Stereotypes that tick you off..

Mine are..

Southern people are racist dimwits.
Gun owners are violent crazy people.
Blondes are stupid.


AHHHH I wanna scream when I see these in movies or TV !

My friend is Thai & she wants to kill men who assume she is a submissive little asian doll who will follow them without questioning...haha, they get a nice shock when she shoots them down.

YaY for the Adoption Option
I've found 5 loving homes for 5 of my finned fellas, thanks
to this forum!

Nerds are all fat and have no sense of personal hygiene.

I'm from the south and I agree with that stereotype ticking me off... Grrr!! It makes me so mad! And I'm naturally a blonde, so when I do something goofy and ppl are like "It's ok you're blonde you can get away with it" I flame them.

I get ticked at alot, but the one that gets me is that Asians can not drive....*face palm*

My boyfriend is half asian. No sign of bad driving.

I dont really have any that are directed towards me. =/
I used to wear heavy mkaeup and I pretty much always wear black and people thought I was itimidating.. but that isnt really a bad thing I guess. just annoying when someone would be like "natalie will kick your butt" .. err, no I wont I dont even know how to punch!

I hate when people assume people from Appalachia are hicks, rednecks, hillbillies, and not as intelligent as everyone else. No, we do not play banjos and we do not eat squirrels. We are not inbred, and we don't marry our cousins -__-

No, I mean, some people believe most of us marry our 1st cousins. There are some who do, but most of us do not. It's just become kinda a stereotypical thing and that's what annoys me. It's not the cousin-marrying-cousin thing that gets me, just everyone assumes we all do it.

I hope I didn't offend anyone

Oh, I see. Sorry for the mis-interpritation.
