Episode 105 - Man Up!!! What does that even mean? Is it okay to be masculine in the 21st Century?

"Imagine the disappointment of a wolf when he sees a little Yorkie-poo; That's how your grandpa feels when he sees your man bun."

Is it okay to use the term "man-up"? If not, are you saying that men like qualities that should be aspired to attain? Men have taken a bit of a hit over the last 25 years and it is never more evident than the bumbling, emasculated father figures depicted in TV. In today's episode, I sit with barstool philosopher Dan Molen to dissect the meaning of being a man in the 21st century. Where does the male role come from? Was it a social-evolutionary survival tool or a construct of modern society? Theoretically, would it be okay to tell a little girl to "man-up"?
