Stereotypes are the idea that everyone within a certain group shares the same characteristics. We can all think of stereotypes we’ve heard about different races, cultures, or genders. While some people may joke about stereotypes, it is a prevalent issue that students face in school. That is why we need to spread awareness on this form of bullying and come together to stop it. No, words can’t cause you physical harm but it can affect a person’s moral and mental state. So remind your friends to put an end to it or, if you use them yourself, be a better person and quit with the stereotypes.
