Why do people judge others they hardly know?

People these days always stereotype people they hardly know during the high and middle school years. Like for example, when you wear black all over with dark makeup people just call you emo. AND THEY DON'T KNOW YOU YET! Want more? Thick glasses, straight As, yep, you guessed it, a stereotypical "geek". People these days need to stop calling people they don't know "emo", "prep", "weirdo", "wimp", "freak", and "geek"! It might offend them in some way. Imagine YOU getting called "freak" or "nerd". Or even profanity words that I will not name! Those profanity words hurt people worst of all. Some people get hurt by people telling them "No one likes you, *insert profanity word here*. You are just worthless and a freak. Why would anyone like you?". It's just plain wrong! Sure, you have great taste but that loner across the street doesn't. That doesn't mean that NO ONE likes him/her! Want more hurtful words that other people say sometimes? Here:

Victims sometimes had enough on bullying and they go and do self harm. A great number of victims do that everyday. Please stop increasing that number. It's getting us sick.

Really, people stereotype everyone. it's not a bad thing- it's how our brains are programmed. It's a survival thing, really. there's nothing wrong with that (though it is important not to act upon it unless you've got a darn good reason) It's more noticable in teens thank to a number of factors.  Interest in establishing/changing rules,  pushing boundaries, ever changing sense of self/ experimenting with identity, self esteem issues. (all perfectly normal things) they all kind of clash together. Those who see themselves as strong leaders/rule makers naturally want to make those who push the boundaries conform to what they see as "right", those with low self esteem cover up by lashing out at those who have already been picked on, or start it off by picking on someone with a strong sense of self. really it's all natural. and I think bullying will be a part of our lives forever- specially in teenage years. but that said, it so easily getting out of control is definitely not ok- specially with cyber bullying (you have time to think before you hit enter/the post button)  It getting over the top needs to stop, really. It stays with someone the rest of their lives.

I'm sarcastic a lot. If I offended you I probably didn't mean to. Probably.

People bully because they are lower then you. They have a low self esteem and think its OK to be mean and they think its so hilarious. Like the plastics in mean girls - they have flaws, but their too concieted and think that everyone else is a loser because they arent 'as amazing' as they are. They want to bring you down so they can feel better and have 'more power' over you. Bullies are low lifers who have nothing better to do then judge you. And chances are, they're just jealous because you are a reflection of what they wish to be. If you get bullied anymore, tell them its against the law to bully and you can get in so much trouble, and double the trouble if its cyberbullying. Dont be afraid to report or call someone to take care of it. Everyone has talents. No one is usless, ugly and a freak.

ILYYYY

I love youuuuusmilesmilesmile

I disagree with stereotypes not being harmful. I think they are because, whether they realize it or not, a person's beliefs shape their actions.

It's just what people do, and I've learned to accept that fact. Yes, it's not fun, but it's just part of human nature. The human brain automatically categorizes and associates things with others, bullying and judgement will always exist. We are not perfect.

Yesterday was history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,

That is why it is called the Present

I never said it wasn't harmful. just that it's totally natural and there's nothing essentially wrong with it. (not that it's really "right" most of the time either, it's more just there)

Because they're either envious for something that we have that they don't, or just simply pick on people to make themselves feel better.
