Top Ten Most Misunderstood Types of People

People unfairly stereotyped, it's irritating to me. We should all accept each other.

The Top Ten

1 Emos

Emo is a subculture revolving around the music itself. Of course not all emos are depressed; they admire the music, so just let them listen to it.

People choose to be who they want so let them be what they want to be without criticizing them

Most of them deserve it, they're generally an ungrateful bunch of brats who whine about small problems when people in poorer countries are dealing with worse.

I think emos don't understand themselves or even the world around them.

2 Nerd

I am a nerd, and I don't really have any other comments I just wanted to say that, which is why my name on here is "scienceLover10"

have you heard of lepton and gherlin they help control how much food you eat. it is produced by fat and therefore if your body produces none you always think you are starving and you eat to much and become obese. NERDS RULE PEPOLE

You nerd haters can hate all you want, but wait for them to get a good job while your stuck working in McDonalds with a one bedroom apartment.

Nerds are very smart, they won't end up flipping burgers, but actually changing the world, inventing something. They study, and don't party all the time.

3 Goth

I'm not a goth, but I've always loved this subculture. The fashion, the music and the idea of seeing beauty through the darkness still speak to me to this day. The majority of stereotypes, however, were clearly off. Not all goths are depressed. Not all goths are satanists. Again, the subculture mainly revolves around the music, not personality nor religion.

Everyone thinks we're Satanists, school shooters or whiny little toddlers

Goth fashion is the expression of oneself through the color black. I find that very intriguing. I wear mostly black too, but that's just because I'm too lazy to deal with fashion, and there's almost no way of messing up black...

Gothics are not depressed people who practice worshipping Satan. As a Goth, people have asked me,"If you are Goth, then how are you Christian? " And "How are you still alive, since you were Goth I though you committed suicide". Comments like those hurt me. The real meaning of Gothic culture is to find beauty where others typically don't. Gothic Culture is beautiful, where as for some Goths, Black is more of a formal wear. And now with religion,they are classified to be Satan worshippers is what people tell others. But they are all different religions.

4 Introverts

I am an introvert, and I can definitely see the miss conceptions. Let me clear things up, just because I spend most of my time alone, it doesn't mean I'm lonely. Also you probably heard the description that at parties our energy drains, and after some time talking to and hanging out with other people, we need sometime to "recharge" and I just want to say that that description is entirely accurate.

If you don't like going out or you're pretty quiet, people might tell you to change. But don't change who you are. I'm an introvert and I love it.

American society is not safe for these people. I'm an introvert, and I'm thought of as boring, shy, rude, and even prideful just for either wanting solitude or just not showing emotion. True that America can be annoying because all it cares about is loud parties and talking.

This is true. The difference between introverts and extroverts is that extroverts get energy from being around people while introverts get energy from being by themselves. It doesn't mean that all introverts hate people and want to be alone all the time. They just need their space. Some people find this rude or think that the person is being shy. But, most of the time, that isn't the case.

5 Conservatives

I mean we have serial killers on this list, so we might as well have Conservatives right?... As a Conservative I am nowhere near as hateful or as crazy as the media says I am, and without a doubt people judge me before they even meet me. Even you reading this right now, you're probably judging me. Everyone here saying that they are misunderstood should know exactly how I feel. Even if I disagree with you, I'll still defend to my death that you have a right to say it. Not everyone gets along or agrees, I understand that, and that's why life is so amazing...we should appreciate our different opinions instead of trying to shut each other out. I feel like this is going to fall on deaf ears but I'll always be me.

I don't really hate people for being conservative, I just hate trump supporters. I know they are not the same but I don't understand why you would support him. Out of everybody, you go for the biggest narcissistic self-centered lunatic. Everyone saw him as a joke and he practically is. I understand it's whatever you think, and I have no control over that. I'm just here to ask why him? - 0w0uwu

Liberals are Superior

6 Punk

Punk was a movement going against what was mainstream, punk music sings about things like unpopular views on politics. It is about being yourself, even if it isn't "perfect" in society's eyes.

First I thought they were people with spiky hair. Now I know who they really are.

One of the most misunderstood people

7 Religious People

There are many people giving religion a bad image. And now we are misunderstood. That hurts me. The bad religious people don't realize that Jesus gave a choice for us to believe or not. As a Christian, I have to say, what you believe, what you believe! But we are misunderstood and that is sad.

It's rare to find an atheist who genuinely respects a religious person and understands why they believe what they believe. That's asking for too much though.

Well I can say that as an atheist I love the study of religion and the prospects of it. Most atheists I know really just don't care about religion whatsoever, but that doesn't mean they disrespect it. Most people don't take kindly to those who disrespect another's beliefs and there are only a few that are disrespectful that make the entire crowd seem that way as well. - TheYaoiTitanic

Some atheists can be nice as well too! I misspelled my last comment and didn't get to finish it. Personally, I'm agnostic.

