Labels offer only minute levels of understanding of much bigger and infinitely more complex pictures.

Labels lead to misunderstanding, to false assumptions, to thinking that we know something when it’s highly likely that we do not, to assuming that one label implies the same or similar things across the board, when in fact, there is most definitly a wide range of variety within all which is labeled the same on the surface.
