  • That teenagers are druggies and shoplifters. but anything racist towards anybody pisses me off too.
  • That a woman who has sex with more than one person is a slut or a whore. It's stereotypical bull sh*t dished out by people who don't have a freakin clue.
  • So many to choose from! In the current climate of the US, I'd have to say the most dangerous stereotype is that "all Muslims are terrorists". And it is SO unfair.
  • The one that bugs me most often is the 'dumb blonde' stereotype. I'm not blond, and I'm not dumb, but I don't think it is funny at all. After that, I think I agree with Anon that the image of teenagers as worthless, brainless, and untrustworthy is a really bad stereotype. That one actually makes me mad, because if you insist on treating people, esp. young people, like that, then a lot of them will start to try to live up to that image from spite. Some stereotypes can be funny, but mostly, none of them really are. They are often quite cruel.
  • That Blacks are ignorant. That really irritates me to high h***. That Mexicans are worthless- they work their a**es off to support their household and even through all of that, they find time to have some beer and party a little. That White people are power-driven - there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting everything out of life that it has to offer. That Bush is the worst president ever- do your history project on past presidents and maybe you'll understand where I'm coming from. That anyone wearing a turban or hijab on their head is a terrorist or suicide bomber. That Americans are fat and lazy. The list goes on, but this is just part of the reason that this nation is so divided. I'm so glad that atleast ONE person looks beyond all of the stereotypical b.s.- that'd be me :)
  • All nationalities stereotypes annoy the f out of me- beautiful, amazing, fascinating etc.. people come from every creed, country, sex, class or what ever and unfortunately, so do shitty people.. That women are bad drivers- please... most women really shouldn't drive, but men cause most accidents.. That some people tell me that because I am good looking I should have an easy and successful life.. I should have lots of money and lots of sex and that I just complicate my own life- they may be right. But what am I to do, when I believe this is all too shallow for me to deal with? That people that have animals(pets)have difficulties with human relations/ lack of human contact-WTF?
  • The Fact that people from Beverly Hills are snobby little brats, i am a down to earth person who just likes to have fun. I did not grow up with money, wiping my @$$ with Hundreds.I am comfortable, thats it
  • Mexicans are lazy All latinos are the same Black people are ignorant Black people stay on welfare for their whole lives All Arabian/Middle Eastern People are terrorist All gay guys are promiscuous and have AIDS/HIV Jews are cheap and only care about money Oh, yeah That latinos have a bunch of kids and all live in one house.(People ask me this all the time) I could go on, but it's making me angry just to think of them.
  • all kids in mill valley are rich. totally not true. i live in mill valley and my family isnt rich, and i know of a whole lot more families who arent rich either. i will admit that to buy a house and live in mill valley today is expensive and that you would have to be rich even though average house price has dropped a little bit, its still pretty expensive. i have lived here for 15 yrs when it was cheaper.
  • I have two that bugs the hello out of me. First is that anyone who owns firearms or wants to own firearms is some kind of person that wishes for violence, is irresponsible or is an idiot. That is very wrong and if people would actually do research for themselves instead of getting spoonfed all their beliefs, then they would see that it is not so. You have nutcases, to be sure, though they aren't as many as most anti-self defense people would have you believe. Secondly, I hate the stereotype that anyone who prepares for disasters (natural or man-made), disagrees with public opinion, wants to close the borders, has a lot of firearms and homeschools their children are anti-government fanatics. This is totally hyped and as with the above, people judge a whole group by the actions of one person. They aren't criminals or psychotics to be shunned by society. They have a different way of doing things and wish for a return to normalcy that we haven't seen in some years. That's just two of them that bug me. I have more. Though that's for another time.
  • I got 2 that women are slut's for having sex with lot's of men. and that I am one of those slut's
  • I got 2 that women are slut's for having sex with lot's of men. and that I am one of those slut's
  • that all asian people are smart. not all are. expesially the ones that decided to put the ps3 up for $600
  • just because im greek...i believe in zeus...thats so retarded
  • EMO and todays generation
  • Emos. They're basically just depressed teenagers following a trend, but that doesn't mean they should be demeaned quite so much. I've been accused of being an emo simply because I wear black (??).
  • The welfare stereotypes that portray people of color, especially women, as depraved, irresponsible abusers of the system. That one really pisses me off.
  • white people who pretend to be black and they're totally serious about it. like all that gangsta stuff. it annoys me.
  • All of them because to stereotype is one of the dumbest things one can do. I personally always base my opinion of someone on the individual themselves, not an entire group of people, that way it's a lot more accurate.
  • The stereo type that depicts women are less intelligent then men and generally weak and women are rarely able to successfully combine marriage and employment. "That is a bunch of CRAP".
  • All South Asians are dark skinned and like curry. UHHH ! ! !
  • OH AND I FORGOT THE BIG ONE!!! .....All people who wear glasses are geeks.
  • That all convicted felons are hardened criminals and will rip you off and/or kill your family and they don't deserve a decent job and should'nt be raising kids ect... That all black men look alike. That mexicans are lazy and have to many kids. That asian people are cheap. That teenagers are stupid. That women who like sex are sluts. That guys who wear thier pants to low are gangsters. I could be here all day,I hate all stereotypes and more than that,judgemental people annoy me to no end.And prejudice people are weak and small.(sorry,I guess I am getting mad.)
  • To put it simply....... all of them.
  • that dominicans only clean toilets.. and thats not true.. there alot of my people who are professional you know..
  • The woman driver one. I am the best driver in the known universe. I have mad skillz.
  • all of them they are all STEREOTYPES mere opinions not facts
  • Goths drink your blood,sleep in places where dead people are and worship Satan.
  • That overweight people are all lazy couch potatoes that can't do anything for themselves. Angers me so!
  • When you have the tiniest drawl (Southern: Alabama, Mississippi, etc), you are immeadiatly a hick who is complete idiot living in a broken down trailer.
  • The stereotype that if you were born a 'white American male', you are you are considered evil. I happen to be of that group, and I get constant grief because of it.
  • All of them bother me, but can you really blame people for them? I mean, ever since we were little we have been labeling things. I think it's time for us to break the habit.
  • That drug addicts are not functional.
  • that overweight people are not fit... don't give me that shit! when i was in grade 7 i weighted 180lbs (i later found out it's from a medical thing, but that's besides the point). I could run just as fast and far as anyone else, and i did. I rode my bike everywhere, i was never inside on the couch, i took good care of myself and ate healthy. People just just seem to get this idea in there head that overweight people are the way they are because they are lazy... that's not the case for everyone!!
  • That all teenagers are stupid, on drugs, having lots of sex, are bad drivers, and like vandalism. Granted, some are like that, but definitely not ALL. Sometimes, I think there are some teenagers who could do a better job at governing the U.S. And That all women are weak, dumb, and like everything considered "girly/frilly/cute."
  • Living in Australia, I get this alot, and it's worse than any American stereotype I've come across. All aboriginal people are criminals, they can't hold on to jobs, they 'are genetically comfortable' with alcohol because they don't have the 'lineage' for it (bullshit), that they all smell and should live in the bush, that they are unable to take care of themselves, and that it's their fault that they live in third-world conditions. It's disgusting how ignorant people can be - they see racism against Australian aboriginals as justified.
  • Okay, I held this stereotype until I became one. I once had a History class that I needed to add. So I went to one teacher and he was great big fat guy. SO I decided to try another prof at the same tim eframe. I assumed the fat guy would be stupid and lazy. Boy was I WRONG!!!!!! Now I am fat and I see that same judgement in people's eyes. I am intelligent, motivated, and pretty damn witty. But at least I understand the steretype.
  • All stereotypes bug me. We are all different no matter what classification society tries to put us in Maybe That all caucasian middle class could care less about anyone else. The I'm all right Jack syndrome Or all ethnic minority kids are muggers and theives Women are weak and second class.
  • All stereotypes bug me, but the two that bug me the most are that Mexicans are lazy and that all Mexicans are ignorant and uneducated. These stereotypes are not true.
  • That Christians will shove their beliefs down one's throat, or that a religious person is a "blind follower" that "needs someone to think for them" "believe anything anyone tells them" or that they are irrational or illogical. As if they never THOUGHT about their faith. Stupid offensive stereotypes that I hear these ALL the time on AB and somehow they never get flagged as offensive. Such a double standard...
  • All Christians are ignorant Republicans.
  • I come from Mississippi, and that apparently makes me a hick (already stated by.. Anonymous). My dad is German, I am suddenly a Nazi (already stated by.. Missmysyd). My mother is Greek, and now I believe in Zeus (already stated by.. Peternator30000). Overall these stereotypes make me a Nazi hick who believes in the Olympian gods.
