Why is it that society outcasts people who choose to have a different appearance?

I really want to know what makes me such a bad person for stretching my earlobes, getting tattoos, and getting other piercings. Somebody justify outcasting me for this. I want an intellectual argument, not just, "cuz yer ugly, 'MURICA".


This isn't an issue of me being afraid of what people think, because quite frankly, I don't give a d*** what people think. Its more an issue of I want justification for why people are a**holes to me. But thank you for the support regardless.

    It doesn't make you a bad person or an outcast. You might be "outcasting" yourself with your attitude.

    why don't you ask the people who are judging you? I can promise that you'll get a ton of different reasons.

    I think more people are fine with this that you think. Stop worrying what other's think....or don't think....about you. Concentrate on how you feel about yourself and the way you look. If you're happy with it, then that's all that's important.

    That`s society..Don`t let that disturb you life is too precious you lived once. People get outcast for they heights,gender,age,race,nationality,style,body shape and more. You get my point. I will give a secret that will solved your problem. Each time a person is pointing a finger at you there`s two people who are pointing fingers back at them guaranteed................

    Human nature is to judge. Do to this people tend to reject what they are not accustomed to. Quite frankly I think that you shouldn't really care. People will be people and in today's society that all to often involves irrational feeling.
