Redhead's are supposed to be fiery temptresses with a higher than normal libido. Blondes are supposed to be flaky but fun. And brunettes are supposed to be intelligent and serious.
Is there anything to these stereotypes? Are there more that I am not aware of?
My boyfriend's own mother judged me before she even met me based on my hair colour. She saw a picture of me and said to my boyfriend, "Aren't redheads supposed to be easy?" I have also had my best friend's step-mother tell her she shouldn't be my friend since I am a Jew (since all redheads must be Jewish, of course). In any case - feel free to share prejudices you have experienced based on your hair colour or any stereotypes that you associate with the different colours of hair out there :D
I'm a blond, yet I'm ALWAYS on time. Punctuality is very important to me and has literally been engrained in my blood, thanks to my parents. I'd hardly consider myself dumb, as the stereotypes go. It all depends on how you carry yourself... I know plenty of people who abide by their stereotypes in an effort to be more "likable" - which I think is completely absurd.
I've had many professors crack "dumb blond" jokes while in the middle of teaching just because of few of his students, including myself, possessed blond hair. I just laugh, sometimes they are humorous, however it makes me wonder what it's doing to the rest of the class's perception of blonds. Could it be effecting them at all? Who knows.
Plus hair color isn't natural anymore. People are constantly dabbling with different hair colors on themselves - just because they felt like it. And that's fine, to each their own.
And that's just WRONG to be anti-semetic. We're in a day and age where we should be progressing as a human species rather than regressing. Look at Hitler, yes he was successful as a leader, however the rest of the world (excluding japan and italy) hated, despised him and thought him to be clinically insane and was promptly taken down. People seriously want to take after that? That is absolutely, utterly disgusting. And I hope they get what's theirs to realize that they're completely, undoubtedly in the wrong.
I don't know about stereotypes, but I did get my fair share of 'firecrotch' shots growing up. Never been thought to be jewish though. I would think with the strong willed stubborn nature of many(not all) redheads they'd be the least 'easy'. In any case everyone is their own individual we all share some traits and characteristics, and any coincidence between physical attributes, is just that, a coincidence. I wouldn't let it get to you, the opinions of people that judge so easily should be held in in extremely low regard. One thing I have noticed though, that is slightly annoying, is all the blondes vs brunettes debates that leave out, in my opinion, the best option, which would be the redheads.
That's racist! LOL Anyways, while some stereotypes are true to a point, these ones are generally not true from my experience. And besisdes you can't really tell anything anymore because girls change their hair color like every other week so yah there is no real basis for these stereotypes. Another thing is moms can be jealous when their little boy grows up and have another woman to take care of him instead of her, so I wouldn't let it bother you too much.
I had no idea nor have ever heard of these stereotypes. However, now I'm mildly curious. ;)
In all seriousness, stereotypes are just that... stereotypes. They are not entirely true until someone makes them so. For instance, I'm a mix and look Hispanic. Therefore some people assume I should speak fluent Spanish. I don't, so you could say I break away from that stereotype.
Well, a study in Germany suggests that women with red hair have sex more often than blondes or brunettes. And when blonde/brunette women dye their hair red, it's supposedly a sign to their partners that they want more passion. I don't know how true any of that is though. I've also never met a Jew with red hair. Most of the redheads I know are Irish, and there's my Polish great-grandmother, but I would never assume that someone with red hair must be Jewish.
In movies, blondes tend to play the more delicate, "damsel in distress" roles while women with dark hair play the mysterious femme fatales. Those are the only other stereotypes I can think of.
There's nothing to stereotypes though. Everyone we meet fits some category that we already have stereotyped first impressions about, it's an automatic response, some of us just follow them more than others. (Guess who did a project on first impressions for psychology, haha)
Hey, I'm glad you put this up here. Regardless of what people think, discrimination and stuff really does go on. I'm naturally blond though I do get highlights every few months or so. People tend to think just because I'm blond that I'm not intelligent or capable of doing something important. Many guys also think at first that I might be really easy, just by being blondes. I think in general, brunettes get the most respect. Though to some extent, I can see why. Usually promiscuous girls, who are easy and stuff tend to die their hair blond, because in a way they think that's hotter, so it just screws up the whole system hehehe. Well that's what I think ;).
Hahaha. Everyone knows that brunettes are the new stupid, redheads are still totally hot and blonds are quickly becoming the smartest and most confident of them all. Dyed hair is usually a dead give-away that the person underneath is hollow and prone to scamper off after shiny objects.
No, seriously though does this question really have to be asked? It's not what you have but how you use it. Every person IS according to how they behave and NOT what they have. Regardless of how many people realize this. Take for example your best friend's step mother. It sounds like she behaves like a total idiot. It's really too bad that she thinks that way about you and I hope you and your friend can still be fine.
People who judge others on their hair colour are idiots. I always get the dumb blonde comments/jokes. People think I'm easy etc etc. It's just really frustrating to have people think they know what you are like just because of your hair colour, people that don't know me don't know anything about me even though they may claim to just because I'm blonde. It really really annoys me how any single person out there that hasn't talked to me can think they know anything about me-they don't know sh*t about me until they talk to me.
i died my hair red once, wanted to since I was 7. All of a sudden guys assumed they could come up to me with a sexual innuendo and expect me to respond by taking all my clothes off right there and f*** them till the sun comes up. When I politely as possible declined their offer, they called me a stuck up, tease. Oh more than once, I got called fire crotch. With black hair I was emo, and my natural light brown made me the smart, and boring girl. Damn stereotypes.
You don't want to date someone whose mother is prejudice...and if all red-heads are fiery in bed that doesn't mean you're a slut!As for your religion...it shouldn't matter as much as your character does.Bottom line these people are the ones with the issues, not you, and it sounds like it starts from the parenting!
I think all of those stereotypes are wrong I'm brunette but I'm not serious yeah I'm smart but no genius if anything I'm crazy, a little carefree and definitely fun and I'm definitely more of a hot head than any red head I know. Which is a lot. So I don't think these steroetypes are true, maybe for some people but then again everyone is there own person. And all red heads shouldn't be Jewish either, my dads a red head and he's baptist so hair color sterotypes aren't true the may apply to some people but definitely not everyone
well I am only on here because my best friend was up set because of all these blond jokes and stuff because she is a natural blond, and I am a natural brunette and I wanted to make her feel better about some brunette stereotpyes but there's not really any on here
