Is it okay to judge people according to their physical Appearance ?

Many people judge others without knowing anything about them. They only judge them according to their physical Appearance . It's really wrong deed to do so. Let's get to know them in order to know who they are. We can not know anybody till we get to know them. We should interact with them. It's really a huge mistake to juge and gossip about them.
Do we choose to deal with people according to their physical Appearance ?.

  • Jun 30 2012: Is it wrong to gossip or be mean? Yes.

    Wrong to judge? Not necessarily.

    All animals judge each other. We judge each other when we are looking for potential mates, or assessing threats. Thats just the way it works.

    I might have wished that that super-model would've spent the time to get to know me better but …

    I don't worry about it. Her private judgements of me are none of my business.
    And, I would be wrong to demand that she change them.
