For the same reasons that some men stereotype women. It is easy to stereotype and to come up with the mythological - 'all men/women behave this way'.
It is sloppy thinking.
I figured as much because I hate hearing all guys are the same from the same girl. They end up choosing the same type of guy expecting to get a different result. The generalization is really annoying because the guys they go for are really all the same but they only go for the cute face and not the personality. Thanks for your answer
Everyone generalizes or judges someone or something. It is a natural human instinct. We base future actions off of the reactions of previous situations. That doesn't always mean that we (everyone) is right in their judgment. I hope you noticed that your question is also a generalization of women.
Yes, basically just became the prime example in a opposite sense of my question. I should have said some women that I've seen instead of women in general
Your first statement is already a generalization of people. That makes the rest of your comment dubious. Your third and fourth sentences are also generalizations. The burden of proof lies on you to prove "it is a natural human instinct."
If it isn't natural instinct, explain why EVERY mentally capable human judges? Simply typing "Is Judging human nature" into google will provide multiple studies proving it IS human instinct. So no, it wasn't a generalization, but instead facts!
People tend to generalize in order to (save) themselves "time" or "protect" themselves. It requires a lot less effort.
They don't want to take the time or exert the energy it requires to get to know people (individually) on a case by case basis. Thus you hear phrases like (all men or all women...etc) or "Once a cheater always cheater" As if it's possible to be a former smoker, former drinker, or former drug user but if someone age 35 cheated once at age 21 they are (stuck cheating) for the rest of their lives! It makes no logical sense! Smoking, drinking, drug using, and cheating are all (choices).
However as I stated each of us seeks to "simplify" life for ourselves and we do this by generalizing. Very rarely do the words (all, never, or always) apply to anything.

Why are there so many single, black women in the United States?I'm married (let me just put that out there). However, I can not help but feel some kind of way about the dilemma that is obviously plaguing many black women in this day and age. This is not a new idea, but since I'm a black woman, and...

Why should a women be respected?Should a women be respected because she is a female or respected due to her actions. Should men be respected at the same level or dismissed, as something irrelevant, as there not seem to be the same demand for respect.

What do people think of Christ based on talking to you?Do you show the fruits of the spirit? Do you condemn the lost souls to help. Do you fulfill the Great Commision? How do you talk to people who are not Christians.
