This isn’t really closely related to anything, but I came across the origin of the word stereotype in a reading for another class and I thought it was pretty fascinating. In the 1700s, the stereotype was a solid metal (later plastic or paper) plate used in printing. It was brought as a noun into English from the French adjective. In the 19th century, it meant something without change. The term was not used (or at least not recorded) to mean a fixed and oversimplified belief about a particular type of person or thing until the 1900s (I saw both 1922 and 1953 as dates, so not entirely sure there). I just thought it was interesting how the word has evolved through time. (If this is actually common knowledge, my bad, I’m apparently behind).
