I've met some extremely good looking men and women there were some of the most boring people going. As for the cultural labels, well each country consists of many individual that are as unique as you and I are. As for work related labels, again the same rule applies. Everyone is simply unique and special and while there are certain characteristics of a job they don't always mean that we behave in the same ways for the same jobs. But one of the most hurtful labels, are those that we place upon children and adults with physical and mental challenges. I watched a TV show today in which a 14 year old girl was inspired to do up a documentary of a day in the life with her twin brother who was mentally challenged. So often we assume the worst and treat people like this with such disrespect and malice. In her movie she showed the good sides of life with her brother. How he was pure joy. And then she showed the hard times, where his behavior made it difficult to deal with normal social situations. Her one main thought was; why people couldn't just take the time to get to know him rather then to label him a "retard" and to judge him. It's a very good point really. Instead of labeling everyone why not take the time to simply get to know them and to see what they really are like. We can never get away from labeling each other but at least if we try we might just discover some incredible facts about people that we never knew existed or facts about those we know barely that might surpise us. And we might just discover a new friend or better yet, the love of our life. Why not stop labeling and start looking with open eyes and minds.

It is so nice to see a well thought out and written blog, it was a pleasure to read. I wanted to say very good and from a fellow Canadian but that is a label. Besides Canada is made up of people from all over the world and who is to say your actually Canadian. Keep up the good work regardless

Labels are ridiculous but regrettably they are always used. We use generalisations to talk about nations and people in certain roles as you say. There are good and bad in all and we should not label a whole group because of the actions of a few. You raise lots of valid points here Lot of thought gone into this

MA, great blog. The thing about airhead blondes? The funny thing is that a lot of blondes are NOT natural blondes.........so is it the act of pouring the peroxide on their heads that make them airheads? I've always wondered about that.
