  • It's a joking way of saying people are going to question his masculinity, or not let him hang with the guys. I've only ever heard it semi-facetiously; taking to a joking extreme the idea of "no guy would ever..." or "every guy should..."

    For example: "Babe, I can't carry your purse for you! If anyone sees me they'll take away my 'man card'"

    "Steve, what do you mean you don't have a chain saw? That's it; hand over your 'man card'"

  • "1. Man Card: to be accepted as a respectable member of the male community. Can and should be revoked by other respectable males for doing non-respectable-male things. ex: We had to take away Henry's Man Card because he cried in public when Kristina dumped him."
