    Really? I think it's rather nice that people wouldn't jump to conclusions about a woman being a whore or a tramp or partially responsible for her rape because of how she is dressed.

    You think that makes a person an idiot?

    You're using a lot of qualifying words that I never did here, and alluding to concepts that were not mentioned in the poll in the first place.

    In any case, however; yes. Claiming that a person's clothing never plays a roll in how they are perceived by those around them, or in contributing to sexual profiling which can sometimes be dangerous, would strike me as being rather fundamentally out of touch with reality to say the least.

    Human nature simply isn't especially hard to puzzle out in this regard.

    It's NICE that a lot of people are not like you and do NOT judge a person based upon his/her clothing choice. If more people would feel this way, we would have much less problems, and women could be free to dress how they wanted instead of having to put up with douchebags who like to judge everyone based on stupid criteria.

    A) The poll never asked whether anyone "judged" other people based upon their clothing.

    B) If they're being honest about it, MOST human beings do judge other people based around their clothing choices. They do so with good reason, as a person's clothing is often deliberately selected to send certain messages to the outside world in the first place.

    This man, for instance, did not fall into the style of dress you see below by accident.



    He is using his attire as a means of making a deliberate socio-political statement.

    What statement is that Gathomas? Maybe he just likes tied-dye clothing.

    Unless he's a paid actor or a deliberate troll, I kind of doubt it. Frankly, why would I waste a single second of my time even stopping to consider such things where some random stranger on the street was concerned anyway?

    Why suffer fools where it can be avoided? If a person chooses to (almost literally) wear a giant sign around their necks outing themselves as a moron to everyone within a four block radius, I'm going to count that as a blessing, give them a wide berth in passing, and move on.

    I've seen those too, but I've seen some that still have plastic feet (at least on the soles - maybe it's not plastic but it looks like it). They're really cheapo though. They look like they'd get holes in them really easily. My son had a lot of hand-me-down clothes that I got from my aunt which was fantastic. I don't think I even bought one pair of feety pajamas because she gave me like 10 of them, the ones with the thick plastic feet. Some of them even had hoods. They were really good quality.

    I think he looks quite harmless. If everyone was the same, it would be a really boring world. I like diversity and variety in life.

    Why do you have such a bad attitude towards other people who are different from you? I don't understand this disdain you exhibit for others. It's really kind of sad because you seem to be quite intelligent, and I would think you could look past one's outward appearances.

    Why suffer fools if you don't have to? If a person chooses to (almost literally) wear a giant sign around their necks pointing themselves out as a moron to everyone within a four block radius, I'm going to count that as a blessing, give them a wide berth in passing, and move on.
    You can live your life like that, but you'll miss out on a lot of wonderful interesting people and experiences.

    I'm an introvert.

    I really don't "socialize" with people for the Hell of it. Outside of the group of friends I actually know and like to spend time with, my interactions with other people generally serve a concrete, predetermined purpose.

    i.e.

    "Do you know the time?"

    "What aisle is ___ on?"

    "Can I help you find something? (I'm only talking to you because my job requires it)"

    If I can avoid wasting my time dealing with someone that I can already tell I have a pretty strong probability of disagreeing with or disliking ahead of time, I'm going to do it. There's simply no logical reason why I should give them the time of day, as far as I'm concerned.
