WritingRelatedFridays: Being told to ‘Man up’

Heyyyy, all you lovely people. How are you doing? I am doing quite well actually. I am just getting used to my au pair job. It has been about a week since I officially started working as the family’s au pair. Sometimes it can be both fun and frustrating at the same time. Oh well…

Anyway, I wanted to share a poem I came across some time ago that I liked and found very interesting. It was basically about how some men are told from a very young age to ‘Man up’ or ‘Grow a pair’. This happens especially to men who tend to show and express their emotions more or they do things that are not considered masculine [enough] because apparently men who show and express too much emotion are not considered ‘real’ man. What a load of crock! 75 to 80% 0f the time I am not/ do not act feminine at all, but does that make me any less of a woman [or femae]? Of course not!
