Top Ten Worst Stereotypes


The Top Ten

1 Dumb Blonde

Ugh... I am so sick of people assuming things about me because I'm blonde. A lot of people will be surprised when I say I don't like pop music, I don't really like Starbucks, I don't like Instagram a lot, etc. "BUT YOU'RE BLOND AND A TEENAGER! " So what? "YOU HAVE AN A? WHO KNEW! AREN'T YOU TOO BUSY WITH INSTAGRAM AND STARBUCKS TO STUDY?! " I just know that it won't matter how many random strangers are stalking my photographs, if I like all the "cutest" bands, or if I drink eighty rich, thick coffees in the future. Grades will, and I'm not sure I want internet stalkers or a bunch of empty calories every day. And as for music, I couldn't care less who's cute in a band. If that relationship worked your precious boy band member would be a pedophile. Music is for ears, not eyes. If I dyed my hair a different color, most people wouldn't be so surprised. Stereotypes are, in general, just such annoying barricades that we need to overcome, world. - pandagirl

Awesome, and I hate people hating Chinese too. We're cooler than they think we're! Racism SUCKS! - Aquastar_of_DewClan

Some of the smartest people I know are blonde - blackflower

And the most annoying thing about this is that SO many shows nowadays encourage this! It's really insulting, because I consider myself to be smart and I AM BLONDE! It's one of the stupidest stereotypes ever. - Minecraftcrazy530

They are just be founded by our beauties. Infact there has been many studies to suggest otherwise. It is actually a true scientific fact that those with blonde hair are perceived as so attractive that men act 'dumb'. As much as that seems strange, there has also been other research by another doctor, who put an end to this horrible stereotype and discovered... those with blonde hair actually had higher iq's than any other hair colour. I mean watch out when you see Elle Woods

2 The Super Feminine Gay Guy

I'm gay and people don't notice it until I tell them.

Gaahl (ex-Gorgoroth vocalist) is the complete opposite of this stereotype.


That's disgusting - Ananya

3 The Black Criminal

My relatives are Asian and they believe in this a lot. I disagree with them.

It’s just wrong - blackflower

Why are all black people fast? 'because the slow ones are in jail!

It's ridiculous

4 The Feminist Bitch

Random girl in my class:
(And basically every other thing she could possibly support)

Which is why you should never read the buzzfeed comments.

"there are so many girls in this video. Feminazi propaganda much? " **sigh** - keycha1n

Men and woman are equal. There. Done. Enough said. - TheAlbinoWolf

Misogynism should be banned... Because women get more pain (childbirth, periods, etc.)
And men have none of those things P.s f you if your a misogynist

5 Evil Albino

I have a albino character...

This stereotype pisses me of so much. - JelloLife

Super Macho Man looks albino, but he's a rich and egotistical Hollywood star.

What the hell? - Puppytart

6 Fat Gross Comic Relief

Why does every guy main character have a comic relief friend who's fatter than the rest and all the jokes are based on how gross and annoying they are. Just no - JelloLife

My brother is this.

I hate how fat people have been stereotyped. Why is fat such an insult? Because we've learned to associate the word with gross, lazy and ugly. Which is a terrible way to think!
And that's coming from a thin person. - keycha1n

not funny

7 All Boys are Obsessed with Football, Cars and Skateboards



I'm a boy, and I can proudly say this description doesn't fit me at all. - Solacress

The problem is that boys at school try to FIT this one. - Cyri

8 The "Terrorist" Muslim

If you live in a country where a large part of the population is Muslim, I think you have a more differentiated look on such things. In the US, racism means hating on black people, in Austria and Germany, it means hating on Muslims. In the US, rap music is made mainly by black people, in Austria and Germany it is made by Muslims. Schools in this countries here have many Muslim students, living together with Christians and Atheists. Yeah, there still is racism. As in the US, but there are many people standing for unity and against the stereotypes. I think that in the US, there aren't as many muslims and therefore not a big movement against the stereotypes and the racism. - Martin_Canine

No! No! Muslims are not always terrorists. I know the Islam religion has done some terroism, but I have seen some terrorists that are Christian. Long time ago, we Catholics do that too, but not all Catholics were like that. This stereotype needs to go. I have seen Muslim kids bullied because of that, and they have been sweet to me despite us having different religion. This is a stupid stereotype. - MissRWBY202

*groan* I lose all faith in humanity. - Aquastar_of_DewClan

People actually believe that all Muslims are terrorists, as can be seen with Trump. This needs to stop.

9 The Desperate Single Mom

More like "The Desperate Single DAD! "

You know those single mom's in media that are always searching for a man. - JelloLife

For me this is more of a cliche in movies that is used often. To show how much the characters life sucks, theirs dads gone or whatever and their mom's dating a prick. Seriously come up with something original please! PS I don't mean to be rude to whoever this has happened to it just happens way too often in movies. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Why you need to be desperate? - Ananya

10 Only White People Can Be Racist

Its unfair to white people and it leaves racist blacks, asians, etc off the hook.

