What is it that keeps some men from growing up, from manning up as they say in the States?
How is a man a man when he is still tied to his mother's apron strings?
It may be cute to some, sweet to others
to see a grown man so keen on all things soft and furry.
But as much as I resent macho man, there is nothing as off-putting as a man
who cannot act as a man.
It is perfectly okay to cry and be gentle
but not cry at every little thing.
It is expected that a man will share the duties of a household
if not head it.
But a man who is neither manly nor house-trained
just will not do.
Man, you have to man up!
