Now, when they say this, they are referring to the fact that they’re not going to worry too much about doing things exactly right.They don’t care too much about deadlines, for example.So keeping that in mind, I was objectively saying to my self, this stereotype couldn’t be true, Mexican women have only a slightly higher fertility rate than the National average (15% higher)…but being who I am and being culturally curious, I dug deeper to find out this.So let me start with less controversial and well received stereotypes and then gradually move on to the more offensive stereotypes. Everyone knows that the western style parenting is so forgiving and thoughtful, the whole paradigm behind it is this: “I brought this kid into this world and I will do everything I can to make him or her happy, even if it means that I have to work twice as hard and that my kid might become a spoiled little brat.” Asian Parenting is very strict and the paradigm behind it is this: “My kids have to work so hard to achieve all the things that I dreamed of but I couldn’t achieve myself”.
What irritates the hell out of Mexican people is stereotypes like “Mexcians only eat beans or Tortlillas or Tacos or Borritos or Fajitas”.
I am sure most Mexican people won’t mind a conservative stereotype as such: Many Mexican people love to eat beans. Since most Mexican stereotypes originate in the United States, let me dissect this stereotype in two halves, keeping in mind that I have no first hand experience in this area and I am just relaying the general beliefs based on my research: I lived in Mexico for a while and the Mexicans will be the first to admit that they are lax.
