[AWH Classic] Good people do terrible things

[AWH Classic] Good people do terrible things

I have a few more comments on the Doug/Jared Wilson fiasco. Perhaps needless to say, I don’t agree with the general consensus that the situation is temporarily resolved because Jared Wilson “apologized.” For one thing, in my opinion he did no such thing, and for another, an apology wasn’t really […]

Must read: On Cage Fighting, “Masculinity, Misogyny, and the Fear of Losing Control”

Christian and former cage fighter Matt Morin has a fantastic article on mixed martial arts (or MMA, the technical title for cage fighting) and its implications for thinking about masculinity from a Christian perspective. It’s a brilliant and thorough takedown of Mark Driscoll.

The “Sissy Boy” Experiment

Trigger warning for suicide, physical and emotional abuse, heterosexism, cissexism. In the past couple days CNN’s Anderson Cooper has been reporting on the case of Kirk Murphy, who at the age of 5 was subjected to gender “therapy” intended to make him less effeminate and prevent him from becoming gay later […]
