Stereotype Out

Stereotyping is the art of putting things into boxes. How about, for a change, we break out of that box? Be yourself. Make a difference.

Group Details

Hello, we're Stereotype Out and Mr. Stereotype doesn't like us.

Since you are here, you must be ready for our very unique minds. We are some of the farthest people you can find from stereotypes.

Instructions: I want you to take that mental picture of us in your head and put it through your mental shredder. If you judge someone, you should base things off fact, not opinion. Biases are a key component that Mr. Stereotype uses to make innocents fall into his grasp.If you're going to make generalizations, then make them about desserts, not people!

And so, thank you for reading through the instruction manual. I will take this time to ask all present (meaning you) to not leave any rude comments or anything of that sort.

Thank you, and welcome to...

Stereotype Out

Every 10 days we are going to have a Ten Day Topic. We'll have a topic where for ten days, I'd like you to post opinions, events that have happened to you with that topic, and anything else having to do with the topic. If you ask, "Why ten days? Why not a week?" then I'll tell you why. We're writers. We're people. We don't fit inside boxes.

Ten Day Topics MAY or MAY NOT last the duration of ten days... but we'll see!

Ten Day Topics are currently offline. We apologize for your inconveniences. Is that a word? Maybe? Perhaps? Well, words aren't to be stereotyped either.

Please post in the "Ten Day Topic:" section!

Next Ten Day Topic(s): ???

"What time is it?" is a series of lightning-fast questions from our Admin Wanderer that we're going to answer everyday. Yup, there's a new question everyday. Go and answer a question, and you might even be able to post a new question! Once the Figgie clock hits midnight, you can post a new question that you want to see other's reactions on! Plus, the Admins can award "points" to whomever has the coolest answer. At the end of the week, maybe the winner will get a free lengthy review...? We shall see...kekeke! (Explanation by our very own Wanderer with edits from Bianca Corgrott!)

Click the "What time is it?" discussion and check it out! New question EVERYDAY!
