Welcome back to another slice of my mind! It’s hump day unless your week starts on a Tuesday now so lets celebrate halfway through the week. So has everyone seen or heard about this don’t judge challenge? Is it wrong if I judge the people doing it? I don’t think most of this kids think they are doing anything offensive but to me the message I see can be quite mean and hurtful.
If you haven’t seen the videos, basically these kids paint pimples on their faces and make a silly face into the camera, then cut away and reveal they didn’t look ugly at all. This to me just says “we have the ability to change ugly features into beautiful (even normal) features.” If you want to teach acceptance and not to judge, then you should try and avoid saying that people should be able to change.
Yet again, I doubt most of these kids are doing this to purposefully offend people. I don’t expect them to think that far forward about their actions. I do however hope this will teach some of them that just because something is main stream or popular doesn’t make it the right or okay thing to do, even when you think you may be spending a positive message, you have to really stop and think about what you are saying in relation to the rest of the world.
So let me know what you think about the don’t judge challenge. Did you come off the same way to you as it did to me? What are some ways you would spread the message of don’t judge? Let me know down below and I’ll see you on Friday!
