look at this fragile delicate flower of a man look at how precarious his value and identity is wonder at the marvel that is masculinity

This makes me want to cry blood.
This is a prime example of patriarchy at work. He can’t handle holding a fucking purse for 2 fucking seconds before he has to bust out his “man bag” so he can feel validated by his male peers who are rooting him on for not wanting to be feminine. Is his ego and sense of masculinity so fragile he can’t possibly brush it with the slightest amount of femininity before he crashes and burns??

Not to mention the fact that a symbol of feminity is being equated to a literal piece of shit.

or maybe he just doesn’t want to hold a fucking purse? god fucking damn it.

You’re right. We shouldn’t for anything in the world ever think about why he wouldn’t want to hold a purse, why he would feel it’s reasonable to drop it like it’s radioactive and then treat it both like toxic waste and a shameful secret, or why an audience of men would applaud him for treating it in this way instead of just holding the thing his wife asked him to hold.
Masculinity is too fragile to withstand investigation. We must protect it at all costs.

At its root, the “joke” here is that even coming in contact with or being seen touching a purse - a pink purse, no less, in case it wasn’t clear enough to you that it was a gender thing! - might wear off on this man and make him seem less like a man. He might be perceived as like a woman, or as liking or finding useful something that women like or find useful. And that would clearly be a bad thing, according to both the man’s actions and the applause. If he *just* didn’t want to “hold” a purse, he could so sit on that bench just behind him, and set it down beside him.
