There is way too much sterotyping![/quote]

Stereotyping = statistical probablility. If I have A and B I will probably get C. If it's true more often than not it shouldn't be considered a stereotype, its a reality.

Stereotyping is basically taking what might be true for a few individuals and applying it to the entire ethnicity. There is a difference between culture and stereotype.

Its waht the southern women see on Springer.
And that is usually all you see on Jerry Springer. Where I lived (Paulding County) kind of reminds me of what I see on Jerry Springer(except there are subdivisions cropped up everywhere). If I go into Cobb County or Fulton County(where Marietta and Atlanta are), totally different world. Strange thing is, Cobb County borders Paulding County.
It depends on where you go. Although I do notice that southern women tend to get married earlier and have children earlier than their northern counterparts, this isn't always the case. I have a friend who was born and raised in Georgia(she grew up in Gwinnett County) and she is nearly 25. She has a boyfriend, but they are far from even getting engaged. Her parents are born and raised Georgians that they didn't have their first child until they were close to 30.

Basically, everyone on the east or west coast thinks all of us here "in the middle" are of the "southern" variety sterotyped on here.
