If you're from the US, you've probably passed judgement on someone based on which state they live in. Sorry, but it just comes with the territory...literally.
A while back, Reddit user u/GeorgeVilliers asked people to share the stereotypes associated with each state. Here's what a few redditors said about every single one:
"College football has overtaken these poor souls' lives."
"It's made up of wild frontiersmen."
"Lots of oil is drilled here. Very cold."
"Small-town folks who basically live in Walmart."
"No money and no endearing qualities."
"Retired California baby boomers."
"A monument to man's arrogance. It is also one of the two states with a reputation of being a giant senior center."
"Weed-smokers, surfers, movie stars, tech bros, and valley girls."
"They all talk like 'The Dude' from The Big Lebowski. Expensive and liberal."
"Pretentious and fake people. Too expensive for people to live, so full of homeless people. Best weather in the country, probably the world (especially in Southern California)."
"Mountain Californians with somehow even more weed."
"Obnoxious stoners who think marijuana is a personality and software engineers who frequent Reddit."
"Where rich New Yorkers move to be close to the city, but still away from it."
"Urban blight and suburban sprawl."
"I don't even know. Car dealerships and ticket attorneys?"
"Where all the corporations and Joe Biden live."
"Retired east coasters with a special blend of chaos."
"Theme parks, meth addicts, rednecks, Cubans, and copious amounts of alligators. The other senior state."
"Southern belles and rappers."
"All soda is called Coke. Atlanta is the center of contemporary Black American culture and trap music."
"Surfers with leis."
"Most expensive state, year-long warm temperature, and home of Honolulu."
"Surfers and pineapples."
"Potato-growing country bumpkins."
"Potatoes, unless you have watched Napoleon Dynamite, in which case you probably think of that instead."
"It's one of the most average states. Lots of corn here."
"Where politicians go to get arrested. Chicago gets a bad rap for crime, too."
"A shittier Illinois. Oh, and corn."
"I will say this gently and without actual personal belief, but a lot of midwesterners in particular see Indiana as 'the racist state.'"
"Our food is grown here, I guess."
"Corn and presidential candidates."
"Horse riders and rednecks."
"People with no teeth and horse racing."
"Bourbon, horses, Mitch McConnell, and hill people."
"Cajun and Creole priests, chefs, and witch doctors."
"Drive-thru daiquiris, Mardi Gras, alligators, and great food."
"Flannel-wearing lobster fishermen."
"Lobsters and Stephen King."
"Politicians and gangsters, I guess."
"People who eat a shit ton of crabs. They really like their flag."
"A godawful flag and Old Bay seasoning. Also, Baltimore has a bad reputation for basically everything."
"They all go to Irish pubs to catch a sports games and eat clam chowder."
"Thick-accented Patriots stans who can't drive for shit and aren't afraid to talk shit."
"An apocalyptic wasteland."
"Economic decay. A land up north that might as well be Scandinavia."
"Overly kind people with funny accents."
"Basically Canadians. Lots of lakes."
"They all talk like people in Fargo, and they're all super pasty."
"Poorest and worst State in the union. If your state is shit, you can say thank god for Mississippi because it's worse."
"Poor and racist."
"Half delicious barbecue and half people strung out in trailer parks."
"Not as flat and boring as Kansas, but still somehow nothing to do. It’s called Misery for a reason."
"Mostly grizzly bears."
"Beautiful vistas, glaciers and shit, and cowboys."
"Again, where our food is grown."
"Four letters: C, O, R, and N."
"Godless gamblers and strippers."
"Strippers and slot machines in the middle of the desert."
29. New Hampshire
"Doesn't really have a major city — feels more like a Boston suburb."
30. New Jersey
"Corrupt political machines, the mafia, the shore, guidos, urban decay, and expansive suburbs."
31. New Mexico
"Where Breaking Bad took place."
"Turquoise and green chile."
32. New York
"Gangsters and Wall Street execs who are rude, impatient, and think they are the center of the universe."
"Expensive, with high taxes. Upstate is usually forgotten."
33. North Carolina
"Overly gracious, but kinda stupid southern folk."
"Doesn't really have any stereotypes I can think of. Like, The Andy Griffith Show was set there, but that's not even really a stereotype. I guess they're into, like, college basketball?"
34. North Dakota
"They talk like Minnesotans."
"Pretty average. Read: Illinois."
"Stereotypically bland middle America with nothing special."
"Considered the most average state by many. Cleveland sucks, and Cincinnati is full of people who eat weird chili."
"Pretty average. They have Amish people I guess?"
"Where the rust belt (Pittsburgh) and the northeast (Philadelphia) connect. Home of the first US capital city, Philadelphia. Has good cheese steak sandwiches."
39. Rhode Island

"North Carolina and Florida's inbred child."
41. South Dakota
"Mount Rushmore is here. That's all."
"Mount Rushmore and Wall Drug."

"The world capital of country music. Nashville is famous for a lot of country artists, while East Tennessee is Dolly Parton land (who, to be honest, is a great person to be known for). Memphis is known for barbecue."

"Full of Mormons and known for skiing."
"Rich socialists. Odd, I know."
"Where Bernie Sanders is senator and where we get our maple syrup."
"Crunchy granola people, but in a different direction than Oregon (think jam bands — not indie). Ben and Jerry's is here, too."
"Basically the beginning of the south (technically, Maryland is, but not culturally). There's a big Navy base here that has most of our aircraft carriers."
"They have ham and peanuts here."
"Oregon's slightly saner and even rainier (heh, get it? Mount Rainier) cousin."
"Rainy and tech companies."
48. West Virginia
"Hillbillies and miners."
"Appalachia and mountains."
"Cheese and beer."
"Wisconsin is very drunk. Not an unfounded stereotype — our drinking culture is pretty out of control."
"Nobody lives there."
"Cowboys and Yellowstone National Park."
