ok, some point in your life you've had to been a victim of a stereotype right? either "all blondes are stupid" (which i think is definitely not true!) stereotypes about black women, white men, any race, politicans anything you can think of. I've been stereotyped twice. Once I went to visit my high school teachers. I was getting a visitor pass, and this one lady that recognized me what like "hey i remember you, do you have any kids" I'm like what?!!? (I was very upset). I'm like whatever happend to "hey, how have you been since graduation, or where are you in school, or what are you studying" but no, i get "do you have any kid" and for the record im 21 with NO KIDS. But how dare she, right?? My second stereotype was because i wear glasses, i must be smart.......really? I wear glasses because i can't see. lol, but if i must say so i'm pretty smart. so have you ever been stereotyped? if so what was it and what happened??

Hello Keshia. We get it all the time here, people are categorised for certain things. Scottish people are accused of all being miserly and it's not true. A lot of people think English people are all posh, upper class scone eaters and that's far from the truth. I'm blonde and I've had to put up with countless remarks but I took them in the right way...then I dyed my hair dark brown
