Maybe you can't stand the "model minority" myth because it lumps so many different groups together and ignores your lived experience. Your parents never had prestigious, white-collar jobs, and it frustrated you that society seemed to think all Asians were doing well while your family struggled.

Perhaps you hate that Asians are often portrayed as nerds in TV/movies. You were never into academics, and it always bothered you that your teachers and classmates assumed you'd be a total genius.

Or maybe you're sooo over the stereotype that Asian women are bad drivers. It's just stupid to make such a big generalization like that.
