You can change it so it displays a folder instead of the top most icon in the folder. Right click on the stack and under "Display As" choose Folder instead of Stack.

The stacks icon in the dock is dependent on the files within that stack. Essentially, the stack icon displays the first file alphabetically at the front, and other icons are then behind. You could always make a folder within the stack and make sure it is first alphabetically...?

Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...
