And I may be the only person here, chick or guy, who has actually fired a 50-calliber machine gun... so there!
(I like both types of movies, but NOT The Godfather or mafia movies in general. That really IS a guy thing! And what is it about the Three Stooges??)
I want to see Cowboys vs. Aliens. Is there a love stories buried in there?
I am sorry, I am a bit slow-witted. Does the sentence mean this:
I hate chick flicks, it's a guy thing=I hate chick flicks, chick flicks is a guy thing.
Thanks a lot.
I got this sentence from dictionary.reference.com.
I still want to know that in what situation might this sentence be used?
I hate chick flicks. Hating chick flicks is a guy thing.
What does it mean?
It's a guy thing means something like it's a male characteristic. The phrase refers to a guy's masculinity. There are some things that men like or don't like just because they are men. It's in their nature. Those can be referred to as a guy thing.
Most men like football: it's a guy thing.
Men feel awkward around doilies and lace: it's a guy thing.
Read again the exchanges made by the different posters in this thread. They were bantering and you may have felt they sort of forgot your question. However, you will see they were dealing with topics usually associated with male and female stereotypes. It may help you understand the spirit of the phrase.
Mensa, to my Dad, to my brothers, to a very staid boss who rarely cracked a smile - would all light up with recognition to any Curly Howard routine and then start laughing and quoting Stooge-isms. I don't know a single female who spontaneously, in the course of casual conversation, will start making Stooge-type noises and gestures. Must be some mutant guy gene. :?::silly:
