Why men gotta do what men gotta do and women have to always understand?

A man gotta do what a man gotta do!!! Remember this line from the movies? Or from your own life? It's always said like being the ultimate masculine excuse. Like nothing can be added after. Consequently women gotta understand. Or accept. Or not? What are you doing when you hear it (if you are a woman)? Why are you saying it ( if you are a man)?

Don't agree with the "a man gotta do what a man gotta do!"... it's more like: "a human being's gotta do what a human being's gotta do!". So, in this situation, the human being is a man... and yes, he really has to do what he has to do. There's no question about it. The problem appears when the person standing beside him (can be a woman or another man) doesn't "approve" of it. The human ego knows no limits and it's hard to think that other person's actions are the right ones when you suffer from the outcome. But the hard truth is that they ARE the right ones, or better yet, they're not wrong. Now, comes the part where the suffering person has to choose how to react. And that, my friend, is like starting with the same theory all over again: "a human being's gotta do what a human being's gotta do!" They can either understand or not, there is no right or wrong way to dealing with that.

We already agreed in a previous discussion so you know I know there's no good or wrong :) It's just the short path and the long path. And the battle or harmony of the egos. Thanks for giving this discussion the short path/ long path bookmark opportunity. So I will do what a human being gotta do, wishing you love, hugs and blessings, my dear friend.

If a man would be able to tell me that way even if what he have done doesn't have any exuces, I will gonna slap his face left and right then i will tell him "BE ASHAME". It's not because were a woman we have to understand everything men will do. That would be so unfair. aLL of us had given a right for any situation. Everything must be fair between men and women.

Right, everything must be fair between men and women. But... that 'must' indicates an ideal situation. However, we all know ideal situations are not happening very often. I won't agree with the slap. Aggressiveness doesn't really works here if you want to be effective.

We all have responsibilities, both men and women. Fine, women tend to understand more because we love you and we don't want a fight but it doesn't mean men should always get away with it. We have our limit too. My response to "A man gotta do waht a man gotta do" is.. "Yeah right. Did i mention i have things to do too?"
