10 Most Annoying Stereotypes

The Top Ten

All Arabs Are Terrorists

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.)

"and some Christian moron yells "terrorist! " in our direction".

Yet another stereotype. Good job, fighting against one stereotype in one sentence and then approve of another in the next sentence. Real smart...

Ugh, I really hate it when people say that Muslims or arabs are terrorists, it really gets me mad. Why can't people understand that Muslims are good people? Anyway, terrorists like isis aren't even considered Muslims because true Muslims would never kill people or blow up buildings.

After 9/11, this stereotype spawned. I find it racist and VERY wrong. Osama Bin Laden was a terrorist, ISIS are terrorists, and Al-Qaeda is a terrorist group, but that doesn't mean ALL Arabs are bad, mad, murderous, and sick terroristic people. I may not be Arab, but come on! Stop it!

I love how everyone is saying examples of why this is wrong. So what, you're the exception. If you didn't want people to think of these thing don't portray them to be that way. There's a reason rap was dominated by black people. That's how culture is.

Metal is All Screaming

That stereotype is stupid. I listen to plenty of metal songs without screaming. My mom thought it was screaming until both of us went to the Iron Maiden concert. My sisters both think it’s screaming (I often play some Metallica CD’s in my room and they hate when I do that and they say that all they heard was screaming). Some idiots I talked to on Houseparty thought I was a DEVIL WORSHIPER when I said I like Metallica.

So yeah. That stereotype is false AND stupid.

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?

Of course it's not true. And why people enjoy screams from Robert Plant, Steven Tyler, or The Beatles, but when a metal singer does a really great scream, non-metal fans think it's not good?

No, not all metal is screaming, but it probably seems that way to your elders, because it's "rebellious". In WHAT way is any music rebellious?

Asians Are Good at Math

I know another one-"Koreans are evil, no matter what." Why do people make this horrible stereotype? It's only North Korea. South Korean people are really nice. I once saw a comment saying, "Most users don't eat kittens because they aren't Korean." Excuse me? Only North Koreans do that trash anyway, and they can't go on TTT! (Remember their computers are propaganda machines? )

Ok, so I'm good at math but seriously? Why are people staring at me like I'm a terrorist when I get problems wrong? Is it so wrong for me to make a mistake? We're all human. Everybody makes mistakes. Please stop looking at us like we're some kind of monster. It hurts and irritates our feelings. We're not robots.

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.

I'm Filipino, yes, I'm good at maths but...seriously?! What exactly is its purpose in our jobs! God, I hate maths...and my classmates even ditch their scores during math exams.

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.

Not all these people or all these people do or hear the same thing! I highly don't believe this, and this a white person talking. For some reason, people say most white guys listen to hip-hop, but to be honest, I hate pop. And people are triggered that I don't hip hop and I'm 14. What is wrong with the world?

Just because we have afros, bell bottoms, hoop earrings, baggy shirts, and some kind of Chicago accent, that make us look like we're hip hop followers according to another stereotype, that doesn't mean we like hip hop! To be honest, that stuff sucks. Or as you think we say, "that's whack yo! " Seriously, you people are crazy!

Such a filthy lie! I HATE rap, hip hop, and ghetto stuff in general. I'm a Directioner, love Taylor Swift, and love Twenty One Pilots, too. Once my friend said "I bet your a white girl on the inside". That was so racist and I just wanted to slap her!

All Americans Are Fat

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.

The United States does have a large portion of the population that is obese, more than Germany, for example. However, they are not the fattest country. What's going on down in the South Pacific? A huge obesity epidemic, if my research is correct!

This is so annoying people always assume "fat" when the hear the word America. There are fat people everywhere not just in America. I don't like burgers I hate them so burgers are not an "American food" I'm really skinny actually so yeah

Well, this is kind of true, actually. If over 40% of your population is obese, then I think that it would be good enough to consider this stereotype true. Plus, who likes the US? It's a horrible country anyways, and it deserves to be mocked.

I sadly have to say that you are correct, America is one of the most overweight nations in the world. Think of it as a classroom:

Japan: The student who tries hard and doesn't give up when it is hard.

America: The kid who thinks he's the best but really isn't, who shows off all the time.

