    What's the stereotype for your nationality?

    I dunno if this comes as offensive to anyone, (feel free to take this down if it is) but I am wondering if any of you would like to provide me some of the things about your nationality that people always assume about. Please don't forget to add your nationality!

    I'm writing something for lit class and this would help a lot. Thank you everyone!

    Anything about physical attributes? That one's giving me a much more difficult time.

    Physical attributes? Like what do people expect me to look like when I say I'm German? Blonde hair, blue eyes, in a German beer girl outfit, drinking a huge beer. I mean, quickly google "german girl" or "german beer girl" and you get the idea.

    Edit: I stumbled on this super cool project a few weeks ago that might have some relevance. This artist took hundreds of images of different women from different nationalities and came up with an "average" face for each one. I guess it gives you an idea of how a certain nationality might be stereotyped to look physically.

    Besides the large Caucasian part of me I'm Filipino/Chinese (my grandma came directly from there when she was 16) From what I understand bad driving is a big one for the whole thing. Physicaly super slanted eyes (Mine aren't super but as far as things go it's the really only Asian trait I got..) Someone once told me I had...Asian... calf's....?

    I don't... really know. We were talking and he said Asian women have awesome calves... and I was like... what? I showed him my calve and apparently it's Asian. It was a new one to me. Granted like I said I don't exactly look Asian so I don't get a ton of the stereotypes unless it's from my friends who know I am.

    I'm Asian myself, but I don't have the faintest idea of how calves differ in each nationality.
    I'll keep it mind tho, thanks

    I really enjoy my paternal heritage as my Dad was awesome hence the love for my Asian ness. However through the spawning and such I got a rough deal...
