  • I'm a divorced feminist so I must hate men. I am a redhead so I must be a tramp.

  • I would definitely have to say the typical stereotypes associated with me being a white woman married to a black man. It's disgusting the looks we sometimes have to deal with while we are out and about.

  • I'm Wiccan so I worship the devil.
    I'm from California, so I'm blond, busty, stupid, surgically altered and want to be an actress. (Bit in the meantime, I work at Hooters.)
    I have 2 children, so *obviously* they must have different fathers and I'm on welfare.
    I'm a feminist so I hate men.
    I didn't finish college, so I'm stupid.
    I work, so I have no interest or involvement in my children's lives or education. (Huh???)
    I'm a mom, so I'm unreliable. I will always flake on work for some "kid issue".

    I'm a woman, therefore I'm moody. If I'm upset about something, it must be because I'm bleeding. I can't be trusted to make important decisions because I'm too emotional or sentimental. I'm weak and helpless. I have no idea how to run a household or a business. I can't drive. I spend money recklessly and all my interests are frivolous.

  • You nailed it. I wear black but I'm not exactly Goth. I'm Pagan but I don't/can't worship what I don't believe in.