  • I am 100% Puerto Rican and I don't fit into any of the stereotypes that a lot of people in the USA have of us. I was in the NAVY and I suffered a lot of discrimination because of stereotypes. I have nothing to do with the Puerto Rican/New York culture that is the main source of those stereotypes. I am very organized, disciplined and I have a quiet, mild personality. I only listen to Country Music. Loud people make me sick, plus many other details that are 100% the opposite of what many people thought I was supposed to like or be like while I was living there.
  • I hate the way Japanese guys get all protective of the women they're with when ever a foreigner is around because of their penchant for stereotyping, I mean it's not our fault that they're all myopic, bucktoothed geeks, right? LOL
  • SLUTS.
  • I've been verbally abused because of my asian and height factors. I hate the stereotype that says that Asian women make good sexual object, because of their size. That's NOT they way to view a human being! I keep being laughed at because they say that asian men are small, in more more than one way, which isn't true. Every man is different! I was always picked last during the selection of teams, because I was only 5'6" and for that people related height with strength. The bigger you are, the stronger you are. The shorter you are, the weaker you are. Nevermind the fact that I benched 220lb at 16 years of age and ran the mile in 5 minutes flat! I wish people would keep an open mind on issues. Stereotypes lay down a foundation of predestined characteristics of a person or group. I ask that when you have children, you teach them to see through the ignorance and push through the barriers that have been set.
  • That man are stronger than females...it is not true. 10 mexicans can live under the same roof on a one bedroom apartment. Mexicans all work for minimum wage latins are all janitors and all clean toilets should i go on...to prove my point i just hate them all and it bugs me so much.
  • That just because I'm white I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth and have had everything handed to me.
  • EMO I AM EMO BUT THE SLIT WRIST STUFF IS NOT! TRUE!
  • that all world leaders know something we don't. honestly they're just as smart as anyone, which is why they fuck up as much as anyone.
  • The new one I never knew existed, but found on AB: That anyone who is Christian is deluded, ignorant, fanatically evangelical, and somehow worthy of constant verbal (typed) abuse. Now before you slam me, I am pro-opinion. I respect a person's right to believe or not believe in any faith, higher power or religion of his/her choosing.
  • 1. Black people steal from stores therefore need to be followed around 2. Spanish people steal in general 3. Muslims are terrorists 4. Chinese people can't drive 5. Members of rock bands are all on drugs 6. Gay people have AIDS All of these stereotypes are not true and are complete Bulls**t!!!!

  • the worst has to be the penis size thing.
  • That just because i'm feminine on the inside and would love to show it on the outside,makes me gay! WRONG!!!!this also stops me from being who i want to be in society,my own kids dont know because they would be tormented in school.
  • That people who live in trailer parks and shop at walmart are white trash! That if your in a wheel chair, something must be wrong with you! That if your a blonde chick, your dumb! That if your wearing blue jean overalls, your a farmer! That if your deaf,dumb, or blind, that your not human! That all asians know kung fu! That all mexicans take a siesta!
  • METAL HEADS
  • that India is very poor, dirty, cows everywhere.
  • That a degree makes you smarter/better than everyone else. I have several and trust me, I'm just as dumb as the next guy. I also know plenty of autodidactic people who leave me in the dust initellectually.
  • I hate how people think emos cut themself. Not all emos do that. emo just simply means bipolar people. does not just mean sad people who cut themselves and hate life.
  • the one that says i must be a bad person because i have a tattoo and lots of piercings
  • Judgemental people people who spread rumors and those who choose to believe the rumor without looking into it. people who think that its ok or they are justified for doing or being a certain way but not ok for others people who make comments or try to give advice on things they have never been through either themselves or watched someone close to them go through
  • That if someone asks a quetion about a law they are automatically commiting the crime they are asking about.
  • Average middle-aged white guys are dim-witted, unhip and "slow"!
  • Well all stereotypes are really stupid. But my least favorite would have to be... That all blondes are dumb. That is probably one of the most stupid things I have ever heard.
  • That socialism is communism and means we all have to wear hair shirts and take everyones money and property away. And as it truly is a fair distribution of wealth based on merit and not patronage or right of birth.
  • That Mexicans are here to steal other's "jobs"... If you have lived here for so long, you would think that your knowledge of the English language and everything else your generations have worked for, for such a long time could get you a better job then non English speakers unless you are incompetant. Also that Latin's are on Welfare taking others money, if you were smart you would know that to be on welfare you need to have a residence card which means you have a legal right to be here...
  • even my father says this stereotype.. dont go to hiphop clubs because u might get shot. i hate that. like people in a hiphop club stand in the corner with a loaded gun gun and waits for a person to get on the dance floor and shoot them for the hell of it.. thats not the case at all.
