3 pages in length. Assumptions, created from stereotypical thinking, can be as misleading as they are incorrect. For the most part, assumptions are based upon incomplete information, embellishment of what little information there is and failure to confirm the information as being accurate before stating it as fact. One popular assumption is that males are all but immune from having an eating disorder, inasmuch as females are the only ones who suffer from this psychological sickness. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth; while boys and men may not hold as high a statistical presence as girls and women, they are nonetheless just a capable of fighting an eating disorder.
