This is a powerful short film about how we define ourselves, as well as how other define us, by the labels that choose us and those that we choose. The message I found here was actually quite different than one of bullying and oppression from others.
I was challenged to stop identifying as a Gay "__________". My sexual orientation is certainly something I am not ashamed of, or am I? If I was completely at peace with it, would it factor in so greatly in my life or would it eventually become assimilated into all the other facets that make up the complete individual that I am and am becoming in life?
Much more thinking about this message is needed and I hope to share my thoughts here on this later, but I am off to work. Thanks to http://secretguystuff.wordpress.com/ for sharing this video with me. If you haven't checked out his blog yet, you need to. It is a must see for any guy who has any questions about being a guy in this world we live in. Definitely check out his articles and the great surveys. Go ahead and follow him on Twitter too! He will make your day with some of his thoughts, ideas and questions. Later all!
