This is actually a misconception that occurs occasionally, which often
leads to the marginalization of individuals who are affected by it. In
the US in 2009, 16% of sexual harassment charges in the workplace were
filed by men[1]; an earlier telephone poll in 2008 indicated that half
of sexual harassment reported by males was from males, the other half
from females.[2]

Everyone has to die. And in a hundred years nobody's going to inquire
just how most people died. The best thing is to do it in the way that
strikes your fancy most.
