stereotyping

Stereotyping is when your judging someone by how they look. For example people might see me as a girly girl who doesn’t like getting dirty. However I see my self as a very sporty and outgoing girl that likes getting involved in activities.

If someone judged me before they knew me, I would be offended and annoyed. The danger of stereotyping is really unfair because if people said that I was rude and a bully they would want to stay away from me, which would result in me not having any friends.

Genders are often seen in diffrent ways because they think that a boy can’t wear a skirt and a girl can’t wear a hat. I don’t agree with this beacuse the world will be a very boring place due to a lack of diversity and differences.

    I agree with you because I also think it is unfair that people judge others by their gender or their age. If someone told me that because I’m a girl I need to like girly things like playing with makeup and wear dresses all the time I would be really hurt and upset.

      This is an interesting idea about being a ‘girly girl’ – what stereotypes exist about boys? Do you think they could be harmful?

    I agree with you, because if someone told me that i couldn’t play foot ball because i am a girly girl and i would make the team i am in, loose, i would really get upset! Luckily for our school, we have girls foot ball, and my team usually wins! I hope that people around the world get their rights for who they want to be and get educated and don’t get judged for who they want to be!

    I agree with you because nobody would like it if someone said I had to go to gymnastic because of my gender that would make me really sad because I might not like it and don’t think anyone would like that either.
