Stereotypes unfairly group a certain type of people into a label.
It is stupid to think that anyone who wears Aeropostale is a slut. It's dumb to believe that anyone from Ireland is drunk all the time. Not everyone who likes black and is intrigued by Gothic culture is a Satanist.
Unfortunately, most people are very hypocritical about stereotypes and labels. These people preach about how stupid it is to judge others, but make ridiculous statements that strongly imply unfair prejudice against a certain group of people. See the example below.
Person: I hate it when people judge me for listening to emo music and dressing in black.
*blonde in Hollister jeans walks by*
Person: *snickers* What a slutty prep. They're such conformists. At least I know I'm unique.
Stereotypes suck. Get to know someone before you judge them.
