Some people may not like this.

I'm sorry if you're offended.

You should be aware that you are defined by your actions, and that you don't have full control over them either. It is a good idea to judge a book by its cover, but be aware that the cover is the product of some marketing campaign set in motion by an entity that is not the object of your judgment. Once you have grasped that you need to judge by the intention of the entity responsible for the cover you can then make better decisions based upon it. Also, for those poor souls who believe that they dress that way because they like it and not because they are copying someone else, pity their inability to break free from their automated self system and adjust their direction. You can't choose your actions, you can only adjust the strategy and tactics. You will always do what you would do unless you actively pursue something that is difficult, that requires will power to achieve. Living in a world of other people who also have to survive this situation without themselves being aware of it can at times be tiresome, but inevitably, your own ability to appreciate just how difficult using will power is can make the act of forgiveness for human frailty a simple one.
