  •  I'm thinking although there may be definition, (9+ / 0-)

    it may not be necessary to be limited by that definition.  As humans we need to organize and categorize to retain the vast amounts of information we are exposed to.

    My partner will tell me that he had a conversation with Bob today.  I must always say "Which Bob?", before I can recall any other information about Bob.

    I guess what I am saying is that everyone is defined to some extent, I am defined by the fine family that runs the local Chinese restaurant as "26 Oak" which was where I lived when I first started ordering from them.

    I don't look at definition as inherently bad. It is needful to some extent.  What is bad, to me, is the stereotyping we may apply to the person because of the definition.
