Fascinating idea. I find terming separation as “violence” to be a harsh misuse of the word, though.
What I would call it is creating an “in-group, out-group” type of elitism. Creating a social construct of “us and them.”
Granted, it is usually not the conscious intention of people with such labels to create such a division between them and their fellow man. But could it be possible that this is, truly, what we are doing by accepting such labels that divide us as “other” from our fellow man?
Or is it necessary for us to feel commonality with a small group of humans. Is it not possible to feel connected with everyone because of differences?
Sticky. Discuss. What are your thoughts? Are there labels you choose to carry? Why?