Seriously, I've been looking all over the internet and there were so many people that hate christians. (The end is near)

8 Hippie

What hippies desire is for world peace, and the enviorment to be fixed. They are brave enough to protest against what they don't like. They are very kind people, and want the best for everybody.

Hippies/Hipsters are very misunderstood.

I identify strongly with hippies.

Peace and love ✌️

9 Art "Freaks"

Being artistic ≠ being freaky. I don't get why anyone with any sort of vision gets shunned, and constantly criticized for being different, or having a little thing called creativity, and stereotyped as starving weirdos.

I know too many of these people though, not that they are bad. Just that every girl I know has drawn enough anime girls that she could make a whole art blog website!

alternative title for this: DEVIANTART ARTISTS

Because the U.S. is filled with too many idiot conformist sheeple useless eaters that only care about stupid sports and vulgar disgusting consumerist materialism.

10 Serial Killers

EXCUSE ME WHAT?! These guys kill children, and innocent people. Get these guys off the list, and into a torture cell!

Wait what? They kill innocent people they are bad people

Not all killers a necessary bad in my opinion but I don't support killing obviously.

serial killers are not killers by choice. they become serial killers because of their parents, or their tragedies.

The Newcomers


The Contenders

11 Satanists

People hate atheists more than Satanists which makes no sense. How are people who don't believe in gods worse than devil worshippers?

they make videos of them killing people for satan around the internet, what is wrong with them?

I respect them, they seem like cool people, they just support satan. :/

The Church of Satan is not a religious group. They're an activist group.

12 Shy People

This should be higher.

Needs to be higher

Why are people so scared of us? :( We can't be that creepy.

13 Autistic

No, vaccines don't cause autism. Symptoms usually don't show until at least a year later.
And don't forget that Albert Einstein was very smart and he had autism. The majority of people I've met with autism are also quite smart so I never understood why some people see autistic people as dumb and use autism as an insult.

I have Autism, and others bully me for having Autism. I also get bullied by other Autistic people because they have nothing better to do.

I am Autistic, and it's admittedly confusing to understand even for me because it is such a huge spectrum of how much it affects people, and and what the exact symptoms you have are. Basically no two Autistic people are the same.

Let's take a look. People often misunderstand autistic people, thinking that they're dumb, and they start hating on them. Autistic people are just smarter than most people in exchange for social skills, if I am correct. It's OK to misunderstand something, but you shouldn't hate on people with it. Hope that clears things up a little

You are 100% correct, my gorgeous cousin who is Autistic is very intelligent, however he is unfortunately restricted from most things, and people misunderstand how much of a beauty he is and how intelligent he is.

14 Weeaboos

say senpai again, I dare you, I double dare you.
Weaboos are so annoying and retarded at the same time. they can't respect weaboo hater's opinions, and they always think they are cute, while being a weaboo only makes them look like a 17-year-old with a mind of a 6-year-old.

15 Rock Fans/Metalheads

I love rock and metal, and the fact that some people think that metal is for worshipping the devil... actually didn't anger me at all because the stereotype wasn't really a big deal (no I don't support or worship Satan in any way). However, it's horrible how some people have used metal as a scapegoat in the past without proper reasoning. Using music as a scapegoat in general is just ridiculous and doesn't excuse anything or anyone. I haven't really seen much bashing towards rock. If anything, the majority of people I know love it.

Should be number 4 to behind Conservatives, Religious People, and Autistic people. I am a member of all of these groups except the last one, and I am a victim of misunderstanding them. Just because I'm a metalhead doesn't mean I'm a sunset strip gangbanger and drug taking satanist. I don't hate gays, I hate the sin. I don't hate liberals, in fact I am friends with many, I hate the ideology. In fact, I don't really hate anybody. I find conservatism and religious societies to be more tolerant, not less. Ask a real conservative whether they hate gays or not. Ask a metalhead how many goats they've sacrificed, or what religion they are. Ask autistic people whether they understand you or not. The answers may surprise you.

I'm a serious rock/heavy metal fan and do I look like a person who would do drugs? Absol-utley not! Why doesn't this stereotype die in a fire already?

I disagree a little bit, most because of a lot of the toxic metalhead I've encountered. They're not as bad as Classic rock fans though.

16 Preps

It is fine being a prep, but seriously listen to other music besides modern pop yuck.

Preps are chill people honestly.

It's okay to like popular stuff.

Some preps actually like stuff like Starbucks, Facebook, fashion, pop music, etc. But the ever-growing army of hipsters needs to make sure they are made fun of for it. Ew, you like something mainstream, f u!

