I am in the mood to discuss stereotypes =D.

So let's go over gamer stereotypes.

*Gamers are fat and lazy

Untrue. My friends are star football players in our highschool and they play videogames every day

*Girl gamers suck

Wrong, girl gamers are actually really good. I don't see the reason why some people are so sexist about it. I know several girl gamers that shred online.

Hmm, I've actually never really thought of gamers as being fat and lazy, maybe because I don't know any fat and lazy gamers?

Theres a whole bunch of gamers at my work and they are more the slim to athletic/fit, hard working, intellectual, and even social types.

And well the only girl gamers I know can kick my ass blind folded so I've never thought of them as sucking at games either.

Well yes...a large number of hardcore gamers are more focused on gaming and not their physical health so people automatically relate gamers to fat and lazy.

Same goes with girl gamers...sure there are many that are really good...but most of them are not...so that's why people think that all girl gamers are not good at video games.

Actually not so much. Professional gamers around the world will tell you that you need stamina and strength in order to be in peak performance for gaming. Several of them usually grab a gym membership and will work out to stay in some form of shape (not like athelete, but enough to not be in terrible health).

I know for a fact that KeSPA requires all professional teams to give their team members free gym memberships to a gym that meets a certain quality.

[oops]Reach: I challenge some of my friends in the Air Force to handstand competitions for fun.

Now if you considered the "shut-in" type of gamer then yeah...they're going to be in some pretty bad health shape.

The biggest bunch of stereotypes think that people who sit on computers are a bunch of nerds.

Then it comes to beautiful girls being stupid.

There's a thought about girls that sexy ones are stupid and smart ones are ugly.
Even at Miss world sometimes i here that contestants say that "We're not just a beauty but a .....". Add to that in comedy movies or teenage related storyline mean and stupid girls turn out to be sexy and innocent but smart one is "not so hot!".

About boys story is the same. Nerds are usually fat people with a a baseball hat siting in front of monitor all the time, usually genius!

These characteristics are made by social based upon what has been fed to it.

Media influence.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm not even sure if we are a family, in fact, a council of elites to bring authoritarian-ship across the world.

Speaking of Media influence, most of the High School based movies I have seen are American, and the stereotypes are really strong in these movies so I wonder - are high school students in America really so divided by stereotypes?

I don't know, guys. Stereotypes ARE usually true--otherwise they wouldn't exist.

Like, computer geeks being fat and lazy. Well, like 80% of Americans are fat and lazy. Go figure.

In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'
