Don't be a pussy, brave it, be daring.
"Hey man, finish this bowl."
"No dude, I'm baked as it is."
"Come on pussy, man up."

Female shaming term used to make men act against their own self-interest and for the benefit of women. Also used by manginas and white knights in the futile hope of scoring with women.
That white knight told me to "man up" and take care of that chick who is on welfare and has three kids by three different dudes.

To take responsibility for your selfish actions, reflect on the consequences, and make an effort to make things right through words and actions.
Why are you sexting me? I'm pissed at you, and will be until you man up.

An uplifting imperative, derived from the saying "be a man about about it" - to grow a pair, to stop being childish, to stop complaining etc.
This saying can be used in many situations.
1) 'C'mon Gareth, man up! There's no time for tears in this day and age.'
2) After some hurtful comments from a female colleague, Gareth turned to Jimmy for advice. Jimmy said "Grow a pair and man up!"
3) 'Gareth is acting so childish - he needs to man up'

1. To acknowledge and to take responsibility for your own actions.

2. Don't blame others for your own mistakes, problems, or issues when you know it is your fault and not anyone elses. If it is someone elses fault that you are in a situation or predicament then do the best you can to deal with it.

3. Some people say it means not to cry; that is incorrect. We all have feelings; to deny them is to lie to yourself and others, "MAN UP" and deal with it. If you don't you only cause yourself physical, mental, psychological, emotional, and spiritual damage; and you also affect those around you in a negative way as you take it out on them, instead of dealing with it properly. EX: Jesus was a Man among men; he didn't "cry" He "wept tears of blood." He went to the cross, He manned up for things that were not His own.
Even if you are not a Christian/Believer you can surely admit that Jesus was not a wimp, coward, or a liar - He said it, and did it.
1. He did the right thing, he went back and (man up) told his boss the truth and accepted the consequences instead of letting his co-worker take the fall for it.

2. She accepted (man up)responsibility for the accident and told her Mom that she is the one who broke the antique.

3. I felt so sorry for the sobbing man. His immediate family died in a tragic head-on car accident because someone else was drinking and driving. Overall he is dealing with it the best that he can - he is letting it all out (man up), mourning as he should. He sure does have the right to do so.

After a long night of high octane™ drinking.... the procces of hanging over occurs. To deposit these prodiougous feelings a beer or some other alcholic beverage is in order, to insure the release of the harmful intoxicating feeling.
After Timmy was drinking with high octane™ all night, he arose out of bed with a raging headache. To release the pain from his body he had a man up session and felt much better.
