Stereotype

Published by Mae on

Untitled-3

We continually evolve.  We live in the world where change is the only thing that is constant. The emergence of the technology has drastically affected the way people connect and communicate with one another. We had embraced diversity at the same time we opened a place where people freely judge everything, creating stereotypes that slowly divide us.

            Through the years, we have been branded by our religious views, gender preference, skin color and body shape. We create standards for each other to be socially acceptable. We live every day to see how people act and live their own lives followed by our so-called “comment” that defines an individual from our own point of view. Yes, we are entitled to have our own perspective and opinions but we also should know when it is enough, when we should stop and when we should act.

Aren’t we all entitled to define who we really are? Do we have to abide by what the society wants? Don’t we have the right to be who we want to be and how we want to live our own lives? Let me tell you something.

              Your religion doesn’t define who you are.

   Your gender preference doesn’t reflect your personality.

            Your skin color doesn’t make you superior or inferior from the other.

              Your body shape doesn’t make you less of anything.

We had created barriers that prevent us from understanding the uniqueness of each individual. Let us break free from the stigma that holds us back from doing what we really want. We should keep in mind what really matters, it is how we act and treat other people. 

Create your own description of yourself. No matter how people perceive you, always remember that you know yourself better than them. Let your goal be to understand instead to criticize. Build yourself to be a better version for your own good and the good of the people around you.

John Rey Dungca ACT 184 A stereotype is an over-generalized belief about a particular category of people. Stereotypes are generalized because one assumes that the stereotype is true for each individual person in the category. as a teenager, we have many things that we are doing the same. For example, 1. Being broke, as a teenager, personally I have many things to do and many things I want to buy, especially food, that is the main reason why teenagers are broke. 2. Bad at saving money, Because of being materialistic and of the desire to living the life to the… Read more »

Sterotype is a mistaken idea of many about a certain thing that is based upon its physical appearance which may be unrealistic. Stereotyping people is a type of prejudice because what is on the outside is a small part of who he/she is. There are things that I stereotype also, first is that men should be the leader. Because of our patriarchal society it is norm that men should always be the front liner. Second, Ilocanos are “kuripot”. Others think that people living in Ilocos Region are stingy because saving is one of their essential trait. Third one is all… Read more »

Stereotyping people is one of the habits which we have developed through the years. It seems easier than to actually know the real deal with someone. I, for one, is guilty of having these thoughts. I have my long list of prejudices about people because I am, in fact, a judger. The first one is that I always think that people from Pampanga are boastful or proud. Since I have had experiences in dealing with Kapampangans, I have noticed this specific trait. Another one, when I was still a child and being the competitive ass that I was, I used… Read more »

Stereotype is a belief of a people or standard that people always follow because they want to be fit in here in our world but stereotype is really not a thing for me, you can live what kind of life you want. First stereotype thing I hate is people who social climb, if they see something trend in social media they will go for it even if they don’t have the means to have it just to say or post on social media. Second is being judgemental, many people today are judgemental in every aspect of yours even if they’re… Read more »

Mary Erica Gregorio | ACT184 We all have that kind of belief about particular things or in categorizing of people and that is so called stereotype. Sometimes we are misinterpreting the actions of the people. Now a days, an eye can commit a sin. When I was a kid I used to think that all children don’t like to eat vegetables food but I’m wrong because we have different preferences. Second, I used to believe that older people don’t know how to use technology. Third, when you wear an eyeglasses I used to believe that you are smart. Fourth, I… Read more »

4. I think that when you love someone they will easily love you back.
5. I used to believe that you can use money by photocopying it.

People can easily misjudged things based on their own opinions. I, as well, has my own set of stereotyping thoughts: 1. I think that people who wear glasses are smart and very good at academics. 2. I think couples in public places who are showing their affections towards each other are “OA” 3. I think people who posts and shares lots of bible verses and religious quotes are not religious at all. 4. I think superstitious beliefs are non-sense and people who believed in them are immature. and lastly, 5. I think that students from private schools are sophisticated while… Read more »

Stereotyping is about forming several judgments based on your own, others opinion and encounters. I would like to share what are the stereotypes I’m guilty of. 1. I think people who posts a lot about pricey things and food they bought are social climbers. They wanna join the trend though in reality, there are lot of things must prioritize. 2. I think if someone corrects you might feel offended and start to downgrade yourself. Personally, Everyone has the right to share their knowledge this is a way to learn something. No to smart shaming. 3. I used to believe that… Read more »

Back when my mind was so immature I tend to stereotype or generalize some people. I had easily judged them just by basing on their background. Below are my top 5 acts of stereotyping which I was guilty (I hope not to offend anyone): 1. All gays do cross-dressing. Later on I found out that not everyone since there are still gays who dresses like a gentleman. 2. Men should act as if chivalry is not yet dead. Well now, both women and men have equal roles and responsibility in the society. 3. If you are a lady you should… Read more »

ACT-184 Labayne, Grace Joy Stereotype are oversimplified images or ideas of a particular type of person. There are a lot of stereotypes i am guilty with. First, for me, men are always strong. I think they are stronger than girls, in terms of work or jobs. Second, when i was a kid, i believed that when you are wearing an eyeglass it means that you are smart or nerd, but i was wrong. Third, i used to believe that those people who always post bible verses or religious quotes are religious and they always serve God. Fourth, i believed before… Read more »

As we lived and observe different things and many people, we created some general descriptions about something or someone who have shared common things. And that’s what we called stereotype. 1. Back then, everytime I joined in some academic related competitions, I used to be afraid on the contestants who wear eyeglasses because for me, they are really smart and destined to top in the competition. 2. Before, I always judge the girls who have vulgar nail polish in their nails as “malandi”. But now, I see it as part of their style, and expression of art. 3. Boys who… Read more »

I am guilty for misjudging other people because I think it is somehow true, and yet it is what we call stereotyping.

