CHEMISTRY HELLPPP!!!!!!

Water is often instrumental in promoting disproportionation reactions however, it cannot itself disproportionate?
IS THIS TRUE OR FALSE?????

Water does this "ionization" reaction to a very small extent

3H20 <---> H3O+ + 2OH-

This only occurs in 1 in 10^7 molecules. So the answer centers on what you mean by "cannot".
