"Man Up"

Post by Strong Eagle » Wed, 01 Dec 2010 8:19 pm

So where is this "man up" crap all of a sudden coming from? Sarah Palin says it once... and it is all over the universe... with today's sorry ass excuse for journalists spreading the meme.

What the hell is it to "man up"? Can women do it?

You reckon it's a logical progression or a take-off of that Texas expression that's been around since the mid-80's? Cowboy Up!

"Man up" has been around since the 80's. It means to take responsibility for your actions or to step up and not be a @*$$%.
