2. IMHO...yes
Its cheap, it leads to incorrect and stupid conclusions and perceptions, and it associates you with people who stereotype.

You deserve better company than that trash.

3. In general....no
Generalizing and stereotyping are normal methods of filtering through the enormous amounts of information that we are constantly bombarded with. The brain takes those shortcuts because it's easier than starting from scratch every time it encounters stimuli.

We all do it, and most of it is completely subconscious.
