“unnecessarily provocative language, including derogatory or calloused language about women”

“In that regard, let us point out a few specifics we believe are inconsistent with the high road. . . .

  • Using unnecessarily provocative language, including derogatory or calloused language about women. Referring to certain women as ‘small breasted biddies’ or ‘lumberjack dykes’ is not likely to serve an edifying purpose in this context. We note that this language has caused a good deal of anguish among pastors and elders of CREC churches who would otherwise be supportive of Pastor Wilson’s ministry. Pastors should be careful not to give women reasons to avoid seeking help from the church. Instead, we should make it clear that the church is a place where all people are treated with honor and respect, and where victims can find grace.”

“pencil-necked wusses”

To point out that this is what people are trying to do is not “whining.” I do not find the existence of such tactics unusual or odd in the slightest. Welcome to earth, kid. But boil it all down. The reason I am controversial is that I fight. Not only so, but I show every indication that I will continue to fight in the future. I promise to fight, and I promise to fight all out, and if you don’t want to get any of those particular cooties on you, you will continue to have many other evangelical options. Such alternatives to fighting include throat-clearing, at-the-end-of-the-daying, on-the-other-handing, seminar-toodling, and panel-discussion-counterpointing. The only downside is that your men turn into pencil-necked wusses and your women into the kind of women who first make and then tolerate pencil-necked wusses.

Moscow-Pullman Daily News op-ed: “New Saint Andrews flirts with muscular Christianity”

MPDN 5-24-17

“In 2010 the recruiting headline was ‘Yo, Secularism, Why Don’t We Step into the Alley?’ The blurb described the NSA faculty as ‘not timid in a rumble,’ and they wanted to make the students ‘dangerous’ so that they can ‘throw the lies of this age up against the wall, lifting wallets and the occasional gift card.’ It ended with ‘an invitation to a brawl.’” —Dr. Nick Gier Continue reading

“a tacit (implicit, in principle, not overt) acceptance of the propriety of rape”

One consequence of rejecting the protection of good men is that you are opening yourself up to the predations of bad men. I fully acknowledge that this is not what such women think they are doing. They think they are rejecting the patriarchy, or some other icky thing, but when they have walked away from the protections of fathers and brothers, what it amounts to is a tacit (implicit, in principle, not overt) acceptance of the propriety of rape.
