Where stereotypes might aid one to typecast another at a glance, these are generally offending and often misleading. Everyone knows all brilliant students aren’t nerds. But what is the first thing that comes to mind when you see a student doing exceptionally well in class? Exactly. And with the addition of glasses, a few books in hand and a fanny pack, the stereotypical notion becomes a rigid belief.

Let’s explore a few common nonracial stereotypes. So here i have compiled a list of some of the most hilarious nonracial stereotypes and do add more in comment section.

Women are Horrible Drivers

Women Drivers

This stereotype has perhaps the greatest number of real-life examples floating across the web. Yet, it remains one of the most disputed. Statistics show that men are involved in a greater percentage of traffic accidents than women. However, some would argue that it is simply because they drive more.

Straight-A Students are Socially Inept

Nerd

According to this stereotype, in order to ace a test in high school or college, one needs to have little or no social prospects. Students type casted as “nerds” often find themselves at the bottom of the social scale, purposefully ignored by all throughout high school and college. A cruel fate, indeed.

Jocks are Dense

'Jock' Bravo

The concept that governs this stereotype is a perfect example of a balanced equation – one can only gain extraordinary physical strength at the cost of mental agility – it’s that simple.

Blondes are Dumb

Dumb Blondes

The dumb blonde stereotype dates back as far as the 1900s and cruel as it may be, the world – especially Hollywood – doesn’t seem as if it is going to grow tired of it any time soon. Still, teen flicks portray blonde-haired women as “bimbos” – beauty without brains. [Image via Bizarro.com]

Female Gamers are Ugly

Girl Gamers

This nasty stereotype judges the relatively small female gaming community to have one feature in common – unsightliness. Some would even go as far as saying that the attractive female gamer is a myth. The female stereotype has served to offend countless female gamers around the world.

Avid Gamers Have No Social Life

Gamer Geek

Often in movies, TV shows, books and the very minds of people, video game enthusiasts are portrayed as a group of vain, unappealing, non-social individuals locked up in their rooms, indulging in their seemingly incurable addiction. “Whoever this person is, he has played World Of Warcraft nearly every hour of every day, for the past year and a half. Gentlemen, we are dealing with someone here who has absolutely no life.” (Dialogue out of South Park Episode “Make Love, Not Warcraft) [Image via 360gamercast.com]

Men are Scared of Commitment

Men Scared of Commitment

Women are generally of the opinion that nearly all men are scared of committing to a serious relationship and that this acute fear of obligation is the cause of most break ups. (Well, boohoo!)

Women Like Bad Boys

Bart Bad

Women like bad boys for more than just a few reasons. Bad boys are confident and carefree and they play by their own rules. This nonchalant, rebellious attitude alone gives their female companions a sense of excitement and adventure.

Young People are Naive

Young blood

The new generation is always deemed foolish and most of society’s shortcomings are credited to young blood. That is the way it has been since time immemorial.

Rich People are Arrogant

Rich and Arrogant

This stereotype is centuries old. If one happens to be wealthy and successful, people automatically assume he or she is a conceited snob too, and in some cases, they are right.

    In your “Female Gamers are Ugly” you deliberately made a stereotypical comment when you yourself are trying to make a list that pokes fun at stereotypes. Do you see the irony in that one? You said: “the relatively SMALL female gaming community to have one feature in common…” when in fact we all know that the number of women/girls playing games equals and sometimes often exceeds the number of men/boys playing games but girls just don’t advertise as much. Please remove the offending line immediately.

    ooh Cassandra is a pissed off female gamer, as all female gamers always are

    Cassandra… I know you think you’re doing the right thing by voicing your complain but you’re actually just being racist (well I guess sexist more than racist (but lets agree they’re the same)) 

    Clearly, your comment has to be based somewhat (a lot) off the fact that you ‘are one/feel sympathetic/want to empower’ (or something else on these lines) towards the female gaming community (which is a good thing (well personally I have some problems with it (ill get to them) but its still a good concept and I wish more people were as direct as you are)). (Now you’re probably thinking “Uhh EXCUSE ME?!!”,  so yes of course you’re excused and now let me explain myself)

    Generally the reason people hate stereotype jokes is because they feel that they are offensive. The idea of making fun of something that’s completely exaggerated relating to a certain group of people offends some people (not me but at least these people hate ALL stereotype jokes). But (and now this is the part that relates to you Cassy. Is it ok if I call you Cassy?) you haven’t expressed a problem towards all of these jokes, you only had a problem with one. So clearly you value the female gamer population in a different way than you value the rest of these populations (which, for those of you who forgot, is basically what I stated above).

    Now my problem (as someone who likes to think that they stand for equality) is that even though the female gamer stereotype is wrong and offensive, its no more offensive than any of these other stereotypes so by protecting one of these groups (not all), you are favouring them above the rest (treating female gamers better than other groups of people), which is most definitely racist. 

    But wait, its actually worse than you being racist, because I’m willing to accept that some people dont understand that everyone should be equal. (And now this is why you’re much worse) Clearly you do understand and fight for equality (you probably consider yourself an equalist or feminist (or something on these lines)) yet you’re being extremely hypocritical and are actually making racism worse (which I think is bad) (Shame on you).

    Ok… So.. Thats basically it. You are racist but you also want people to stop being racist, so stop it!!

    Honestly I’m a female gamer, but i have confidence in myself to know i don’t look like that… stop being so sensitive Cassandra.

    My dream girl is a girl who plays videogames and is able to beat me in cod of bf3 lol idk i just think its hot when a girl is really good at videogames, to be quite honest though, I dont see, or well I guess “hear”, that many girls playing online, I’m sure its a big community, but I dont think its any where near the amount of guys who play games, oh n the few girls who I know that are really into games (not just playing them because everyone else is), are freakin HOT lol
