I am decidedly (an unabashedly) independent. Thank you for restating this for me.

I merely caution you against conflating loaded terms; a group might be a group to you, but some of us have distinct preferences regarding what we are called, and it is kind to respect those differences.
You will need to clarify for me how I have conflated these terms. I listed them individually as to specifically avoid conflating the terms. Am I missing a piece of this semantic argument you are making?
Me: male, 43, straight, non-hierarchical, independent
