  •  It means stop acting like a boy. (1+ / 0-)

    I find it interesting that some people seem insert a sexist meaning in to this.   To me, telling a grown man to "man up" is telling him to stop behaving like an immature boy.  

    I hate to go here, but this is one of things where I really think some people just look for things to get offended about.   It's overzealous political correctness.  

    If what was being said was "Don't be a girl!" or "Stop being a sissy!", then yes, that would be sexist.  However, I genuinely don't see how telling a grown man to "man up" is in any way referencing women.  

    To hell with the teabaggers, I'm voting a straight Democratic ticket.
