Top Ten Worst Stereotypes About the French

I HATE FRENCH STEREOTYPES! I hate how we are always picked on by other nations!

The Top Ten

1 The French surrender

To be fair France is not the only country to get picked on every country deals with this you just have to choose how to respond to it - RawIsgore

DUMB STEREOTYPE! This happened just because of World War II! You guys do realize that we actually had it good during the Napoleonic era and conquered more people who surrendered to us! - Flair-de-lis

France has won more wars than any other country IIRC. - Extractinator04

2 French people smell bad

No, it's just the cheese and raw meat that smells bad. - PositronWildhawk

I don't smell bad. I don't think anyone in my neighborhood smells bad either! - Flair-de-lis

This is a stereotype used for Indian people as well.

3 French people are rude

We are not! Dumb tourists believe we're rude based off of their experiences in PARIS, and only Paris. - Flair-de-lis

Can I just say that I know quite a number of people from France, and those from Paris are some of the nicest in my experience. - PositronWildhawk

Not all of them are rude. - Userguy44

I’ve communicated with some French people before and they were actually nice. - HoldenFanatic

4 French people hate America

We love a lot of things about American culture. Just because America currently has idiots like Donald Trump running the country doesn't mean we hate them! - Flair-de-lis

Ever heard of Macron? Or anybody else? Most of these French stereotypes are false, correct, however from what I have experienced French people are some of the most narcissistic people in the world, even more than some of the other nations in the EU (not including Britain). Their hate is not just directed toward America, however this is just the most voiced hate for a country.
I love French food.
I love French wine.
I do not like French people, who all see to be elitists (except the Yellowjackets)
I do not like French policies on anything (if I was French, I would be one of the aforementioned Yellowjackets)
I respect your opinion Mr. Flair-de-lis, and I am not happy that I cannot log in to my account so I look legit, but I will argue my beliefs no matter what.

5 French people always wear berets

I never saw one and I never wore one in my life! - Flair-de-lis

6 French people love frog legs

They're good. They taste like a combination of fish and chicken.

I never had them. They probably taste bad! - Flair-de-lis

7 French food is gourmet

The word gourmet is French, but we have adapted a culture like most other nations already. - Flair-de-lis

Gourmet food is great@ - Userguy44

8 French people love poodles

I like poodles because I like dogs. They're pretty cute when their fur is a bit short and scruffy with and the same length everywhere including their face.

Poodles are ugly! - Flair-de-lis

I love poodles, but when it comes to French dogs, I just adore the Pyrenean Mountain Dog. - PositronWildhawk

9 French music is dominated by the accordion

We like many other instruments, we don't just have accordion music playing in the streets all the time! - Flair-de-lis

10 French people are overly romantic

No, because the Italians are even more over the top. - PositronWildhawk

This stereotype contradicts us being rude! It's also untrue! - Flair-de-lis

The Contenders

11 French men always kiss a guy to greet each other

Kiss their hand that's what it meant.

Umm, what the hell is this?! - PositronWildhawk

12 French people eats snails
13 French woman are obsessed with fashion
