False facts about men people always assume are true
When I was getting my master's degree in counseling psychology, I took a course called Counseling Men. It was one of my top three favorite classes in all of grad school (and probably my entire education). Not only did it really make me think about the ways men might approach counseling differently, it opened my eyes to the way men's experiences and later behaviors are shaped not only by their own lives, but by societal pressures that we virtually never hear about or don't consider.
I learned that so many of the things we assume about boys and men are patently untrue, something our professor further illustrated by having each of us interview a man in our life. It made me wonder, what else do people assume about men that just isn't true when it comes to relationships, health, and just general, everyday living? I reached out to some experts to find out.
