Labels be damned?

It seems that there are variations on who is inside that mythic "umbrella". Some include drag queens but then Ru Paul himself will tell you he is not trans. Then out of curiosity, I research different websites only to see different answers which shows me just how much varied opinion there is. One young male who suprisingly identifies as a "crossdresser" explains on his site very emphatically why he is not trans.

I will increasingly stay out of those waters because it serves no purpose other than to get some people riled. But it does show me just how much the definitions matter to us. When I was young we basically had two but today we talk about gender non-conforming, non-binary, gender queer, etc because younger people insist on more flexibility in defining themselves.

I insist however that no matter who you think you are, that you reflect and make the necessary adjustments which are right for you and serve to elevate both your internal peace and your dignity without which it could mean we still have work to do on ourselves.

But if both are there, then labels be damned.
