13 Myths About Men You’ll Be Stunned to Learn Aren’t True

Group of men

Good news, fellas – new research indicates the so-called “beer gut” is not real.

Even if you toss back a couple dozen PBRs, it won’t make a beeline for you stomach and increase your waist size. Amazingly, that’s only one of many, many lies you’ve probably heard about men. Here are some myths about men that you need to know are simply not true:

We don’t hand out cigars when babies are born




We can’t say when this stereotype started, but it’s time to update it. No hospital would allow people to hand out any form of tobacco.

We don’t leave the toilet seat up




We know it’s not smart to do this. Leaving the seat up created an extra step if we run towards the john after enjoying Mexican for dinner.

We don’t mind watching Lifetime




This is pretty much all due to Jennifer Love Hewitt on ‘The Client List.’

We don’t watch Spike TV




Seriously, ask a guy to name the channel on his cable system.

We don’t always try to ‘fix’ things when women complain to us




We’re just trying to show we’re sympathetic. Of course, this applies only when we listen. That myth is actually true.

We’re not all pigs




Yes, some of us are actually nice guys.

We don’t use the Internet to watch porn




Some may do that, but more use it to follow our fantasy football teams.

We don’t always enjoy working on cars/fixing things




Women just think we do. The truth is we do it so we don’t have to go antiquing with you. We’d rather be inside watching TV.

Sometimes, we actually do read Playboy for the articles




There’s some darned good writing in there.

We’re not messy




In college, you can be a slob. When you grow up, you keep things tidy. Everyone knows that.

Some men do eat quiche




…but only when forced. If they didn’t, we’d be able to find a good picture of a guy eating one.

We do like shopping for clothes



Well Dressed Man

We want to look dapper, whether we’re rocking the red carpet or not.

We don’t like big boobs




Not true — we like boobs of all sizes.
