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 extremely ignorant and racist

That's stupiest thing in europe

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.)

2 Metal is All Screaming

I don't know whether this is true or not.

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

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?

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

"It saved my life"
*puts on the I-don't-believe-you expression* Really? - Jasmine21064

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

Not true. Even though lots of my classmates in my math class ( advanced math) are Asian, I know quite a few who are struggling.

4 All Black People Listen to Hip-Hop

Okay. I'm black. I like hip hop (though almost all hip hop songs I like aren't new), but I don't only/mainly listen to that genre. And I pretty much prefer R&B and VGM over it. - Jasmine21064

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'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

There are so many black people who don't. but there are tons of white guys who listen to it.

P. S. most white guys are pretty close minded towards other culture. I should know I'm white. - beasthound

5 All Americans Are Fat

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

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


Elsherkock No. You Shut up!

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.

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

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

V 30 Comments
7 Whites Are Closed-Minded to Other Cultures

(If you a White American) THIS IS TRUE!

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

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

I am white and I love to learn about the world outside and I make an effort to learn about the world as a whole with the resources I have. I love to learn about places like China, Greece, India, and Japan

8 All Muslims are Terrorists


Stupidest stereotype - Puppytart

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

Completely Untrue. I go to a Muslim school and their biggest point there is that we should properly educate the terrorist because they are not following the Quran.

9 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.

Not all Americans are parochial.

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

10 All Teenagers Smoke

I'm a teen. I don't smoke/vape and never plan to do so. - Jasmine21064

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

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

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

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

I am a woman and I prefer to visit places and go on holidays.

12 All Brits are Snobs and are Rich

I'm British and this really annoys me

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

13 Gay Men Act Like Girls

I had a Spanish teacher whom I just founded out that he's gay (he now has a boyfriend.) He doesn't act like a girl at all. - Jasmine21064

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?

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

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

14 Mexicans Are Dumb Drunkards

I know some Mexicans and they don't get drunk and aren't stupid. One of them was even a valedictorian. - Jasmine21064

That's quite mean. But everyone gas their opinions.


Anybody's dumb when he's drunk

Not every mexican is a drunkard

V 16 Comments
15 All Black/African People Have Ebola and Aids

I'm black, and I don't have any relatives who had either one of them. - Jasmine21064

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

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

That is so wrong first of all Ebola at its worst was probably 800,000 (I'm not really sure)

V 10 Comments
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!

17 All Blondes are Dumb

I'm not blonde myself but many of my friends are and they're not dumb! This stereotype is really stupid and rude.

I had a blonde math teacher and she's pretty smart. She rarely makes a mistake in doing math. - Jasmine21064

Not all Blondes are dumb! They're are actually quite smart!

What not true I am not dumb

18 Afghans are Dumb Horse-Riders

What? I'm part Afghan and I've never heard of this before - TwilightKitsune

19 Americans Suck At Everything

I'm an American technically, as I'm African American/Black, and I'm good at plenty of things, such as writing essays, drawing, being nice, etc. - Jasmine21064

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

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.

20 All 12 Year Olds are Immature Brats

Not true they can be nice but the nasty ones are NASTY

I'm 12 and I'm trying to fix my mistakes and be a better person, not a immature brat.

Only the bullies.

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

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

This is TRUE!

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

23 Asians Wear Straw Hats

Asian parents: what u want to do when u grow up
Me: rice farmer

What is this?

24 All Heavy Metal Artists Are Devil Worshipers

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.)

False - Mranonymously

Guys that doesn't say All Heavy metal listeners, it says All heavy metal artists... Like the people that sing the music... Either way it's WRONG

Only the second wave of black metal.

25 Blacks Are Ghetto

I don't even act ghetto. - Jasmine21064

Not all Blacks are from the 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

Hi, I'm Michael Jordan.

27 Every Autistic Person is a Hopeless Manchild

This is one of the most UNTRUE stereotypes I've ever heard. Not even an Autistic person (especially the severe ones) are a hopeless man child. What if Autistic are good at things? Or talented? Or very capable? Who knows!

I have an autistic brother and he's no hopeless manchild. - Jasmine21064

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

28 Piercings and Tattoos Are Goth

I'm not Goth and I wear earrings periodically. - Jasmine21064

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

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

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

29 Men are Sexist

Not true, but more likely.

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

Son we aren't damn

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

I'm blonde...

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.

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"

Most blondes I know are really smart!

32 Emos Cut Themselves

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

Wrong. - Ashes

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.

Hi Sofia Paredes again I'm EMO and not once have I cut myself being emo is being very emotional not suicidal and depressed all the time to the point you cut yourself being emo includes being happy sad frustrated angry furious excited suicidal depressed and nervous not every emo cuts and plus everybody is EMO everybody is emotional at times so... this sterotype is just immature (sorry for any misspelled words)

34 All White Emos Want to Shoot Up Their School

This is more of a Muslim and/or American stereotype than an Emo stereotype!

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

This literally sounds like a south park episode. - htoutlaws2012

36 Mentally Ill People Are Violent

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

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".

37 All Mexicans are Illegal Immigrants

To people thinking this was added by Trump:
Trump probably doesn't know that this site existed. This site isn't very popular, after all. - Jasmine21064

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

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!

Was added by Trump. - Userguy44

38 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!

39 Bronies Are Fat, Sweaty, Unwashed, Autistic Neckbeards That Live In Their Mother's Basement

People who believe this have no life - Jasmine21064

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

Made up by the snobby apartment-dwelling elititists who hate ANY guy who lives in his mothers/parents' basement. 99 percent of the basement-dwellers I've seen or known are clean shaven,fat or thin,and are doing things like taking online college classes,volunteering in their community.working part-time jobs-Hell,one was even planning to join the army! What do the snobby apartment-dwellers do? Nothing but sit on their asses all day spewing hatred for anyone who lives in their parents/mother's basement!

42 All Americans are Rednecks from Texas.

Two things.
1.) most people aren’t rednecks
2.) there’s 49 other states outside of Texas - Randomator

43 Homosexuals Are Devil Worshipers

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

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 )

What? This is a dumb stereotype - Neonco31

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

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

It's true because it is dedicated to all Asian that doing best in life will determine your future.

45 Latinos Are Poor

There are many poor people in the world apart from Latinos.

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!

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

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.

I am Canadian and I haven't left my igloo in 5 days :/

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...
