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

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

I hate this stereotype because I am a blonde know I do know people who act like this but they are still very smart and I have higher grades than kids who have easy classes and fail and I have harder ones and I am I some of the highest classes and most kinds are blonde and kids that are so stupid they fail gym and people with mostly brown hair - lbelle0527

Some of the smartest people I know are blonde - blackflower

2 The Super Feminine Gay Guy

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


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

That's disgusting - Ananya

3 Emo Cutter

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.

I'm emo and I don't cut.

Actually, you try to get opposite of cutting.

4 The Black Criminal

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

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

Almost all Asians strongly believe tin this

It’s just wrong - blackflower

5 Only White People Can Be Racist

It's aggravating anyone can be racist! What if someone who's not your skin colod walked up to you and started yelling at you for being a skin color GASP guess what what if they're not a certain skin color people assume are only racist - Puppytart

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

They are! I wish I wasn't white!

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.

6 The Feminist Bitch

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

People accuse "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" for being feminist propaganda, because the main character is a girl, and she's way too overpowered. I don't believe that, but I do agree that Rey seems too OP.

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

7 Evil Albino

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

I have a albino character...

8 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

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

My brother is this.

not funny

9 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

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

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Satanic Metal Head

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

Can someone explain this to my parents!

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.

12 The Desperate Single Mom

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

But my mom is that way.

13 Smart Asian Dude

And girls. -an Asian girl. That's not to say I'm super smart either. Its just not that hard to do well before high school.
That being said, I'm tired of people, students, friends and teachers expecting me to be super-smart because of my race. It gets annoying! - keycha1n

This is one of those stereotypes that is actually kind of a GOOD one. Smart is good, right?

Race does not really make you more/less smart. Some are geniuses, others may be mentally challenged. That's the same for all races.

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

14 All Animals are Dumb

Most of them are smart

Most of them are smarter than some humans.

15 The Asian Schoolgirl

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!

*groan* - Aquastar_of_DewClan

16 Masculine Lesbian

That's disgusting as well - Ananya

I just don't get this.

17 The Autistic Idiot

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

This is just sad. I had a friend with Autism, and she was intelligent. Sure, some Autistics DO in fact, have poor motor skills, but some are also very smart. Don't put a label on people based on what you see/know.

People with autism are not idiots. This stereotype pisses me off so much.

18 Thin Wimpy Boy

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.


19 The Douchebag Atheist

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

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

This one drives me fuccin' inSANE

21 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?

22 Evil German Scientist

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

I love minecraft

23 “All Black People Are Dangerous”

Every Asian strongly believes in this

24 Tomboys Hate Girly Girls and Vice Versa

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

25 Girls with Blonde Hair are Dumb

This is at the top 1

Leni Loud

26 “Fat people are bad”

Da hell? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

27 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

28 All Children are Brats
29 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

30 “All Muslims Are Terrorists”
31 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.

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

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

32 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


33 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...

34 Soulless Gingers

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

What? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

35 Popular Girls are Mean
36 White People Can't Rap

What about Eminem? - TwilightKitsune

Just listen to the beastie boys

This one seems racist.

Who cares? rap sucks.

37 The Religious Who Are Simple-Minded
38 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.

39 All men are Glenn Quagmire

NUU ALL MEN ARE BETER! 111! 1 - Manowar9

40 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

41 All Teenagers Smoke

A lot of teens think smoking is gross

42 The Creepily Sexual Furry

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

43 The Nerd with Glasses

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



44 The Fat American

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.

This is just not true, many Americans are not fat. - thelegendaries101

Penny pinching

46 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)

47 Overweight Obnoxious Black Woman

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

48 The Devil Worshipping Satanist

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

49 The Perverted Anime Fan
50 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.