  • whatever label is being placed on me this week.
  • People discriminate against disabilities that they were born with
  • Here's one that has ALWAYS bothered the hell out of me & other people that I know...."Oh you're gay? you're to beautiful to be gay, what a waste".....I didn't know you had to look a certain way to BE gay first off and second off why should it be a waste that i'm giving a woman my undivided attention??? Is it becuase i'm not givin it to YOU!? Sorry....I just feel strongly about that stereotype.
  • I hate the stereotype that all jews have big noses.
  • All stereotypes are terrible, though I have to say the one that bothers me most must be the 'goth' one. I was called a goth oh so many times, and I really hate it. Yes, I did dress in darker colours (didn't wear much colour more than red or purple, with the occasional pink.), my writings were dark, my nails were black... but who's place is it to judge me, or anyone by how we dress? Maybe I was trying to be myself, to show my true colours (that weren't very colourful, really.). I've been through some stuff, as everyone has, and expressed it in my way, and that was it. Why should I belabelled a goth, when all I was striving to be was myself?
  • When I tell people that I'm a psychology major they usually reply with "so, I can come lay on your couch and tell you about my childhood?" It just makes me mad because there's so much more to it!
  • The stereotype that I am racist because I am white. For example: Working in a night club and a black guy comes up and asks for a double vodka and red bull. I reply with "that's gonna be £8.20", straight off the bat without having to type it in to the till. He gives me a funny look and asks "what?" I start typing it in and I repeat the price. He replies with "alright." I make it, then put it in front of him and say "that's £8.20 please mate?" He becks me towards him as if to make sure I can hear him with the volume of the music (which is common) and he says "what, you think I won't pay it because I'm black?" That I find is the worst, racists of racism. Slightly hypocritical!
  • That white girls are superficial, materialistic, and can't dance.
  • The stereotype that says Americas are fat. Lazy, sometimes, but definitely not all fat... I'm at a healthy weight for my age, height, and body type, and I don't know many people that are really overweight.
  • The whole bad boy rebel thing. Maybe even the more modern emo crap. Teenages need to cheer te hell up.
  • Italians beat their wifes....I hate that...its actually the other way around...lol

  • that people on the internet spend all day asking each other questions
  • The stereotype I hate the most is that by using a stereotype people think you mean all people of that group. Someone can be a stereotype without all other people being one. I have seen a stereotypical cowboy, ive also seen a gay cowboy.
  • THE STEREOTYPE THAT MEN WITH "LIMP WRISTS" AND WOMEN WHO "LIKE SPORTS" are gay. Sure sometimes that is true but why should anyone be stereotyped because anykind of stereotyping is just another way of proving that prejudice is alive and well in the world today. There is no reason on God's green, yellow, brown earth for stereotyping to exist, even subconsciously, which proves that the person grew up in an environment where sterotyping, judging, predjudice, discrimination, labeling was acceptable by family, friends, church, police and/or others. So SAD.
  • That if a woman is upset about something, she must be on her period. This is rediculous!
  • white people are all racist
  • Blonds are dumb.
  • People from prison are "bad".
  • Judging people by race. This is like saying that golf clubs are the same. Just because they're in the same bag doesn't make them the same!
  • When people judge a person by the car that they drive.
  • that Americans are stupid lol
  • that i'm an irresponsible slut because im a teenage mom
  • that english people are posh.
  • Is there a word for intolerance of intolerance? It seems to me that by trying to control what people think or say because they have a different perspective than yours is intolerant. Intolerant people now become a stereotype. You don't have to be educated on a subject to have an opinion about that subject. The stereotype that bugs me the most is intolerant people.
  • All stereotypes...
  • Older people as incapable or boring or just as has-beens. They are not appreciated for their wisdom and wealth of experience. Any stereotype that smacks of race or religion is a defeat for all humans; we should be better than that.
  • dumb blonde and i hate wen ppl say that its offensive. But i hate that wen some makes a blonde joke and if u get mad they're just like "it was just a joke" but if u just laught off u just get sucked farther into the stereotype
  • women drivers women don't need to make as money as men that white people are all rich, have insurance , and don't need help
  • Men are sexist. Doesnt bother me as much as it makes me laugh
  • All Romani are Gypsies (says so in the dictionary) and all Gypsies are thieves, scammers, and flim-flam artists. I know several Romani, and NONE of them break the law.
  • Fat people are greedy and eat a lot. Fat people are lazy.
