Stereotypes are one of those things that makes me...furious. I hate them so much because it only shows how people are ignorant and how they like to stay that way. Everyone has some kind of stereotypes, I know that, but they can be easily erased if we get our brains working and start studying about the subject or better: talking to people! Trying to understand them!

I'm going to expose myself right now. I'll use the 'x' mark to point who I am and how probably people think of me because of that & a 'y' mark to point my own stereotypes. This is a meme to myself, to remind me that, no matter how much open-minded I am, I'll always make misconceptions about what I don't know. Next, I'll do my research ant try to be a better person. Will you join me on this quest?

If you are one of the persons I stereotyped, please don't be angry at me, but leave a comment anyway or send me a note: take the wrong out of me & place the right feelings and thoughts. Thank you. :heart:

Just a little add in consideration to this last affirmation: "I'm a HUMAN BEING, so I MUST be LABELED". I think it's the other way around. We're human beings so we label everything. This is a chair and that's a table, I'm a girl and you're a boy, you're pretty and I'm ugly. She's nice, but you're lazy. It's the way we organise our world. It's the way we think and communicate. It's even the way we feel towards others and ourselves.

I invite you to read Why It's Dangerous to Label People:www.psychologytoday.com/blog/a… & Why are people so keen to use labels to describe themselves or others?:www.quora.com/Why-are-people-s…. You're welcome. ;) :heart:
