Whether its media or people who categorise and label others to make themselves feel superior.
examples of stereotypes include:
All muslims are terrorists and want to kill people in suicide bombings. (what a loada crap)
All chinese people are very clever
Americans are all obese
All emo people do is sit down and think about how the world sucks and cut themselves and end up killing themselves.
Black people are deadly gangsters
People who listen to rap are gang members
People who listen to rock/punk/etc are emo/gothic and that R'n'B,hiphop and shit like that is the 'right' music to listen to.
an assumption of a certain group of ppl. the simpsons area perfect example of a stereotypical town. where homer is the fat lazy husband with a dead end job, marge is the housewife that doesnt have a life outside the house, bart is the trouble maker boy, lisa is the forgotten, misunderstood girl, maggie is the quiet baby who never speaks, mr. burns is the evil bossman, apu is the foreign shop keeper, and the polie are lazy ppl who eat donuts all day. all the other characters are self explanitory.

1) All white ppl hate ppl who are different than them and MUST feel supiorer to them
2) All black ppl are ghetto hoodrats that dont attempt to do anything with their lives
3) All asians are smart ppl who hate everyone who are differnt
4) Muslims and middle easterns all want to blow up ppl
5) All black ppl are good at basketball
6) White ppl or goody goody house wife ppl who want to be more perfect than everyone else and hate it when other ppl get ahead of them in life
7) Black ppl are stupid and ignorant
8) Goths only wear black and theyre always thinkin about life, death, and commiting suicide
9) British ppl are some of the most snooty ppl who disgust everyone, even though they have some of the worst teeth in the world
these are just a few. there are a ton ton more.
A label, usually used negatively towards a person or a group of people, race, religion, or orientation.
Usually people who stereotype (95% of the people on this website) need a reality check, for sure.
Stereotyper's most commonly assume things like, 'Oh my God, she's Canadian so she must say eh after everything!' or 'He's Irish, he's gonna be a drunk!'.
Most of them, stop after awhile and grow up.
Some intill it into their children, and
there goes the intelligence of another

Nobody likes Stereotypes...
A word used to describe how people assume that a certain group of people behaves, dresses, and thinks a certain way.
Many definions on this website are based on stereotypes. See American Republican Democrat
or anything possibly stereotyped. I promise you, it is on this website.
A stereotype is someone who judges someone by how they look, their race, how they dress, thier 'label', etc.
s are bitches.
s are anti-social.
people are gangsters.
s are good at math.
Stereotypes are idiots because they judge people by stupid things like skin color.
An automatic overgeneralization of certain labels, regardless of accuracy; Over-abused discrimination
Cheerleaders: Vain, slutty
bitches who are way too self-absorbed
Emos: Attention-seeking, depressed, angsty teens (Fakes, wannabes, attention-seekers=the majority of emo population these days); Wannabe scene
queens; Emo Elmo (in my opinion, bullshit
, and an inaccurate judgement ofe "emo
"); Cutting (is actually a form of non-sexual masochism)
Celebrities: Over-paid actors and musicians just waiting to be judged and showered with overrated popularity; "Scandalous
Examples of stereotypes (regardless of accuracy):
"All cheerleaders are skinny, skanky, and anorexic."
"Why don't all you stupid emos just bleed to death, you depressed attention-seeking whores?" (Someone actually said this to me)
"OMFG, like, MILEY CYRUS!!! ROBERT PATTISON!!"
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
stereotype-ing fag: "oh ma god, u listen to Underoath??? You must be an emo wrist cutter"

stereotyping fag: "listening to metal means youre goth"
