Gluten-Free Blogger – Celiac Awareness Month

Johnna Perry from InJohnnasKitchen.com Says We Shouldn’t Be So Concerned With Labeling Others – Gluten-Free Living.

As defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Label –

verb

: to put a word or name on something to describe or identify it : to attach a label to (something)

: to name or describe (someone or something) in a specified way : to give a label to (someone or something)

Is it necessary to use a label to describe someone who cannot ingest gluten? If you have gluten intolerance, it is less serious than someone who has celiac disease?

When we hear that someone has cancer * we do not immediately think ‘Oh, what kind of cancer? If it is ……. (?) cancer, then it can’t be too serious.’

*Please note that I am in no way comparing or belittling diseases or illnesses by this example.

However, when someone says ‘I cannot eat gluten.’  Most often, people think that they are either following the latest fad diet, or that it cannot be too serious, and if they do in fact ingest a LITTLE gluten, then they’ll be fine.

How do you feel about not being able to ingest gluten? Do you attach a label to others, or do they perhaps attach one to you?
