10 Most Annoying Stereotypes


The Top Ten

1 All Arabs Are Terrorists

Run for your lives! It's the terrors of the terrorists! Wait! False alarm!

This is the most racist, idiotic one yet. I still can't believe people are mentally retarded enough to believe this. You would know if you were just having a nice walk in broad daylight with a Muslim friend, and some Christian moron yells "terrorist! " In our direction.
Firstly, each religion has both good AND bad in it. (Had to capitalize the "and" just in case a physco anti-Muslim idiot was reading this so they could process the information into their uneducated brain.)

This is extremely ignorant and racist

2 Metal is All Screaming

This isn't a stereotype this is just a fact - LilPumpTheGod

I'm not a metalhead but god I hate that stereotype. - 21merowitzn

Metal is amazing. It saved my life. Like MIW.

No, metal is deep and meaningful. Why does society accept a song with a woman calling a person a stupid hoe and think metal songs about staying strong and carrying on are evil and satanic?

3 Asians Are Good at Math

Some of them are slow and not good at it.

The person I know that's best at math is Indian

I'm Asian and my math is so bad. What makes people think that all Asians are smart? Is there any proof that Asians are good at Math than others? It just depends on how the students understand and work hard, that's it!

One answer for that stereotype could probably the upbringing of children from many Asian families. - PhoenixAura81

I'm Asian and I struggled in my college statistics math class.

4 All Black People Listen to Hip-Hop

I'm black and I don't like any of that stuff, I listen to pop like Ariana Grande, Zendaya, Demi lovato, Katy Perry, and all the other pop singers, and I don't like fried chicken my favorite is ice cream

Don't really like your music taste, but I totally agree with the rest of it. - peaceswagtv

I don't like hip-hop music and I'm black

The color of your skin doesn't Determine what type of music you listen to.

I'm black and I listen to rock, its super annoying cause people will be like "Why do you listen to that music" um its also music like all the other genres jeezz. - Hurricane6277

5 All Americans Are Fat

Gentleman Johnathan People have different opinions. Don't tell me to shut up you ignorant jerk!

Not all Americans are fat. Some are quite fit and healthy.


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.

6 Germans Are Nazi's

I have friend who's ancestors were German if you consider her a Nazi then you have consider me a Nazi too by the way I'm Asian. I dare anyone to challenge that has the stupidity to so - GentlemanJonathan

Stereotypes can still happen in 2019, but not as worst as back in the old days.

Why would anyone, in 2019, think that except little kids?

That's a lie. Hitler makes all German people look bad!

7 Whites Are Closed-Minded to Other Cultures

It is so annoying how people think that! I love other countries and cultures!

I'm a white (German to be precise), and I am an anthropologist that visits numerous countries and countless people.

I love other cultures! - MeowMix

I respect most countries, but not those who hurt our own land intentionally. - htoutlaws2012

I am white and I have lived in 3 different countries all of which were very cultural and accepting to others cultural differences

8 All Muslims are Terrorists

Yep. Dat is TRUE!

Stupidest stereotype - Puppytart

I'm Muslim, and the only terror I spread is laughter... Get it? Just me? Anyone? Someone?...ok...

Maybe there terrorizing us because we terrorized them with the Crusades. think about that

9 All Teenagers Smoke

I don't and ima teen

Since this site seems to mostly teens, like me, it's hard people actually believe this. - Solacress

I had vaping presation only 13% of teens smoke that means a MAJORITY of teens choose not to smoke in including myself. I'm actually aginst smoking and give a big thumbs down correction 2 big thumbs down - GentlemanJonathan

We are NON smokers!

10 All Americans Are Stupid

Factually the smartest country ever is a load of hogwash. I met an American university student who'd never heard of Indonesia, let alone know where it's situated. Americans are so parochial and if you don't know what parochial means, look it up.

I'm NOT American myself but NOT all Americans are stupid, they're smart, educated, open minded to other cultures and maybe religions, invented most things and sometimes outspoken.

