a label...a word given to someone based on who they are, what they like, or their appearance. someone who is in a punk band is a punk and therefore shouldn't even consider liking the girl that is more into sports. labeling is a way of making everyone fit into a group, but what it really does is leave everyone out.

Something teenagers often slap on themselves and others. Many teenagers have their entire worlds revolving around labels. Common American labels are: prep, goth, punk, stoner, skater, emo, slut, jock. People who label themselves are often insecure and feel they must belong to a group. They usually don't have enough of a mind of their own to be themselves and show originality so they leech off trends.
Honestly... what's the point?
"Goth": I wear all black and act depressed. I am not allowed to relate with "preps". They are the enemy.

"Prep": I constantly look polished and clean cut. I am a barbie doll for society. I am not allowed to relate with "goths". They are the enemy.

that thing that tells you what you're picking up.

Or those words we all call each other like geek, nerd, dork, emo, jock, scene, prep, goth, punk, druggie... and so on.

Look up the words scene, emo, or goth up on this website and what do you get? either

1. Those fags that go to concerts all the time, wear makeup, no matter if you're a boy or girl, look down on everyone, wear skinny jeans, act depressed when there is really nothing wrong with them or their life, and are not unique at all.

2. Someone who is depressed, not understood at all, hates life, wears black, sees life differently than everyone else. Wears tight shirts, very very tight shirts.

Now look up jock or prep and you get

1)A dumbass who looks down on everyone, has sex only with cheerleaders, beats everyone besides other jocks up.

2)a slut who is followed by a group of 2-4 other clones that all look the same, wears all pink all the time, has sex constantly and a IQ with 2 digits. Always blonde.

3) a person who shops at Hollister, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and other highly expensive stores.

4) a person who wears polo's tennis skirts or khakis. A person who gets everything because of their money. Insanely rich and flaunts it.

OR even look up geek, nerd, dork and you get

1) someone who is not very smart but enjoys playing video games, being on the internet, and avoiding the social world at all costs.

2) someone who is overly smart and made fun of in high school because of this, is normally covered in acne and very ugly.

Now do we all fit in these groups categories. Are we all called one of these by other people? yes most likely.

But what if you're like me which could be very very very likely.

You shop at Hollister, American Eagle, and Abercrombie and Fitch. But Hot Topic also. Someone who wears polo's and tight graphic tee's. Someone who's smart but plays sports and is good at them. Someone who goes to a concert most weekends? Someone who enjoys a myspace account. Who has a few selfy pics but tons with friends too. Someone who's hair is clean but choppy. That has 5 skinny jeans in various colors and 5 flare jeans too. Someone who has a few ratty converse and some flashy heels too. Someone that gets on the internet at least once a day but hangs with friends everyday too. Someone who has acne that every teenager has, but it's not overly hard to control. Who has friends by he labels of emo scene, goth, nerds, geeks, dorks, jocks, preps, and even druggies.

What label would you give me hmm?

because we all want to be in a label, one we like a choose. but because we all don't fit into just one label does that make us all posers? yes yes it does.

So there you go I'm a poser and so is every single one of you.
Sometimes I hate this website. but i like to see how everyone decides to look down on each other by typing something mean about other people on the internet and then saying that the people in that label are all douche bags that look down on other people. oh the irony.

Dictionary definition: a short word or phrase descriptive of a person, group, intellectual movement, etc.
Urban definition: Almost the same as the diciontary definition, but specified more toward a person or group's style or behavior. Examples would be: prep, goth, emo, punk, skater, scene, nerd, jock, etc. A common phrase relating to labels is "Labels are for soup cans," which pretty much means "Don't label people."

But according to the dictionary, you're supposed to label people. And that doesn't just mean "prep" or "emo." What most people don't realize is that everything from gender to religion falls under the category of "labels." So lesson one is, don't think all labels "are for soup cans."

Also, even the labels that are like "prep" or "emo," are they really that bad? I'd agree that they're bad if somebody were to say "I hate all preps," because obviously, not all preps are the same. But if somebody were to just say "I'm a prep," it's not doing any harm. Someone who willingly calls themself by a label must not think badly of labels. Even if somebody calls you a label that you aren't, it doesn't really matter what they think, as long as they don't judge you on it. So, lesson two is, it doesn't really matter what label you are, it just matters how you consider yourself.
-I've noticed you wear a lot of eyeliner and seem to be very interested in alternative bands. Are you emo?
-Um, ok.

a title given to someone who is blatently trying to fit in with one of the stereotypical high school "cliques". usually the label is justifiable though, since they are trying to fit in with other people who are obviously confused about who they really are.
Don't wanna be labeled? Try dressing and thinking for yourself.
