    Typically Typecasted

    So we've all experienced it. Doesn't matter if it's because of religious beliefs or due to where you're located in the world, we have all been stereotyped at some point in our lives. Some are brutal, some are justifiable, but the ones I am looking to get out of this thread are the ones that made you just shake your head and say "really" in your best Miz imitation. I'll give you a few examples of the ones I have faced (on multiple occasions) and hopefully you guys will follow the logic.

    Being from Texas, I typically get pigeonholed in the "Redneck" category... I find it funny because when I was around 12 years old, we hosted a couple of softball teams for a national tournament being held in my hometown. One of the teams was from Queens, NY and the first question my family was asked is "where are all the horses?" These girls literally thought we all rode horses equipped with wagons to every location we went to. I found it hilarious.

    Other typical stereotypes I have been labeled as thanks to the wonderful world of the web:

    A person who sleeps with family members (Inbred)
    A person who has sex with cows
    A person who thinks all other states/countries are the shits compared to Texas
    A person who carries a gun with me at all time... Okay, that's "somewhat" true because I have one in my car at all times.
    A person who drives a pickup truck
    A person who never graduated High School
    A person who wears 10 gallon hats
    A person who is racist because I live in the South
    A person who has a belt buckle bigger than most rappers chains
    A person who has only 5 teeth

    So we can see that stereotypes can be a negative thing, but at the same time, they can also be pretty funny and ridiculous at times. What are some common stereotypes that you guys have faced since joining an internet community?

    Wouldn't "Typically Typecast" be grammatically correct?

    I suggest you up that whisky intake to keep up with those on the webs! I would wear a kilt if I could get away with it, but I'd end up flashing someone and it'd be an HR nightmare. As to the haggis thing, why do you hate it? I can't say I have ever tried it, so I am clueless, but is it just not a good tasting food?

    to be honest, those stereotypes happen in about all southern states. I have been on those ends sometimes as well, and since I'm Asian I get a couple of others like:

    Bad Driver
    Good at school
    Eats dogs
    etc.

    Yeah, I figured it'd be a "Southern" thing, but those were the quickest to come to mind, since I am from the South.

    another one I get is that I have a "country draw" to my voice... But that is more for people outside of Texas who meet me in person. Most would never guess I am from Texas because I don't say "Howdy, Ya'll... Ain't it a grand-ol day, t'day!"

    Well here i go

    People can't understand that people from Cyprus are Greek Cypriots and some Turkish Cypriots and English Cypriots

    Cypriot/Greek means he's poor

    We break plates and dance Zorba all the time

    We eat gyro and souvlaki all the time

    We drink frape(not Facebook rape) all the time




    What Arsenal fans think about RVP moving to UTD:
