"So many now, I can’t even see the person underneath." *breaths out slowly* It is taking me a lot of will to try not to scream at these horrible people and jacked up world......let's hope I don't lose my mind over my anger

Also I do read the description and I love what they say because it kinda tells me a little back story behind the picture

Okay serious talk why do humans bully each other we all should know right from wrong and I wish that people would stop labeling each other.We all know right from wrong and we all know better than to treat others like a piece of trash at least I would hope we all were taught this.Seriously though this world is already jacked up we don't need to jack it up more with bulling,and labeling each other.If you have phased this know that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL/HANDSOME INSIDE and OUT, no one can tell you different I hope that you will have the power to be fearless.

Everyone will be labeled at some point in life. Do you expect all 7 billion people on the planet to know the true you?

No, so they rely on simple labels, until they get to know the actual you.

I find this so interesting, especially when looking over her you can see that quite a lot of the words contradict each other- "Tall" and "short", "white and "black". As if everyone sees something different and feels the need to comment on it. It can really get you down when people tear into all aspects of you- shown in her pose and how the words almost consume her, there isn't a space bare. Really love you work so thank you for that, it says a lot, keep it up =)

I get the point of this, but the message just kind of falls flat for me.  There isn't anything under all of someone's labels.  
Any quality that underneath would also soon be labeled and categorized; it's just how people are.  People are the masks they where!

It's just what we are. It's easier for us, humans, to label people in things. It comes from a place of good, to make our life easier... yet it does so much harm...

What about  bi/a/transexual, ADHD and autistic? Or are those cool?

The cool ones are the most dangerous.

so autistic is a label? 
Reply
:iconmakingfunofstuff:
I don't know. Is short hair a label? Is girl a label? We can't pick and choose. 

It seems like the real message is not to put yourself in a box unless it's custom made by yourself... It's all stereotypes and judging until it's time to fill out the "100 questions about me" tags or meticulously edit your deviantArt bio. Real life isn't so easy censor.

you forgot to put a comma after "easy" in the last sentence ^^
and autistic is a fact, having short hair is a fact, being a girl is a fact, not labels. Being labeled weak at Baseball because you are a girl is a label but being a girl aint a label, its an amazing fact ^^ Ene (Smile) [V7]

I agree, that's why this picture is kinda dumb really.
People say they don't want to be victims. They aren't. Until they take offense at things on purpose.

Interesting comment. Funny how I never said that people who are labeled are victims. Merely stating that because everything is covered in labels it's hard to see who someone truly is because labels are easier to digest. I think your own personal preference or angst has brought you to the conclusion you stated, however it's not the intended one based on the image and caption provided. But why pay attention and consider that? (:

You are free to call people angsty to shut them down, when they disagree with a picture about labels. This shows where the priorities lie. With being dramatic and politically hip. This is as deep as a puddle. I'm sorry but it's true.

mcptato Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2016
What I don't understand is why does this have to be dramatic or politically hip? Or even deep? I stated the meaning of this piece in the caption. It's pretty straightforward. I draw and upload a new doodle every day I don't and shouldn't be expected to be deep every time. It's not my fault that people may think it's deep or not deep. But to say that this piece is bad because it isn't deep is kind of irrelevant and redundant as it's not suppose to be. Why I said you seem angsty is because you appear to be upset that it isn't deep when I never had the intention of it being so. Not meant to be a shut down just an observation trying to figure out why you appear to think that what you said is in disagreement with me and my intent as the artist, and then why the lack of depth makes it "bad". It's just very interesting logic.

It's very well drawn.

But I still wonder why the artist purposely doesn't put labels that are politically popular, it makes me wonder about the real intent.

That is so accurate...
We see most are the negative labels covering up the positive ones.

I loved this piece of art. I see on it an representantion of that none of us know ourselves, that we don't exist in fact. We are composed of ideas and characteristics that we have of ourselves and that people make os us, but none of them are represent the truth, they're just opinions, interpretations that can be contraditory with eachother, just like it is shown  in the picture, wich has, for example, black and white, short and tall, pretty and ugly, etc.. And also these interpretations change along the time because we are mutative, we're not eternal. "The name that can be named is not the eternal name" - Lao Zi.

P.S: sorry if I comited any english mistakes.
