Erasure

Age

Young people should not preform management roles; they do not have the skills or the attention span to follow through with the role.

Young people today, do not know what they are doing, they are lazy, irresponsible and lack dedication, we are going to ruin our society. Here's a link that is ironic when you think about who is calling us lazy. <http://www.cnbc.com/id/101659975#>

As we age we lose our ability to learn. Not true!

THE LEARNING EXPERIENCES OF OLDER ADULTS AS UNIVERSITY STUDENTS Barbara Smith

National or Ethnic Origin

Stereotype: All First Nations people are lazy and don't want an education. Experience: I knew a First Nations person in my program last year who was very dedicated to his schooling.

Being Canadian, I'm told that I'm supposed to be extremely nice and say 'sorry' all the time. These things may be accurate about my personality but people shouldn't just assume that because I'm from Canada that I will be nice, say 'eh' and 'sorry' all the time.

all Mexicans are lazy and go into America illegallyhttp://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/rearvision/how-mexican-immigration-helped-make-america-great/7269356

Stereotype: All Asian people are great at math. Experience: It's just simply not true, i have many Asian friends who's math classes were their worst subjects.

There is an assumption you know everything about every Nation within the Indigenous community.https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-first-nations-map

Stereotype: Italians eat pasta and can cook

Reality: I am from the Italian decent and in fact I hate cooking and I am not good at it. I hate lasagna and I do not eat pasta every day for dinner although it is delicious!

Colour

I was 17yrs old when my family could afford a trip together. The airport security had a hard time believing that we were all a family since half of us were white and the other black. *Love is blind to colour.

Race

Women of colour endure the same oppression as caucasian women.

Religion

Sex

Female Firefighters are inferior to their male counterpartshttp://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/female-firefighters-bullying-sexual-harassment-fifth-estate-1.3305509

the Irish are drunks.In 2014, the Wall Street Journal ranked every country on Earth by how much booze its average citizen consumed. With a mere 11.9 liters (3.2 gal) per annum, Ireland didn’t even make the top 20.

Being a female inevitably means that people are going to assume that we can not do the same things that males can. For example when I am working out a the gym guys will say you're a girl you can't do that or they assume they can do everything better than us. Just because they are stronger doesn't mean I can't do it it with perfect form. When things like that happen it gives me even more motivation to prove to them that girls are just as strong as males.

Sexual Orientation

All gay men have AIDS in a sad stereotype I have heard before. The following link debunks that horrible stereotype. http://www.catie.ca/en/hiv-canada/2/2-2?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=1&utm_content=en&utm_campaign=hic

Same sex couples should not parent children because it takes a man and a women to properly parent kids. http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2014/07/05/3456717/kids-raised-by-same-sex-couples-are-healthier-and-happier/

Marital Status

Children of single mothers will do poorly in school and are from broken homes. http://www.iloveindia.com/parenting/single-parenting/

Disabilites & Abilities

People think that when you are identified as "exceptional" or "gifted" that "you shouldn't complain, you have it easy". I have spent my whole life fighting that stereotype.

Those with a physical disability must also have a corresponding intellectual disability. Personal experience: an individual has the same cognitive capacity before and after a paralyzing accident. Their legs, not their brain, were injured.
