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

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. - AlphaQ

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

Emos are not bad people If you hate Emo you hate Depressed people If you hate Emo you hate the human race. Everybody has emotions. your just jealous because emos are better than the bullies and the haters.

Leave Emos Alone! At least their not Serial Killers

2 Goth

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

Big tiddy Goth girlfriend please. - DarkBoi-X

It annoys me when people hate on Goths. Goth is a beautiful subculture, they don't worship you know what.

Goths are okay, emos are not. - AlphaQ

3 Nerd

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. - XxembermasterxX

Nerds rule! All the way! I am sure Steve Jobs, Mark Zukerbug and Sunder picchai are all nerds! - srishti15


Bruh yes we play video games, but reading isn’t that bad

4 Punk

First I thought they were people with spiky hair. Now I know who they really are. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

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. - ToptenPizza

5 Introverts

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.

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.

My name - ThatIntrovertedEmo

I'm in a school where you must be social and extroverted, since I'm an autistic introvert, it makes things so much worse

6 Art "Freaks"

Ugh these kinda people who use :3 face and x3 face and I don't trust them and they hard to act like japanese and obsessed with foxes, and other furry animals

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. - ToptenPizza

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! - EliHbk

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.

7 Hippie

I identify strongly with hippies. - shiftaltkey

Hippies/Hipsters are very misunderstood. - Turkeyasylum

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. - ToptenPizza

Peace and love ✌️

8 Rock Fans/Metalheads

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 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. - AlphaQ

Most metalheads are very nice! - Userguy44

Should be first. - Userguy44

They deserve to get whipped by rusty piranhas. - AlphaQ

How is killing innocent people misunderstood? - Userguy44

Poor serial killers. Everyone thinks they are weird just for killing people. :/

I don't like them! - CedreticFomento

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

Usually grouped with emos - yungstirjoey666

11 Preps

Preps are chill people honestly. - AlphaQ

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

It's okay to like popular stuff. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

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! - ToptenPizza

12 Shy People

Needs to be higher - crazycat99

This should be higher. - Userguy44

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

13 Autistic

As much as people think autistic people are a bunch of nerdy weirdos, I think some autistic people can actually be pretty chill. - AlphaQ

I have autism! Is that a bad thing? No! Some autistic people like me are actually really nice in my opinion! I wished people would stop making these autistic jokes, because just because you are autistic doesn't mean you are bad! - UltraLunalaX

I'm a guy on the autism spectrum (also has OCD). Most people make over-generalizations about people with autism as these socially retarded rage monsters, but that just isn't true. I don't get easily offended and I often chuckle at the memes (autistic screeching). Most people don't know that autism actually constitutes a wide spectrum of behaviors and disorder classifications, from high-functioning aspergerish types to the low-functioning severe autism that is often the stereotype. I am very high-functioning and most people wouldn't know I am on the spectrum unless I told them. - shiftaltkey

How am I dangerous

14 Social Justice Warriors Social Justice Warriors

I'm all for liberalism, but sjws deserve it - yungstirjoey666

Misunderstood? I understand them all right. They are anti-white anti-male morons who are crybabies about everything. Stupid libtards... - crazycat99

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. - Rathernotbenamed

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.

15 Band Geeks

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

Spongebob reference? - Userguy44

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? - ToptenPizza

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 - RustyNail

16 Athletes

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 - AlphaQ

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

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. - ToptenPizza

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! - Pony

17 Sensitive

Deserve it, get used to my edgy jokes motherfokers - AlphaQ

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 - darthvadern

Deserve it - DarkBoi-X

18 Vegans/Vegetarians

99% of the vegan stereotype = PETA - SurcaneWolf

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! - IceFoxPlayz

PETA is the reason why people hate vegans - Mranonymously

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.

21 Furries

Furry suits are fine but if you like shipping animals, making animal porn or furry porn and raping animals then you evil. - AlphaQ

Actually, most people are pretty accepting of them now. - InfinateSuperstorm

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. - Rathernotbenamed

Most furries hate yiff as much as non-furries do. - RoseWeasley

22 Atheists

They are little nuisances to society who think they are above everyone else. I'm sick of it! - crazycat99

Some atheists can be good. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Most of us don't want to kill religious people, worship the devil, or burn down churches. We're just rational.

People think if you don't believe in god, you love / believe in the devil. No, atheist means not believing in ANYTHING. Heaven and hell, Jesus and god,etc - RustyNail

23 Religious People

Some atheists can be nice as well too! I misspelled my last comment and didn't get to finish it. Personally, I'm agnostic. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

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

Some religious people are nice. And some athiedts - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Yup... - Rathernotbenamed

People can like whatever franchise they want.

I have been a brony for three years, and people always call me gay just because of being a brony, but I am completely heterosexual. people really need to learn to be less rude.

Everyone thinks bronies are gay and dumb, but we're not. What are you? - sdgeek2003

It's rather unwholesome for grown men to enjoy a T.V. show aimed at little girls. And even more so to derive their identities from being fans of said T.V. show.

They're so overly hated...

Not really.

