All of these judging threads have me curious. (And I've now had fudge on my mind every time I hop onto BubHub, thank you very much.) I've read through most responses to the various judging threads (I do love me some hearty debate and crazy drama) and I've discovered something rather curious. Everyone seems to have a different idea of what actually constitutes judging.
It's not something that's been overtly mentioned, but reading the responses, there's obviously a wide variety of opinions as to what defines judging someone. Some people say they don't judge but they look and think 'whoa, that's not right'. Others say that they do judge but hey, each to their own. A few more mention that they're much too busy with their own children to even notice what's going on with other parents and, if they do, they'll just say meh and move on. It's quite an interesting read.
So I ask you, what do you consider judging? Do you judge by sitting there, seething because the parents at the other end of the food court is breastfeeding or formula feeding? Are you tempted to go over and whack them over the head with an encyclopaedia? Or do you merely glance over, blink and think, perhaps they shouldn't be allowing their child to guzzle a bottle of Coke?
See, for me, when I say I judge someone, I fall into the latter group. If I notice something that doesn't sit well with me, I'll give it a passing thought, maybe a mini rant to DF if he happens to be with me, and move on.
What about you? Where do you fall on the judging spectrum?
