When you're younger...you very much look just on the outside of a person. If they don't look a certain way or whatever, then you don't want to get to know them further than that. I wasn't popular when I was in school, was overweight even then (not as much as I am now), but people used to judge me on the way that I looked. Some people still do...but I'm more than my weight. I would still be the same person whether I was fat or thin. So I try not to judge people by the way they look. If anyone wants to have tattoos, piercings, mohawks, etc etc...then they should be able to do that without other people judging them. We are all doing our own thing on this journey. So give everyone a chance...

I concur...In todays world we are all different and those differences need to be respected.

You are right. I've also always avoided to come up with a first impression over someone just because of how he/she looks like. But on the other side, I am almost constantly being judged by my appearance (I look quite younger) and as a result, no one takes me seriously or in the other case, everyone expects me to behave immature. I wish more people was looking the inside of the others before the outside.
