Who are you to judge?!

What a strong negative connotation! Judging. Judging things, judging people, being judgmental... these are not pleasant things that polite and civilized people do... right?

But if judging is such a fault, perhaps we should learn what exactly it is. Hmm... I don't know exactly. Maybe Merriam-Webster can enlighten us:

Judge. Transititive verb. "to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises"

Hmm. That's... not what we expected, now is it? Judging is bad. But forming an opinion through careful weighing of evidence and testing premises... that doesn't sound so bad. Hmm.

What does that sound like to me?

Picture: XKCD! http://xkcd.com/1176/

When I was in high school, one year I would sit at this lunch table from time to time. There was this one chick there that was a bit different, but whatevs. People at the table didn't particularly like her, and would sometimes talk shit about her behind her back. Nothing too bad, just normal high school stuff. Occasionally, I'd stick up for her, to the point people would notice. But I'd never join the shit-talking and I generally discouraged it.

It was all pretty minor, but one day she had some party- I forget if it was a graduation party or her birthday- and she invited everyone at the table except for me. I never talk the talk.
