    I thought it would be funny to have a thread for what stereotypes you break rather than one that you fulfill.

    It could be a stereotype about the country you're from, the city you're from, the uni you study at, or anything you want... But let's try not to get this into a flame war lol.

    I'm Asian and I'm not good at Maths :hide:

    I'm from a nasty Midlands crackhole but I speak with a posh accent and I've never taken any drugs (weed doesn't count).

    Don't crucify me, I'm on the retrograde mobile app.

    That not everyone suffering from OCD washes their hands all day or lives in a spotless house. My house is an absolute tip :teehee:

    That not everyone in Scotland loves haggis. I can't stand the stuff :laugh:

    4 of the top of my head... I don't drink Iru Bru (or any fizzy drink for that matter).... I don't do that Highland/Social dancing crap (I really hate it).... I don't do burns suppers and I don't own a kilt.
    I love Irn Bru

    "Every girl loves shopping in order to de-stress". That one gets on my nerves big time, I have been called a bloke many times because shopping for me is hell.

    Also the stereotype my family throw at me, when they say girls cant do DIY and that and that girls can't carry heavy things, broke both of them.
    Uh oh.. nah I shop to release stress too lol.

    And I can't DIY for **** haha

    actually you wouldn't think it but I'm technically a musical genius...and I'm not a weird motzart type
    I have absolute pitch which only 1 in 10,000 people have
    I found out in music class when I happened to be talking about each note the teacher was playing and he looks at me with this bright face and asks "do you have perfect pitch?" as if I'm jesus christ, and I had no idea what it was
    I'm like this kid except maybe not quite as sharp:
