If I wrote a sentence like "There is a widespread misconception that men drive better than do women", could I replace "misconception" with "fallacy"? I read on a few websites that misconception meant a wrong idea, while fallacy meant a misleading idea. It really makes no difference to me. But I unintentionally tend to think of wrong ideas which people get through religious or traditional beliefs when fallacy is said, while I think of wrong ideas related to social reasons when misconception is said. Can we think this way? Thanks.
