Imagine the feeling of being completely and utterly backstabbed by someone you thought had loved you? In F. Scott Fitzgerald 's The Great Gatsby, It 's easy to realize the many similarities two men Tom Buchanan and George wilson have together. Both men show their own ways of dealing with violence, Their attitude towards women, and the ways they react to being cuckolded.

Tom handles certain Situations very questionable while dealing with women. His attitude towards woman comes off extremely repulsive and abusive. “Making a short deft movement,Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand” (Fitzgerald 37). This quote shows it all about Tom, it shows how he chooses to insert dominance and how he handles situations that could be avoided for the majority of the time. Tom thinks that Adultery is alright as long as he comes back to daisy whats the issue with it? "And what 's more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time ” (Fitzgerald 252). For whatever reason Tom thinks thats its completely normal or acceptable to behave the way that he does, Treating Daisy the way he does. George for the most part handles his attitude with women in a more moderate way having a more respectable reaction then how Tom handles it. “He had discovered that Myrtle had some sort of life apart from him in another world, and the shock had made him physically sick.” (Fitzgerald
