The other day I read a post on Facebook and people where judging celebrities for wearing clothing associated with alternative bands. This isn't the only thing I've seen on groups judging people who don't want to be heavily modified. As far as I feel on the situation people can dress and how look how they want and not people slate them like there something on there shoe. It angers me to feel that not even alternative people can live in peace with others due to crappy remarks about appearance.

I wear "normal" clothes and don't feel I've gone against what I believe in, These people who judge others wonder then why people don't give them a chance. Makes my blood boil, my friends children have more manners.

What are your thoughts on this? do you feel its fair to judge people when you don't know them or what their like? or is it a case they need to learn to sort there attitudes out?Yell

That type of attitude seems pretty typical of media today! Miserable people project miserable crap, and it is sad to me.
The great thing is, you don't get much of that super judgement around this site! Try not to let it taint your beautiful heart.

Everyone has something to say about the Mona Lisa until you're standing in front of it speechless.

Modified people are people, and thus subject to the same foibles and failings as any human.

Modification as a choice is often associated with being an outsider, and it isn't uncommon for people to hold hostile attitudes toward symbols of a mainstream people may feel rejected by.

I think this has been complicated in recent years due to the fact that some modifications and alternative culture has been adopted by much of the mainstream.
It can feel like a little bit of our sacred space has been taken or usurped.
It also means that people with more mainstream attitudes regards conformity and fashion may identify or be identified as part of the modified community.

These are all issues individuals need to work through as part of their own journey.
With growth we learn to accept, first with ourselves, then all others, and finally to acknowledge they are one.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Nietzsche

I think it doesn't matter who is judging others or what the reason for the judgement is. It's a form of prejudice and ignorance.

As Oakbear said, it's quite common among all people. The solution is to let go of one's arrogance and admit that you don't know everything. Once you've done that, you'll automatically be open to new ideas, cultures, and people without judgement. You'll be asking yourself, "What's that all about?" instead of telling yourself, "I know what that's all about."

Sometimes I wonder if I can say anything in less than a hundred words.
