I’ve been preoccupied with a section of twitter that is focused on gender, specifically issues of masculinity, and gender roles. I can’t stop looking at it and I don’t know why. I want to say that the men inhabiting these spaces are attention seeking and wrong in what they’re doing, and that the way they’re proclaiming some partial truths about Jesus and Christianity are harming the church.
But I don’t know how to articulate this. My brain can’t coalesce around a central idea to pick at. I need to find a way to slow it down and pick it apart to tease something out. It all seems to go along with a right wing political attitude that brings with it all of the weirdness you’d expect. And it’s also very agrarian and rural and backward looking. It feels like a retreat to more a more black and white era.
