it's her day

Why do people still even say 'man up'? Like only men can soldier on, suck it up and get better, faster, stronger? So then when did we get used to seeing single mums making both a happy home and ambitious career work? When did we stop being in awe of a woman that puts on that brave face and best lipstick and gets on with life? When did we stop congratulating strong female role models, our bosses, our mothers and our sisters? Why say 'man up' when women have got it nailed?!
This isn't by any means a new phrase, and this isn't by any means a dig at men - it's just, ya'know, let's be equal in this, because fuck knows girls have got it hard at times too.