Lol americans might not have the best education system in the world but we are FACTUALLY the smartest country ever

Well, in my area, this is...sort of true? It sometimes feels like I'm the only one who is decently intelligent (only decently). Sure, that may be because I go to a school with kids who either have anger issues or whose minds are totally destroyed.

The Contenders

11 A Woman's Place is In the Home

Sofia Paredes not true at all women are very important and are just as strong and smart as men and women are just as brave they stood up for their rights to be treated like men to be equal to not be treated like nothing without women who will populate the earth without women lots of things wouldn't be here today

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). - htoutlaws2012

Anyone's place is in the home

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

12 Gay Men Act Like Girls

No we do not, we carry a lot of SASS but that doesn't mean we're girls! You turkeys!

A lot of gay men do act like girls and talk like them but just not all of them. Is it just a natural thing to call people girrl in a valley girl voice or just like instinct like when you move to another country and start speaking like them?

Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Billie Joe Armstrong and Rob Halford are either Gay or Bisexual

Not true. I live with gay men and they act twice as manly as a normal man - AnonymousChick

13 All Brits are Snobs and are Rich

Some British people are very nice.

It's a shame people take the mick out of Britain so much. It's a brilliant country, and I'm sure every country is brilliant in its own way. - Rocko

I am a proud American. The British are not snobs and rich if they were rich they would buy the world. Why can't everyone be happy? We have all something special. Don't take anger out on another country

We're not all snobs. Don't believe a word these Americans spout. I'm from Kensington, which is in London, and yes the majority of us earn around 120,000 a year doesn't mean we're snobs. Not everyone is rich, some areas, such as Birmingham, brixton and generally up north are quite poor. Also the Scottish, northern Irish and the welsh aren't that rich at all.

Not every mexican is a drunkard

I am a foreigner in mexico I ve spent 8 years in mexico and I agree


Anybody's dumb when he's drunk

15 All Black/African People Have Ebola and Aids

That's rude and stupid. Not everywhere in Africa has Ebola.

What the hell is wrong with humans? - Puppytart

Oh I'm sorry is this 2014 all over again? Get outta that nonsense excuse. - htoutlaws2012

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

16 All British People Drink Tea and are Rich

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).

I'm hispanic but

Totally untrue like another nation England has its fair share of rich snobs and tea lovers I am British and I like coffee and I am middle class also many people in the UK aren't rich and powerful just ordinary people like you and me and the rest of the world

What the heck?!? I have a british friend, and she's not rich, she's definitely not a snob, and she HATES tea!

19 Americans Suck At Everything

I'm not American myself, but Americans don't suck at everything.

We have the best Basketball Players, Football Players, the best military (at times), best Leaders (Sometimes), Most Diversity. And theirs some more - 2storm

No, that's me - SpectralOwl

I'm guessing a country with pure hatred, very well then carry on the rant when you comeback to me. - htoutlaws2012

20 All 12 Year Olds are Immature Brats

Only the bullies.

I disagree However, it applies for about 40% of them

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. - 3DG20

21 All Americans Are Bad At Cultural Geography

That is half true.

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

22 All Americans are Racist

As a non American, I say that Americans are not really that racist at all.

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. - SansTheComic

No... All racist people are racist

One racist American is the president not saying his name but I'm talking about the president with the bad hair whose father gave him a small loan of a million dollars - Lunala

You've been watching too much One Piece (though I'm unsure if Luffy is Asian? ) - GlassweighanCountess

What is this?

I've never heard of this stereotype before. - LordOfTheOnionRings

24 All Heavy Metal Artists Are Devil Worshipers

False - Mranonymously

Just because we love metal doesn't mean that we're "devil worshipers." Have you ever once looked at the lyrics to metal and rock songs? They are deep and give you a new, more open perspective on life. (At least to me.)

90% of this site are not exactly worship satan nor are they of an atheists although there might be some who actually are, but don't worship there own would that person be the most neutral metalhead you ever known? - htoutlaws2012

Skillet is Christian. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

25 Blacks Are Ghetto

Ugh - Puppytart

No, no on all accounts. I've had black friends that are far away from being "ghetto."

