Choose a community with which you identify. It does not need to be a community about which you have previously written, but it can be if you like. 2) Identify a misconception about the community. 3) Refute and disprove this stereotype or misconception. Use clear evidence to prove your point. Give specific details and examples of how you and other people in your community break the stereotype. 4) Explain why it is important to disprove this stereotype or misconception. What are the negative consequences of believing the stereotype? Example One Community: Feminist community. Stereotype or misconception: Feminist believe that all women should work outside the home and that women should never follow traditional gender roles within their families. Disproving the stereotype or misconception: I support women’s decision to be stay-at-home-moms and believe that it is fine for women to have more traditional gender roles within their families, as long as it is their choice. Why is it important to disprove this stereotype or misconception? When women who do not consider themselves feminists believe that their choices are being condemned, they feel alienated and avoid considering feminist viewpoints. Example Two Community: Parents who have adopted foster children. Stereotype or misconception: Being an adoptive parent is more challenging than being a biological parent because children from foster care have behavior problems and do not do well in school. Disproving the stereotype or misconception: Not all children from foster care have behavior problems, and many have the ability to do well in school. Therefore, being an adoptive parent is not as difficult as many people believe it is. Why is it important to disprove this stereotype or misconception?