I never knew there was something like this...I met white racists, black racists, asian racists... - Aquastar_of_DewClan

That's Stereotyping stereotypes

All of these stereotypes are bad (but at least the first is true), but I vote this one simply because it’s currently the most common stereotype.

The Contenders

11 Emo Cutter

Not all emo cut and not all cutters are emo

Actually, you try to get opposite of cutting.

Actually, I USED to cut, but then I found certain "emo" music that has actually helped me stop. I am emo, and because of that I DON'T cut.

I hate this stereotype so much. Emo is a subculture based off of music and has nothing to do with self harm.

12 All Animals are Dumb

Hey! Animals are smart, NOT STUPID!

Most of them are smarter than some humans.

Most of them are smart

13 The Autistic Idiot

STFU I am autistic and that I I AM PROUD!

This should be number 1! I'm autistic and I usually get good grades like the rest of the students. Autistic does not mean you are lesser, and it can sometimes affect people differently. This is wrong, I can't believe people think this is correct. Disgusting.

I'm autistic and this pisses me off no wonder why I have no friends while my friends are upstairs, the best spot in school

I have autism, and teachers consider me one of the best students, and I got an award for best Intelligent Progress or something like that. I had a friend who wasn't good at first, but then he blew up to be the most intelligent in the class. We autistics can be smart. We're just like other kids, but more socially impaired and thinking in a different, and this "socially impaired" thing shouldn't be a label if you ask me. Some autistics are good at being social. - MissRWBY202

14 The Asian Schoolgirl

*groan* - Aquastar_of_DewClan

Funny. This stereotype is usually used by Asian films.

Mainly just a way in hentai for dumb-minded older men to wack off. - Swellow

Really true!

15 The Douchebag Atheist

I'm atheist and I'm not THAT bad. - PhoenixAura81

This one really irritates me. I mean come on people! Not all atheists are jerks. There are some really nice atheists who care about other people and respect other people's beliefs.

I hate how people think Atheists are so mean. I am one, and I respect all religion very much. I don't care what religion you have - it's your belief, I respect it, and that's all that has to be said.

I agree! I'm atheist as well and I perfectly respect religious people. - Solacress

Yes! My best friend is an atheist (I am a Christian) and we get along great. She and I never discuss religion (she doesn't feel comfortable when we do, frankly, neither do I). - ILike2Comment

16 Smart Asian Dude

Yeah. I got 68 in my Math. Wow, as an Asian, I'm so smart. *My statement is true. I am horrible at math, and I'm Asian* - Rainfrost989

This ain’t bad

I'm Asian and I'm failing a class right now :(

Well if Indian counts as Asian then I'm technically Asian because I am of Indian decent(I was born in America and I still live there) and I am smart in Social Studies and sometimes Physical Education but I can struggle in other subjects although the only subject I truly hate is Language Arts. - DarkBoi-X

17 Wolves are Evil

Yeah! Wolves are not evil, they are nicer than HUMANS! At least them do not kill animals and plants for nothing. They kill to eat. We kill to eat as well. If we do it, why THEM are the BAD ONES?

18 “All Black People Are Dangerous”

My parents are Asian and they are afraid of black people. I wish they can see the nice and kind side of them.

19 Tomboys Hate Girly Girls and Vice Versa

I hate tomboys and girly girls why can't we be normal

My best friend is a girly girl and I'm a tomboy...we've been friends since 3! - Aquastar_of_DewClan

20 Thin Wimpy Boy

This website knows me too well, man. - CashOnlyNoCzechs

Characters like Hiccup from "How to Train Your Dragon" pushed this character to the limit, and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid"'s Greg Heffley drove it into overkill.


21 Girls with Blonde Hair are Dumb

This is at the top 1

Leni Loud

22 All Children are Brats

My nieces and nephews are very well behaved.

23 Masculine Lesbian

That's disgusting as well - Ananya

I just don't get this.

24 Fat People are Bad

Da hell? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

25 Germans are Nazi Worshipers

Actually it’s the opposite. Your not allowed to show a swastika (pretty sure I spelt it wrong) except for educational or historical purposes

26 Canadians Only Live In Igloos and Always Say Aye

It's not true I'm a canadian

Hey hoser! I'm gonna hit you so hard, you're gonna see northern lights, eh? ~Bear Hugger, 2009

27 Damsel in Distress

I was walking around the woods with one of my friends, when her 7 year old brother came running up to us with a shotgun. He said his dad told him to protect us. I told him we could take care of ourselves. He handed me the gun and told my to prove it. I responded by shooting some squirrels. He later threatened to shoot me with that same gun. I pulled a knife on him and told him to drop the gun. He told his mom and I got grounded. When I told his mom about the threats, she sold the gun. I came from a rough household, I think I'm capable of self defense. Stupid sexist idiots.

