Lately it has occurred to me repeatedly that how people identify themselves and others becomes a large part of their experience. And if reality for most of us consists largely of our experiences, then language that labels and identifies is really important. I try to keep those points in mind before I lay a label on myself or others. If I use labels that demean me or you, I am demeaned. If I use labels that elevate myself or you, then I am elevated.
