The "Don't Judge" Challenge

    Is anyone else getting tired of that so called "Don't Judge Challenge"? That misleading title is totally contradicting the message that this "challenge" is supposed to send. Instead of people who're expected to give examples that the outside beauty and the looks are not the only things that matter, they're just trying to show off how more good-looking are they compared to the ones who may have health problems and wear glasses or have acne, for example and often face the mocking of their schoolmates. So, as a conclusion, that "challenge" is actually a shallow and stupid way of people trying to boost their ego and receive compliments by comparing themselves to people who might suffer because of how they look. DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER, LOOK WHAT'S INSIDE!

    That's my opinion, I'd love to hear yours.

    I have no idea what you are talking about and am now feeling old and out of touch.

    Which isn't an issue for me, as long as you KEEP OFF MY GRASS!

    If you're referring to the tiresome demand to refrain from "being judgmental," I've never bought into the idea of suspending the capacity for thought and analysis all humans have, from wherever it came. It's just another way of urging people to be unthinking, mindless, and, usually, permissive, and to squander the mental gifts with which we are endowed, by our Creator or otherwise.

    If you don't like it, don't do it.

    And don't complain about it if you don't do it.

    I had to Google it. I recall the story of the model who lost Instagram followers after she posted more "real" photos of herself in less flattering situations. I recall thinking, should I applaud her bravery because instead of being a 10 with makeup, Photoshop and lighting, she's actually a barking 9.7 without?

    I'm going to file this hashtag nonsense alongside breathless local news exposés on the latest teen drug crazes.

    One of the purposes of life is to develop enough wisdom in order to render good judgment. Before doing so, one should carefully reflect if one has achieved sufficient wisdom so to do, however.

    Anyone who jumps onto this almost-satiricaly narcissistic fad under the guise of doing good while certain to cause the opposite result, I can't respect them as a person. The stench of hypocrisy is simply too great.

    Good point, Sulla. And, in order to develop that wisdom, one should question not just "authority," but everything and everyone.
