I don't. I figure that if you don't know that not all (insert gender, age group, ethnicity here) act a certain way, then you're either an idiot or a troll. In other words, I assume that people have enough sense not to generalize entire populations even when their language suggests otherwise. Maybe I'm giving people too much credit.
Sometimes. I can't tell the ones asking the questions like "Why are all women/men like this?" are seriously ignorant or trying to agitate others. Of course not everyone is the same, that seems like common knowledge but I have been surprised with people on the internet before.
If you don't allow some generalization, we can't even converse. People love to hear something that is true for most members of a group, and find ONE person for whom it is not true, and say, "Therefore, everything you're saying doesn't exist." It's so illogical.
Of course i do, but not when i can sense theyre intelligent enough to know theyre not all the same. However, u are giving people credit. I've talked to a number of people who genuinely believe one entire group of people contains the same characteristic.
Not often, and I don't usually use the word "generalization" if I do. I'm more likely to say "you know that not everyone is like that, right?" Or "that's not always the case." Or something to that effect.
i have called it out before, but it's not something i do often. i do think you're giving people too much credit however. i've seen some appalling generalizations made by people who were not trolling, but instead were just ignorant.
