A pathetic way for attention craving and simple minded teens to categorize others, making it seem like they are the only normal person, and everyone else has issues and wutever anyone else does is wrong

basically they talk through their ass

Something that people use to label others. Normally judeged by what music they listen to (go figure) or how they dress and normally are NOT judged by the person they really are

The leading cause of hatred on earth.

A label that someone puts one in to express their style of life. Often causing people to be bashed and made fun of. Being labeled and being expected to be like everybody else that's in the same label as you are.

A truly sick thing that people need to put an end to.
Bill: "Hey, I'm going to stereotype that girl as emo because she has black hair and has piercings."
Sara: "No, she's not. She's wearing a Casualties shirt, so she's ovbiously a Punk."
Smart Person: "Maybe she's just wearing those things because she likes them. It doesn't matter what she is. So shut the fuck up and get a life."

A stereotype is a characteristic assumed by people regarding a certain population. Stereotypes are usually based on the history of that population and are also portrayed by the media. Stereotypes usually have a negative connotation, since it is including all people of a certain population into characteristics when really only a select few possesses.
1. If you are a teenager, you curse like a sailor, do drugs and cause trouble.
2. If you are white, you are a hypocrite that is jealous of society because you can't move up in life.
3. If you are black, you fail out of school, live on welfare and leech off the government, doing nothing with your life.
4. If you are a Jew, you are very careful with money and have huge ambitions to get rich.
5. If you are Muslim, you are a crazy, maniacal mastermind that likes to blow shit up and cause chaos.

Those are all examples of stereotypes.

An idea used because you don't understand something someone different does. Ex. You may think all Jamacians smoke weed, while in reality it's part of their religon, and they're Rastafarians. Ex. You may think Italians all have dark hair/skin, while in reality, that's only southern italians while Northern Italians can have blond hair and blue eyes. You may think Southern people are all stupid, while in reality, they just have an accent, so do most people. You may think Northern people all live in big cities and are stuck up, while in reality a lot of us live in suburbs and we are pretty low key people. You may think California is all beaches, while in reality is has beautiful beaches, large cities, ghettos, desserts, and shitty places. You may think that people from Jersey say "Joisey" but in reality we say "Jurzee". There are millions more, but yeah sterotypes are used to identify people you don't understand.
Stereotypes may contain some true facts but overall they exaggarate and generalize way too much.
