As far as jobs and career choices we all know it's always gonna be hard for us out there. Yea there are laws etc. but in reality you're always going to be judged and even turned down for some jobs. Of course they won't tell u the reason. We chose that lifestyle and we have to bear the consequnces of this still extremely primitive society almost in the year 2017. I'd even say in a lot of aspects it's more primitive now than it was in certain times of the past.
In America there's probably a bit easier cause a larger % of pupulation, it's way more racially diverse etc. Where I live literally nobody have dreads and they sometimes look at me as a circus animal (even tho only 3 months in the proccess yet). I have to tie my hair for at least 4 hours at work, but luckily I untie it again when I'm alone (I do this type of work I'm alone for let's say 4 hours and other 4 I'm not). People are bothered cause of my looks, they mock me that I look like Jesus or some silly stuff like this would be a bad thing. I don't care it's just not easy to manuever through it on a daily basis. Of course some other people also love it, but those are pretty rare.
As far as job goes I'd advise u to try and keep your beard a little trimmed and not go all out with it. Also don't do piercings and tattoos/big holes in ears etc. I don't judge anyone based on their appearence but majority of people will. I'd say if u have dreads and u do tie them sometimes and a beard that's not extremely long then u have better options. But if u go all out with beard plus piercings/tattoos then this could eventually become o problem on a job market.
Yea I know this is extremely wrong and sad in my opinion. It's a fact that society wants everyone to act and look like robots, just look at the politicians for example. All looking (and acting) like clones.
