I Get Judged For My Looks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 848 People

    I am a person of the gothic persuasion.

    What does that mean. It means that I always wear black. I love the night time. And I am fond of horror films. My favorite supernatural creature is the vampire. People often judge me by my exterior appearance. A person all decked out on black wearing a shiny necklace or some sort...

    I don't need people to be constantly judging me.

    I look into the mirror and I see every single one of my flaws. I don't meet my own criteria... I don't need for anyone to point out my flaws because I see them all. I know I need to loose weight. I'm too tall. My hair isn't the right shade. My skin is too light. My hands are too...

    I cut my hair boy-short

    and am a tomboy, so people have either mistaken me for a boy or thought I was a lesbian (though in that case they got me confused with an actual lesbian at school who also dressed tomboyish)

    I Do

    We all still live in a world that judges on looks. It is a shame, but it is what it is. I have a deep past of being called ugly, and it is hard to see myself as anything else. I accept who I am, but in no way do I think I am good looking.

    When I see babies and small children,

    I can't help but smile and wave, because they're just so adorable... But then their parents see me and they look horrified. I mean, come on... I'm the least of your worries when it comes you your kid's safety.

    I Look Like A Neanderthal

    and I know it. If I don't remember to put on my 'game face' I look like an angry gargoyle. I have long hair and a beard, also.

    It's sad to say, but we

    as humans judge others and make too many rules around appearance. For example, you can only be a Victoria Secret model if you weigh so much. I was absolutely appalled when a Victoria secret commercial came on and all the models just had this "I know you want me" look on their...

    They Called Me A Dyke..

    Because I never let my hair down or wore make up. I wear jeans 90% percent of the time. But reall I was bashful and my brothers yeased ke relentlessly about looking girly. Most of self confidence issues come from them.
