Want to get rid of that gender stereotype that you just LOOOVE shopping? Stop posting about your recent sprees on Facebook.

According to The Daily Beast, a recent analysis of all the words written on Facebook indicates that females use more "emotion-laden" words, as opposed to men who use objects and expletives. If you look at the word cloud above, you'll see that a few favorite female words on which Facebook picked up included: "shopping," "ugh," "<3," "excited," and "yay!" But as The Daily Beast states, however, "f—k," "xbox," and "himself" were among the more popular male terms. Dare we say that stereotypes exist for a reason?
