Judging someone by their physical appearance is inevitable. You tell if a person you don't know is rich, unhygienic, sporty, cool, fashionable, attractive solely on the way they present themselves. And to be completely honest, since the ability to rationalize and judge is an intrinsic human trait, there is little you can do about it.
That's on a secondary level. On a primary level, all of us are born to look a certain way: eye color, bone structure, metabolism, hair etc. Things we have less control over. Judging someone solely on basis of their BODY and not their hygiene, taste of dressing IS a little unfair. But if you observe closely, most people who are considered unattractive by a person is rarely due to their physical features but more so how they carry themselves, how they dress, how clean and maintained they keep themselves.
This is why I don't think no one is born ugly, there are just people who don't respect their physical selves. There are always clothes, colors, shapes, genres of fashion etc that suit you better and 'work' for you. The 'Good looking' game is merely a competition on who is most successful in achieving their niche when it comes to appearance. So yes, for me its fair to judge people by their appearance.
I take three showers a day, haircut every week, countless products and meticulously plan my clothes, apart from a healthy diet and lots of workout. The hell I go through in doing so, I can not expect to like someone else who doesn't at least give it a try. Appearance is never to be compromised upon, it leaves a strong first impression, and genuinely makes you feel good about yourself, other than being liked by people which is a trivial benefit for me but considerable nonetheless.
The whole 'inner beauty' is a very tertiary issue. I will only be marrying one person and befriending a few, so people's inner beauty doesn't necessarily interest me. But I will however, be very specific about the other million people and refuse to company one who looks like an unhealthy sack of meat and smells the same way.
So the bottom line is, being judged by your appearance is beyond our control. Even if people don't pay much consideration to it, choose to ignore it or not say anything about it...we must try our very best to be utmost presentable at all costs. Because the benefits of doing so for OUR personal wellbeing are endless, and being well received by the society is another free advantage. We must at least try our best, right?
Hope this answers your question :)
