Old people are forgetful. I recall thinking just yesterday that.......
What was the question again?
When people say that abused children will grow up to be abusers themselves or not amount to anything. So unfair and so very wrong.
I hate racist stereotypes. Examples include "black people are ghetto [talk loud, are poor and live in low income areas, wear their pants off of their butts (males), and do not speak proper English]", "Hispanic people all live in houses full of people, will drop out of school, and (the girls) will get pregnant before finishing high school", and "all Asian people look alike and (Asian Americans) speak minimal English". Those are just a few that come to mind.
I agree with Dandra - that beautiful people are shallow or nasty.
I think all stereotypes are based in hatred or fear. generalization never hold true.We are amazing, unique, and dynamic creatures. We have so much more in common than we have differences.
Attractive people are stupid or a "real woman" has to be over-weight.
In fact many department stores call their "plus size" areas "Woman's sizes" as if women who wear size 10 and below are not women!!!
By contrast in men's stores you still see areas called "Big and Tall". (They aren't called "Man sizes")
Stereotypes based on race because all people of a certain race are still individuals. Some are rich, poor, educated, uneducated, nice, mean, whatever. People of a certain race can come from any country in the world, so how can an American person of race x be compared to an English person of race x. Their culture and nationality will define who they are more than their race.
Stereotypes are set by averages and not individual truth so they are pretty much all unfair.

From going through religious and political forums, I noticed some hubbers feel that democrats are pro atheists while republicans are pro religion. Although, I've met plenty of atheists that were republicans, and I've known quite a few religious democrats during my time. Therefore, I'm a...

Is it wrong to be upset about someone stereotyping you,if you stereo type others?
by Michael Ward 6 years ago
How do you feel about the stereotyping of beliefs?For example whenever an atheist like me does something wrong it somehow manages to reflect on atheists as a whole, not just me as a person. Whenever a catholic does something wrong it's a similar event (like the priest scandals). Whenever it's a...

Do people sometimes try to fit themselves into a stereotype?I sometimes find myself trying to identify with specific stereotypes, even though I don't think I am one. Does anyone else do this? Why do you?
