I'm Irish, the biggest ones I hear are:
Wow, you must drink a lot.
Bet you can hold your alcohol.
Where is your accent?
So you must know good whiskey then!
Do you have a short temper?
So you must be Catholic then.
What part of Ireland are you from?

Yes I drink a lot, but not because I am Irish.
Yes I hold my liquor well, but that's from drinking a lot and being big.
I cover it and speak slower so people can understand me.
No, I know what I like.
No, I am patient to a fault due to a big family.
I'm actually atheist. (that's another line of stereotypes there)
I was born in America, my biological father was full Irish and my mother is 1/8th putting me at just over half Irish.

Okay... Coming from the South, I hear lots of stereotypes about us. "Hey... I heard you're from Louisiana... Are you a redneck? Do you like crawfish? You know Cajuns are nothing but white-trash, right? Are you finished eating your alligator? Do you eat road-kill? Do you eat possum? What about armadillo? Did you live on a farm? Well, what about in a swamp? What's your IQ? Do you hate gays? What about black people? Asians? Mexicans? Show me your teeth. Do you take a bath everyday? Do you have a farmers tan? Do you hunt? What about fishing? WOW! You have shoes! I'm amazed! Do you own a gun? Did you live in a trailer park? " And many MANY more. Jeez. I don't know what your problem is, but god, we're not all like that.

Other stereotypes:

Being white translates into being racist.

Being straight translates into being homophobic.

Loving anime translates into either being a pervert or a weeaboo.

(According to the internet) Being a girl translates into being dumb and knowing how to cook very well.

Anime translates into one of the three: Cartoons, Kid's cartoons, or porn.

Being a homestuck fan translates into being annoying.

Liking Tumblr also translates into being annoying.

No instagram? Well, then you're not cool.

Having ADD translates into being stupid and zoning out often.

Want to learn Japanese because of anime? Well, then you must be a weeaboo!

Cats are evil... For some reason.

Disney movies are for little kids.

So is Pokemon.

Add Nintendo games to that list too.

All people who like rock music are goth/emo/punk.

Hetalia fans only like it for the yaoi shippings.

All gays like girl things, or vice versa.

That's about all the stereotypes I could think of.

So what are some stereotypes that get on your nerves?


Nice list, did you get that off the internet? It's nobody's fault people are the way that they are; you just have to move on with your life.


That was kind of rude. I did not get it off the internet. I'm sorry if my posts came off as ranting or complaining, because that's not what I meant for them to be. I'm just very sensitive and very easily offended, so some things can't really get off without a response.So again, I'm very sorry if I bothered you.


You're kind of rude yourself, I'm a fairly sensitive person or you wouldn't have offended me. I highly recommend you learn how to take humour in stride moving forward, this is the internet~

Assumptions people have made about me online include... basement-dwelling neck-beard, nerd, meathead/jock, I was asked if I eat alligator (I don't). That's about all.

None of them really bother me all that much until an idiot calls me stupid after displaying their own stupidity.

In person though I haven't really run into any problems except this one customer accusing me of being racist when I worked at Kmart. I had just come back from a break and received keys from a coworker. I then asked how he was doing and what he was looking for... "just looking" was his response. I then moved on to my next priority which was to check all the locks on the game cases to make sure my coworker didn't leave any open. I did this immediately and thoroughly as always and for whatever reason he took offense to that and sought out the manager....

I thought about creating a thread about stereotypes surrounding "Girl Gamers", and how the online gaming community is mysogynistic towards female gamers , and that "girl" and "gamer" aren't mutually exclusive, but, meh.

I hate how people think that I'm a white girl because I get Starbucks and use Instagram. #SoAnnoying #ImHelluhAsian

But one stereotype that's true for the West side of America is that we say "hecka" or "hella."



That's hella true.


People say I'm so Asian just 'cause I drink Boba a lot and always do the "piisu" sign in pictures. x)

"You aren't very social and prefer to be alone. You must be depressed! Go get a girlfriend, play some football (american), and let's discuss suicide prevention!"

"You don't want a girlfriend? You must be gay! You don't like guys either? What's wrong with you?"

"Hey, can you follow me on Twitter? What? You don't have one? Don't you have friends?"

"You're Asian, so you must be Chinese, right? ...What?! No, f*ck you- I'm one half Irish, one third English, an eighth French and Italian, and the rest is a mix of German, Russian, Polish, and Swedish!"

"What's your grade in English? ...What?! That's so much higher than mine!"

"Are you reading animu? Are you watching mango?"

"What's your favorite song? Huh? That's in Japanese, what even is it? Don't you listen to American music, you weeaboo?"

"What? You read doujins?! Why are reading that hentai sh*t?"

"What are you reading? ...'Lucky*Star'? It's full of little girls...are you gay?"

"You like Naruto? Sweet! So do I! Also Adventure Time, Spongebob, and other cartoons! Ah, but the Japanese parts of Naruto are so weird..."

"Pokemon is for kids! By the way, have you watched Frozen?"

"If she wears glasses, then she can't be the heroine. Same applies for childhood friends and little sisters. Oreimo doesn't count."

"Allow gay marriages/relationships! We should be able to choose who we want to love! ...Huh? Incest? Eww, no! That sh*t's disgusting!"

"Are you Buddhist? What? You're not? Then are you a Christian? You're an Atheist?! Aren't you afraid of going to hell?"

"Charizard is the coolest Pokemon ever!"

One simple rule has helped me keep my sanity: People are stupid until proven otherwise. Then you are only surprised when somebody you know and think is intelligent says or does something stupid.

I feel like Video Games are starting to become normal. By that, I mean, that people don't judge other people that play video games as much as they did in the 90's, 80's etc... Pretty much everybody that I know likes video games. Heck, my dad loves Mario and Sonic games.

Stereotypes are usually true... I mean they're only stereotypes because its happened so many times that its just become natural. And if you're different then show me your different, My opinion will change.

Or thats just what I think anyway.
