Random Thoughts

It is all madness is it not. We are told not to judge a book by it's cover. But we do anyways. Men and women; gay or straight, westerners, Asians, or folks from the middle east. We all judge people by their appearance.

Is this a basic primal instinct based on a need to survive and reproduce?

I know there is no crime in judging people by their appearance. Though, if you act on your judgment we are in a gray zone. If you don't sit down besides someone in the park because he or she is a different color - you might be a racist. If you don't sit down beside someone because they are fat - what are you?

Fat people are victims of discrimination but for the most part, it is socially acceptable or at least tolerated. I think it is because people see, being overweight - as a choice.
