    I mean, I'm naturally blonde and I'm actually very smart
    I guess that's a stereotype
    Or maybe you're naturally smart and actually very blonde :holmes:

    It's tough times, family against family. :puppyeyes:

    My grandad is from Ireland so obviously he supports manchester united too. He met Sir Bobby Charlton in a village somewhere ( idek ) and they talked for awhile or something and he's supported Manchester United since.

    Still don't like Mourinho much, he's got no chill.
    Sunderland > Newcastle :shh:

    Mourinho is a bit of a muppet but we're doing okay now

    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:

    That was the right answer! :smug:

    Well he's a decent manager but as a person I don't think I'd like to be stuck in a lift having to talk to him or soemthing. He'd just complain. I'm just happy as long as Chelsea don't win the league so go on Manchester United. :awesome:
    Although I like Liverpool too as a "realistic winner of the premiere league because clearly Sunderland will not".

    I lived in Grimsby for 6 years and my brother was born there!
    I don't remember loads of it but they had good cheap fish and chips!
    And I have a mild disability too but it's more walking long distances and being slower than other people. Congrats on getting to uni, it's tough when you have disabilities.

    I'm young and black, but I don't follow modern day hip-hop trends e.g.I'm the last guy you'd ask about Kendrick Lemar and the other new rappers that keep getting the hype nowadays.

    Also, I don't believe there's a god, eventhough I grow up in 'Religious' Africa

    Every stereotype to do with being black, except the fact that I can run fast.
    I'm quick for a Chinese person tbh. But you'd probably be faster than me lol

    The vegan stereotype. Most people believe vegans won't shut up about being vegan, and force their opinions on everyone, but most people don't know I'm vegan unless they try to offer me food. I know I can't change anyone's opinions, unless theyre asking me or are interested in animal rights...

    Whenever i'm having dinner at my Chinese friend's house, they finish all the rice in a blink of an eye so it's a war to get another bowl. I lose in that aspect
