"This “man purse” talk has to stop.
People of both genders carry bags. In these bags, they put their stuff. Women carry purses and briefcases and plenty of other styles. Men carry briefcases and messenger bags and plenty of other styles. This is how it is and how it will always be.
Calling a man’s bag a “man purse” is like calling his shirt a “man blouse.”
