Do you ever feel judged for having stretched ear?

I used to feel this but eventually got over it.  No need to hear my story we want to hear yours.

    No, never have because I do me and could care less what anyone else thinks. (I do notice people’s eyes focused in on my ears sometimes…I just tilt my head a little like, “yeah…my eyes are over here”. Lol

    Only by my mom. But she still loves me. c:

    At first, I think because I was only 13 when I started, I was being more judged. But the older I get the less I get judged. I find it also makes a difference what plugs/tunnels I have in. When I have my amethyst plugs they just tell me they’re pretty. When I have my steel tunnels in they tend to be more rude. Something I find very odd though, is that being a CNA working in retirement homes, I am judged far less than when I’m working with people under 50yrs. My residents who are all 65+ years old all love my stretched ears. It’s their children who judge me more.

    Yes, literally my boss talks about putting padlocks on my ears

    Yes, I’ve been judged by family, coworkers, and random people passing by me. The first thing I get asked by them is always, “Is that a hole in your ear?!” Then followed by “Take it out, I wanna see how big it is!” Some call me crazy, others will just say if that’s what I like then it’s none of their business why I did it. I’ve never had anyone become aggressive over it but, I’ve had people question my mental health! I just laugh it off and tell them to have a good day.
