Labelling

Last night, at a softball game I inquired of the woman next to me, "Is that Soandsos girlfriend?"

"I try not to put labels on other people's relationships."

In my head:
Really? So, if I'd asked you if that was a straight woman's husband, you would have said the same thing? I doubt it.

She'd have to be seriously PC to have done that. That right there is the kind of double standard crap that I don't like.

That's when great terms like fuck buddy totally lose their place in our lexicon. I just won't have it.

Why do lesbians like softball so much?

Seriously. I've always wondered that.

Some people are incapable of answering a simple question!

Hammer said...

I hate it when people act holier than thou. They should just say

"I don't know"

Bina said...

She sounds like freaking moron. How 'bout "yes", "No", "I have no idea, bitch". I mean, isn't that better than that other crap?

Dr. Zibbs...

I never said I liked it.

It's a requirement.

What on earth is a relationship if it is not a label?

Evil Twin's Wife said...

The good news here is that you know you don't want to invest in getting to know her any better! You can just avoid her psycho self from now on!

lesbo said...

I wish someone couldve heard me trying to decipher "Soandsos" LOL
Oopssss! My bad.

LSL said...

That lady needs to get laid.

Gina said...

Ridiculous. Those people drive me up a wall. It's too bad there are so many of them in the world. Why can't we all just get along? :)

we're doomed said...

Dear RLL, I bet you were surprised by that answer. We are all becoming too PC.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

Wanna be my fuck buddy? We can say "fuck you" to each other all day! Hehe!

Cap'n Ergo "XL" Jinglebollocks said...

I've been on a quest for an adjective/noun that will be less adolescent sounding than "girlfriend/boyfriend" and more respectful (but just as bouncy) as "love monkey."

Suggestions??

Dr. Zibbs must not be familiar with Jennie Finch: http://is.gd/zQsd

I watch the NCAA softball championship on ESPN every year. Lots of pretty hot girls play softball. Especially when the SoCal and Arizona teams are in the championship.

Oh and I don't like labels either. So I won't call that woman a moron. LOL ;-)

God, I despise the labeling crap! My husband and I work for the same company - generally, I introduce my husband as "this is Steve" and he says "this is Ena" and when people ask if we're married, he says, "we have a contractual arrangement." I love that about him.

Label Lady apparently has her head stuck up her butt.

Grant said...

Next time try "Isn't that Soandso's rug muncher?"

Dr Zibbs said...

Gothca.

Brad said...

Well at least she should you her true colors, saving you any wasted time trying to befreind her!
