Yeah, check the edit I made while you were posting
I'm currently trying to hash out exactly what I want the distinction I use here to be. I'm thinking about the question "Is it more difficult for the person to use the space if they do <X> than if they don't"; a person finding it difficult to not wear perfume seems difficult for me to believe, although on the other hand, it's probably true for some people, and just another thing that I need to get over the difficulty of believing.
EDIT: Now introspectively approaching the notion of "I judge" from a behavior perspective ("what do I generally do?") rather than a moral perspective ("what do I believe is right?"): When someone is polluting a public space I use with perfume, I usually can't tell who it is and just leave the space. Then sometimes I complain to other people in a way that doesn't show respect for the person's decision to use it. So I'm still judgingly promoting a social order in which perfume is unacceptable. Maybe I shouldn't do that. I haven't been convinced, yet, that I shouldn't, but I could imagine being convinced of that.
