Response to “Man Up”

by dhlui4

Guante, a slam poet responds in spoken word to “Man Up”, addressing some of the stereotypes and misconception on masculinity.

The definition of masculinity has been redefined and altered over the past decade and has become lost in modern society and culture, dressed up and hidden behind hollow terms that few can accurately define.  What is the true definition of masculinity?  My response to “Man Up” is to take responsibility for my own personal development and growth.  To live morally straight and honest to myself.  To inspire and cultivate the same beliefs in those around me and to respect and learn from those who are willing to teach.

Man up, what’s your response?