27 Truth Seekers

Truth seekers are seen as crazy. I'm sorry, since when were YOU the Sanity Police? I'm pretty sure YOU have heard something in YOUR life and thought "Hang on. That doesn't sound right. I'll see if what these people are actually telling the truth. I have a question for you: Are you a liar? If your reply is "No", you're lying right now, because we're living on a ball of rock that's covered from pole to pole with liars. Think NASA and the Greatest Spoof known to Man. They say that humankind made it to the moon. Yet, when I saw pictures of the "Moon Landing", some crosshairs were UNDER the picture instead of over it. Russians discovered a radiation belt that covers the Earth. Also, footage. If you double the speed of the footage of the man walking on the Moon, it'll look like someone running on Earth. So next time before you go nitpicking at a Truth Seeker, maybe reflect on things you heard and think "Hold on. I know how it feels to be lied to about something ...more

28 Gays/Lesbians

Probably one of the most misunderstood groups of all time. They get hate online from homophobes, hate in the real world in Middle-Eastern, Asian, and African countries, hate from different religions, and hate from bigots in general. And for what? Loving someone of the same sex. Love is love people. - shiftaltkey

Debatable. I hate the love is love argument. Cause yknow.. - Crizz

I do think LGBTQ try pushing it on people too much at times, and that it can be a little obtrusive, but at the same time I think its quite necessary with the way people treat them to show some... if not less... levels of bringing it to awareness as being people. - Rathernotbenamed

The bible says it is wrong but they are people too

29 Transgenders

People hate them for having mental illnesses. Let that sink in. - RoseWeasley

Crazycat99 not every single person on the planet is a Christian now go and throw a fit.

People like to think of Transgender people as those Tumblr warriors who post about 74 genders when they're really just normal people changing their gender. - shiftaltkey

My best friend is one and it won't change how I think of them at all! - Rathernotbenamed

30 Suicidal People

Suicidal people deserves better.

I feel very sorry for both suicidal people and their beloved ones (including their pets).

31 Mormons

NO! They know every mkral ever! How would you blame such nice people?

Mormons are the most misunderstood people out there

32 Asians
33 Pop Fans

Fans of the mainstream sound created by the studio producers the lyrics is covering stupid problems. Who thought that it was a good idea to sing about having your car radio stolen its just stupid and a waist of my time pop music is not really covering the subject of misery it just for the most part covers a bunch of little idiotic problems I would rather listen to punk

So annoying people saying "We are being feed, told to like them." "We are forcing them down someone who doesn't like pop's throat." "You want to marry him." "You only like his face" What if we don't want to listen to songs about misery - death, war, pain. Life is stressful enough, why should everyone have to listen to songs about it?

34 2010s Fans

As someone who is a 2010s fan, most of us are bashed for having modern opinions. - AlphaQ

Who the hell is a fan of the 2010s everyone and everything was insulted.

I've never seen anyone who was a 2010s Fan. Still looking for them. - shiftaltkey

They think global warming is a good thing. Screw these kinds ot people

38 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.

Good job to sticking to what you believe in. Trump for 2020. don't let people dictate what you should believe - Patriotsdoodoo

39 Extroverts

I'm not that extroverted myself, but I would like to see more extrovert problems videos. - RoseWeasley

They're seen as loud, obnoxious, trend-setting party animals which is not true! I'm extroverted yet I get very nervous when I have to present or preform in front of a large crowd. I have an introverted friend who doesn't get at all nervous during these types of stuff. I'm also more relaxed and calm then what extroverts are stereotyped to be.


It even says that in their type description. - LordLuke

42 Pedophiles

There is a difference between a pedophile and a child molester. A pedophile is just someone over the age of 16 who is sexually attracted to persons under 13. A child molester, on the other hand, is what you normally mean by pedophile. I am sexually attracted to women, but I am not dangerous to all of them.
If you would like to challenge this, you have a computer dictionary. - I80

Nah, they deserve to get beaten up. - AlphaQ

No. They should be used as target practice. - DarkBoi-X

There is a difference between a normal pedophiles and molesters. A pedophile is just someone who is over age 16, but is sexually attracted to persons under 13. They had no choice to be that way. A child molester on the other hand, is a pedophile, but is the type that does sexually abuse children. If 6IX9INE did not rape children, he would not be in jail because there is nothing wrong with being attracted to children.

If you want to challenge this, then look it up. - I80

43 Hipsters

Hippies: "We bring love and peas! "
Everyone: "Boo! Get out of here! We don't need your hippy talk! "
Hippies: "Please don't hate us! Please don't! We have love deep inside out hearts for each and every one of you, including animals and we bring lot is peas into the world! "
Everyone: "It's peace, NOT PEAS! Get it right! "
Hippies: "I'm sorry everyone! I still love you! We didn't mean to mispronounce our words! Were actually very high on Marijuana and..."
Everyone: "If you were so high, then where's your Marijuana? Why are you annoying? And leave us alone! "
Hippies get things thrown at them and left.

Everyone hates hipsters for some reason. Maybe it's because they're gentrifying neighborhoods or the fact that they find things so "ironic" all the time or because when something goes slightly mainstream, it's selling out. But to be fair, hipsters get too much hate. A lot of the people I know at college are very chill. - shiftaltkey

44 Rock/Metal Musicians

People keep calling my favorite rock/metal artists "satanic". Especially Marilyn Manson. He's never claimed to be satanic! He's just a normal person like everyone else.

45 LaVeyan Satanists
46 Blondes

I wish I was a blonde or even a red head.

Anime haters can be just as bad. - InfinateSuperstorm

Okay guys, I'm one of those people who likes to watch anime but wouldn't consider myself a "fan". I don't go to anime-con or cosplay as a character or read the manga before watching the anime. However, I think anime fans get way too much hate because a minority of annoying Fairy-Tail and SAO fans ruin it for everyone else. - shiftaltkey

A lot of them can be close minded, but some are nice, and whenever I see someone with an anime profile pic they are usually bashed for it (getting called a weeb, people saying they are gay, etc), and it is sickening. - XxembermasterxX
