Well, sure it is.  That's partly why the FE definition that Vox wrote is limited in scope - a lot of what people say is "required" for Trads are behavioral things that should be dealt with by priests in the pulpit and in the Confessional - such as proper attire for Mass, owning a TV, etc.

The more disturbing thing is that oftentimes these labels don't restrict themselves to saying you're a bad "Trad" or whatnot, but they imply (or outright state in the case of Steve's description of a "Neo-Trad") that you're heretical or schismatic in some way which is a pretty damning charge and more than mean-spirited.

So, I agree there's a huge negative aspect to labels as well.
