Men engage in negative gossip just as much as women do

News

Women aren’t the only ones who like to gab.

Turns out, there may be just as many drama kings as there are drama queens.

A new study finds men engage in negative gossip just as much as women do.

Researchers from the University of California Riverside are busting myths about the stereotypes surrounding gender and tittle-tattle.

Experts say gossip is simply talking about someone who isn’t present… It can be positive, negative, or neutral.

The data shows women gossip more than their male counterparts, but only when discussing neutral topics.

Both genders gossip the same amount when it comes to negative subjects.

The study also finds lower class people don’t gossip more than wealthier, more-educated people.

The biggest takeaway?

Everybody talks, regardless of gender.
