I think stereotyping is definitely generalizing when it comes to religion, gender, cultures, anything really. It’s unfortunate. I’m not sure how the stereotyping begins. It’s most likely different for each but for me, I usually ignore it and make the decision for myself. I’ve met many people that have not matched their “stereotype.” It’s that old saying- don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
