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

Stereotypes are bs.
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.1
