Can't argue with that. But do you agree there is magnifying throught the lebses of hollywood cameras?
As for the chubby gamers, I believe that originated from the 'neckbeards' and whatnot who used to play Dungeons and Dragons in their mom's basements. Those were the guys who never worked out. Those were the guys who could very well off themselves if their characters died.
This is also probably where the girl-gaming stereotypes came from as well. Nobody ever saw a girl in those circles. And chances are, if they did, they didn't recognize the girl because even the guys have shoulder length hair.
Sorry if I brought offense to anyone. Just using the classic examples.
I don't know about you guys, but I don't think I look girly, and a pink top and skirt really wouldn't work well on my body anyway, though I do like rainbows as a pride thing. If I had any type of knowledge as to how to make money by making things look pretty in someone's house I'd probably not be living with my mother at this point, but whatever.
Another one is that furries are perverse middle aged men who talk with the furry "Language" (Yiff, scritch, furpile, etc.) as in that CSI episode.
Or another that Adult Babies/Diaper Lovers are fat and ugly old men who have to resort to unsavory methods to gain a caretaker/babysitter (Yet again, a CSI episode).
I hate the everyday use of furry terminology, though I use it in a casual sense among other furs when it can be considered acceptable to use it. Never among non-furs or complete strangers however.
And of course me and my Wuffie aren't keeping dirt on the other to ensure we play nice in our nursery either =P
To be honest, people who think stereotypes apply to a majority really aren't seeing the big picture. Same as the WBC is but a very minuscule and insignificant portion of the Christian religion, they're very vocal and public, the majority of stereotypes represent an extreme that is very public, vocal, or controversial in nature, while the true majority basically gets slandered by association with them.
Aha I know it's like " oh yeah I have NOOOO life I only play year round soccer and spend time with my brother and sisters on the weekends. Nope NO life at all"
