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.

Can't argue with that. But do you agree there is magnifying throught the lebses of hollywood cameras?

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

I'm going to have to agree with the Dhamps on this one. Everyone here is just giving the exception to the rule.

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.

Definitely. Hollywood is guilty of spreading stereotype more than anyone or anything.

I'm inclined to disagree with Agito. Stereotypes are the public perception of a specific group's far-extremes, such as gay men being frilly girly-men who always wear pink and rainbows, talk with a lisp, and make millions of dollars a year with interior design expertise.

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.

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?

Yes.

My girlfriend can beat me to tears on Time splitters and shooters, and she rarely plays games. I think the majority are not interested in playing, but some are. Same with boys, some hate games but a lot love them.
