Hey hey just wanna poke you out for a sec I just read your use of the term "sapiosexual" But you also had a but of a tut tut at an anon for using the term "demisexual" and proceeded to say something about silly lables or something *insert thinking face*
Touché, Greyface. You are right and you caught me with my foot in my mouth.
Funny thing is, I don’t recall knowing what a sapiosexual was until this past year, and had not heard of a demisexual until that Ask. But it is a total 1:1 equivalency, so yes, you are right that I was being a hypocrite by saying I was one (sapiosexual) and then being dismissive of the need for the other term (demisexual).
Labels are an interesting idea. It’s weird because I personally want to distance myself from them, as a general rule of thumb, but another way to look at labels is that are just words or nouns, and we need words and nouns in society to convey ideas.
Saying you are sapiosexual, demisexual, dominant or submissive does convey a concept, which is good; my issues are I think that there is a wide range of grey and when it comes to matters of the heart. I always like to keep an open mind for exploring the unexplored, hence the desire to cast aside labels, even though it is obvious they serve a purpose at times.
