Why do women....?

Why do women hate it when men give the response, "It's a guy thing" to a question from them? Especially when that answer, totally applies?

Perhaps because it's disrespectful? It also shows laziness on a mans part that he isn't willing to discuss it, explain it more fully. Perhaps, if it's an activity that is being referred to, she might be just as interested to take part. If it's one of those disgusting habits some people have, she won't want to take part I am sure. However, women do need to remember that women are more verbal than men....just accept the fact that the man in your life does not want to sit and have a 3 hour discussion about what he thinks of your latest pair of shoes...they just don't that...accept it and move on.

It's a cop-out. I would rather hear "can't put my finger on why, but I just like it," than "It's a guy thing." For one thing, I have spent plenty of time hanging around with guys (throughout high school and college most of my friends were guys, I have 2 brothers, 7 nephews, and have worked mostly with guys over the years), and observing them - so I have a fair idea about "guy things". I really hate it when I ask a question for looking for straightforward information, and get some off-the-cuff response that really does not fit the situation from a guy; then have to spend five minutes trying to pull the real answer out of him. And it isn't guys whose verbal communications skills are lacking that do this - they tend to stick to the quick, easy, simple answer or go straight to "I dunno".

Women hate it because they know there is really a logical answer hiding behind the cop-out answer of "it's a guy thing". Men should realize that their spouse just wants to know them better. Sometimes the logical truth is by far better than the "easy answer"... even it is a "guy thing". Just for posterity... I have never once told my wife "it's a guy thing" to any question she has asked me. Women are much more intelligent and understanding than most men give them credit for. My advice... be honest, be open, and stop telling her "it's a guy thing". She will most likely be telling you that "you ain't gettin' none... and that's a girl thing" the next time you give her the easy answer!

Maybe because it's a guy thing doesn't really answer the question. Sometimes we just want a straightforward answer. Like I for example am trying really hard to understand my husband. If i ask him why. I would like to know why is it a guy thing. Like there has to be a reason that guys are the way they are.. it didn't just happen.. some sort of social grooming has made our culture so closed in.

cuz.....we like specifics. that isn't specific. wats a guy thing?? we just feel like you aren't telling us..or avoiding it. When we ask a question...we want a straightforward answer that explains it logically. It also feels like guys are trying to make it so that we aren't in with them. We want to be accepted in. It feels strong....and hurtful. Its almost like saying. "you're a girl. You'll never understand". Kinda like...putting us in a category of being a GIRL..and not being ourselves. "hey!...i'm not just a girl! it's me!! I can understand!" and we are all different. Some can understand. Some can't. just give us a shot at it...you know!

I will tell you why it bugs the he** out of me when he says that. It's a guy thing it's like saying your I.Q. is not on my level therefore you will never understand the male capacity of this activity testerone and it is disrespectful to me as well. However he just said to me he just want to be lazy and don't want to take the time to explain it as much as he love to correct me on every little damn thing.

Because when a man says "Its a guy thing" he is not giving her the chance to even try to understand.

Well they feel like they are being excluded from understanding something that will be important to the relationship.........it's like putting up a fence when one shouldn't be there

Because we, as women, do not know what "a guy thing" is. We often need more clarification than that.

Cause they don't understand "guy things". Women tend to analyze everything, guys just accept it and move on.
