Family criticizing your significant other?

I was just wondering if you guys have ever experienced this. Me and my boyfriend have been dating for over a year and he just started college for pre-pharmacy. At my cousin's wedding, some of my family was picking on my boyfriend's hair because it was a little spiky. My mom later informed me that one of my uncles made a comment about my boyfriend planning to make a career as a pharmacist saying, "Yea, THAT'S gonna be a pharmacist." My mom was not happy when she heard that, and either was I when she told me. I love my family, but I feel he has no right to judge my boyfriend just because he's not the clean-cut guy like my cousin's husband. No offense to him, but I don't think someone that cuts yards for a living should judge my boyfriend's goals. Why do people have to be so closed-minded and judgemental?
