So, the prompt for today’s post is ‘Label’. Don’t judge me, but I actually thought of a scene from Doctor Who which connects with this debate. It is the scene in the episode ‘Doomsday’ (series 2) with the cybermen: ‘Cybermen will remove fear […] sex and class and colour and creed. You will become identical.’ … More Labels: Good or Bad?
