Are there any believers in “no labels” here? I know it can often be used by people who are unsure or uncomfortable of their sexuality. I’ve been going back and forth for a while about being bisexual or lesbian (have accepted being queer either way) and got the advice from someone of why try to label it. It kind of opened my eyes, but I wonder how other people in the community feel about this type of thinking/language?

You do you. My sense is that for women it is much more common and accepted. Men on the other hand....

No label is fine, but why not just use queer? Isn't that the catch-all for situations not clearly LGBT?

No label is a label. So I am in the pick your label camp.

My sister’s employer told her she needs to start coming into the office to work based on company policy. Whether an employee needs to come in is performance-based (low/avg performers must start coming in, high performers can continue to WFH). Sister is not comfortable working from office for health reasons & her productivity / work quality is not impacted by WFH, which she expressed to her employer. Employer is not budging.

Doing a closet clean out / reorg and realizing how much of my identity is tied to fashion and how my fancy clothes are now just collecting dust 🙄 I bought some new things during quarantine, but then what’s the point if I don’t go anywhere and won’t for a while? Trying to focus on long term styles. I wonder if fashion will be even more relaxed once we get back to office & clients? I used to enjoy dressing up, but now I just wear loungy WFH stuff. My legs will have to re-learn walking in heels 😭
