A lot of people have mistaken my quietness for arrogance instead of the social anxiety I suffer from and, combined with my general look of long hair, at times random clothing and unshaven face, for some sort of mental retardation. Yet, when I'm clean shaven the quiet, clothes and hair lead people to think I'm a full blown homosexual. Not sure how exactly long hair + unshaven + quiet + bad fashion sense = totally gay, but long hair + shave + quiet + bad fashion sense = retarded, but to some it apparently does. Freakin' weirdos.  :-X

Well the last one tends to be true. Of course there are weak guys and strong girls (or, in your case, ninja girls :D ), but on the average, it's still so.

pffft you dissapoint me sander...
how chauvinistic of you -_-

It's a fact that men are often physically stronger than women, and that's because men usually have more testosterone, which increases muscle mass.

True, that's why you female powerlifters can't keep up with the males (although there's not a whole lot of female powerlifters, hahaha). The female benchpressing record is between 500 and 600 pounds, while the male record is around 1000 pounds.

Being bit cold to strangers or people I don't know= don't have any feelings. I love that one, and love seeing it applied to so many of my friends.

Listening to death metal= obsessed suicidal, or perhaps homicidal, maniac.

Forever love, forever dream.

Aim for the future, or the past will eat you up alive and think you are very yummy.

It might depend on the personality. Listening to metal is very relaxing for me. I'm  just slightly hyperactive, and things like working/sports or listening to metal calms me down. It doesn't clear my mind like a walk in the park would though.

Well, I read somewhere that people that enjoy listening to classical music have more issues with anger and such as opposed to those who listen to hard rock / metal. Those people are generally calmer....does that apply to you? :P

Well, i do love metal, hard rock and those indie rock music and so far, i am a calm,
rational and reasonable person. My friends who are more into classical and jazz music
tend to keep all ill feelings inside to appear cool outside but make us (me and Beth)
their sounding boards most times.

That chart is very true. XD

Haven't ever posted in this thread before but here goes. I'm still in high school mind you.

I don't say a word to people I don't know = I'm out to kill everyone who talks to me. (No one sits next to me on the bus... ;_; )
alternatively, I don't talk much = I don't want company
I have good grades = I do nothing but study all day long.
alternatively, I have good grades = I must like math (I hate math. >.< )
I listen to "that weird Japanese music" = I'm weird and therefore should be left alone by "normal" members of society.
Most of my clothes are black/gray/include skulls or chains = I must be emo/goth (I just like the style...)
I own a guitar = I must automatically be a god at playing it (I actually can't play at all XD)
My friends like to touch me a lot for whatever reason = I must be lesbian for letting them

Mmm that's all I can think of right now. Stereotypes are completely unfair. I wish people would get to know someone before they make a moral judgment about them.

If you could have told me anything...you would have known what love is...

Should I be worried that we have an obsessed suicidal, or perhaps homicidal, maniac on the forum? XD

If you *want* to be worried, I can't and won't stop you.

Let's see...
I've never had a boyfriend...this means I'm a lesbian...what's wrong with being picky!? I've never had a girlfriend either!
I like Metal-I'm gothic and emo
I like Japanese music/entertainment...I can speak Japanese.
....You know come to think of it...whether it's japanese or American metal...I still have trouble understanding what they're saying.
I study Pagan religions-I'm a devil worshipper
I study Astrology-I'm a psychic
I'm an adrenaline junkie-I'm suicidal

I'm First Nations there for...
-I live it a tipi.
-I hunt buffalo.
-I wear feathers in my hair
-I lift my hand and say 'HOW' (this one seriously bother's me)
-I go home and put on a buckskin dress and 'modern' clothes are wierd to me.
-I automatically know how to use a bow and arrow
-I ride horses to and from work/school/etc.
-I'm waiting for a cowboy to steal me away on his horse...wtf! Personally I perfer asians...I have an asian fetish

The actual true thing about our tribe is that we have those pretentious last names like "Runs Amongst the Buffalo" I'm serious...this is a real name and Crowshoe, and Strikes with a Gun.
Mine's Yellow Horn...but it's really annoying when I give my last name to people and then they end up calling me "Miss. Horn"...like my middle name is YELLOW!

First stereotypes encountered with foreign people:
~ I'm Finnish, so I drink much. Actually, I don't drink at all.
~ I'm Finnish, so I love Nightwish, the Rasmus, HIM, the 69 Eyes... etc. I do like a bit of Nightwish, but the others I can't stand.
~ All Finnish people love metal. No they don't. I do though.
~ In Finland, polar bears roam in the streets and sun never shines. Last summer I visited UK and it was a lot colder there than in Finland that time!

And then stereotypes that Finns have about Finland-Swedes. I'm a Finland-Swede, which means that I speak also Swedish at home.
~ Finland-Swedes are cheering for Swedish sport teams instead of Finnish ones.
~ Finland-Swedes would still prefer Finland being part of Sweden, like 700 hundred years ago.
~ Finland-Swedes speak perfect Swedish and do good at Swedish in school [it's a compulsory subject in Finnish schools]. I mean, all Finns don't do good at Finnish, so why the fuck would all Finland-Swedes do automatically good at Swedish?

Jesus.

And then the other ones... Ok. I mostly listen to punk, post-punk and goth rock. I've been active in Finnish punk and goth scene for a long time. I look like a punk or old school goth, leather jackets, Martens, mohawk etc.
And of course, that means I can't possibly like japanese music. Not at all! It's very annoying that people think that they didn't make any punk or goth rock in Japan.
Or that listening to punk or goth rock would somehow prevent me from listening to OTHER music too.

And all punks drink all the time, smoke and curse, hate the police, do bad at school, are shoplifters...

Ahhh, stereotypes! A regular part of my life, it seems.

-Because I'm learning to speak Japanese, a lot assume I'm one of those "OMG KAWAII DESU ANIMUUU ^_^" people. Sometimes I'm embarrassed to say I am learning because of that.
-Because I disagree with recycling and dislike environmentalist's views, I hate the environment. This one is annoying.
-I'm very underweight, so people think I'm anorexic. Anorexia is an eating disorder, not a measure of how much you weigh. I have been trying to gain weight for a long time but just am unable to.
-I'm an atheist who hates religion, so I must have no morals or values.
-I use "large, fancy words" for someone my age, so I must be pretentious, trying too hard, or a genius. I get this a lot. Truth is, I'm pretty modest, I don't even notice when I do that and I'm not that smart. Oh well.
-I'm 16 years old, so that must mean I smoke, drink, do drugs and have mass amounts of sex. To be fair, I've only met a handful of teens who don't, so maybe that stereotype is mainly true. I'm just an exception.
-Because I don't think sex is "evil" or "immoral" and shouldn't be so looked down upon by our country, I'm a whore with no values.

Ever since I got out of middle school, I haven't seen as many stereotypes, though. Also because I go to an alternative school: they understand and embrace me as the eccentric I am.
In middle school, they were always taking my wrists looking for proof that I cut myself. (To be fair, I dressed goth then. Now I'm aristocratic/steampunk/paper boy now.)

I can't tell you the way people react when I tell them I find Gackt unattractive.. But, I'm told I only think ugly people are attractive.  ::)

I'm sorry that you've had to deal with people like that, too.
