I just had to chuckle when I saw your alias next to "It's a natural reaction..."

Wearing sunglasses indoors is the equivalent of using an umbrella indoors. Those people need a good smack upside the back of their heads.

By the way Ryulightorb, in case you didn't make the connection with my earlier posts about slut walks - the entire point of the slut walk is that women should be able to wear fashionable clothing whether that is short skirts or other "slutty" clothing and that if they are raped the rapist should not get away with saying "she asked for it because of what she was wearing." Anyone should be able to wear anything they want and not get assaulted because of what they wear.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SlutWalk

The idea extends to Jews not being attacked because they're recognized by their clothing http://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2016/01/14/463010103/after-attack-an-uproar-over-a-call-for-french-jews-to-quit-wearing-yarmulkes , people not being assaulted for wearing head wraps such as turbans and being mistaken for followers of islam http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/toronto-man-attacked-taunted-for-wearing-turban-in-quebec-city-1.2841755 , a cross-dresser attacked for dressing the way they choose. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/queens/exclusive-crossdressing-queens-man-brutally-attacked-article-1.2450437

Americans used to be attacked and mugged for their blue jeans in the Soviet Union: http://www.heddels.com/2014/09/soviet-denim-smuggling-history-jeans-behind-iron-curtain/

Because sadly that's the world we live in. What you wear is "supposed" to define you or express you. However, how some people interpret your clothing can be far from the truth. I used to be judged all the time for wearing a couple of shirts from my favorite metal bands. People thought I was goth and anti-social (because apparently there is no other reason to wear a band shirt) when really I only wore it because I like the band. At the end of the day just wear whatever the hell you want. Live this life to please yourself, not others.

Because people are herd animals and they need to know where you fit on their pecking order. It tends to blow their minds when they find out that's all horseshit, and they have to readjust their world view to completely exclude that information.

We cannot help but to formulate opinions and preconceptions based on what people wear. Clothing is frank, and we aren't mind-readers. We are adapted to calculate visual cues.

But to judge someone solely on first impressions is foolish imo

Sometimes people look ridiculous. It's okay to have an opinion like that. Not everyone has to like what you wear. You can still whatever you like though because no one can actually hold you back.

You dress for the occasion. Being out of line sends a clear message the occasion is not important to you or you are not properly socialized, in which case you just shouldn't be there.

If you're out shopping or whatever, people will snicker but they won't actually care. At school and work or other organized events, it's a different story.

Formulating opinions is fine but you need to be logical about it judging someone based on first impressions alone is the opposite of logical.

I have seen some people and thought my god that guy looks like a dickhead but I never say it or treat them like they are one because to do so would be illogical as I don't have enough Data to judge them on.

Is it that hard to be logical about it....I never can understand how people can judge based on first impression alone
