Practically all movies based on books convert new fans to the books, but people seem to think it's only because of the movie that people read the book!

I also hate the stereotype that only lonely goth kids like vampires. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Or that only white people can be goth or like rock music. People look at me and think I must have two kids by now, smoke cannibus, not be able to pronounce anything longer than my name (and/or have an unpronouncable name) and hate white people.
Actually there are soooo many stereotypes. I'm supposedly homophobic because I have religion or a devil worshipper because I read sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. I must have no friends because I know HOW to read. Gah, the proverbial they gets on my nerves with their stupid assumptions.
I used to try to get my friends to classify me, put me in a box based on what they know about me and surprise of surprises I don't match anyone's preconcieved notions of what an eighteen-year-old, vampire loving, literate, mixed girl in the south is supposed to be like....actually that right there was breaking a few stereotypes in one sentence. Go me.
Yeah, stereotyopes bug me
