To Those Who Wrongfully Label – A Letter

Dear Label Maker,

 
Please resist the urge to label that which you don’t understand. I know that sometimes the world can be a confusing place and that it brings out the temptation to create definitions, but doing so can be harmful to others. If you want to understand what someone is going through, please have the decency to ask instead of jumping to conclusions.

 
Creating false labels is not only caustic to those who you label, but also causes misconceptions and stigmas. Stigmas are extremely dangerous because they put people into categories and set limits that no matter what, people cannot escape due to the fact that so many people put their faith in these false notions instead of faith in individuals to overcome their obstacles.

 
Mislabeling is also extremely selfish. While labeling someone may cause you relief because it leaves you feeling like you understand a situation, it causes the individual you are labeling unease and discomfort. It is hard enough struggling without having to deal with others making up their own conclusions based on what they hear, read, or simply make up in their mind.

 
Last but not least, mislabeling breeds ignorance. Being ignorant on a certain subject is never a positive thing; this goes for both the individual who labels and the person being labeled. Having false intelligence about something is not the same as being truly educated and having the wrong idea about something or someone, can lead to mistreatment – and incorrect treatment – of others.

 
I hope that if you are reading this, you realize the ramifications of labeling someone or something that you don’t truly understand. Mislabeling only leads to aggravation and hurt feelings. If you want to make sure you truly understand something and are not just creating your own definitions, please ask the person who is struggling in a kind way to explain what they are going through. I guarantee they will appreciate you coming to them first instead of going to others for information.

 

Thank You,

B.G.

October Photo Challenge – October 30th

So I know that this is more of a scary movie parody, but my favorite scary movie that’s in black in white is Young Frankenstein! The movie is so…freakin’…funny! I love it!

October Photo Challenge – October 28th

For favorite alien movie, I’m going to choose Starman. I don’t really think of him as an ‘alien’, but I guess he is since he comes from another planet! The movie has great actors (Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen) and is such a sweet movie! It also shows how typical humans are when it comes to treating others who we don’t know poorly. I love the relationship though between Jenny and Starman! I won’t give any details away, but I love the scene with the deer!

October Photo Challenge – October 27th

Today’s challenge is favorite scream queen. To be honest, I don’t really have one. However, I do like a few actresses that are considered scream queens (I just haven’t seen the movies that they’re considered scream queens for, if that makes sense). Here are some actresses that I like that have been called scream queens.

1.) Kate Beckinsale I did see Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing, but didn’t see her in Underworld. I’ve also seen her in non-horror/horror based movies like Serendipity and really like her!

2.) Katie Cassidy – I’ve seen Katie Cassidy as Ruby in Supernatural, Laurel Lance in Arrow (along with Laurel Lance in The Flash in a couple of episodes and Legends of Tomorrow in an episode) and really liked her. I especially loved her as Ruby in Supernatural! She was actually pretty freakin’ awesome!

October Photo Challenge – October 26th

For favorite funny – scary TV show, I’m picking a show that’s not really scary at all, but just plain hilarious. It’s a spoof on scary stuff though, so I think it counts! And the winner is…The Munsters!

October Photo Challenge – October 25th

I’m not 100% sure this counts, but I’m going to pick the legend of Hellhounds! As many of you know, I watch and love the show Supernatural and think the concept of Hellhounds (while scary) is pretty cool!

October Photo Challenge – October 24th

I had a favorite monster in mind, but then I realized it’s more of the scariest monster which is a prompt for later on in the challenge. Therefore, since I’m not quite sure what my favorite monster is, I’m going to go with a monster that I thought looked really cool! Djinns from Supernatural!
