    Default Not your typical prejudice.

    I think it is funny how people will tell me I am so non-judmental-
    I don't care if a person is GAY, I don't care what a person's skin color is- I don't care what their religion is, I don't care if a person has tatoo's and piercings etc.

    What is interesting to me is that it isn't that I am not judgmental- I am just not judgy wudgy of the typical things-
    I am very judgmental of cheerlearders for example and hard core Friends fans

    my fear is not that my daughter will come up to me one day and say - hey mom- I'm a lesbian- no- I fear my daughter will one day come up to me and say I want to be a cheerleader- to which I have a reply already ready in which I will say- why couldn't you have said something I could deal with better like hey mom I am a lesbian- not a cheerleader! oh the horror and humanity- I thought I raised you right but apparently I failed as a mother.

    now I don't know what I will say if she says she wants to be a cheerleader and is a lesbian- I need to prep a response for that- and if she is a Friend's fan to boost then I'll just have to shoot myself

    but anyway- does anyone else relate to this-
    a more quirky way to discriminate or look down on people?
    do you have an unusual prejudice?

    What do you have against cheerleaders?


    And yes, I'd have a major problem if my children turned out to be certain things, like fascists or communists. I'd much rather have a freedom-loving lesbian or gay child than a super-hetero totalitarian.

    P.S. I never understood the appeal of Friends, but it wasn't bad enough to be upset about. I know several very intelligent people who really liked that show.

    Haven't you heard? Cheerleading skips a generation. You'll probably get along fine with your bluestocking granddaughter.

    Many a fine person has been a cheerleader in high school, then taken up birdwatching, opera, Italian or other less rah-rah pursuits. The important thing is not to go nuts when she announces she's on the squad. She'll tire of it sooner and go back to studying calculus. A caveat: teenaged girls love to shock their moms and if they can do it by becoming cheerleaders, by gum, that's what they'll do.

    My daughter is 15 and likes to watch Project Runway. She also an avid reader of The New Yorker, Atlantic, Esquire, Women's Health and numerous other magazines, some to do with fashion, photography, art & design, others about current events. I figure she'll probably grow out of being fascinated by couture but will retain her interest in reading. Many kids her age don't read any magazines, so I don't flip out about her reading material.

    Can't help you with Friends. My daughter loves The Office and keeps showing me skits from it on YouTube. Some are amusing.

    Good luck

    Cheerleading would definitely be pushing my tolerance threshold, but I think I could deal with it.

    Probably not winning any points with that pic in this thread, but I share the sentiment, to an extent. I am also just a huge sports fan, and cheerleaders are a nice tradition in them, I think.

    I'm not proud of it, but I'm prejudiced against senior citizens in many situations. And yes, I realize that my punishment someday will be to become one.

    I'm not totally prejudiced against senior citizens, but I don't buy into the whole "older and wiser" line. Old people have about the same ratio of intelligence and wisdom as every other age group. Some of them are downright stupid. I don't mean "intolerant," either. I mean "offensively, mindbogglingly stupid/how did they get to be this old?"

    Not all cheerleaders are dumb, bubbly, superficial beings. I was a cheerleader in high school, for a year.The cheerleading coach actually recruited me from the gymnastics team, because they didn't have any tumblers. When i first was asked to be on the team, i laughed because i as well had this prejudice toward cheerleaders, but after joining the squad i learned that i was mistaken about a lot of the things i had originally thought about them. i gave up cheerleading, because theater interested me more and i ended up being a much better actress than the clumsy cheerleader i was.

    Anyway, the only prejudice i can think that i have is my aversion to drug dealers/hardcore users oh and parents who bring all 10 of their kids to go shopping at wal mart.