17 Soundcloud Rappers

I don't see the massive hate they get. I know their lyrics don't have quality but it's not atrocious or anything. Their beats are good and rap is more than just lyrics.

18 Band Geeks

Band Geeks are great because they can play the mayonnaise and horse radish very well.

What is so socially unacceptable about being able to play an instrument? In the media they are teased for not playing good. In reality, we work as hard as we can, learning very complicated peices, and understanding the notes and blending sounds. We practice for an hour, if you think it takes so little work, why don't you try it?

This society is stupid, they don't like them cause the instruments. But people want to be a rock star,. They want to play guitar, bass guitar, drums, electronic things. People think that its lame, now I don't like band, I'm not in it, but I do play guitar

It's much harder than you think it is. Go ahead, pick up an instrument and sight read a piece of music.


It even says that in their type description.

20 Vegans/Vegetarians

Normally around people they treat me normally UNTIL they offer me meat and I politely tell them I am a vegetarian. First they mistake me for a vegan which I don't mind, but I do correct them, then they start talking about all the "good" things I am missing out; an example: "so you don't eat beef jerky!? What about chicken noodle soup? Roast beef, turkey, ham?! " then tell me how crazy I am and laugh. Usually I don't care but it's almost every person who cannot except that I am not like them and give me stupid nicknames that so offended me, people I am not very close to buy me "I am a proud meat eater" shirts knowing I don't eat meat.
Most people don't understand why I don't eat meat and when I explain how I feel better NOT eating meat they tell me I am wrong, but anyways it really sucks how people who eat meat cannot accept the choices I and many others make. Sometimes people just say "cool" and move on which is nice, but I hate explaining myself to people about my eating habits.

The only vegans/Vegetarians out there that are bad is PETA. Even though PETA supports veganism, ( or something ) they make vegans and vegetarians look bad. How ironic!

PETA is the reason why people hate vegans

99% of the vegan stereotype = PETA

21 Sensitive

I'm sensitive but I live on edgy jokes and memes. I'm not hypersensitive, though.

I get it some sensitive people can be annoying, but going nicer on them is all you have to do to avoid hate from them, it's as simple as that, if you chosed to be harsh towards someone sensitive, then it's not entirely their fault

Deserve it, get used to my edgy jokes motherfokers

22 Christians

The idea of Christianity is to love people. Not everyone gets that. It includes all people- LGBTQ, other religions, other backgrounds. It isn't reading an ancient book and forcing it onto people, or it shouldn't be. It is loving people and doing good- serving and, one may say, saving others. Those that believe in God aren't idiots and don't reject science- they believe in something more that made this magical thing we call 'life'. Thank you. God bless!

Agreed ; most Christians, including myself are good people. - Danteem

As a christian I agree, but at the same time there a lot of people who aren't really Christians in knowing god and following his will that use the bible for negative purposes and to justify their actions by taking things out of context.

I'm not religious but I think a lot of people believe that Christians are a bunch of homophobic right wing zealots or something.

23 Athletes

Athletes must wear the same label as jocks, when they have many differences:

Jocks- bullies who show little ability for their sport, believe what they play is the only sport, and have no brains.

Athletes- all around athletic people who have passion for sports and also keep up with their school work. They enjoy being fit and active.

Jocks are overhated, if I was real, not all jocks I know are over 6 foot and muscular, I'm 5'4 and boney and a parkour athlete moterfokers,i mean some of us have big egos and stuff but yea a lot are humble too chill yall

My roommate is an athlete and he's one of the most humble and innocent people ever.

Believe it or not, as much as I hate jocks, I am fine with athletic people. I even know someone who is athletic, yet he hates jocks!

24 Furries

These are the most misunderstanding peoples ever, they are very soft and I don't understand why people hate this dumbly. They are very great

I am not a furry myself, but I voted for it because I watched Shane Dawson's video interviewing one.

Somebody at my school literally said he would murder all furries

Really there are two sides of this. As I furry I can definitely confirm there are some nasty things that go along with this on the dark web, but the rest of the fandom is not all like that! People just focus too much on just the bad part and don't care to see that its not all bad and there is a lot of really negative attitudes towards the furies who don't get into the sexual stuff, even if they never did anything wrong and are really often quite harmless.

25 Social Justice Warriors

Conservatives get triggered much more easily than liberals. Go to any YouTube video with a joke about race, and you'll see triggered conservatives in the comments sections, not liberals.

Again... sometimes people take it too far and I think there are some issues that are over presented and sometimes they go attack you for every little thing, but I is a great thing when it is focused on really important issues.

Misunderstood? I understand them all right. They are anti-white anti-male morons who are crybabies about everything. Stupid libtards...

Also they treat all white males like they are working for Hitlers' ghost or something dumb like that.
