Oh yes, absolutely, discrimination is inherent in the human psyche and is a beneficial survival skill.
Those who say they 'never' discriminate are either liars or lack understanding of the term.

...or just pseudo-pious pricks.

Discrimination is only bad based on intent.

I can discriminate against certain kind of movies because I like certain kinds and dislike others, that's not inherently foolish or unmoral for example.

Preference is just like discrimination, only preference assumes you don't inherently dislike the other thing for no apparent reason.

Agreed.
The OP finds greater pleasure from service by staff who visually please him. He chooses to pay extra for that perceived benefit.
That is preference.

That is giving personal favor to a certain group. If you tip unattractive waitresses less, though they have done just as good of a job as the ones you find attractive, that is a form of discrimination.

He is giving the attractive waitress a bonus tip for being attractive. I don't see it being discrimination, I see as praising her looks.

He is merely expressing his pleasure of being served by a person who improved his experience through how they looked visually.
What the # can anyone say is wrong with that?!

I've argued with the OP loads on ATS, I don't actually much like the image I have for the guy in my mind in some areas, but I enjoy ATS for pure debate, and if the question is his tipping others more because they visually pleased him?
# yeah I'll back him on that...explain why I shouldn't.

Do you consider it akin to bidding in the hope of it leading to more intimate relations with those you find attractive. Chances are they are already in a relationship.

That is your invention. You have no way of knowing.

*Edit*
I couldn't give a toss if someone is telling me lies about being in a relationship or not, that is their crime, not mine.
