I’ve learned to judge folks by what they are from inside; and NOT by what they appear from out. Isn’t it something how NATURAL our inclination to judge people happens without our even thinking about it? And we gay men take one look and summarize each other by tagging one another. When we judge, we are looking for pertinent information, trying to determine whether the person approaching is a threat, an ally, or someone we don’t need to worry about. SO WHY DO WE JUDGE EACH OTHER WHEN IT LEADS TO AN OVERLY SIMPLISTIC READING OF THE PEOPLE WE MEET?
