Top 10 Most Annoying Stereotypes

The Top Ten
1 Arabs are Terrorists

See, this is why I'm not a huge fan of all those Allahu Akbar vine compilations, because I feel like it's just an insult to Muslims and Arabs. Imagine just going to a random place outside of home and people just bully you and call you a terrorist just because your Arabian or Muslim. Gosh, people these days are just so ignorant and they think all these vines are funny, but honestly they're not. This includes all those SpongeBob and Teletubbies etc. I hope people who created those videos pay for their actions later on. It's really NOT funny and terrorism is the most terrible thing in life, worse along the same line as the coronavirus. Whoever made these videos don't care about how these types of people feel and the viewers reacting to the videos. I'm sorry for my offensive language but it's true. It really needs to stop.

2 Americans are Fat

I hate this stereotype. What about the sumo wrestlers in Asia, I'm not trying to sound stereotypical towards Asians, but American isn't the only place with fat people, and there's fat people everywhere.
And just because somebody is chubby, it doesn't mean that they're unhealthy and morbidly obese.

The United States does have a large portion of the population that is obese, more than Germany, for example. However, they are not the fattest country. What's going on down in the South Pacific? A huge obesity epidemic, if my research is correct!

3 Metal is All Screaming

That stereotype is stupid. I listen to plenty of metal songs without screaming. My mom thought it was screaming until both of us went to the Iron Maiden concert. My sisters both think it's screaming (I often play some Metallica CD's in my room and they hate when I do that and they say that all they heard was screaming). Some idiots I talked to on Houseparty thought I was a DEVIL WORSHIPER when I said I like Metallica.

So yeah. That stereotype is false AND stupid.

I Listen to the heavier side of metal, nothing like desthcore or black metal. I can see why people think it's just screaming, but they are saying words, it can Somtimes be hard to tell but they are very strong and amazing words. Just because it's "metal" does not mean it's only screaming, there are plenty of heavy metal bands with AMAZING clean vocals. Try listing to "this fire" by Killswitch Engage. There is screaming and yelling but just listen to the clean vocals.

4 British People are Rich Snobs

This is a stereotype made by America. If you watch they're T.V. shows and movies apparently we have some weird ass accent and drink tea. I hate tea, I speak normally, I'm not rich and there are people I know who are but they're not snobs or stuck up. this stereotype is mostly associated with London which makes no sense because if you go there you will have to search all over the place to find a guy wearing a suit while sipping tea and touching his curly mustache. Even if you go to Buckingham palace you have tourists all around the place not just people who live in the are.

5 British People Drink Tea

I think this might mean something. About British people are rich. They currently have one of the highest currency around the world, and most of them seemed to live pretty good in their home country. And when they move out or travel to other countries, their money would cost a lot more than the average living cost of the people in that country. (Very messy English. Hope you guys understood what I was trying to say).

Just because your rich doesn't mean your a snob @the comment below. The majority of us do love a cuppa though. I'm talking about England though, why are we always grouped with Scotland, wales and northern Ireland. England drinks tea, not Scotland etc.

6 Asians are Good at Math

Not true. Some Asians are good at math but some aren't. Simple as that. Also I have a story. This isn't math related, but one time in 7th grade me and my class were getting are science test grades and there was this one Asian girl named Leying that failed and only got a 61%. She moved away after 7th grade and I'm not sure where she is now.

Ok, so I'm good at math but seriously? Why are people staring at me like I'm a terrorist when I get problems wrong? Is it so wrong for me to make a mistake? We're all human. Everybody makes mistakes. Please stop looking at us like we're some kind of monster. It hurts and irritates our feelings. We're not robots.

7 Teenagers Smoke

Smoking is disgusting. The smell sucks, is gross and from a young age teachers always have taught the class about the bad things smoking does so I am anti-smoking and put off by it.

Whoever thinks this stereotype is true is so retarded. Most parents get stricter with their kids when they grow into teenagers.

