"Man Up" Is Sexist... So What!?

The PC police apparently have too much time on their hands.  No they are all up in arms over the phrase, "Man up!"  They argue strength is not just a male trait, that women can be strong too.

Well, duh!  You'd have to be a complete idiot to know that women can't be strong.  But the phrase should not be band or poo-pooed.  If anything, it should be said more and more.

Today's American male is a shadow of its former self.  No longer are American men looked up to by the rest of the world who once equated them with the mythical cowboy of the old west because of their grit and intestinal fortitude.

You are more likely to find images of America's elite males openly weeping than you are to see them showing bold toughness.

American men should, "Man Up!"  In fact, when they do, they seem to become wildly popular.  Take for example Chris Christie's launch onto the national stage when he started talking tough to teachers unions.  Then there's Scott Walker, who became a household name when he stood up to public employee unions who were rigging the system and blackmailing tax payers.

Love him or hate him, its hard to argue that Bush's most popular moment as president came when he stood above the rubble of 9/11 and declared, "They'll hear from all of us soon!"

If America is to reclaim its greatness it is going to be through bold leadership.  Whether they be men or women at the helm, its time our leaders MAN UP!

The guy in the poster doesn't even look like someone who would say "man up". To make their point, they needed to have a NW Euro phenotype person with a cowboy hat, not a south Asian looking hipster.
