A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words?

I personally believe stereotyping is a crime. Came across these images on Facebook, wanted to share it with you guys.

      1. I also shared it to my personal Facebook. Probably won’t get many hits, my friends and family hate my writing. Something about being uncomfortable and why don’t I just forget it and pretend it didn’t happen. Maybe uncomfortable is my point!

      2. I feel that people who feel uncomfortable are just afraid to confront the truth and therefore have no hope of a positive change. But that’s just my opinion. And yeah ‘uncomfortable’ is not so easy to accomplish! Keep writing! 🙂

  1. Interesting to me because my sexual orientation was questioned because of the colour of a shirt that I used to like wearing! My response – ” If you can tell my sexual preference by the colour of my shirt, then let’s go into show business together with me as your manager. If you are correct, then you will be unique and we can both make a fortune!” 🙂

      1. I know/have known many people whose mouths clearly respond faster than their brain. I usually ask “Before you speak again, think what is likely to be achieved by your comment. If you cannot come up with a tangible answer, then don’t speak.” My fallback in the presence of stupidity is “It is better to say nothing and let them think you’re a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm the fact.” (author unknown)

  2. I absolutely love this post. I hate stereotypes. Especially the one about rape. I had a conversation with a friend once who was convinced that being raped was a kind of compliment; NO. Just so wrong.
    Also i hate when people call you gay or poke fun at your sexual orientation by what you wear. Wearing what you want doesn’t determine whether you’re gay or not.
    Definitely going to share this one around!!

    1. We do tend to carry “stereotypes” with us but this is probably a result of our upbringing being influenced by our parents perspectives, and those of our culture. The important message (to me) is to identify ones personal stereotypes, and then consciously change them. If we recognize a problem, we can fix it. Pity those who do not know that they have problems!

  3. This is excellent! Shared on twitter, facebook, and google. Truth is the new cool! I am a 50 year old woman. I have spent the last 20 years or so watching and experiencing truth, women, and feminism being persecuted and drowned in an extreme backlash. It is so good to see it coming back out into the light. Kudos.
