Re: Stereotype or prejudice
I can believe in stereotypes about people without being prejudiced against them. Apologies for any offence in the next bit but I'm going to use a rather common stereotype in the UK. Many people believe that all blonde girls are not very intelligent, rather ditzy, have no common sense and are generally airheads who are only interested in their looks. Those are, I agree, quite negative things to say about someone. However, even if I believe that stereotype, I might not be remotely prejudiced against them. I might absolutely adore stupid, vain, ditzy blonde girls.
Of course, that particular stereotype is entirely unfair and there are plenty of blonde girls who do not fit the description at all.
It's true that some people might be prejudiced against blondes and their reason for that prejudice might be based on the stereotype, but one does not automatically lead to the other.
