50. All Asians know how to and eat with chopsticks.
51. Asians are otakus.
52. Asians are either Chinese or Japanese ( I hate this one....)
jaydonnd Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2014
Many should remember that most of these apply to Real Chinese who leave in Main land China.  And 90% of Chinese in China are not hard workers, in fact they are lazy and hate to study once they get past Highschool~!

mattconly Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
I was trying to think of my Asian friend with this but only two of this stuff only applied to him which is straight black hair and kung fu cuz of his punches and hits fucking hurts.

50th stereotype... I want to say small penises but it was invalid cuz of the team showers in football. Cats and dogs, don't know about that.

I think fucking crazed steriod asshole
queenofdafangirls Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Half of these can be applied for europeans as well. The steryotypes are not about us, they're about keeping and conserving our culture. Academics and music are very important in my family, I enjoy studying,I go to a greek language school,I enjoy foreign music, don't talk to boys, etc. etc., and many of my european and asian friends say the same. It's tradition for us.

Then again a lot of asians have a good work ethic, this may explain a lot of the academia, but so do europeans! Unless greece is now part of asia.

Even though I'm "white-washed" for an Asian. Many of these stereotypes are true for me, except I never learned a musical instrument, neither do I have one at home, I'm not that bad as a driver, I don't like to sing kareoke cuz my singing voice is "horr-awful," I never use tigerbalm, I don't take whatever photos that's talked about, I sometimes wear sneakers in house, I don't want to be a doctor, I don't use "la~," I don't seek tutoring often (I mainly go to tutoring sessions to do homework), and my parents never wake the house with TV or vacuuming (I vacuum on Friday nights)

Wumachine Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014
Its funny cause alot of these are true, my mum is definately stereotypical, also number 50 should be "asians have small penises"
CelestialAnnabeth Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I am a true Asian stereotype! Except my mum doesn't care if I wear makeup or not, last name is like 11 letters and very unique, I go to a lot of birthday parties and school parties, and my mum doesn't care what I wear as long as it's appropriate and not breaking the school rules and sadly the rest is pretty much true...
Nyaaa7 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014
I'm asian, and the sad thing is, almost all of these are true. 

50. Asians love anime

51. Asians love cosplay

52. Asian kids have to at least know mandarin, if not English

53. Asians eat everything with chopsticks

54. Asian parents want all their children to marry other Asians
proud2bstalker Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014
Eh? :/ Asia is a really big continent and doesnt compose of China, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and Japan so Mandarin is NOT compulsary and chopsticks are highly optional and are hardly used unless you're from one of the 5 countries i just mentioned. As for 50, 51, and 54--that's all in the individuals themselves. ^_^
CelestialAnnabeth Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
True dat
My parents will force me to learn Cantonese or Mandarin.
Things taste better on chopsticks...
Pretty much true...
hhh1anime Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014

thanks this helped a lot with my speech for shcool

19 and 8 is a fact.But even then this is because Asian stress the importance of knowledge.
queenofdafangirls Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Not true. It's called work ethic.
cshao Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014
bitch u dont know no fucking shit, if japanese ppl dont slurp when they eat the noodles, it means the food is not good, and that is being unrespectful to the person who cooked the food, they have to slurp in order to show respect and that they like the food, if u dont know asian culture then dont fucking say shit
amptcat Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
so ur saying the stereotype is true because of cultural reasons. that still makes it a stereotype.

6: my friend nags me about my posture, my mother nags me about looking 'cute'
14: for me, I only eat rice with mushroom sauce. Otherwise, barely eat it
15: just so people know, we don't eat dogs it's illegal in Hong Kong
24: I'm the only kid who can't play an instrument TT_TT
40: I'm one of the only two Asians in my dojo
44: hah! We do not have a- *checks living room* never mind
Maybe the 50th stereotype should be about crying for a 99%. Funny story- my female friend is also Asian. When she got a 99%, she bawled her eyes out for the rest of the period. Really. She actually did that.
queenofdafangirls Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Don't know if this is because of my family or anything, but 3/4 of the 50 steryotypes apply to me. I am greek. I just think it is because non-English speaking backgrounds have a stronger working ethic. I know mine does.
xXMaRTiaLaRCheRXx Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
12 is often true... I'm 100% Cantonese and most of these are true for me and the people I know. As for 12, my original Chinese name is 'Cen' but it got translated to something else. I was called names by my teachers for that. O.o'
johnDough0 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013
don't forget that asians get attentive when you mention the word "money"

Lol personally the bad sense of fashion is kinda iffy. Either an Asian wears amazing clothes or they are Bleh.

But my friends always tell me about how I fit so many Asian stereotypes and this is so true except for the boy things, music, and holiday study time(it's not hard to make high A's without studying overboard).
queenofdafangirls Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Yeah, i know a lot of asians who are not geniuses. I personally work very hard and love my academics so~~

it doesn't mean to be everything true,is just making emphasis what most people thinks bout Asians.for example im from El Salvador ,many sterotype us proud people in the way ,we don't like to be told what  to do"arrogant".
