Stereotypes used in a joking manner can be quite funny and I enjoy them myself. It's when they're used to denounce everyone in a demographic as a serious statement is when it bothers me.

In certain contexts, yes.ghoklebutter
pretty much this. Generally not, but if it's being used in a hateful manner than yeah.

Why do you talk like a posh villain.

Because one of the traits of being a villain is being a total toolbag with a superiority complex.

They get the hot chicks.

I remember the protagonist in a certain spy/espionage film series would always steal the girls from the villain lol

depends on the seriousness of the allegation.

Depends on context they are used in. Most just annoy me, as it's mostly just poor humor that i'd expect from 12 year olds.

Only simple-minded people think it terms of racial stereotypes IMO, so usually I just chalk it up to simple-minded people being simple-minded.

Though a white American I grew up as a minority in my local community. However, the white stereotypes that were given to me were all positive. For instance, I remember one occasion a girl gave a long list of reasons why she wanted to marry me. The list included such things as having good credit, being educated, not being on welfare, and having the ability to make pretty babies. I loled.mindstorm

Damnnn

Can we like, become friends?

I'll totally do your laundry.