No offense, but Japanese are smarter because teachers in Japan encourage not giving up. Americans tend to think we are always the best country, even though pretty much every country, like every luxury car, has more problems than you think.

Germans are Nazis

It's just plain stupid and offensive. They were once, but has anyone noticed that Germany was de- Nazied by the allies after the war?! Look at Germany now; low corruption, many a multinational firm, democracy, many science institutes, and I can see that Germany gets on well with the UK (where I am); it's a great country! The whole Nazi stereotype should have been debunked long ago.

This should be number one (in my opinion). I can't believe how many times someone called me a Nazi just because I was a German. My grandma is the nicest person I know annd she is German. People also call me Hitler even though he was Austrian. I hope this stereotype along with the other on this list die out. It's sick, we are all humans and we should be treated equally.

I can't stand how Hitler, one man out of a nation, ruined the entire reputation of that nation by brainwashing them. News flash to the world. Just because hitter was a horrible person doesn't mean that his entire country should share the blame.

This stereotype is one of the worst I have ever seen. I have a classmate who is German, and he despises the Nazis. Just because one person, who was the world's biggest jerk, was a Nazi racist, doesn't mean all Germans are!

All Muslims are Terrorists

For the person who commented : Uh, this is already number one. Don't post the same item twice.
The 1st statement is about all arabs being terrrorists and not muslims. Arabs are NOT ALL muslims. Being arab is a nationality whereas being muslim is your religious belief. Both are not the same! So you are caught in a stereotype yourself!

Bull, if a muslim (keyword: if) was a terrorist then they wouldn't be a muslim because it is against the religion.Close minded people think this because arabian terrorists claim to be muslims but they can't be when they are clearly going against what the Qu'ran says.

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.

This gets me angry. For the last time, Muslims aren't terrorists! I hate it when people always think that.

Whites Are Closed-Minded to Other 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

The people at a school I use to attend would bully white people about it all the time unless they were German or Italian. Mostly Western Europians got the abuse like French and English people.

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

I love other cultures!

They shoudl shut up. I'm white and I'm getting lessons to speak japanese from my teacher (ho I s white and can speak it) and I love anime and most things from japan!

All Teenagers Smoke

Smoking is disgusting. The smell sucks, is gross and from a young age teachers always have taught the class about the bad things smoking does so I am anti-smoking and put off by it.

Whoever thinks this stereotype is true is so retarded. Most parents get stricter with their kids when they grow into teenagers.

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

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

A Woman's Place is In the Home

This is a VERY ANNOYING stereotype that has been seen everywhere! (even in this add I saw) but this is VERY false!
(I actually know someone who punched someone after they said this to her)

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).

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

We let you in this world, and THIS is where you're telling us to go?!

The Contenders

All Americans Are Stupid

We aren't all stupid. To broaden this out, let's make this "Whites are Stupid." I"m mostly white, and I'm smart. I know a few white people better than me at math. I know a few Asians only in the average. I am not trying to flip the stereotypes, but still, just get rid of them. Oh, and let's take into mind that Einstein was white?

Most of the people claiming this are accusing people from the U.S. of being close-minded and snobby, but they fail to realize they're huge bigots, and are actually worse than homophobes in a lot of ways. Also, just because we don't watch Soccer often doesn't make us bad people.

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.

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.

All Brits are Snobs and are Rich

This is a stereotype made by America. If you watch they're T.V. shows and movies apparently we have some weird ass accent and drink tea. I hate tea, I speak normally, I'm not rich and there are people I know who are but they're not snobs or stuck up. this stereotype is mostly associated with London which makes no sense because if you go there you will have to search all over the place to find a guy wearing a suit while sipping tea and touching his curly mustache. Even if you go to Buckingham palace you have tourists all around the place not just people who live in the are.

If I was a spoiled brat I would've had Furby not a McDonalds Shelby.
I live in a town for the poor lower class.
I used to live in a flat that had an outdated boiler cupboard from the 1960s or something. I liked the flat though before it was demolished...but the garden was bad you could never grow vegetables there.

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 all of us are snobs. Down in Devon, its farms and humble villages. We don't wear bowler hats, drink tea (at least not ALL the time), and say "Spiffing, old boy! ". Same goes for almost all the rest of England. We're
as snobby and rich as the rest of the world.

