10 Unfair Assumptions People Will Make About You Just Because You’re A Girl

Miley Cyrus may have done a lot of stupid things on Instagram and on stage, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t headed in the right direction. Recently, Miley has been using her fame as a platform to speak out about issues that are important to her. She used an awards show to highlight the problems of homeless youths, she is a huge supporter of LGBTQ issues, and she’s been Instagramming pictures of her armpit hair to get rid of the stigma of body hair on girls.

Considering all of this, her latest project isn’t that surprising. Miley recently launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, a charity foundation that benefits LGBTQ, homeless, and at-risk youths. Miley will be posting a series of backyard sessions on the foundation’s Facebook page where she sings in her backyard with another famous performer to garner attention for her causes. It isn’t just about singing, though. Miley has already created a grant for a homeless center in Los Angeles, and she plans on doing more.

You’re probably wondering what this has to do with gender stereotypes. I’m getting to that, don’t worry! While promoting the Happy Hippie Foundation, Miley discussed her own sexuality a little bit with the Associated Press, saying not all of her relationships have been heterosexual. She also told Out magazine, “I didn’t want to be a boy. I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.

It’s easy to relate to what Miley is trying to say, especially when you think about all of the gender stereotypes about women that still exist. It’s frustrating to be a girl in this world when you’re not a stereotypical girl. Still confused? Here are 10 unfair assumptions people will make about you just because you’re a girl. Here’s hoping that having people like Miley Cyrus speak out about this helps change these thoughts.

Which of these stereotypes do you think is the worst? Which one do people always think about you that isn’t true? Tell me in the comments.