I was a teenager back then & I NEVER smoke at all, & if I do my parents would be extremely mad at me!

8 Germans are Nazis

It's just plain stupid and offensive. They were once, but has anyone noticed that Germany was de- Nazied by the allies after the war?! Look at Germany now; low corruption, many a multinational firm, democracy, many science institutes, and I can see that Germany gets on well with the UK (where I am); it's a great country! The whole Nazi stereotype should have been debunked long ago.

This should be number one (in my opinion). I can't believe how many times someone called me a Nazi just because I was a German. My grandma is the nicest person I know annd she is German. People also call me Hitler even though he was Austrian. I hope this stereotype along with the other on this list die out. It's sick, we are all humans and we should be treated equally.

9 Muslims are Terrorists

For the person who commented : Uh, this is already number one. Don't post the same item twice.
The 1st statement is about all arabs being terrrorists and not muslims. Arabs are NOT ALL muslims. Being arab is a nationality whereas being muslim is your religious belief. Both are not the same! So you are caught in a stereotype yourself!

Bull, if a muslim (keyword: if) was a terrorist then they wouldn't be a muslim because it is against the religion.Close minded people think this because arabian terrorists claim to be muslims but they can't be when they are clearly going against what the Qu'ran says.

10 Americans are Stupid

We aren't all stupid. To broaden this out, let's make this "Whites are Stupid." I"m mostly white, and I'm smart. I know a few white people better than me at math. I know a few Asians only in the average. I am not trying to flip the stereotypes, but still, just get rid of them. Oh, and let's take into mind that Einstein was white?

Most of the people claiming this are accusing people from the U.S. of being close-minded and snobby, but they fail to realize they're huge bigots, and are actually worse than homophobes in a lot of ways. Also, just because we don't watch Soccer often doesn't make us bad people.

The Contenders
11 A Woman's Place is In the Home

Oh so many kitchen jokes to pull here, but I know better than to respect the admiration for women there is today as equal (almost).

People who think this are fat, racist men in the South who beat their wives and shoot animals.

We let you in this world, and THIS is where you're telling us to go?!

12 Blondes are Dumb

This is definitely not true, because hair color has nothing to do with your level of intelligence. My brother is blonde and one of the smartest people I know, same for my blonde friend.

A Redhead, a brunette and blonde woman are running from the police, they see a farm nearby and hide in the barn. The redhead hides behind some pigs, the brunette hides behind some horses and the blonde hides behind a sack of potatoes. When the cops enter the barn the start searching for the women they shine a flashlight on the pigs, the redhead says "oink oink". The cops move on and shine the light on the horses. The brunette says "neigh neigh". The cops move on and shine the light on the sack of potatoes. When they shine the light on the potatoes, the blonde says "potato potato"

13 Black People Listen to Hip-Hop

Not all these people or all these people do or hear the same thing! I highly don't believe this, and this a white person talking. For some reason, people say most white guys listen to hip-hop, but to be honest, I hate pop. And people are triggered that I don't hip hop and I'm 14. What is wrong with the world?

Just because we have afros, bell bottoms, hoop earrings, baggy shirts, and some kind of Chicago accent, that make us look like we're hip hop followers according to another stereotype, that doesn't mean we like hip hop! To be honest, that stuff sucks. Or as you think we say, "that's whack yo! " Seriously, you people are crazy!

14 Gay Men Act Like Girls

James Charles probably supports this stereotype. He is gay but acts WAY too feminine for his own good. Plus he manipulated straight and possible asexual guys (the asexual guys part is my speculation). I haven't created that much gay characters, but the ones I did create pretty much act just like straight males, possibly even manlier. The only difference is who they like.

This one is partly true. I've seen gay men at school and college and they all clearly had a girly behavior. There was just one that admitted he was gay and we all thought he was straight all this time, he didn't look girly. I guess the extroverted homosexuals act more girly and the introverted ones have a normal behavior.