Gay Men Act Like Girls

This one is partly true. I've seen a lot of gay men at school and college and they all clearly had a girly behavior. There was just one that admitted he was gay and we all thought he was straight all this time, he didn't look girly. I guess the extroverted homosexuals act more girly and the introverted ones have a normal behavior.

James Charles probably supports this stereotype. He is gay but acts WAY too feminine for his own good. Plus he manipulated straight and possible asexual guys (the asexual guys part is my speculation). I haven’t created that much gay characters, but the ones I did create pretty much act just like straight males, possibly even manlier. The only difference is who they like.

I hate how everyone believes this. I'm gay and everyone thinks I'm the manliest in the class in terms of actions! There is no difference between us and straight guys, other than the fact we are attracted to the same sex! Seriously, some people.

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?

All Blondes are Dumb

I'm blonde and I hate this stereotype! People always assume that I'm girly and dumb just because of my hair color! It sucks!

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.

I love me some blonde jokes but if you genuinley think all blondes are dumb then you're wrong.

Mexicans Are Dumb Drunkards

Since when is this a stereotype? The top two mexican stereotypes (which are not true) are: 1. They are illegal immigrants and smuggle drugs and are super poor so they join gangs. 2. They go to fiestas all the time cause they are party lovers and wear huge sombreros while shaking some maracas.

1 out of 100 Mexicans are drunk. Also, Mexicans shouldn't even spend their money on Beer. They should spend it on food like they ask for

I'm Mexican and although some of my family members drink, they only drink during special occasions and not all the time.

I thought the "drunk" stereotype was the Irish or the Russians. The Mexicans seem to always be about sombreros and fiestas!

All Black/African People Have Ebola and Aids

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

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

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

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

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).

Here is 3 reasons why that stereotype is not fully true:
1:I've never drunk tea in my life.
2:I'm not rich
3:I live near a place which has graffiti on a few buildings and there are tons of homeless people (and this is in Britain.)

This is totally untrue! I HATE tea, and I'm not rich, I only know 6 British people that actually drink tea all the time and love it

I drink tea. But I'm definitely far from rich. Being rich would be nice, though. Not everyone drinks tea though.

Afghans are Dumb Horse-Riders

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

All 12 Year Olds are Immature Brats

Some are. Then there are lonely, suicidal 12 year olds crippled by social anxiety. Source: my life.

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

No offense but What have you done that has caused that big of mistakes at 12?

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

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.

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.

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.

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

This is wrong. We didn't suck in wwII. We are one of the most influential countries on earth. That alone proves we don't suck at everything.

All Americans Are Bad At Cultural Geography

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

That is half true.

I won the geography bee at my school in 8th grade and I’m American.

Asians Wear Straw Hats

I've never heard of this stereotype before.

Dat cause you watch Kung fu panda too much

I have two baseball caps and lemme check..hm, zero straw hats

Not all of them do.

All Heavy Metal Artists Are Devil Worshipers

Take Slayer's Tom Araya for example, he's Catholic. The man is the frontman of a band with satanic-like lyrics and he's Catholic. This proves this stereotype wrong.

Lots of heavy metal artists are not Satanists. Take Tom Araya and Dave Mustaine, they are Catholic and Christian and a part of famous bands (Slayer and Megadeth). I’m a big fan of heavy metal and I’m not a Satanist, I’m an Atheist...

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.)

This is completely not true, I'm a kid and I love heavy metal and rock bands do NOT worship the devil, that's ridiculous, if you do think that its true, then seriously... go get a life.

All Americans are Racist

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.

You know its scary when the ''racist are coming'' once Donald Trump took office we have been one of the most offensive countries in just those some quick years.

Anyone holds the potential to be racist, no matter what their nationality, race, or gender is.

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

Blacks Are Ghetto

I have a black character named Meckley Moore. He’s not ghetto at all (he barely knows any ghetto words) and he is the smartest kid in the 8th grade. People always come to him for tutoring because of how smart he is.

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.

People think this because in some ghetto areas most people are black. In my year there are ghetto black people but then they're friends are mix and also white.

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.
