☆ appearance 外見
We all know that we shouldn’t judge other people by their appearance, but we still do, right? When someone’s appearance is different to ours we make a judgment about them. Tatoos are not very popular in Japan, right? So, for example, someone with tattoos is judged for their appearance, they might be dangerous or something, even though they are very kind. This happens in Australia and other countries too, of course.
Earlier in the year, Coca Cola (Middle East) released an advertisement saying that appearance is not important, and that “labels are for cans, not people.” Did you see that on the internet anywhere? It was very interesting – a group of men in a dark room chatting, but if they’d seen those people in the light, they never would have talked to them because of their appearance.