1. I think those people who always rant on social media doesn’t have friends to talk to.
2. I think all politicians are corrupt
3. I think all police officers are babaero
4. Before, I think that all artist are retokada
5. Before I think that these people who eat solo on restaurants or any fast food chains doesn’t have friends.

Stereotyping is something that has been popularly practiced by most of the people. Its purpose is to dictate others what they should do and what they shouldn’t. it’s something that we always think of that becomes our mindset in a latter. It is something that needs to STOP NOW. Ethnics rivalries, cultural norms and gender norms. These should all stop now. There are common stereotypes in the Philippines that I had also thought of. First is, if you don’t finish your studies, you’ll end up working in a fast food chain or in a call center company. I once was… Read more »

Stereotyping is really one of the barriers to getting to know people truly. We all usually have this impression constructed in our heads even before we meet other people. Just because some of them are like that, we always tend to generalize that others who belong to that same group are like that as well. Some stereotypes that I’m guilty of are: First, I think that foreigners are all rich or wealthy. Even though, this is certainly not always the case. Second, Filipinos are always late because of the famous line “Filipino time”. Third, I think that people who wear… Read more »

Maecy Chandy Santos ACT 184 – Stereotyping is when we judge people based on our opinions. We generalize them and think of them the same as we think of others. My list of stereotypes includes: 1. Back when I was in junior highschool, I used to think that my girl schoolmates who wear lipsticks are slut. But today, it’s normal for us to weak make up because it makes us presentable and confident. 2. I thought that those who wear tattoos are gangsters. 3. I thought that those who love reading books are nerds. 4. I used to think that… Read more »

Princess Leah Banoy ACT 184 Part of our nature as humans is expressing ourselves, and saying or doing things we want as we notice and judge other people . It is an unconcious criticism or let us say, ” an oral or physical observation” we are unknowingly doing as we see people or events that are different to what we believe is acceptable and right, which eventually lead to generalization or “stereotyping”. And I know that I am one of the million people who ended up seeing everyone and everything as how I see one or an individual, maybe because… Read more »

(ACT184) We live in a world where everyone has so much to say, has so much to voice out, and has so much to express not knowing when to stop and when to think about what’s being said and done. Let’s admit it, no one is an exception when it comes to stereotyping. We tend to think more than we are permitted towards others. Our level of acceptance has been affected by the social norms, standards, and ideals that we tend to forget that every person has their own set of it that they follow in order to feel self-love… Read more »

Ma. Alcyra Aira M. Santos ACT 184 Stereotyping is probably one of the most negative habits that all of us people may have. Us, humans, tend to generalize a particular group of people or ideas based on our own judgement that usually results to a negative proposition in life. I, myself, is no exeception to that. I also developed these ideas towards people due to some instances. The first one is that most of men are usually messy and untidy when it comes to their things and their surroundings. I was able to formalize this idea because my brother and… Read more »

It’s always been a piece of cake for us when we were stereotyping what’s on the outside of a person. We can’t be so sure how true or untrue it was if how we perceive others, is what we think the majority of everything. Me in particular, I also got many stereotypes to people based on their outside appearance which I’m honestly guilty of. First, I think of those wealthy people as wicked and sassy. Second, a girl wearing too much revealing clothes is a slut (no offense but that was my stereotype when I was a kid). Third, if… Read more »

Once in our life, we people are guilty of generalizing ideas to other people based on their actions, behavior or beliefs. Little did we know that, we also hate being judged and generalized by others. That’s where stereotyping takes place. In my own experience, I hate to be generalized to something I didn’t even done but I am guilty on the thought on generalizing other people. First, although we are admonished “don’t judge a book by its cover”, we repeatedly defy that warning as we go about our daily lives responding to people on the basis of their facial appearance.… Read more »

Second, I also somehow, and still believe that if someone wears eyeglasses, that someone is very smart. Third, if you have tattoos, you’re most likely to be “siga” or “adik but it’s just a way of expressing yourself. Fourth, if you’re skinny or sexy, you’re pretty.

When I was younger there were some stereotypes I used to believe. Here are some examples:

1. Person who has big tattoo are bad person.
2. Everytime or whenever I saw a guy who wore pink clothes were gays.
3. Person who wore glasses were all intelligent.
4. Person who always curse had a bad attitude.
5. People who worked abroad were rich.

As I grow I learned that everything has its own story and meaning.

First, I used to believe that people who smoke, has tattoos are bad people. Second, I believed that people with eyeglasses are genius. Third, I judge and got away from people who come near me when they look dangerous. Fourth, I believed that call center agents have a lower salary.

Stereotyping is a form of judgment wherein people are being automatically classified/judged as some type of person for petty reasons such as coming from a certain group of people, family, appearance, attitude, and the likes. I am a person who is VERY HYPOCRITICAL when it comes to stereotypes. I hate it when people are stereotyping me or others but I am quite guilty of stereotyping as well. I tend to judge people very easily. For example, if a girl is close to guys or has many guy friends, she is stereotyped as “malandi”. I am soooo guilty of this. I… Read more »
