Malcolm figures that Macduff just needs to bust some heads to feel better about the death of everybody he was ever close to. Macduff replies that "I shall do so;

But I must also feel it as a man..." Macduff is showing his sensitive man side which really wasn't a sought after quality back then. Still Shakespeare was all about breaking social conventions. Not to worry though, Macduff will get his revenge man time later with Macbeth.
