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.'
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.
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.
In college, you can be a slob. When you grow up, you keep things tidy. Everyone knows that.
...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
We want to look dapper, whether we're rocking the red carpet or not.
Not true -- we like boobs of all sizes.
