It's time to stop using the phrase "man up." "Men don’t have a monopoly on strength, whether it be physical or mental," Vogue contributing editor @michandrews writes. "That a go-to phrase for conjuring courage and shouldering on through pain evokes men in particular is, frankly, pretty backwards, when women are the ones who persevere through monthly periods, pregnancy, labor, birth, and—oh, yeah—higher rates of systematic discrimination, gender bias, single parenthood, and persistent body image and sexual double standards."

What a load of drivel.
