    I think I break every single gender stereotype. I'm female and am not into cooking, make up, dresses or high heels. I'm not caring and am very laid back about matters. People are surprised how strong I am, how many pull ups I can do, how many kick ups I can do with a ball and how well I can climb. I'm very bad at multitasking too and can only focus on one thing at a time, people often say to me 'I thought women could multitask'. I also have the mannerisms of a lad apparently. No I'm not a lesbien despite all this, Ive broken that stereotype too.

    You've pretty much mentioned every French stereotype I can think of :rofl:
    I thought of more as well

    - I don't smoke
    - I'm not a mysterious, passionate lover *cries*
    - I do shave.

    - I wear glasses, but I am not a nerd.
    - My attendance is and has always been horrible, yet my grades have always been at least above average.
    - I have good grades, but I rarely study.
    - As a 17 years old college student, I did not live with my parents/adoptive parents/uncle/aunt/grandparents.
    - I got my first white hairs at the age of 15.
    - I am a Christian, yet I am not a religious fanatic, support gay rights, do not try to convert people to Christianity, do not shove Christianity down people's throats, and do not preach about how you will go to hell if you do not follow Jesus and my God.

    - I am a liberal who is against legalising marijuana/cannabis/etc.
    - I am Romanian and neither a gypsy nor a thief (nor a vampire).

    - Usually, people first go to a night club after they turn 18. I first went to a night club when I was 11.
    - I prefer Pepsi to Coca Cola by a mile.
    - I watch plenty of anime, but I am not a weeaboo, do not cosplay, do not write terrible self-insertion or yaoi fanfics, do not live in my mother's basement, do not f*** anime pillows, do not have a waifu/husbando, etc.
    - I do not drink alcohol at all (not even at parties), nor have I ever been a drinker of any kind.
    - I have never watched 'adult films'.

    Me too :lol: friends used to constantly ask me to tune instruments for them because my ears are sharper than their little electric tuner things. I can tell if something's out of tune, even if it's just by a couple of Hertz.

    Erm. There's a few for me though..
    • I'm a writer, but I'm badly dyslexic.
    • I'm a computer nerd, but I really ****ing hate computers.
    • I'm good at maths, but awful with numbers.
    • I'm a nerd in general, but I like some modern music (which apparently we aren't supposed to... :lolwut: ).
    • I'm an Asperger but I'm perceptive and empathic and can get along with people.
    • I'm not a hipster, but I have a collection of LPs and tapes.

    Just off the top of my head
    Same here apart from being dyslexic and hating computers.

    Religious but I don't ever talk about it (none of that shoving it down peoples throats nonsense)
    I'm an art student but I don't take xanax and wear hareem pants
    I'm welsh and I don't shag sheep
    I'm white and mayo makes me feel ill
    I left home at 17, but not because my family is poor or because my parents are abusive
