This HAS happened to me a few times, and hence I asked the question.

It seems that it is sometimes in our nature to look at anything that is different, or is it only me.

Over the years, however, I have learnt not to look twice at someone like this as I know it must be awful.

My father had a huge operation on his face resulting in a "plastic" type ear after his was removed. I always remember how people stared at him and I always just wanted to go and hit them.

No I make sure I don't look at them once seen as I either feel sorry for them (if they have an affliction) or don't want to give them attention (if they are trying to shock people with the way they look)

If I notice any difference I tend to try and act as though I have not noticed it. It is more respectful to embrace that person instead of visually marginalize through not-so-subtle staring.
I probably did when I was young,but I cannot truly frecall doing this as an adult!! Maybe it is due to having friends in wheelchairs and with other physical afflictions which normally would make them stand out. I know when I had my brain tumor removed,others looked at me as though I was a bit weird,and it is NOT a nice thing to be on the freceiving end of. On my worst day,I made some terrible comment to the person giving me the odd look,that at least I have proof that there IS a brain in my head!!!! It broke the ice and we both started to laugh,even more heartily as passers by stared at BOTH of us as though we were two mad peas in a pod!!!
I think we all do it unintentionally without meaning any harm.

I won't stare, but I will look. I like 'people watching' in general.

When I was young, yes.

As I got much older, I just go about my day and just pay no attention.
I put myself in their shoes, and that keeps me from looking.
I do enjoy people watching in general - like in the airport - but I don't stare at anyone for being "different". I think everyone is the same really

Yup, myself in the Mirror.
Nope. My parents would have never allowed it. If I look at somebody who looks different I always smile at them as well so as not to appear rude. Differences don't bother me. I agree with fran - never look at the people who are attention seekers.
