Step Outta D Box!

I really hate being boxed in, or when people try to put me in a box!, you know; people look at you and feel they've figured you out, when they really don't have a clue, and also those numerous  little boxes you're asked to tick when you're filling out forms; what does my ethnicity, sexuality or religion got to do with anything or anybody? If the form is for a job application I normally think, "what bearing does this have on my ability to do this job?" the people in the know claim that employers use this information to find out which partcular demographics are searching for jobs, my question still remains, how is this relevant? If it's a medical form my question is what bearing does my ethnicity, sexuality and religion have on the Dr's diagnosis etc, etc I could go on all day but I'll leave it at that!

Whichever way you look at it, it's still a means of pigeon hole-ing and the free spirit in me just doesn't like it!.
