    • My story is that I’m Blonde, Polish, large chested and yes... Here it is.... A Hair Stylist!!!

      As for defining me...YES......  Because I know I’m perceived one way I will completely confuse people when they realize I’m not dumb.......estatic

    • My stereo type is that I’m Asian and short, but super slim I am not.  I’ve been heavy for a long time and now medium size.  I’m shy, yet can be vocal and sometimes a brat.

      People have no clue of what I do, perhaps I’m perceived as dumb.

    • I’m African-American of course, full-figured and love myself but am making some adjustments health-wise for my life. I’m 5‘9 which I love my height, I stopped coloring my hair a few years ago so that would give me a salt and peppered look, I’m very outgoing as well as outspoken, I have no fear of man. I love and do interior decorating, but my passion is singing.

      Defining me, one would find that I am NOT as hard as some perceive me to be but has a soft and kinf side to me a giving and caring heart.

    • My Irish shows sometimes. I’ve felt stereo typed for being female and small built.

    • My stereotype:  I’m short, very southern, I can talk loud, conservative, stubborn at times.. and I love to laugh and have a good time....but what some people don’t know about me is that I’m really very compassionate toward others and that I love helping other people especially those who are truly down on their luck. I’m an animal lover especially of dogs....

      I’m definitely a Taurus.....estatic

    • Eva!! I think you‘re my long lost twin!!estatic

      I’m actually half German but I look exactly like my Sicilian mother. My dad was a marshmallow of a man - very sweet and easy going and extremely kind. My mom is fiery, outspoken and was the boss in our family. I asked my dad once who I took after most and he said “honey you got the best of both“estatic Always the diplomat!

      I know, though, that I talk a good game but in reality I’ve got a much softer gentler heart than my mom.

    • I am Mexican American..or American Mexicanestatic Common stereotype I heard was lazy, uneducated and on welfare.
      Also short, fat and ugly and we all look the same.

      In my family education was very important, my cousins and I would compete to get good grades and perfect attendance. We were hard workers with most of us starting out in the fields, further encouragement for us to strive for good grades and not have to do manual labor all our lives.  

      We take pride in how we dress and how we present ourselves. Sadly there are a few in the family that do take advantage of the welfare system and I am quite vocal about my disdain for them doing that when they are quite capable of getting a job. I am far from feeling defined by any of the stereotypes.

    • I don’t know the hertiage of others unless they tell me. Yesterday while visiting with friends I was surprised this topic came up and had I been pressed to guess theirs I’d have been wrong. ;oD  Oh, and I never would have made the keyboard player as an attorney, but he was arguing his case yesterday, telling me I could walk a mile through 3 feet of snow to visit my friends. The man is crazy! LOL  

      Annie, my apologies for you feeling that I was implying your views of Obama was racist.

    • Like Eva and Cynthia, I have Italian blood flowing through my veins on my mom’s side...my birth father was German and English and I have a faint recollection of him.

      Most people who knew me growing up would say I was shy, homely, stupid and not worth bothering with..yes, it was a challenging childhood for me.

      I have struggled with some health issues since I was a kid, and definitely had confidence issues since I suffered with acne.  I had issues with men and never felt loved until my husband entered my life.

      Now I have Fibromyalgia, but through all of this, I am a better person and never want pity..just strength, endurance, happiness and love!

      I know I have found many of those things here.
