Who has more estrogen the beta-boys at BuzzFeed or the machildren cucks at AskMen?

Wow. Nearly every guy in the comments is a complete fucking asshole. It just accentuates the horrible pressure guys deal with to become emotionally stunted robots. Guys are allowed to have feelings. Encouraging men to bottle up what they feel is toxic and harmful. I salute all you in the video for speaking the truth!

"Do you ever say 'be a woman' to someone?" YES! ALL THE FRIKIN TIME! Do you know why? Because the women who these young ladies have to look up to are frikin badass; handle their shit, clean their face off, stand up and smile at life and go "you hit like a bitch". They remind you that their balls are so massive that God put them on their insides; and there isnt anything they cant handle. So yes, when I tell young ladies to "woman up!" I have a certain meaning behind it and they tend to handle the challenge up ahead. So when someone says "man the fuck up" it means that life is hard, the time frame between this obstacle and its completion is going to be hard, its going to suck, it might even be pretty damn painful but you will survive it. You will see it through. You will grow from it, and you know what? There will be a young man in the not-to-distant future that is going to go through the same thing, he might be right on that edge, and he is going to need another man who has already been there to say "dig deep motherfucker, this shit is going to suck, embrace it, and know that when this problem passes you will still be here and you'll be a little bit tougher and wiser for it. But the first step is acknowledging the issue, and then take immediate steps to fix whatever is broken. Is it within your control? No? Then onto the next issue. Is it within your control? Yes? Then you figure out a solution, make a plan, and follow through." Man the fuck up "Its said by people who dont care about you" "It means swallow your emotions" Do you know why you dont share your problems with people outside of your inner circle? Because there are two types of people. Those who dont care about your problem, and those that are happy you are having them. So quit your bitching and man the fuck up. Your inner circle, some of your elders will say "man the fuck up" because they have been there, they have done that, they have the t-shirt and you know what? Its frikin your turn. So you can either cry, mope, and whine in the corner; or you can be a frikin man, man the fuck up, and handle your shit! Maybe show your inner circle, family, friends, and elders that when the pressure is on, the chips are down, the adrenline dump has happened, people are scared, the world has turned to shit, and everyone else is having their emotional moment/break downs where nothing makes sense and they are caught up in the "why God why?!" moments; you, YES YOU!, MAN THE FUCK UP and HANDLE YOUR SHIT and start putting pieces back together and prove that you are a pillar that the family and others can lean on. Does that mean that you have to be a cold lonely island, cold as ice, and hard as wolverine in sub zero frozen temperatures while in the only strip club his side of the Canadian wilderness? NO! It means that you keep a tight group of, maybe, 2-6 guys who are dedicated to lifting each other up, a group of brother like individuals who you can vent and share this with that wont share any of this with the outside world. Hell with a dedicated group of 2-6 guys, there is very little you cant do if dedicated enough to a common goal. Are your guys pushing you to be better? Not just be a good man, but a better man? Are you getting your dose of adrenaline? Are you lifting heavy things when possible? Are you taking the stairs instead of the elevator? Are you reading? Are you improving yourself? Are you moving forward in your life? No? Well... be a man, man the fuck up, and handle your shit. Motivation is great. But self discipline is better. You are responsible for you. You may not be able to control your situation, but you can control your conduct, your emotions, yourself. This isn't limited just to men, and should definitely be expected from our women and people in general. Regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. Becoming a better person often requires you to man the fuck up. The struggle is the way. If your circle isnt pushing you forward, you need a new circle.

I sat through it all and listened to this. This was painful to listen to. These guys in this video really need to un-f themselves, get a hobby, handle some challenges and develope themselves. They sound, literally, broken

For all of you young men, wondering what a “man” is, because your screwed up mothers thought “I don’t need a man to raise a child” Read “Iron John” by Robert Bly.

Be responsible for your actions, drive on, do what needs to be done. Modern feminism has turned this phrase dirty. Until I hear things like toxic femininity being thrown around, you are just talking misandric nonsense.

Everything these boys are saying and yes I do mean BOYS in the fact they don't show ANY full understanding of this term, is wrong

I refuse to watch this. I only clicked to say this.....If you have to ask this question then you are not a man. It is the reason american society is declining. Masculinity is a right of passage. And there are fewer and fewer "male's" that are becoming "men". All the better though. More women of good quality for someone like me to choose from. Stay limp snowflakes.

In my mother's opinion being a man is cooking yourself and doing your own laundry... At least that's what she is saying me when she adds 'be a man'..

Be a man is good advice most of the time.

Be A Man in my opinion plus in general's facing personal fears head on instead of hiding from them. It's a barrier that once you're through, a jolt of electric happiness trickles through your body.

these are my opinions, obviusly most of these dudes dont know what BAM means,I swear a few of these dudes are gay, and when someone tells you to man up or be a man, they mean get a hold of your self, control your self, don't be a pussy, stand up for your self, be confident, don't cry, don't give up and try again, basically any strong qualities not just physically but emotionally, and will power. every guy is aloud to show emotion but most guys don't want to be seen as weak so they only show their vulnerable side to girlfriends and family and a few friends, if a guy shows too much emotion in public its weird and pathetic, people see you as weak, instead of losing your shit how bout being calm and collective, and be a god damn man the kind of man someone should look up either a kid or a grown ass man

Being a man means that you have to take care of problems and get shit done and never give up