Females and males are both able to take care of themselves - Aquastar_of_DewClan

Another sexist stereotype, that females cannot protect or do anything for themselves. That is not true.

Both men and women are equally capable of taking care of themselves. Period. - yuki-blue

28 “All Muslims Are Terrorists”
29 The Religious With No Life

It's worse for people who are Hindu. We are humans, and yes, some of us are strongly religious, but we still have lives.

Who made this stereotype? Ned Flanders?

I do hate some religeous people but they have a life - RoseCandyMusic


30 Popular Girls are Mean
31 The French Coward

This is stupid. Don't understand why most people go with this. Anyways, who made this? Hitler?

If the French had any courage, they would stand up to the Islamist take-over of their country, instead of cowering in the corner every time there is another terrorist-enacted mass murder.

32 The Religious Who Are Simple-Minded
33 All men are Glenn Quagmire

NUU ALL MEN ARE BETER! 111! 1 - Manowar9

34 Satanic Metal Head

Can someone explain this to my parents!

I like this style of music. Yet I'm Christian.

Really annoying. - Fretto

I am a Christian and I love heavy metal and all kinds of rock (exept for rockabilly and early Beatles.)- Carolina Panthers/Nirvana fan.

35 Evil German Scientist

Albert Einstein was a German scientist and he's not evil at ALL! - PhoenixAura81

Final Fantasy VII’s Hojo, anyone? - xandermartin98

I love minecraft

36 The Posh British Person

I'm British. I'll go a day without brushing my hair. I don't give a fudge about jewellery. I hate tea, I hate dresses and I hate high heels. So how is this stereotype a thing? >.<

I hate this stereotype.

I would love to listen to your whining but Jeeves isn't here with my tea - TwilightKitsune

37 Mexican Drug Dealer

This one drives me fuccin' inSANE

38 All Teenagers Smoke

A lot of teens think smoking is gross

39 The Fat American

Many americans are fat.

Last time I checked, I'm American and I'm not obese nor overweight. Also, I exercise at Planet Fitness regularly and do at least 40 push-ups and 40 sit-ups whenever I don't go there. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I looked up the obesity rate on every country in the world, and America had one of the highest in every obesity map I saw. So this stereotype is...somewhat true? Still, it's super offensive!

Dinner just ain't dinner without seven steaks, ten pounds of home fries, 35 bacon strips and a six gallon chocolate shake. The downside is being confined to the mattress in my living room and having to use it as my toilet because I can't walk.

40 The Greedy Jew

Penny pinching

41 The Creepily Sexual Furry

WHATS A FURRY - Rainfrost989

I am a furry and I'm not creepily sexual unless I use it as a joke. I only am it because I like fursonas and that's all but nooOooo, people decide to cuss me out of every community because they think I'm gonna get there for spamming "wanna struggle struggle? >w<" "hello *grabs your paw* wanna yiff? :3". This just pisses me off.

I’m a furry and I do NOT rape animals. That’s disgusting! If I see a fox, I just say
“Aww look, a fox! ” Foxes are beautiful and THAT is why my fursona is half fox (and half wolf). Also I plan on never having sex. With anyone.
-Alaska shadowclaw

42 The Perverted Anime Fan
43 The "Emotionless" Angry Rebel

...If you were truly emotionless, you would have absolute no desire to go against rules... Then again, if I recollect, anger is an emotion...

44 Soulless Gingers

This one doesn't make any sense ay all

I feel sorry for redheads. They get bullied and harassed constantly, get called names likw soulless ginger and devilspawn. Red hair is a beautiful type of hair in my opinion and I wish I had red hair - TwilightKitsune

What? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

I just, I don't even know why this is a thing. It's just dumb. HAIR DOES NOT INFULENCE PERSONALITY!

45 Minecraft Gamer Kid

I like Minecraft, but I'm not a little kid who's obsessed. I'm a PVP strategist who knows his way in every game mode. Not a kid who cries when my dirt hut is destroyed by a creeper. - Cyri

Minecraft IS the BEST GAME EVAH

every 8 - 12 years old, 2013 -? - Bean_Destroyer12

Make they every 5-9 year old boy ever

"Get ou OF MY rOOM I'm watching DAMTDN'

-said popular moss and stampy and every other minecraft player (yes, I am making fun of those youtubers)

46 Overweight Obnoxious Black Woman

Just because you're black doesn't mean you're obnoxious.

47 The Devil Worshipping Satanist

LaVeyan Satanism is an Atheistic subculture and does not worship the devil. - Martin_Canine

48 White People Can't Rap

Who cares? rap sucks.

This one seems racist.

What about Eminem? - TwilightKitsune

Just listen to the beastie boys

49 The Bald Fat Dumb Adult Male

Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, the dads from "Calvin and Hobbes," "Good Luck Charlie," "Zits," and so many other examples. Unfortuantely, my dad is also some of these things, but not to the same extent as Homer.

50 The Nerd with Glasses

Mi don't know why everyone thinks somebodies a nerd if they have glasses, it's not true
