About

Stereotype Me is a multi-pane exploitable image featuring several women holding signs displaying various stereotypes followed by a satirical custom 4th panel.

Origin

On March 5th, 2007, DeviantArtist Loserology posted a four-pane image titled "Stereotype Me," featuring photographs of young women holding signs representing various stereotypes, including "I'm Punk So I Must Rebel," "I'm Asian So I Must Like Maths," "I Dye My Hair Crazy Colours So I Must Be Looking For Attention" and "I'm a Person So I Must Be Stereotyped" (shown below, left). On June 11th, 2011, Redditor Skylarity uploaded a photoshopped version of the image featuring a pizza in the bottom-right panel with a sign saying "I'm a pizza so I must taste fucking amazing" to /r/funny[4] (shown below, right).

"i dye my hair so i must want attention"
No but posing for a image set, which you hope will be seen and passed across the internet does.
"I am a person so i must be stereotyped"
You know it would be great to be able to understand everyone's troubles and life story the moment you meet them but we don't. so we use the basic functions of our minds to extrapolate from the general and apply the general to the specific until more can be gleaned about the specific.
I'm not special
