Stereotype

Stereotypes play an important role in


today's society and particularly in
Propaganda. According to the
Webster's Dictionary stereotyping is
defined as a fixed conventional notion
or conception of an individual or group
of people, heldby a number of people.
Stereotypes can be basic or complex
generalizations which people apply to
individuals or groups based on their
appearance, behaviour and beliefs.
Stereotypes are found everywhere.
Though our world seems to be improving
in many ways it seems almost impossible
to liberate it from stereotypes.
Types of Stereotype:
1. Racial Profiling
One of the more common stereotype
examples is stereotypes surrounding race.
For example, saying that all Blacks are good at
sports is a stereotype, because it's grouping
the race together to indicate that everyone of
that race is a good athlete.
2. Gender Profiling
There are also some common stereotypes of
men and women, such as:
For example
*Men are strong and do all the work.
*Men are the "backbone."
*Women aren't as smart as a man.
*Women can't do as good of a job as a man.
3. Cultures
. Stereotypes also exist about cultures an
countries as a whole.
For example.
* All Arabs and Muslims are terrorists.
* All people who live in England have
bad teeth.
4. Groups of Individuals
A different type of stereotype also
involves grouping of individuals.
For example:
* Girls are only concerned about
physical appearance.
* All teenagers are rebels.
5. Sexual Stereotypes
Sexual stereotypes, on the other hand,
suggest that any feminine man is gay and
any masculine woman is a lesbian.
For example:
Those who believe gay stereotypes
may also believe that homosexuality is
immoral, wrong and an abomination.
.
Why Is it Bad to Stereotype?.
Stereotyping is not only hurtful, it is
also wrong. Even if the stereotype is
correct in some cases, constantly putting
someone down based on your
preconceived pereptions will not
encourage them to succeed.
Stereotyping can lead to bullying form a
young age.
