Gender Myths

By Comments Off

As a follow-up to yesterday’s article about the harm of misogyny in our culture, here’s a great one from Thought Catalogue about the pitfalls and inadequacies of gender stereotypes.

  • No, men don’t always want sex all the time.
  • Women can pay for dinner, clothes, cars, a home, etc. 
  • Men can clean a bathroom floor. 
  • Women definitely curse. 
  • Women can be pretty hilarious. They can also be pretty darn nerdy.
  • Men like all types of women… and all types of men.
  • Women and men dress in whatever clothes and wear whatever makeup they like because they want to.
  • Men have the right to commit, or not, to any relationship type.

Now, instead of “men” or “women” what if we just put in “People”?