15 Younger Siblings are Annoying

I think Disney Channel supports this stereotype. Also this really depends based on how annoying your sibling is.

My younger sibling is great. I don't think I could bare without him.

Hi, I'm an older sibling, and this is absolutely right. In my house, at least. I think annoying is subjective. My younger siblings definitely annoy ME. This is possibly the most truest stereotype. (don't pretend it's not.)

16 Black Africans Have Ebola and AIDS

What even is this? Why? I have an african friend at school and he has NO Ebola, Aids, or other.

I'm pretty sure no one thinks this. But if they do, then they have a sad mind.

Oh I'm sorry is this 2014 all over again? Get outta that nonsense excuse.

17 Americans Suck at Everything

This is seriously untrue. One does not simply "suck at everything." I suck at a fair amount of things (gymnastics, hiking, running, singing) but those aren't everything. According to this stereotype, I'm either a talentless eggplant or secretly Canadian.

Technically I'm A ethnic Polish, but I was born, raised and live in America. I'm great at many things, like hiking, gaming, not being an immature brat at age 12, and a couple other stuff. But I do suck at a lot of stuff, but we all do suck at things.

No. Just no. Who contributed to most of D-Day? Americans. WHO is the only nation considered an empire? America. Even then, there is more. On A 'single individual' perspective, we suck at stuff but we have our things we do well at. I'm excellent at geography, history (to an extent) and hiking.

18 Afghans are Dumb Horse-Riders
19 12 Year Olds are Immature Brats

I wasn't the best example myself, but there were a few people in my grade 6-7 classes who were much better than 95% of my classes now.

Some are. Then there are lonely, suicidal 12 year olds crippled by social anxiety. Source: my life.

I'm 12! I'm more mature and have better manners than most teenagers and some adults. Trust me.

20 Christians Hate Gays

I actually think there's more Christians who are LGBT than you realize. (I am agender pan, my mom's ace, demi father, and bi brother). Also, I have a bird who is pansexual.

Most only disagree with homosexuality and respect gay people. There are homophobic Christians out there who unawarely drill deeper holes into our reputation.

That is totally inaccurate. I'm a Christian and yeah homosexuality creeps me out a little but I try to respect every person I meet

21 Americans are Racist

Some people are. I'm not naming certain presidents here, but you know who you are. Some Americans are super nice. I absolutely despise all of the American stereotypes.

Anyone holds the potential to be racist, no matter what their nationality, race, or gender is.

Not only White Americans are racist but there White Aussies & White British people that are also very racist!

22 Americans are Bad at Cultural Geography

Why? Absolutely why? I'm an American and geography is A passion I have. I study it a lot, though I don't have geography at school. 10 year olds don't learn it for a while, I think.

I'm American and I'm an expert at different cultures. Geography is actually one of my passions.

I won the geography bee at my school in 8th grade and I'm American.

23 White People are Closed-Minded to Other Cultures

I'm a black person, and I honestly find it annoying how every single white person is generalized as people who are ignorant and closed-minded to other cultures. I know, SO many people who aren't even like that. I honestly agree that black lives matter, but gosh, people these days can be so oversensitive that it actually annoys me a lot. I understand how people get offended over all these racist jokes and racist cartoons and stuff, but honestly, generalizing that all white people disrespect other cultures is just so annoying. I hope y'all get what I mean.

24 Asians Wear Straw Hats

I've never heard of this stereotype before.

25 Heavy Metal Artists are Devil Worshipers

Lots of heavy metal artists are not Satanists. Take Tom Araya and Dave Mustaine, they are Catholic and Christian and a part of famous bands (Slayer and Megadeth). I'm a big fan of heavy metal and I'm not a Satanist, I'm an Atheist...

This is completely not true, I'm a kid and I love heavy metal and rock bands do NOT worship the devil, that's ridiculous, if you do think that its true, then seriously... go get a life.

I hate this because even if you only listen to metal music people are like, 'Your an emo/goth. Why aren't you wearing black? Where are your piercings? '
