    I just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you how much I enjoy your blog and the facebook group you created.

    In case you care how I found you: I found your blog through a comment you left on Wendy Shalit’s blog way back in September. However, because of technical difficulties they had, the post was still on the front page.

    Now that that’s out of the way: I think I’ll just make a brief list of things introducing myself, and my reactions to the group and blog.

    -I’m 23 and grew up on the east side and eastern suburbs of Madison, WI
    -I’m a Catholic and tend to agree with most if not all of the official teachings on sexuality and gender issues
    -This would put me more towards the “complementarian” side of the complementarian/egalitarian spectrum than you are, but I still have my egalitarian tendencies as well.
    -Even though I am somewhat more conservative I really enjoy reading feminist blogs, particularly those that don’t demonize people who are skeptical of some aspects of feminism. I obviously don’t know what it’s like to be a woman and I appreciate people like you who stand up for what you believe in.
    -If I had to put up with half the nonsense a lot of female bloggers do, I’d probably be in the mood to demonize people too. It’s just really frustrating on my end that some of them are unable to shift gears from “Let’s be snarky and smack down ignorant misogynists that deserve to be smacked down,” to “Let’s try to engage people who actually want to engage in civil debate and convert them to our side, instead of just calling them misogynists, as if that’s going to change their mind.”
    -I never heard of Mark Driscoll before I read the front page of your “hall of shame” section, but wow am I outraged by his hateful rhetoric. I apologize for the fact that women have to deal with people like him.

    I think you might be interested in these two “apostolic letters” by the late Pope John Paul II about women and feminism. You can feel free to read/blog about them today, two weeks from now, when you turn 40, any time in between those three options, or never. I just thought you might like to know they exist:

    http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/letters/documents/hf_jp-ii_let_29061995_women_en.html

    I think that’s enough for now. You can expect some more comments from me in the near future, once you write some new stuff that provokes me enough to comment…either in agreement or in disagreement.

      Hello there, Alex! Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and share your thoughts! Ahaha, good ole Wendy Shalit..good times.

      I do sometimes get on a snarky tangent, but you’re right, that’s not necessarily the best way to win people over. In its defense, a major benefit of snark is that it’s therapeutic and calms one’s urge to smack the crap out of someone. I do believe that recognizing misogyny for what it is and naming it plainly is one of the very first steps needed to change a system of male dominance, but it’s certainly not the last step, and it’s not where I want to end my contribution, either. On Driscoll: I do think he’s full of crap, but I promise I don’t have some kind of vendetta going, and the only reason I’ve singled him out among a myriad of other misogynistic religious leaders is that he’s an excellent example of a theology I find really damaging, and he appears to keep a pretty good following in the Christian realm. There is one thing I enjoy about Driscoll, however: his foul mouth. I love how he’s opened up conversation on language and Pharisees and stupidity. It’s SO much fun to see uber-conservative evangelicals defend to the death Driscoll’s swearing!

      Holy War and Peace, Batman, I’d love to read those letters, but I don’t have time tonight. Or this weekend at all, probably. Hahaha. But thanks for the links, I just barely skimmed them and they look interesting!

      As for future comment-provoking posts, I’ve got one in the works about why I believe people should stop writing Bible studies for women and Bible studies for men, and I’ve got a good old-fashioned Facebook comment war on abortion. And part three of the Bathsheba series that for some reason I forgot to finish, haha. And a look at how the words we use to describe women and men in themselves perpetuate inequality. Don’t know if any of that’s up your alley or what, but your thoughts are welcome anytime! See you ’round. :]
