It harms people because some people cant be theirselves without being judged
Even if the stereotype is true it could still hurt somebody
That is very true Michael, Stereotypes can be hurtful. Words can be very rude and nobody should stereotype.
When we are stereotyping other people, or cultures we don't realize that it is effecting the people we stereotype. This behavior can result in terrible things such as, suicide, depression, self-harm, limited friends, eating disorders, discrimination, stress, and so much more. Is it really worth the energy to stereotype someone if it could result in such terrible things?
Kaylee, that is a really cool way of looking at it. Is saying one thing really worth all the pain it could cause someone?? We need to think before we speak and stop stereotyping people/things.
some people have eating disorders
If you do not now the person and you judge them in the wrong way you could hurt them.
Stereotyping can lead to young teen suicide and great depression. I know some students at Mattawan have thought of suicide and have been in great depression.
I have noticed that some people think that some really nice things are really hurtful. I have been in that situation before when my friends have said something to me and it was actually funny but inside it was really hurtful. Some of the things that people said to others are some really mean names and the kids never came to that same school again. But some of the kids have even went missing and wanted to move away from there old school because they have been called lots of names for years.
Why do we feel the need to make people feel bad about themselves? Stereotyping can cause teens to get eating disorders and self harm. We need to watch what we say because we could be hurting someone with just one single word.
When stereotypes effect people it can lead to them inflicting self harm, or they will become un-scoial and have little to no friends.
Stereo types good or bad can make people wanna kill themselves runaway or over dose on drugs. Those are all bad things that could kill you if they do it. So try to prevent stereo types and save a life.
I feel u bro
I feel u too broski
True anyone can be harmed
well I do not think that someone is going to kill them self if we call yall Yankees and im sorry if u feel that way but we will try to stop
suicide is a long term solution to a temporary problem...Don't do it.
Some harmful things that can happen are hurting yourself, running away, or even doing drugs. There are a lot of things that can be harmful another big one is losing your friends and family because your to scared they will judge you.
that is really true, anyone can be harmed
Stereotyping people can also be bad because if you hear a bad stereotype about someone you might automatically not like them even if they didn't do anything wrong.
You might dislike them before get to know them. They could be a cool or fun person, but because you stereotyped them you won't know if they are.
stereotyping can lead to pain and becoming a social out cast.
All stereotypes can make you to treat others differently either positive way or negative way. Also you might can be treated differently by others, as well.
It could go around as a rumor and get back to someone and hurt their feelings, and the person that made it up could have been saying a good thing about that person but it got back to the person in the wrong way.
Yeah, things get spread and the message changes as it goes around. Rumors are bad.
people say things that aren't true about someone or other people and the those rumors spread and its not good
You can stop stereotypes by not talking about people behind their back
Stereotyping can make people second guess themselves and change their purpose and attitude in a negative way. They might want to change themselves which leads to more negative situations.
Stereotyping isn't the way to go, we should think like we are all equal.
You're right. We should all just stop. Although there will always be people in the world who bad things, Andrew, me can make a difference in others by ourselves.
Some people cut themselves and they also try to kill themselves which is really sad.
Not only that, but people pass by them in the hall and are sometimes mean to them. The truth could be that their parents just got divorced, or someone in their family just died. People don't know that this happens and most people just end up making it worse.
whether its positive or negative judging people can harm them
Stereotyping can make people feel lonely and could lead them to commit suicide.
It harms people because it makes people think bad about themselves. That could lead to self harm or suicide. The next time you think about saying something about someone, remember it takes ten seconds to say something about someone, but a lifetime for that person to get over it.
I really like how you said that at the end, Catie C.
That is a really great way to put it, Catie!! I never thought about it that way.
If you Stereotype people could feel really bad then kill them self all because you stereotyped them.
it hurts people feelings and can be annoying
Stereotypes cause many issues. First of all, it bothers some people so much (because it's technically bullying) that they commit suicide. I read article that was online, it was about Disney movies and how they affect our lives. It mentioned that they took a poll. They showed pictures of "pretty" and "ugly" people to small children. 78% of the kids would rather have a "pretty" friend. That is sad to me, because for their generation, if you are not considered "pretty", you may become an outcast.
Some stereotypes harm people and they start having eating disorders or some even commit suicide. Also they can start being depressed.
