This series is about all things stereotype. It was born from my irritation at American characters in movies using ‘American’ or ‘Americans’ instead of people.
When I came up with the idea of having my alter-ego ‘correct’ one of these ridiculous comments I realised that this was definitely a comic series in the making.
I intend to do more of these, so if you want to see a particular obnoxious comment or phrase corrected by Gel Mel then let me know in the comments!
Comic: privileged white American whines
This one wasn’t intended, but the comment irritated me so much I just had to correct it. And it goes very well with the ‘America-centric’ theme of this post.
See Gel Mel correct gender stereotyping comments here: people, people! Gender stereotyping
And here Gel Mel corrects the clichéd statement ‘Life’s too short’ (I’ve always hated that one!)
