Guys I watch anime.
That makes me a weaboo.
A lot of people actually assume I speak Spanish or German though, oddly enough. I'll either reply "no habla Español" (hell, I'm not even sure if that's right), or "Mein Deutsch ist sehr schlecht" (because it's true, unfortunately). I haven't ran into many people who speak German though, apart from the old Austrian lady in our apartment complex. She's nice. She makes us lots of potato dumplings and Brötchen. ^__^
*cough* Anyway, I don't really remember the last time someone was prejudice against me. Maybe I just don't pay attention anymore? Probably. When I was a kid though, I was always bullied for being quiet, poor, studious, a bookworm, for being Mormon, and for gaming. Lol, we were all so stupid in grade school. Good times.
Nowadays I really couldn't care less what people think about me. It's not like I exist for someone's entertainment or approval. :l
In the words of a very wise and intelligent boy,
"WATEVA, WATEVA, I do what I WANT."
"Fire all you like -- I'll just be taking attendance."
All the time. However, I'm not ashamed of it. Prejudice is not something to 'work on'. It's human nature to judge. It's encrypted in our brain. You can't fix it, because it's not a problem.
However, it's HOW you use it that ends up being an issue.
Of course, I think everyone has been judged.
As for me, I consider myself a pretty accepting person. I actually don't care unless you're a decent person.
The truth is, we all care what people think, and it's important to an extent. However, it's a waste of time if you're too focused on what others think instead of what you think of yourself.
I also forgot to mention a few things. It's actually quite acceptable to judge. I judge girls who are promiscuous and loose, who are harlots and manipulate for self gain or attention.
I've had a few times where people were prejudice against me. I'm like 99.9% Hispanic. About half of that is Mexican and like 1 percent is irish? Anyway so I look white because of my Spanish roots. So if I go to a Mexican restaurant people look at me like "Wdf is this white girl doing here?" Or if i'm with my family (who LOOK hispanic unlike me) They assume i'm not even related to them >.>
Another thing also happened recently when I went to my sisters America's Got Talent audition. We were with her bfs family and my bf tagged along (he's white) And we all got in the elevator at the hotel and a white family walked by and stared at us. We told them there was room for more but they just stared at us like we were freaks.
The next day we went to the state capital and looked around inside. A tour guide lady was talking to us and my bf told her how the security at AGT threw his knife away and she said "Oh! When you said knife I thought you were all some sort of gang!" She she laughed. Really lady? It's Texas, EVERYONE carries a knife.
Well I think all that was more racist o___O Same thing I guess. It's still not cool to judge people when you see them. There is more to someone besides looks.
Everyone judges to an extent, but really, the "she looks one way so she must be one way" thing doesn't jive. Those are some nice fallacies you got going there.
Edit: Nice avatar change. I was going to ask why you looked at women and judged them for dressing a certain way when you clearly have a well-endowed woman in your signature (or did, unless you decide to change that, too.)

I want to again point out the hilarity and hypocrisy of the fact you have a woman showing an ample amount of cleavage in your signature ... for what reason? probably because you enjoy how it looks.
However ... you dismiss women who dress this way as "harlots" so ... you obviously like "harlots" dress, but you also dislike them. I'm no Freud, but ... lol.
It may come as a revolutionary concept to you, but some women dress a certain way because they like it. Obviously if all you've been dating are women who dress this way ... what would that say about you?Originally Posted by Jradow
I'm being kind and engaging you because I want to give you the benefit of the doubt. You're welcome.

Making assumptions, providing opinions with no real arguments behind them, and attacking those offering differing opinions ^^ I'm starting to think this isn't worth my time to argue, at least with you :3
Jradow seems to think that the way a woman dresses equates to a profession she must have. So, effectively, he's stating that women who dress a certain revealing way, by his own standards, might be prostitutes or promiscuous women. True, some of them might be, but why does this bother him so?
... I wonder where you spend most of your time, Jradow.

Either way, someday your interactions with women are going to have to go far beyond your mother, your grandmother, and that one female camp counselor who molested you when you were twelve.

Having a birthmark on your face is quite interesting, because you filter out a lot of people who aren't scared to talk to people with abnormal appearances.
Having a birthmark isn't TOTALLY abnormal, but it shoos people off sometimes.
Judging people is a human instinct, we do it naturally. Do I think that's an excuse? No. Do I think its a bad thing? No.
Just because I look at someone and I initially say: "That person looks like a (insert here)." Doesn't mean I have to treat them based on my judgement. I treat them based on their actions.
Yeah, 6'3", broad shouldered with a thuggish appearance, I cop prejudice all the time. Most assume I'm a violent person, but I actually advocate peaceful solutions where possible. Some also underestimate my intellect based on one of my eye brows being a little lower from a past incident - that can come in handy on occasion though, it leads to some easier RL trolling. Apply for jobs, and most seem intimidated by me, but those in heavier industries like construction and security often want me without even doing a proper interview. Those who get to know me often described me along the lines of 'gentle giant'. I generally am gentle and laid back, but it's true my figure allows me to easily deal out and take damage if required, which definitely has come in handy a fair few times.
Am I prejudiced? Yeah. Lock me in a room with a Neo-Nazi and there will be problems. Plus people thinking the worst about me means I greatly prefer the company of others who suffer crap from others often, be they someone associated with criminals despite being legit, heavy body mod spotters, users of drugs that don't make the user completely nuts, ex-cons who strike me as making the effort to change, homeless people I talk to on my site etc. Many of them are great people and some have some bloody good stories.
