And for music, movies, comic books/graphic novels, weapons, etc. Seriously, this phrase is bullshit. We need labels, it is part of the marketing industry. Every piece of clothing you own, every cd, or everything you own (in general) is made by somebody. It was made to sell to you. The labels are there to make it easier to sell stuff. For example, you wouldn't sell a video game to an amish person would you? no, that is not their intended audience. Their intended audience are "gamers." Gamers is a label.

The phrase "Labels are for soup cans" is bullshit.
