    Hey everybody. Out of curiousity, which irritating stereotype have you had the most personal experience with?

    For me, I've definitely had bad experiences with blonde stereotypes. Many people who don't know me assume that I'm easy, dumb, etc. I also get people assuming that I'm unapproachable/stuck up (not true at all lol). I especially dislike the whole "blonde white girls are easy" stereotype, it's definitely aggravating at times.

    I'm Filipino and German therefore I can't drive and I think I'm genetically superior than everyone else.

    I'm Black and White, therefore I must be oversized in some areas, as well as a good dancer, but I also get a break with the cops and (at least when I was in school) I was a "brainiac." "Oh, you must get the best of both worlds."

    When co-workers learn that I'm in a rock band,if I'm ever late they always assume that it's because I was out partying too late.:(

    I'm American, and I live in Europe. So whenever I watch the BBC, I basically have to sit through endless jokes about Americans being uncultured/dumb/materialistic.

    Of course, what really bugs me about stereotypes is that they are, unfortunately, usually true (that's where they come from)

    stereotypes are true to a certain extent.


    bumb blondes do exists and are easy.
    some black people do eat watermelon and chicken.
    some woman cant drive for shnit
    etc. of course i do hate when those stereotypes stretch to generalize me in the loop. for instance, i was at the campus book store readinga comic, i went to put it back to the shelf, when the old lady next to me said that she didnt expect people of my kind(im black) to actually put a book back on the shelf after reading it. i was like wtf?

    I shave my head and have a beard. I'm not overly muscley but am quite big and broad-shouldered. I get a lot of people looking at me like some kind of thug. The amount of times I see people cross the road to avoid me really annoys me, it's not like I'm gonna rip anyones head off.

    I am stereotyped as a pissed off, brooding, whack job.....honestly! And in real life I am a loving, kind, personable Christian.

    What a bloody difference?! :eek: I must say, I like the brooding part though.

    I get two stereotypes done about me...

    Because I'm black, some people think I have to act and talk a certain way. A friend of mine said that I don't "act black" and I said "why, because I talk clearly and use common sense and read books?" and he goes "yeah". And because they some think I automatically know how to dance.

    Then because I'm a quiet person who doesn't smile a lot, people think that I'm some psycho with a gun hidden under my jacket and ready to shoot everybody.

    You should smile more though. It puts people at ease, and lets people read your 'intentions' better, and easier. It makes you look more personable towards them too.

    And as for myself - just once, a well-done gay romance in a comedy and/or action in the mainstream Hollywood, with straight-acting characters.

    Not every gay person is like that effeminate, egocentric, screaming flaming, pink-wearing hairstyling queen. :rolleyes:

    Or, in 'minor' roles or those used as a subplot, or even worse, as sometime as an important part of the story but don't even kiss or be affectionate with their partner, or anything.

    No MORE talks of diseases or the long, arduous 'coming out process' or anything!

    Well because I'm a tall, blonde, who loves to dance and shop. People perceive me as dumb/dizty, which happens sometimes but I know ALOT more brunettes who are actual idiots. And cause I host a-sort-of news show for my high school, and provide an actual personality on camera, some people see me as far to perky.

    When really I'm quite involed in Theater(movies Too!), I love to study physics, and I spend my time reading comix and Stephen King novels. My friends find this weird but they support me anyways!

    i hate it when my friends ask me about black actors/celebrities simply because i'm black. it's not like i keep a rolodex with all of their names in it. i also hate how whenever it comes to starting a band, everyone suggests that i should either freestyle or beat box; instead of maybe playing an instrument.

    Well, being a Teddy Bear, I get the whole damn "CUTE 'n CUDDELY" stereotype.

    Yes I'm cute. Yes I'm cuddely. But "CUTE 'n CUDDELY"? **** THAT!!!
