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

People choose to be who they want so let them be what they want to be without criticizing them - zquad1234

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.

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

Nerds are the best

I wish I was a 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

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 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. - 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

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

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.

6 Hippie

I identify strongly with hippies. - shiftaltkey

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

Hippies/Hipsters are very misunderstood. - Turkeyasylum

Peace and love ✌️

7 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

8 Satanists

I respect them, they seem like cool people, they just support satan. :/ - 0w0uwu

I don't like them! - CedreticFomento

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

9 Serial Killers

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

They deserve to get whipped by rusty piranhas. - AlphaQ

Not all people are innocent.

Wait what? They kill innocent people they are bad people - LoboMaloso

10 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

The Contenders

11 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

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? - RiverClanRocks

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 Social Justice Warriors Social Justice Warriors

Are they anti norm - Crizz

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

14 Autistic

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 - CrypticMemory

SOME people want us to be number one on the worst types of people list!

They are definitely the disabled

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

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 Sensitive

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

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

17 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

18 Weeaboos
19 Vegans/Vegetarians

Stereotypical vegans suck - Luckys

nah - Crizz

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

20 Muslims

People say Muslims are nothing but ISIS but in reality, most Muslims (including myself) absolutely hate ISIS. - AlphaQ

Alit people think we're terrorists, a lot of terrorists are non-muslim though. - AlphaQ

People who think that Muslims are terrorists are idiots

They're so overly hated...

21 ADHD People
22 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

There are still some internet users who are easily misleading or just hate them regardless. - 0w0uwu

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

I am pro furri fite me - Crizz

23 Atheists

We're hated by overly religious christians just because we don't believe in a giant spirit dude that was told about 2000 years ago by a guy we barely know. - 0w0uwu

Yes because they are not religious or nutheads. - Crizz

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

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

24 Religious People

Toxic in my opinion - Crizz

We the best - Luckys

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)

25 Bronies Bronies

People can like whatever franchise they want.

Why is it nasty for a grown up to like mlp? It does not make you a pedophile lol - Crizz

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

26 Memers

Misunderstood? These people make Sonic's fanbase look like birthday party

Not really.

Toptens: Memers are misunderstood
Modern memers: 🅱ungus liek to get Ebloa - 0w0uwu

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 Gamers

In the real in the real world I'm the loser but in games you're the loser

Gamers rise up

We live in a soiecty

Everyone thinks they're bigoted young people on Xbox Live or something. - shiftaltkey

29 Suicidal People

This honestly she be higher because no one understand what that person is dealing with. Only them. And that's tough. - 0w0uwu

For me as a survivor of suicide, I was misunderstood by my parents and friends. It sucked... still does.

Suicidal people deserves better.

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

30 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

I literally and a rock and pop fan lol - zquad1234

I like pop
Toxic metal fans: Go die - RoseWeasley

I like metal
Toxic Pop / Rap fans : gO DiE!
Believe me, it works both ways. - I80

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?

31 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

1 Comment
32 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

33 Teenagers
34 Mormons

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

Mormons are the most misunderstood people out there

35 Conservatives

Liberals are Superior - Luckys

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

36 Asians
37 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 Pedophiles

Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder so they don't have too much control over it, but I still don't condone it and I still don't consider them misunderstood. They can undergo therapy or treatment to make them less likely to act on their fantasies.

If we're able to dissect and look at their habits then we might be able to prevent these issues. If they were so understood like I80 said, how do you tell if they "like" kids? (Rhetorical question) - 0w0uwu

Nah, they deserve to get beaten up. - AlphaQ

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

39 Bi-polar
40 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.

You mean brats? They hate everything that everyone else likes.

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

41 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.

42 Redheads

How - Luckys

Yes. - Userguy44

43 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

45 Volcels
46 LaVeyan Satanists
47 Blondes

I wish I was a blonde or even a red head.
Brunette is a boring colour lol.

Due to stereotypes I say if you are a blonde and you are smart, you should dye your hair. - crazycat99

I am blonde and one of the smartest in my grade

I just don't get why people automatically assume that someone is dumb just because they are blonde. As a blonde, I take huge offense to that. I have a 140 IQ which is not in any way dumb.

48 Witches Witches

I wanna be one when I'm older and yes they are real but not like the story ones - Crizz

I've met I few people who practice witchcraft, and they only do it for GOOD. - XxembermasterxX

We’re not evil - blackflower

49 Borderlines

Good game the best game.

50 Anime fans

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
