Sterotypes. They can HURT. People sterotype sometimes without meaning. When you sterotype someone, it means that you judge them just by the way they look or something someone says about them. A stereotype is a generalized presumption. Any easy example...: There is a girl you work with who goes out with all kinds of guys. She also wears blouses that show her cleavage and short skirts. You MAY sterotype her as being a "tramp or hussy or someone how sleeps around a lot" when really she may just get along with guys better than women. Or A person on the street that has a lot of tattoos or piercings and dyes their hair weird colours or wears different clothing can be sterotypes as a "freak".
