float above the labels

The Journey to Self Improvement blog had a beautiful post recently in which the author laments labels and tries to explain what it feels like to be in the middle.  I love the ending:

Now, I’m not saying I want to start taking hormones and packing my pants or anything, but I often just like feeling masculine. Maybe this is just another treat in my grab bag of issues. For some reason, I don’t want to be defined as a woman or man or a heterosexual or lesbian. I just want to be able to float above the labels and, at the same time, still be a sexual being.

I’m never really satisfied with what I am at any given moment.

The whole thing is worth reading.  Go to it.
