my passion for stereotypes is an old one.
more than 10 years ago i made personality stereotypes website to collect information on stereotypes.
i printed 1000 copies of personality stereotypes book and i am still giving this book to everybody i meet.
i believe that stereotyping is unnecessary and destructive.
i hope people who saw personality stereotypes website or book relaxed a bit and stereotyped a bit less.
i also dedicated substantial part of my art to exploration of stereotypes through text.
but it still amazes me that i still hear negative stereotypes.
even from people who have been around and are somewhat accomplished.
most recent one was that “italians are not effective”.
this was said by a north european and i seems like another “north is superior to south” ideology.
these kind of statements are simply racist.
please do not stereotype :)
if you do have to use a stereotype, then at least use a positive one, like “mothers are great cooks”.
