    Not only do I not judge a book by it's cover,

    I appreciate when people don't judge me by my cover. I change my hair color often, so people have assumed that I'm punk... that I'm disrespectful and have a bad attitude... Just based on whatever odd color I happen to have my hair in that day, plus my tattoos. Other's have seen...

    Today, some guy judged me

    for being gay/pansexual. He didn't even try to get to know me, he just judged me for my sexuality. I stood up to him, and he blocked me. Again, some guy judged me for what I look like. So, I told him to F off and I blocked him. I can't stand people who judge other's like...

    I am hoping there is more to each one of us

    than just our looks. Yes, there are people absorbed by their looks. They usually try out as movies stars. There are some so into themselves that the rest of the world doesn't exist! It is a sound reasoning, don't just a book by its cover!

    It's a very simplistic mentality to have
