Karen Edmisten has very kindly posted her excellent article on the subject, "Label Me Schizophrenic," which first appeared in Home Education Magazine.

There were some good comments on the subject in yesterday’s post, too, including this from Beth:

What I have found very frustrating over the years, both in daily life
and on the internet, is the divisiveness and judgmental behavior that
are so often created — either deliberately or inadvertently — by
subscribing to specific labels. It is very important, I have found, not
to underestimate a label’s ability to shut people out, while at the
same time locking others in.
