    ABSOLUTELY. There is no question about it. Appearance is a HUGE determining factor in how you are treated by others in any public space. I know from personal experience. I can be treated like dog shit at times because I look bad, and other times when my problems are not evident, I'm treated like a prince or something. It's fucking mindblowing the contrast I experience depending on my appearance. It's so vastly different it's like night and day, hot and cold, there is no comparison whatsoever between the two.

    I once helped a guy who was lying on the street semi conscious at 10am and he looked disgusting.

    Read the The True History of the Elephant Man. Joseph Merrick lived a very shitty life because of his deformity but this was a while ago but I understand most people are more accepting of disabilities now but still it would suck.

    Definitely. I buzz my hair every week with no guard and I've been asked numerous times if I'm a racist/skinhead/nazi. I could only imagine how many people think it without saying it.

    No doubt, appearance is pretty much everything to most people.
