Dividing People

“We are much too inclined in these days to divide people into permanent categories, forgetting that a category only exists for its special purpose and must be forgotten as soon as that purpose is served.”

–Dorothy L. Sayers, “Are Women Human?”

I think we would all agree with this wisdom. So why do we keep boxing people into their “permanent categories? Because it’s easy? Because we’re lazy? Because we just don’t care to go deeper with people?