This is the most stupid thing I've ever heard, people who say this are redneck people in Ohio that can't afford gum, that are 1,000 pounds.

I'm black and I'm not even ghetto. I'm in a middle clas family and I don't speak, act, or even have that ghetto edge in my voice. I usually stay away from these kids in my school, because all they talk about is dating and Instagram. Plus my real name is not ghetto, and some people think its almost a white person type name. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I'm short - Carri796

Hi, I'm Michael Jordan.

Stop it. Get some help. - xandermartin98

27 Every Autistic Person is a Hopeless Manchild

That is completely wrong! People who have low functioning or high functioning autism are like any other human being. They are actually really successful like Albert Einstein for example.

Lots of people with autism are actually really intelligent. - PhoenixAura81

I have Autism, and I'm a girl.

This one really does hurt. There's absolutely nothing wrong with having Autism. It's a shame people just don't understand what they're saying. - Rocko

28 Piercings and Tattoos Are Goth

Who even came up with this stereotype? I know many people with piercings and tattoos, and very few of them are even remotely close to being goth, plus there are people who are goth that don’t have either. - 3DG20

Can't really argue with this honestly, I don't see those who like pop music having either of these facial looks to them. - htoutlaws2012

Sofia Paredes this also isn't true anybody can have a tattoo or a piercing that doesn't mean that they're goth I am GOTH and there are people who are goth and don't have any tattoos or piercings having those things done doesn't mean you're goth being goth is enjoying skulls the color black beliving in ghosts demons spirits so if you don't know what it is don't say you do

Look, I'm Goth and I don't have any tattoos NOR piercings whatsoever.

29 Men are Sexist

Believing this stupid stereotype proves that you yourself are a sexist. - 3DG20

Son we aren't damn

I know plenty of men who are NOT sexist and this stereotype is sooo stupid

I am a woman and I find this stereotype to be extremely annoying. Not all men are terrible just because you believe that they think that they are better than you.

30 Nintendo is for Little Kids

Some timeless classics are created by Nintendo. I never thought it was kids only. - PhoenixAura81

I'm 23 and I love pokemon. I've never thought nintendo is only for kids.

I’m 26 and I like to play Nintendo

31 Blondes Are Stupid and Ditzy

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"

I totally agree, this is a very common stereotype and it's just so mean, like the colour of your hair defines who you are.

This is just stupid. I'm blonde and I'm one of the smartest people in my class.

Most blondes I know are really smart!

32 Emos Cut Themselves

Wrong. - Ashes

Emo, depression, and suicidal are all different.

Emo= Sensitive, grumpy at times, bit sad

Depressed= Sad, hates self, cries

Suicidal = cuts, has suicidal thoughts.

THERE now the world know a bit about those stages - AnonymousChick

Emo is liking music in the emo genre and being in touch with your emotions. People view emos as outcasts and depressed losers but they have a heart and are usually the kindest people alive so anyone who discriminates emos are stupid.

Suicidal thoughts huh... - htoutlaws2012

33 All Americans are Uncultured

I'm not American myself but I'm sure that there a most Americans that are cultured.

34 All White Emos Want to Shoot Up Their School

This literally sounds like a south park episode. - htoutlaws2012

Why is coming from the South Park people. I went to school with an emo person and they liked the school

My friend is emo but she likes the school and most of the people, she just doesn't like the mean and snotty popular girls

You know, I could see where most people who say this are coming from.

35 Mentally Ill People Are Violent

Mentally Ill people are more often victims of violence and abuse than causing violence. - Rue

I have schizoid personality disorder and I'm not even violent... - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Actually Mentally Ill people tend to get bullied and harassed by others because of what they have/lack - Ohno

Okay, Aran Ryan seems mentally ill, and he's totally violent, but that's probably more the "Fighting Irish".

36 French People Are Cowards

Ever heard of Joan of Arc? Would you call her that.

