If you like The NakedJournal, you'll enjoy my weekly newsletter about deconstruction, freedom, and life in general.
"Is a degree worth the loss of your daughter's purity, dignity, and soul?"Fear. Make people afraid and they will do stupid things. I like one of the comments left by a woman:
"So, please, what is an 18yo girl to do then? Bag groceries till a prince charming comes along to give a few kids?"I believe all the comments oppose the post. One commenter claims that this isn't the authorized teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. It doesn't matter. Sexually abusing boys isn't either. These kinds of things are what find avenues for expression in such institutions. Not just Roman Catholic, but across the religious and denominational spectrum. Either stupidity is increasing or the publication of it. Let's hope it's just the latter. However, the publication of stupidity increases its popularity. It may normalize it. I wrote a post yesterday, Silence as Key to Pastor Dad Mark Driscoll's Ministry in which I critique his view of women and the role women are expected to play in his congregation. So it is not a marginalized suppression of women we are talking about here, but one that seems rather popular in some circles and growing in others. We live in a time when misogyny awareness is increasing but also when misogynist leaders are being chosen to lead countries and other institutions. This should concern us.
