    I looked at those site. It's not helping me answer the question. My question is how can grouping and stereotyping can both be legimate in some instances.

    When separating men and women dressing rooms at the gym, or at work, I would probably stereotype and group women vs men.

    Also do you or anyone think stereotypes are based of fact but not true, or have no bearing on the truth whatsoever?

    Stereotypes are often like white lies: a smidgen of truth, wrapped in a damn lie. Other times stereotypes are just plain damn lies.

    It's a stereotype that "Asian" students do better in school than whites, blacks, etc. Now ... if someone were to study the reasons why and find a way to use those ideas to help other kids do well, it might help.

    However, lumping together all people whose ancestors have come from somewhere in the Orient is a bad idea. Not all are education-oriented; some are in gangs; etc.

    So you'd have to be careful how it's phrased, and you'd have to have facts to back up your statement -- SAT scores, university entrance rates, etc.

    If I were planning to eat at an Italian or Thai restaurant, I'd expect to see many dishes representing that ethnicity. As a woman, I do not walk in certain neighborhoods at night because of their reported high crime rates.
