I have, and I disagree with the assessment.
Most Helpful Girl
I was walking with my friend ( he has sleeves and some of which depict naked women but very elegantly) and people turn and just look at him. They would give him dirty looks. He had long hair too. For a lot of older people they think it's a sign of the devil so they think he's evil or going to do something wrong.
I myself have been judged according to my hair and my piercings. There was an older man that was always really nice to me and would always give me a smile until I got facial piercings he would down upon me. I did something that was a little wrong I guess. I had been to a church a few times before and they would all stare at me because I colored my hair and had facial piercings. Well one time I went, just to bug them, I painted my nails black and wore all black. The preacher started talking about satin and kept looking right at me. I thought it was quite funny. They are "christians" and are supposed to be unbiased and accept anyone.
I haven't really had someone tell me to my face what they think of me but I've watched people be judged and been judged myself from a distant. People judge on appearance alone which is completely absurd.
