Why do the people with the least room to judge do it the most?


It's a trend I've noticed here on HubPages and elsewhere. Why do you think people who do things society in general views negatively (drug abuse, addiction, arrest records, acting trashy, lacking education, etc.) are the first to judge others on "controversial" issues, such as being gay, abortion, transgender issues, having a baby outside of marriage, etc.? Is it insecurity? Do they feel like if they judge others, we won't notice their shortcomings? Is it plain old hypocrisy? I have my own theories (yep, that's judgmental,) but I'm curious about others.

    Excellent points, Vince. Thanks! I think a lot of it really does boil down to projection.

    Thank you for making some very good points, Lisa HW. I think a lot of people are quick to see judgment where curiosity may be a better explanation.
