Stereotypes. They’re lazy. Especially the ones about certain groups being lazy. I guess those are actually…ironic, maybe?
In any case, almost everybody has some kind of stereotype they have to deal with at some point in their lives, and most people have a pet peeve.
Here are some groups that would very much like you to start thinking of them in more nuance, please – via Reddit.
That all the colombians can think about is drugs and coffee.
WE HAVE A BIT OF CULTURE THAT DOESN’T INVOLVE ANY OF THAT, CARIÑO!!!
2. Married Couples
Ball & Chain of marriage trope, and along the same line, the idiot dad trope.
Why can’t we normalize marriages that are happy with partners that each have their own flaws and strengths?
If you have autism you are either mentally challenged or have a special ability
4. Black people
Black people liking fried chicken.
EVERYONE LIKES FRIED CHICKEN!
That Germans have no Humor.
The only problem is, that I always feel like telling people that this stereotype is annoying just confirms them in their stereotypes.
6. Extroverts / Introverts
As an introvert, people think all extroverts are annoying attention seekers and all introverts have no friends and are shy
All Southern people are backwards, racist hillbillies.
Not a kid person= cold-hearted monster. It’s pretty awful when women say it to other women.
Also, the whole “all women must be supportive of each other” narrative. There are people out there who just always want to climb higher than everybody else and will willingly destroy anyone they view as an obstacle. Gender is irrelevant.
9. Expensive schools
the expensive schools are good schools, i live in colombia and i study in the best school of my town, the school is destroying himself
The blonde mean girl stereotype. Or dumb blonde. Or anything with blondes being lesser.
That being programmer means you’re good at everything related to computers (hacking, hardware, etc.).
H**l, even the different subcategories of programming are different. Being a game developer is very different from being a software developer or a web developer.
People from Alabama all know how to work on trucks, are as slow as molasses, and talk about “them new-fangled computers,” like it’s some foreign concept.
The last time I traveled out of Alabama to meet with family, I heard some people mocking me (both strangers and family) about my accent. It gets annoying real fast.
That women/wives are nags, the one thing they ask for help with, their partner just doesn’t do it and then god forbid she ask again for help with it.
Being from Texas, I hate those stereotypes.
I can’t tell you how many times I meet people who were so disappointed I didn’t have stories about riding my horse to work/school and living on a ranch.
I live in one of the biggest cities in the country, in the 21st century for crying out loud.
Why do so many seemingly intelligent people from around the country think it’s the Wild West here?
That Italians are easily provoked to anger.
P**ses me off so f*&%@ much!
Remember, everyone is different. We all suck in our own beautiful and unique ways.
What stereotype are you most sick of?
