LOL >w< *falls out of chair laughing*  This was priceless.  I swear a good lot of it is true.  'Course, some of them aren't, and to those who were insulted by them... these are stereotypes, not ACTUAL facts. Work on ya sense of humor bruh XD!!  jkjk.  But seriously, don't flame; please just politely correct people. :)

Anywho, 24 was hilarious.  My parents actually put me in piano and violin lessons, but being the awesome (and stupid) rebellious child I was, I was all like "NEIN!", joined band instead of orchestra, and then proceeded to learn the flute, saxophone, and guitar. Mwahahaha! Killing stereotypes ftw! Tho pretty much all my Asian friends are in orchestra... most of them playing the violin... but that's just cuz they weren't awesome (*cough* stupid *cough*) enough to break away. ;3c

And then there's 23/36, which are basically every conversation I have with my mum.  The worst part is she always does it at night, just before I go to bed.  I'm all like, "dude, if you want to guilt-trip me, couldn't you at least do it when I'm actually working so I can get off my arse and get stuff done?  NOT when I'm trying to SLEEP and just feel like crap now?!!"  Course, I've never actually said this to her.  That would be incredibly moronic.  XD

Oh, I'm Chinese, btw.  Tho my dad's actually Taiwanese and my mum's from (a still British) Hong Kong... so I like to think I'm part British. Which I'm not :P  Oh well~ A kid can dream.  :3

I killed almost every single stereotype and my mom does nothing about it. She just carries on with watching her videos on youtube.
BerryThistle Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ahahahah. I'm asian and I have to say about 95% of this is true for my case (of course it varies for every Asian family). I have to say 20, 39, 40, 43 are so wrong. Please, kung fu power? give me a break.
While some others like 22, 23, 24, 25, 31, 35, 36, 42 are true. (again, for my case it is).
I know in Taiwan, it's common for hosts to prepare extra slippers for the guests (to show hospitality and etc). It's also for hygiene reasons too because the floor is always dirty.
For number 23, that's my everyday conversation with my parents.. 
parent: "how far are you in your studies?"
me: "*inserts certain amount*"
parent: a) good. now go back to work. b) what the heck are you doing! that little? go back and study!
36 is the most stressful. When my parents start talking (especially my dad) it literally turns into this 2+ hours lecture/life lesson and strangly enough, at the end of every one of them, my dad goes to sleep.... great way to end it  -___-

The 50th stereotype should be if you're Asian everyone assumes you are Chinese. (I've seen this so often and I myself, has been classified as Chinese--as well as Japanese and Korean, when really, I'm Taiwanese. Taiwanese is completely different from Chinese... .-.) It's as if such ethicities as Vietnamese, Filipino, Thai, Malaysian, etc does not exist >.>

Our surnames have little variety?!

When was the last time you read a book?

The Chinese alone have over 4000 different surnames.

You probably guess how many surnames the other races have in Asia.
Pacificalto2013 Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would like to respectfully disagree with these stereotypes.  Being Asian, I know these are not true.  If number 39 were true, technically I should be afraid every time we need to drive somewhere.  Stereotypes are hasty generalizations of a group that do not necessarily reflect the reality.  Different cultures have different ideals, and we all need to respect these differences, no matter how strange they seem.

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.
jeffreyzhang96 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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)

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...

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. ^_^
