The Venture Capitalist Who Is Both a Man and a Woman
Jessi Hempel

I think everyone should be whoever they want to be. But I just don’t understand why we have to be so obsessed with labeling and categorizing every genre of human being.

Pretty soon we’ll all have our own category, since the reality is that every human being falls somewhere on a spectrum of more traits than our brains can fathom.

We’re animals, evolved from forest-dwellers, where basic categorization undoubtedly served some purpose. It’s time we moved past that and stopped focusing so heavily on creating a label for every type of person. Today’s labels become tomorrow’s words of oppression. When we start recognizing every person as a piece of the sum total of humanity maybe we can move past that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
