I believe it is attributed to the "jock issue" or alpha male. Men that are in nature jerks or a**holes are trying to protray a dominant statue or presence. It is mainly used to make themselves look bigger then they really are. In other animal species on the planet, the males will puff out their chest this is the same concept. The problem is that in the human brain, once a male has or is trying to obtain the alpha position in a group or even in a relationship, they don't know how to turn it off or when they have taken it too far. This is one of the reasons why women view men as animals or dogs. They have a natural instinct to be the best or the one with higher power.

I would say the same reason women have to such B***ches. That is not a very nice thing to say, but in the end I think the reasons behind the attitudes are the same. I don't know the exact reasons though, and I disagree about the alpha male thing, because even the guys who accept that they will never be the leader have the potential to be great a**holes. Just as all women have the potential to be great b***ches. It is the potential it is in all of us. There is usually a catalyst though, and in my own personal experience that catalyst can be the strangest of things.

Uath, I truly thought that was talking it a step too far. I am fairly new here, and as a whole I try to be friends with everybody. As such I find that I have to moderate my conversations, to express my opinion with out offending the people I am talking to, or other members. But yea, that was pretty much what I was thinking at the time.