Annoying and completely false. France's military history is actually pretty impressive and I should remind people that many military terms (Colonel, Admiral, Regiment, Battalion...) are derived from French and that America gained her independence because of French support. - WatcheroftheSkies

I'm not even French and I don't know why this stereotype makes me angry, but it just does. I've read a lot of French history, and you should see the good they've done for other countries! How are they cowards?!

French people are not cowards. Hell they fought more wars than the USA!

37 All Mexicans are Illegal Immigrants

Are you kidding me. Are you really kidding with me?! People, when given the chance to support their family, are even to try to have a better life quality, they need to sacrifice something. This case, it's what? Safety, hunger, peace, etc! You need to learn both perspective and then make your choice. I know, I know. I would be angry *sort of* if illegal people enter and make a bad reputation. But that's some of the people! Not all Mexicans are drunk! Not all Mexicans are drug lords. Not all Mexicans are useless. Sure, we may have a bad government an some bad people, but this is just ridiculous. Imagine you being poor, and USA is like a paradise for you to earn a job and support both you and your family's life. You'll obviously go there no? Same thing. Don't be ignorant! See things both perspectives! Please. You're ruining many people's lives. They are risking their lives to try to live better while you and I are leisurely living in our homes without a care in the world! Please, please, ...more

Was added by Trump. - Userguy44

Donald Trump probably made this list and he agrees with every one of these stereotypes. He's racist, evil, and plagues our world. GET RID OF HIM!

No brony stereotypes apply to me, and I'm a brony.

There are good bronies if you din't know - Mranonymously

And you haters say they have no life yet you're making fun of them all along. I'd laugh at you for liking Gravity Falls - Neonco31

43 Homosexuals Are Devil Worshipers

I'm Christian and a ally ( lgbt lover ). This is stupid in my opinion ( I make ocs and lots of them are homo and lgbt so... Yeah )

Whoever thinks this is true is Christian or Catholic because being gay or lesbian is against their religion - Ohno

Which is a hilarious ridiculous statement, I mean I know Christians and all, but seriously? I never knew the deep spawn of hell could possess such sissy talking people for their own. As one says ''BY THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! '' - htoutlaws2012

What? This is a dumb stereotype - Neonco31

44 Asians Are the Model Race

That stereotype is very weird!

... I'm not even sure how this was developed. I think that humans in general are the model race. After the dolphins and the white mice, of course.

Asian is not a race. Does this mean south-east Asia with countries like China, Taiwan, Japan. North with Russia. West with countries like Turkey, India, Pakistan. Its not clear at all. - StarsNSand

By ''model race'' what do we refer it to exactly actual beauties, or actual hard working model manufacturers? - htoutlaws2012

I'm not sure, but I saw on TV (like 1 year ago) that the richest person of the world is latin (maybe I'm wrong). - rock2metal

I have a lot more money than a majority of my white friends, thankyouverymuch! It is annoying how disrespectful some people can be to a specific race just because they can. What's even worse it that people either lave to make sure to be the exact opposite of the stereotypes or else they're just further enforcing it!

Rock2metal you are right. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Sofia Paredes again This isn't true latinos aren't poor some are filthy rich some don't have as much money and yes some are on the street but anybody can be poor not just latinos

47 Canadians live in igloos

In a survival situation, maybe, most Canadians live in houses like in the US, and some Canadians who live remote and/or off the grid, would settle for something as small as a log cabin

No I no joke thought everyone in Alaska lived in igloos for the longest time - Carri796

I'm from western Canada so I don't say eh like the eastern people. But I live inside a house and did even back when I lived in the Yukon.

48 Native Americans Are Gamblers

I'm Native American and have even worked at a casino while in college. But I hate gambling, I have zero interest in it. I find gambling dull, boring and a waste of money. Although I do have family members who take it a bit too seriously laugh out loud anyways, the most common race of people who frequent casinos are whit people and old people but mostly white old people are the majority at casinos. I don't mind though, I'd rather have white people blow all their money at our casino anyways JK

Well in defense they do own the Casino's. - htoutlaws2012

I thought the stereotype was that Native Americans are stoic and unfeeling.

Well they sure gambled on European settlers and that ended in smallpox...