Stereotyping can hurt people in many ways like if you tell someone they are really skinny you could not know if they have a eating disorder or not and maybe they are self conscious about their body and how they look. Also, sometimes when people make comments like you are being stupid or silly and then they say they are joking about it, some people may think about it and really wonder if they were joking or are being serious and that can hurt people.
Some people stereotype the people they don't know, which could hurt them on the inside.
A lot of people stereotype but you have no idea of there background and anything about them. So if they heard what people say, that would make them upset and they might do something they, and you regret.
A stereotype is a stereotype. It hurts one person or the other. there is no need for it. All it does is make someone feel bad. I think that we should just ignore it. It does nothing but hurt people. theres no need.
I honestly think that stereotypes are made just to make people popular. Why would you want to be popular. You don't get true friends. you get fake friends. Friends that don't care about you but friends that on;y care about your popularity
I believe that it can eathier hurt or help a person. I say that because a harmful stereotype can really bring someone down but could teach someone also.
Some of the harm of stereotypes are that some people commit suicide Feel worthless, and also lock themselves up in there house because they feel worthless and unwanted. Also looks are bringing people down and excluding them from groups just because of looks.
I think that even saying stereotypes is bad for the community. If one person where to say something, other people would catch on to that. Overall, just don't say them
Stereotypes can be anywhere you look, in tv shows, books and movies. I hadn't realized that Disney was stereotyping princesses. All of the princesses are very skinny and usually have blond hair and blue eyes or dark hair and brown eyes. I found a study that after having shown Disney movies to little girls they were shown two pictures, a "Disney" looking girl, and a less "Disney" girl and they were asked who they would be friends with. Almost all of the girls chose the "Disney" girl. Which is upsetting because they are teaching girls at a young age to only be friends with a pretty girl.
Not knowing when to stop with stereotyping can lead to people committing suicide.
nomatter who you are its bad to steriotype
-Positives, Sometimes compliments a person,
-Negative, Usually insults a person,
Stereotypes can be bad and good. They could be bad because could stop eating because it hurts there feelings that bad. And they could also be good because it could be like a complement about someone. The consequences for bad could be them getting back at you. And there really couldn't be a consequence.
I think one way a stereotype can harm someone is pressure. For example the stereotype that says all Asians are good at math pressures them to live up to it
People putting each other down with a negative motive can really hurt people, even if you don't know them. When you walk in the hallway and see someone that is different and you don't say "Hi" they could feel like there something wrong with them, and thats what hurts others. Even if your not talking about them to their face, they can still find out.
I don't think people realize that when they say things, even if they think it won't hurt anyone, it can do tons of damage. There are a lot of teens who commit suicide because of these stereotypes, I have personal experience, my best friend killed herself last year and it was because of all the people who said things that they knew nothing about. It hurts people and it tears people apart
I think that stereotypes are used way to much, and it surprises me that people will use mean or wrong stereotypes even if it mean that people might use self-harm or drugs to escape them.
Depression is a painful thing. It happens to a lot of people and some of my friends have went through it whether its losing a family member to a break up or anything like that. Depression is not fun at all, and most of the time its from bullying and stereotyping which needs to end now! It could take innocent lives everyday.
What I have found that although most of the times stereotypes are pretty negative and cause troubles in all areas of your life. Whether it be your social, professional, or home life somehow it finds it's way into every little facet of your life. However sometimes they can be although mostly for the people who actually stereotype. In fact with a medium to store information such as a stereotype you can actually remember more information with less effort about the specific thing that you have certain prejudices about.
When people are stereotyped, no one really wants to be their friend, even if the stereotypes aren't true (they usually aren't true). When they don't have any one to share their thoughts with, no one to talk to, then they could get depressed. That would be bad.
As in my article "Out of Bounds" people actually do commit suicide from stereotypes. In my passage people don't even realizes there hurting someone, but doing it self-consciously. And that something as mere as a high school football can end someones life with cruel chants making remarks making people feel insecure about there sexual orientation.
I think stereotypes no matter what the intention of it could hurt someone. Stereotypes can turn into bullying if taken to far and, then it could go even further than that.
Stereotypes can do many things to people but it really messes with there brain and people can go suicidal from it because of how they feel about their self. Imagine your self in there shoes because certain things to certain people can hurt really them internally;
I have been stereotyped by some people because I do cheerleading so some people automatically think that I am not as smart as other people.
It's important to know that the brain naturally judges others. It doesn't help when TV or social media add to our thoughts. Stereotyping can cause people to harm themselves or even go as far as suicide. Saying these negative stereotypes to people really hurts.
