There is a lot of talk nowadays about stereotypes and how harmful they can be for people in general.

I hear a lot of talking about how we should make an effort to get rid of stereotypes and how relying on stereotypes is an offensive (and sometimes racist/sexist) thing to do.

But before we continue, we need to understand what are stereotypes:
"A stereotype is a preconceived notion, especially about a group of people. Many stereotypes are racist, sexist, or homophobic."
(Source: https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/stereotype)

So... How do we get rid of stereotypes? More important than that: Do we WANT to get rid of stereotypes?
