Do you perceive a threat of employment Discrimination for Lolitas?

This has been a concern of mine since I graduated with my B.A. and started looking for a "real" job. For my final goal in this field, which would be something involving psychological counseling, I would pretty much have to leave it altogether ;___; If I run into a client or a parent of a client (if I'm working with kids) dressed in lolita or hanging out with lolitas, it's over with >.<. But that's not for at least 3 years since I'll need a graduate degree for that. Right now, I'm in the clear since the jobs I would be able to find would be clerical or in retail, where I wouldn't have patients, and where at the entry level, I feel that no one cares about one's seemingly alternative lifestyle as long as you don't bring it to work with you XD

But have any of you felt like lolita has negatively affected or will negatively affect your career or your career choices, and you had to hide it or stop it altogether? Do you have concerns about pictures of you in loli being seen by potential employers? I realize a lot of it depends on the profession.

I hope an interesting, edifying discussion will come out of this. There are no right or wrong answers ^_^
