-Do you ever make negative judgements towards people based on things like clothing, accessories, and styles?
Yes - an absence of piercings & tats; preppy clothing, mundane haircuts etc tends to make me avoid people. I know my kind. There’s a “look” - this doesn’t mean just extreme body art, it can be as simple as black jeans, a plain black t-shirt and Docs, but there’s definitely a “look”. If you don’t have it, it shows.
Actually, there are two looks, I guess. “RP geek” is a different look from Goth/Alternative, but distinct too.
Do you feel that this is a bad thing or something that serves a purpose?
It serves an an instant “one of us” filter. I’ll speak to mundanes at parties and stuff, but I don’t go out looking for their company, IYKWIM.
-*If you do admit to doing this, where do you draw the line? What separates you from an obnoxious snob?
Like I said, I can be incredibly social with mundanes if I have to be. I don’t think I’m a snob - my people come from all walks of life. I do prefer to hang with my own subcultures, though. Limited hours in the day etc.
