Man up... Whatever that means: "In order to prove — or defend — his masculinity, a guy needs to act in ways that will readily be recognized as masculine. But "readily recognized" is often enacted by conforming to stereotypes of masculinity, particularly aspects of masculinity such as violence (i.e., fighting), risk taking (e.g., excessive alcohol consumption) and some forms of hooking up and promiscuous sexuality (e.g., who can find the ugliest partner), and hiding one's feeling (except anger)."
