I know this is bad because I don’t have kids, but I judge some things people do with their kids. For example, I occasionally see people pushing babies in strollers across super busy streets and I freak out because those areas are unsafe for anyone to be crossing.

Because I am too busy living my own life, and making my own choices, I don’t feel I have enough time to bother judging others.

When I see someone doing something, even if it is totally the opposite of what I would do, I can honestly say that nothing crosses my mind. For example, I couldn’t care less if a person eats McDonald’s when I prefer to eat fresh food — it says nothing about their overall health, weight, their personality, etc., because it’s just one food, it is just one choice amongst a plethora of other choices they’ve made during their day. 

When it comes to language and speaking Standard American English, anyone who has ever taken basic linguistics knows that it is the prestige dialect, and is in no way “more correct” than other ways of speaking. Plus, knowledge and use of Standard American English is based larged on education, which has everything to do with socioeconomic status. What is the point of judging based on language when there is no way of speaking that is technically wrong?

As for clothing, personal hygeine, and things of that nature, I still don’t care. Who has the time to go and make assumptions about people based on what they wear or don’t wear, how much makeup they have put on or not, etc.? 

I just don’t get the whole judgemental attitude. You can dislike something or disagree with something and not judge people.

@elle_z:  It kinda sounds like you’re judging judgemental people perhaps? Undecided

the attire of some of the people in the office.  Some of it is not appropriate at all, but absolutely nothing is done about.  Yes, we have a policy…one supervisor for example, always brings out the low cut tops on meeting days… and everyone else does notcie, how could you not?

Can’t wait for our year end party on Friday afternoon, it will get really interesting.

This is an old thread, I know, but I just found and read it tonight. Some of these responses have just made me sick, and and also made me damn glad that I don’t know some of you people in real life. This thread reinforces something I already knew to be the truth: there are lots of petty people out there who are scanning me and judging me based on my appearance alone. The good news is that I don’t care to have anyone that superficial involved in my life, but it’s still jarring to see people admit to that kind of superficiality so freely. Don’t try to make yourself look better by saying “Well, I don’t really judge the small amount of fat people who actually have medical problems – just the ones who overeat”. That’s still an asshole POV. Why do you care what someone else’s body looks like? This type of judgment is what triggers eating disorders in people. Trust me, I’ve struggled with an eating disorder myself.

If you want to judge people by their negative actions, by all means, go ahead. We all do it. We all have different values and different character attributes we strive for – but to sneer at another human being for being overweight, not having a stellar sense of fashion and/or not being able to afford an amazing wardrobe, or generally not conforming to some kind of aesthetic ideal is the mark of a closed mind and some pretty fucked up priorities, IMO. So yeah, I judge people who think like that.

You will judge some people and others will judge you. As long as you’re happy with who you are and the life you live, don’t worry about what everyone else thinks.

I hate when people compare tragedies, illnesses, loses, etc.

I judge people who post every damn thing they do and every damn picture of themselves on Facebook.  Seriously, I really don’t care that you just took a $&!^

@les105:  The man at the ticket counter snubbed you too, although he was less obvious about it. Responding in English to a tourist speaking French is a classic diss.Wink

Smokers. If I walk by one of their death clouds I will usually loudly cough and say something like “ugh smells disgusting”. I just don’t understand how people, especially young people, will take up such a filthy stupid unhealthy habit when it’s common knowledge how terrible it is for you. Not to mention nasty and gross!
