Dr. Brown, please don't be afraid of "being redundant," Christians need to be speaking up about these things. There IS a war on gender and people need to know the truth. When society and culture are lying to us, it's good to be reminded of what is right. Our culture wants women to "do anything a man can do" and it tells them they don't need men. They are trying to erase strong men. Or even have men out of the picture altogether. The radical feminists talk about “toxic masculinity,” but it is not masculinity that is the problem, it is sin, and both men and women commit sin. A contributing opinion writer for The International New York Times, Mona Eltahawy, actually urges girls and women to pursue “justifiable” violence against men. She said, “now I’m using this word imagine, and I’m underlining it three times - a scenario in which we kill a certain number of men every week. How many men must we kill until patriarchy sits across the table from us and says “OK, stop. What must we do, so that you can stop this culling?” Mona Eltahawy is not the only one spreading negativity and bias against men. The war going on in our culture against men/masculinity has weighed upon my heart. Ultimately, I believe the war on gender is an attack on our Creator who made us in His image. Masculinity and femininity are both good, created by God. The feminists love to talk about the problems of men, but they ignore the good in men. What about the men who are hard workers, good fathers and loving husbands? There are men who have risked their lives to save someone else’s life. There are Godly men like Dr. Brown. Boys need to see such examples of men and to have heroes to look up to. Rather than the feminists disparaging and demeaning men, we would be a better place if men and women saw the good in each other and appreciated each other and pointed people to the Savior who died for us.
